Did you the %age of publishers using Google News Keywords Meta Tag is just 5%?
Well, this fact comes as a surprise to many of us. But it is a reality that the news keyword meta tag launched by Google keeping in mind to improve the chances of ranking the words used by the news publishers has had an adoption rate of mere 5% (as per the statistics provided by Blekko, a competitor of Google search engine).
Although, when Google’s representatives were asked regarding this, they did not give any response and declined to answer the question. However, Blekko has been successfully crawling the web to find out pages that have adopted these news Meta tags. In fact, they have also released a report regarding the same.
The report shows that until date, i.e.21st December (the day the report was published on the web), 2,465 domains were found using news keyword tags on their pages, which comes as a big surprise.
