Explain to me what META tags matter in today's world.?
In my opinion meta description and meta robots.
All of them. Someone might say that the meta keywords don't matter anymore, but take note that Google has been the only search engine that has mentioned that they're not using those as a factor in ranking a site in the search results. It could still matter in other search engines. When you mention SEO, a lot of people are usually fixated in Google, but that shouldn't be the case. You should also take note of the other search engines.
Meta tags should be used if you want traffic from search engines. Google don't give much importance to meta tags but there are many other search engines which do consider this important tag. Google will not penalize you if you use meta tags. Don't stuff the keywords in meta tags.
After many years of spammers exploiting meta tags, they're pretty ineffective these days. Still I make a point of using meta description and meta keywords in case any smaller search engines are taking those into consideration. They're definitely not as important as they once were.
Meta Tags were originally designed to provide webmasters with a way to help search engines know what their site was about. This in turn helped the search engines decide how to rank the sites in their search results. Unfortunately, webmasters over the years have abused it that search engine creators have had to de-emphasize their importance in their algorithms.
Title meta is one of the thing that very important in SEO for getting high rank of website in search engine apart from it meta description has one of the important factor in SEO.
Meta tags help to know webmasters what their site was about and it's not visible to readers.
