    Yes, meta tags still work for SEO in 2015. It helps search engines to easily index and understand your web page. Google has made it clear to the people that content in the meta title and description has no direct effect on search engine ranking but it can affect it indirectly. While searching anything on the search engines, you will see the meta description and title on the search engine results which will help the user to decide that on which link to click. Thus, a valuable and unique description will help in improving your website ranking.

    Surely do add some relevance to your website both for users and search engines. But keyword tag is not gaining that much importance than it is used to get in previous years. Content is always treated as a king still and focusing on the content more is what you should throw some more light.

    There are some sites that don't have meta tags but still they are gaining rankings. That is due to the H1 tags on your website and how relevantly it is placed.

    Meta tag is very helpful for the search engine as well as for the users. Search engine can understand what the page is all about and also it gives meaningful information about the pages to the users.

    As most of the search engines are not giving priority to meta keywords. But other than this it is good practice to write meta tags for all the pages.

    Yes, they still work and I think it's still important to set them up well. But they are still not the most important, because that's always going to be the content, so while you still use meta tags in 2015, also make sure that your content is still unique.

    Yes they are still important for SEO.

    But, I would disagree with you when you say SEO is becoming more difficult.

    SEO is actually becoming a lot easier to understand and work with!!!

    It is easier to rank good quality content today than it was before.

    Before, the algorithm allowed crappy content to be able to rank at the top of search results. Today, only quality content can rank at the top of search engines.

    And that is how it should always be!!

    Search engines are now rewarding the TRUE Quality Content Online. So, the people who work hard on delivering the best content, wins! ..

    If your content is crap, no matter how many backlinks and backlinking strategies you do, it will be hard to rank it. If your content is so so valuable and unique, you can rank up even without any backlinks or any backlinking strategies!

    SEO is becoming a lot easier to understand and work with today!! ..


    I wish you the best of the best!

    Keep up the great work for sure!

    Cheers!

    Meta tags are and always have been an important part of SEO but they have no value on their own i.e. they become valuable in relation to other complementary signals. Inbound links, engagement, outbound links, quality of content etc etc.

    There are three main ingredients: 1. Quality Content, 2. Good Inbound Links, 3. Optimised On Page SEO or Meta Data. Get those three things right and you will rank.

    I see a lot of clutter here... Sorry, it's very easy
    Title: Yes, it's important for SEO (those keywords are really impotant)
    Keywords: No, they don't have any kind of effect
    Description: It doesn't improve your SEO but it will affect your click through rate. It's important that it describes your page perfectly and it includes your main keywords as they will be highlighted if your page shows up in serps for those keywords.

    Meta Tags will work always. It depends on the quality of the webcontent and page authority. Dont expect if you have meta tags updated and content in your webpage it will easily start ranking. Thats totally different case, If you have crap content (duplicate or irrelevant to the page) and has a different meta then you will never get ranked for such type of pages. So choose variation in meta and content too. Think smartly now as Google is going smart and its algorithm is updating all the time for freshness.
