I'm currently developing some Magento2 themes. I noticed that in Magento2 Meta Keywords are still added. I want to remove this meta keywords from all pages, does anyone know the proper way to achieve this?

I did find meta.phtml, but I think this file is not used on a product page. Also the file Product/View.php adds the keywords with this function:


but I don't think it would be the prober way to extend the _prepareLayout function, right?



I just had to do the same and decided to just add a plugin after the getKeywords Method of the page config which returns an empty string. works great


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    <type name="Magento\Framework\View\Page\Config">
        <plugin name="removeMetaKeywords" type="Vendor\Module\Plugin\PageConfig\RemoveMetaKeywords" sortOrder="9999"/>

Plugin Class:

declare(strict_types = 1);
namespace Vendor\Module\Plugin\PageConfig;

class RemoveMetaKeywords
    public function afterGetKeywords($subject, string $return)
        return '';
  • and the entire <meta name="keywords"... is gone. :) Thanks – JustinP Feb 6 at 23:22

Easy to remove or edit default meta keywords at admin configuration:

Store > Configuration > Design [General] - HTML Head
  • I want it removed from all pages, so also the category and product pages. When you create a product, the meta keywords will be automatically filled and added to the product page. So changing the default meta keywords will not do the trick. – Silvan Jan 6 '16 at 7:12
