Should I remove the Keywords tags?

I have put them first for SEO purposes but I don't know if they really help or harm my site

Here's a page example :

They are under Categories, it's called mots clés (in french). What you guys think, from an SEO perspective?

Due to rampant keyword tag spamming, no major search engine puts any weight on them.  I would remove the tag altogether.

Thanks Jason! But do you think it can harm?

Jason is correct.  No search engine believes the META keywords tag any more; it was and is abused too much.  However, some other META tags are actually useful; see the discussion at for further information.  (Though I doubt that Google believes the description tag.  Like keywords, it has been abused too much.)

Thanks Dr. Klahn. But here I was talking about my 'in page' keywords tags. I don't have any Keywords in Meta tags.

They don't weight it, but they may use it as the search snippet text.

But here I was talking about my 'in page' keywords tags

Those aren't technically keywords, those are more like tags.  If those were functional links that pulled all matching articles, then Google would weight it and also index the tag archives.  Without links, they are just text and could harm your SEO if Google decides they look spammy enough.
