    The meta description IS a meta tag. Learn more about the meta tags here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meta_tag

    Next time you want to ask a question on the forum, please stop. Do your due diligence and search for answers first...

    Home Page:
    Yes, meta tag and meta description is important from Google point of view, because when result?s are shown on Google they take only title and description of that site in snippets. So, both are important.

    SEO is based on On page and off page optimization, regarding the on page optimization first thing a SEO person will see the "META TAG".

    Meta tag comprises:

    Meta Title,
    Meta Description and
    Meta Keyword.

    Each meta tags have the characters limit to promote a unique website. The meta tags are more important while crawling and getting indexed by Google.

    Actually, the only one that matters for SEO is the title.

    The description only counts as words on the page, it doesn't help rank.
