    As I understand it the major search engines ignore META keywords but some of the many minor search engines still check them. It probably will make little or no difference in organic traffic if you leave them out.

    Meta tags still play quite a big role in your site's SEO. Meta tags are the words that are hidden in your code and helps google to crawl your page.

    Meta tags are the words that are hidden in the code. The search engines read them for it to have a simple, summarized idea of what your site is about and what exactly your keywords are.

    Meta Tags are the html tags which sites in head part of the website and tells the crawler or bots that what is our webpage about. It should related to our website product or services. Using keyword in meta tags helps us to rank in search engine but we should use it carefully. Don't do keyword stuffing in meta tags but it should be meaningful.

    The importance of meta tags is that the search engines read them in order to compare if these keywords and the description are related with the visible content.

    Only Bing & Yahoo use Keywords in metatag. But you have to put keywords in title & description too. As per latest Google update, Google is not considering meta descriptions.

    Already our friends defined the meaning of meta tags, i would like to mention one thing that meta tags are essential and you should add meta title, meta description and meta keywords to any web page, so that crawlers will understand that language of meta information, which is fundamental for any search engine to collect and index the search results data.
