ZT Policy - Spam. Self promotion is Ok but not as your first post. Establish yourself as a contributing member of the forum first and then we might be inclined to listen a little closer.

For everyone else, if you really want to make an information post, please add lots of white space to make things more readable. Blank lines should separate paragraphs and any links should visually stand out from the text.

As far as search engine ranking is concerned, Meta tags add little to no value. Only meta description tag used as part of snippet..

Meta description is very important, but how about meta tags? I heard that it is not important anymore. Is it true?

meta descr is quite important. However it takes a lot more to get a page rank better. Few to mention are:
content
internal linking
h1 tags
title
etc etc

and dont forget backlinks.

Adding a Meta description tag, a unique one, for each page, Google uses that information as extra criteria to determine the uniqueness of the page.

I think that using unique, relevant description meta tag to each page keeping it between 25 and 150 characters in length are effective for search engine optimization.
