webmasters have abused meta tags so much that search engine creators have had to de-emphasize their importance in their algorithms.

A Meta tag is basically an HTML tag, whose job is to furnish data to search engines (SE) regarding the kind of information present on the webpage. The purpose of a Meta tag is to add information and steer the SE spiders. Meta tags are an important tool to search engine optimize (SEO) a website.

A Meta tag has 3 different attributes all of which play an important role in determining the search engine ranking of a webpage:

1. Content: The purpose of the content is to provide information in name/value pair.

2. Name: This is one-half of the "name/value pair". The name could be a keyword, author, copyright, robot or description.

3. Http Equiv: This is also the name in the "name/value" pair attributes. However, the server uses it on the MIME document header before the web browser sends the real HTML document. Commonly used http equiv. includes charset, expires and refresh.
