It was a demonstration that Google doesn't index them. The #1 result is my use of Lawnsite's keyword tag (via content, not the tag) in a 2012 post on the topic.

Because it's a waste of 5 minutes that can be better spent on something else? I guess I'll address it from a different angle than it just being a wheel-spinning time-waster.

From a beneficial-to-me standpoint, I like them. Takes 5 seconds to scrape the targeted keywords that my closest 50 potential competitors have on their own lawn care sites. It's a one-stop-shop for competitive intelligence. If your competitor has an SEO working for them, that's worth anything, it's in their mix of tools to beat you, too. It's just becoming less valuable because those that know what they're doing (likely the ones I want to pass in rank) don't make it that easy anymore. For those, we still have file names, TITLE and alt's.
I know lawn & landscape marketing, branding, and web strategy. I'm not anonymous, I just don't self-promote.
