    Do you think meta keywords and description for website articles really helps seo? I use joomla for my projects and I'm a little bit confused. Do I need to fill up this info? Some seo guys say that it won't have any affect , whats your experience?

    They're basically useless as far as pagerankings go, but a well written, good meta description will encourage someone seeing your site on google to actually click on it

    I have always and will always put both tags into my pages. Although G claims they have no effect, the fact that they frequently determine your serp snippet from your meta desc, and that they use the meta desc as the description in Google+, indicate otherwise.
