To what extent does ATW make use of meta tags?

Just wondering whether anyone can tell to what extent ATW makes use of META tags in its approach to web pages?

If so, which are the important META tags to use?

Only asking, as I had given up completing META tags with Google's apparent disinclination to use them. Now that ATW seems to be going places (and Google *perhaps* falling back a ways), I feel the need to reappraise the situation.

Anyone?

My take:
- title: important! for ranking
- desc: important for users as it shows on serps

I do include meta keywords, but currently don't see a positive effect.

Thanks heini,

I should say, I *have* been completing the <title> tag - I know that's essential for alll Search Engines, especially Google.

Now it seems I'll have to start a program of completing my Description tag.....

Any other META tags of major importance to ATW?

Anyone?

Nope, just the title, description and keywords. In that order of importance ;)
