meta tags are the relevant keywords which helps Google to tell that what is your website is related to and this helps the website to rank well for the targeted keywords. meta tags should be chosen sharply so that they best define website page and help the site to rank well.

Yes meta tags are highly useful and helps greatly when done right, all meta tags that are used must be well thought of and not abused to trick user agents. Also, if you want to use meta robots tag for Google, then make sure you use it like this,
for all other user agents use:
<meta name="robots" content="index, follow" />
for Google use:
<meta name="Googlebot" content="index, follow" />
Also, if you are using title (which you should) then it is best practice to keep it 64 characters long (use ms word to see how many characters you have in the title, makes it easy)
then comes the description meta, which should be 150 characters long (and actually describing the page content, since many seo pexperts abuse this feature by placing keyword after keyword to trick search engine rankings etc, but never can you trick Google)
Also your home page description meta tag can (& should be more than 150 characters long) I find that having 150 characters followed by a full stop still shows up in Google result set when someone searches) but it is never guaranteed to show in Google results, since it can just show any snippet from the web page itself. But following simply rules achieves greater chance for Google to show your description tags.
Also, if you are focusing on local consumers in your area then look into geo location meta tags mine are like this:
<meta name="geo.region" content="AU-VIC" />
<meta name="geo.placename" content="South Yarra" />
<meta name="geo.position" content="-37.847019;144.995472" />

I hope these search engine optimisation insights add value to this seo community

Meta-tags are HTML tags that can be used to identify the creator of a web page, what HTML specifications a web page follows, the keywords and description of the page, etc

Meta tags are HTML codes that are inserted into the header on a web page, after the title tag. They take a variety of forms and serve a variety of purposes, but in the context of search engine optimization when people refer to meta tags, they are usually referring to the meta description tag and the meta keywords tag.

 understand what META tags are and what they do.
My question is, what does the term META stand for and/or where did the term come from that is now used in web design?

Meta Tags are HTML tags used to control your site description in the search engines that support them: Google, Yahoo, MSN Search, AOL Search, AltaVista, AllTheWeb (FAST), HotBot, Lycos, Infoseek (Go), Excite, and WebCrawler. It is important to have well made meta tags because they can help increase your Search Engine Position.  :) ;)
