Meta tags are not going to improve much your search engine rankings. Inktomi and Teoma are the only major players still supporting the keywords meta tag.
For successful SEO You should concentrate your efforts on contents, structure, good titles and get your site linked.

The meta keywords tag has been treated as kind of a magic wish list for way too long. I think only Inktomi even looks at it now, and I can't imagine that it will overcome page deficiencies or improve your rankings enough to justify the angst that most newcomers expend on it.
My feeling about the meta description is that if an engine doesn't display it, they don't use it much in their algorithm. Algos are increasingly about visible text on the page or in links to your page.
