How can i remove <meta name="keywords" content="keyword"/> from head through layout.xml?

This is not possible via layout.xml, you have to copy the template file page/html/head.phtml to your theme and remove the following line:

<meta name="keywords" content="<?php echo htmlspecialchars($this->getKeywords()) ?>" />
  • Thanks for the speedy response! I am tweaking a small SEO module and was looking for a unobtrusive way to remove the keywords tag.Would it be possible to do through an observer that gets access to the head block? I tried to get something like this working but could'nt -> $headBlock->removeItem('meta_name','keywords') Feb 18, 2015 at 16:43
  • @Sebastianlockwood not without any black regular expression magic since there is no extra block or event for the meta keywords.
