    They're dead. Google extracts the keywords from the content.

    Description though is still alive.

    meta keywords no longer have SEO value for get them.

    Focus on your content and/or meta description be sure to use your keywords in a way that would make sense just so they will appear natural.

    They have value, but for g00gle can harm instead help when over-used, so if you are not sure what you do skip them.
    Have tons of "site scrappers" directories (whois like), that use them as content. Some of them provide links to your site - you want the link to have relevant content around.
    Else g00gle don't give a fact for them direct from long time, but they are still content in the html code.
