Meta tags can be used to put keywords and descriptions that related to the website topics. But since some search engines analyze NO keywords and description for their page rankings, These meta tags are hardly focused by most bloggers.
It's clear that the biggest search engine like Google doesn't analyze keywords and decsriptions in their page ranking calculation (http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/09/google-does-not-use-keywords-meta-tag.html).
However the meta tag for descriptions is still looked up by Google and used as snippets in Google SERP (like below image).

Getting it right is a nice perk for us, but won't rock your world. Abusing meta keywords can hurt you.
