Metatags for SEO use

Webpage metatags

With the constant evolution of how search engines determine the relevance of websites, metatags are fading from main stream website design. Still, there are search engines that make use of the metadata, text below the clickable search result links.

Once users find the metadata, or information, useful chances of them visiting your pages increase sufficiently. Also, these search engines still use the metadata formulas to rank web pages.

So these metatags are a tool that web masters use to give users and search engines an idea what their website is about. Due to these metatags, search engines are able to identify the relevance of your website depending on the themes and topics in your content. Overall, metatags will not hurt your site and may still help you bringing in more traffic.
