    Well surely it does affect the pages with crawl errors. It simply means that google's spider cannot reach your page (at given time or all the time), so it cannot index/reindex it, hence if not indexed at all you cannot expect any rankings...
    Just check each and every error and fix it. It could be some temporary problem with your server being down for example when they tried to crawl it.

    Hello,

    It surely affect on keywords as if your pages are not crawled timely than any updates on pages are not crawled by the Google bot.

    Thanks:)

    It's the software they use to visit sites/pages all across the web, see what's there and put it into a databse (an ever-changing one) in order to display the current results for particular searches.
    Imagine it as a snapshot of your current page content. However, the ranking factors are quite more, starting with the backlinks to that page/site.

    Just fix the crawl errors for a start :)
    Maybe you have some invalid/broken links/URLs?
    Also such message will appear if someone linked to your site in an incorrect way (to an URL that doesn't exist). If that is the case just ignore it...

    Yes, it scans it (as well as any other search engine) in order to find out what info is out there, classify it/rank it and display it as a seach result for certain terms (keywords).
    Also it scans/indexes only where you are allowing it to do so - have a look around DP or anywhere about robots meta tag.
    As I said above, the rankings do not depend only on the content itself, but it is a must start...otherwise what would you offer to your visitors?

    Google prefers pages without crawling errors and gives them higher ranking.

    No, crawl errors do not affect rankings if they are small in number. They are only meant to improve user experience.

    Meta tags like title and description tells the search engine bots what your website is all about. It also serve as your snippets in results page.
