    Yes afcourse descriptions are important in seo. Descriptions tell about your product or company on search engines and we also use our targeted keywords in description.

    Meta tags or description is always viewed by search engine not users. But keyword is equally important. So, choose effective meta tags or write effective meta description....

    meta-description doesn't affect your rankings. the only thing why it's still important is CTR. It's still a valid strategy to use your keywords in the meta-desription, but for a different reason - keywords get bolded so it grabs extra attention and wins you more clicks, but as for ranking purposes it's totally useless.

    Meta Title, Description and Keywords play a vital role on how search engine robots view you site so I think you should still take time to research on the best meta tags for these.

    Yes, afcourse meta description and title are very important in seo. Well meta keywords doesn't play an important role in seo now days, because google don't give importance to meta keywords.
