    If Google ignores meta tag keywords - then why does Hubpages still offer keywords for hub?

    My guess would be to help with site searches.

    Tags for hubs are not part of the metadata of a hub. They are there because they're part of the hub's on-page content. It helps search engines with indexing the content properly.

    For internal indexing within hubpages. 

    You can use these keywords yourself for your RSS feeds to interlink your hubs in an auto-updating way. 

    Additionally I'm not sure whether 'related hubs' on the right of any page is generated through the meta tag keywords... but it's certainly possible. 

    My tactic is to put in a few tags for each of my hubs, but not to get hung up on them.

    Whilst Google doesn't pay much attention to the keyword meta tags, Yahoo, Bing, MSN and a load more still do use them (they are important in terms of SEO). Whilst these engines have lower traffic, they shouldn't be forgotten about.
