Meta tags are important for Search Engines results. Especially Google. You have to make sure that the keywords also appear in your article for optimial results.

I'd have to say, if someone actually did a competitive analysis and relied on meta keyword tags to bid on ppc terms, then it obviously isn't a professional who's doing the analysis. It's an interesting theory, but only a real novice or inexperienced marketer who simply grab keywords from a competitors website to use. It is useful to examine a competitors website all around, and yes look at meta tags, but even if you did have really good optimization with valuable terms in your meta tags, it's not going to be easy for your competitor to utilize them especially in SEO.

I also find that using long tail keywords has helped me with driving niche traffic to my site. Mostly to my Clothing and Equipment site.

This is where backlinks work. Search engine algorithms hence try to bring equality and rule out the possibility of keyword stealing by making it a point that though 100 people might have keywords, but the one which satisfies many other criterias, that is the one that succeeds.
