Search: Meta tags are irrelevant?

Earlier in the day, I was reading about meta tags while thinking of ways to improve SEO on Celtics Down Under.

My reading topic for the day produced this surprising tidbit: meta tags are not so useful in search these days, because search engine algorithms (notably search giant Google) tend to ignore them.

The keywords meta tag could be, and was, abused. So most search engines pay no attention to it (some never did, and some used to but don’t anymore)
