    Is it worth to manually add meta tags to your website? It helps in SEO or it doesn't matter?

    Description tags good for user experience, title tags are important for seo

    I mean meta keywords. I read that few years ago they was really important, but what now? I don't have it on my website, should I add it?

    Exactly, what situation? :D Once I read that meta keywords should be added, then I read it doesn't matter or it is even worse for your ranking. That's why I am asking

    Install the Yaost seo plugin and fill out proper meta desc for Google. Including a relevant keyword to the page won't hurt. Over optimizing meta can cause issues according to what I've heard.

    Meta tags have lost their power in a big way on rankings over the past several years

    Yes, they do. Meta tags are snippets of text that describe a page’s content; the meta tags don’t appear on the page itself, it will improve traffic of your website but not all of them and not all of the time.
