    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.

    This is true for the META Title and META description tags.

    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.
