    I think yes, the reason behind my thought is bots and crawlers will read a script only whether it will be Java, php or html as they are programmed. Now if you are adding a keyword in meta tag it will help those bots and crawlers to find your website easily.

    Yes meta-tags are important, but don't expect they will help your keyword ranking so don't overuse keywords. There are many other ways apart from meta-tags that Google uses to determine what your site is about and what should be the SERP. So just prepare a user-engaging content that users would like to click in case it shows up in results.

    I think it does affect your ranking..
    It explains waht is your site is about and this is good in SERP

    Cisanupam is right. Don't overuse your keywords.
    Use keywords density.. your keywords may be in 10-15% density on your meta tag

    if we will not give meta tags, it is showing something different in Google search results.

    Previously Google bots used to give importance to meta tags but not now. They are only useful for Yahoo and Bing.

    As per your data Google doesn't care about meta tags, but it is showing the meta tags description in it's search results, so how can we understand this theory?

    Yes, Meta tags has impact on rankings. In fact a huge impact. My favorite meta tags to get effective results are description and robots.

    Google still does give importance to meta tags. The only uneffective meta tag is "keyword". Apart from that almost all meta tags are effective. the Meta description tag is unavoidable one.

    Yet Google has not started punishing lengthy data in meta tags. Googlebot just ignore the characters after the max character limit in meat.

    You cannot ignore the importance of meta tags. Meta tags include the description and keyword that tells Google bots the type of content on your site and for which keywords you are working.

    In my view meta tags are important in Google ranking it places a big role while doing S E O to your website. Meta tags are hidden tags in the code and it can't be seen by the people who browse your site. The meta tags which we often use are title,description and the key words.

    Meta tags are important for search engines, so we must place meta tags on every pages of the website that are relevant to the page topic. While other things are also important in SEO for promotion which are above meta tags.

    I found this from some blog post. and they were correct too

    Meta tags are the words that are hidden in your code. People browsing your site will just not be able to see them. It is, as Danny Sullivan puts it, a ‘legal’ way of hiding words in your webpages for search engines. The search engines still read them for it to have a simple, summarized idea of what your site is about and what exactly your keywords are.

    The meta tag is not used nowadays. Meta description will help you to increase keyword impression and help to visitors whether click or not.

    Though meta keywords tag and meta description tags are not the main factor search engines consider when ranking sites, they should not be left off the page. A meta description tag is supposed to be a brief and concise summary of your page's content. A meta keyword tag is supposed to be a summary list of the most important words on your page.
