    That's all pretty and everything, but its very basic. I'm left wondering how old it is. First thing my eye was drawn to was the "Hd+2" button describing meta description tags.

    http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/keywords-meta-tag-in-web-search/

    Matt Cutts says that meta description tags are not used whatsoever by Google for ranking purposes or SEO.

    Beyond that -- basic, but pretty.

    I don't believe they are either.

    But I also beleive a part of Matt Cunts job is disinformation - So all my sites have still got them - and they're still optimised.

    he is saying meta keyword tag is not used. But meta description tag is still having some impact in seo.

    Matt Cutts says this in responding to greywolf

    I read that as plainly saying that meta description tag does not affect SERP results.

    The only thing that is feasible is that Matt is spreading disinformation, which he does, but in this case I don't see any reason why he would.

    LOL they have started to offer SEO courses at the universities in my city.

    Me thinks I should print that Periodic Table out and start teaching.
    A different twist to the offline portion of IM Marketing :p

    I seriously doubt that he saying truth. I mean if you search you can see that the keyword from meta description is highlighted.

    Meta description is still good form marketing purposes because its often used for listing on SERP. And thru that, its SEO in my opinion. Getting people to click your link causing more visits and staying longer on your site which is the purpose of SEO.

    It's always possible Matt is lying -- no one knows for certain. Google loves to come up with their own snippet though, and honestly its usually better because it more effectively matches the longtail keyword someone is searching for, instead of the one we were targeting.

    I know Matt would lie about something like the effectiveness of backlink schemes or trying to manipulate your place in the SERPs through anything other than creating content and hoping someone will link to it ... but in this case I don't see how lying about meta tag descriptions would benefit Google in any way.

    Actually I want a thread on this topic and wish if he himself come and give us the answer

    Agreed. I always optimize my meta description to contain the main keyword along with a few related ones. Moreover a good and attractive meta description can improve click-through rates too. ;)
