Meta tags specify information about the page to the browsers, applications, and search engines. For example, if you are making a web page about repairing car engines then in the page head you could use

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Keywords" CONTENT="engine, motor, car">

This would allow someone to enter the words engine motor car in to their search engine and find your web page.

There is more that you can do with meta tags but this is the basic stuff.

META tags are the one providing information to the search engines with who is the author of the page and what is the mime type of the page and what is the page is about like that

<META http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

<META name="author" content="Rajaragavan">

<META name="keywords" content="Alcatel, Telephone systems, Telecom">
That means the above tag tells that the site is about the Alcatel telephone systems

<META name="description" content="Herecomes the description of the site">

And above all this you may come across some sites which they will say this site will refresh every 60 sec. like that, that is also achieved thru this tag. You can go to http://html-goodies.com site where you can find lot of information on HTML tags.

Hope this provides you what you expect.
