    Meta tags include Title tag,description tag and keyword tag....The title tag is important because search engines use this information as your link in the search engines

    Description tag -this information isn’t generally used for any kind of search engine ranking, however it is often used as the text blurb that people see on their search engine results.

    but the keyword meta tag is not used at all by the search engines in determining a web page’s authority.

    Yes, meta tags are important for web ranking. Though Google does not count keyword meta tag for ranking but Yahoo and Bing still count for ranking.Meta title and Description tags are more important now.A good meta title and description can convert more visitor into customers.

    I feel they are still important to tell Google or other search engines what the page is about rather then the search engine decide what it is.

    Hi..Although in my opinion a lot of weightage is given to meta tags by the search engines in past, on the whole now they have become unimportant elements of a website.Now the search engines are only concentrating on the quality content of a webpage.

    It's true that search engine algorithm became smarter right now but still they are not human who can understand the content very well like human do so search engine still gives great value for the meta of the websites.

    yes it is,search engine look at the meta tags to show the users what the site has in every serp. What I think is spider crawl first meta tags before the real content so meta tags should be the focus on SEO second is the content which should be both unique.
