    No it's not important anymore. But it doesn't harm too does it?

    On page optimization is vital; metatags might not have the same devastating effect they did 5 years ago, but they do still make a difference. Implement them and together with other onsite factors you will have a nice site ready to climb the serps.

    "Meta tags" is a general term. You don't need "Meta Keywords" any more, because Google no longer takes them into account, however, as g0g0l rightly stated, it doesn't do any harm keeping them in, plus apparently Bing still uses them as a ranking factor.

    Not too sure on that. Sorry for being a SEO n00b especially with other SEs. Google has freaking changed the game LOL.

    Meta tag consist of Meta Title, Metal Description and Meta Keywords.

    Your screenshot shows meta keywords. Google ignore it long time ago, but it doesnt hurt your rankings too. So why not include it?

    Still Meta title is important for a website to boost up your ranking in search engine page result. But i don't thing so about Meta description and Meta keywords. Meta description - For impression and click the link not for search engine but still display in search result, make sure that use quality and impress description in order to attract the users to click on a link. Meta Keyword - Its no go longer available only for our purpose we can add too.

    All the best :)

    I don't include meta keyword in my sites, as my competitors could grab what keyword I'm targeting faster.
