Umm .... huh?? Meta description tags are sometimes used as description snippets in Google search results, so you want them to be human-friendly, but other than that, meta keywords tags are pretty obsolete nowadays.

There are other meta tags out there that serve various functions though, like meta name="robots", etc.

Meta Description is the first thing user reads and get to know about your website. Hence it plays an important role.

The search engines cannot know what a website is about if there is no meta tags for it. So how could such sits be ranked good.

Meta Tags are very important part of SEO. They plays important role in ranking a site in Search Engines. It helps search engine to identify your content. Meta Description provides a short description about the page with the keywords in it. And Meta Keywords are the list of most important words on your page.
