I generally stay anywhere between 10-20, treating the meta keywords as a quick intro to the real content. In my experience, good search engine placement comes from contextual keywords, so when writing page copy be sure to use the relevant keywords as much as possible while not looking like you're spamming the search engines. It's a fine line. I'm sure the folks ion the writing section of this forum could point you in the right direction on effective copywriting.

Meta tags are snippets of text that describe a page's content; the meta tags don't appear on the page itself, but only in the page's code.
The four types  of meta tags:
- meta keywords attribute - a series of keywords you deem relevant to the page in question;
- title tag - this is the text you will see at the top of your browser. Search engines view this text as the "title" of your page;
- meta description attribute - a brief description of the page;
- meta robots attribute - an indication to search engine crawlers as to what they should do with the page.

There are many meta tags and html-tags and obviously they don't all influence the search result. For example the html cookie tag doesn't have any influence on your ranking with the search engines but the title of your page, the keywords and the description meta tag are very important. This list of meta tags and their influence will provide you with all the basic information.

There is a difference between html and xml. If you see at the end of a line " /> it means it is xml , if you see  "> it is html.

The most important meta tags and how to use them
 

<title>relevant and attractive phrase </title>

The title is the first (usually click-able) phrase you see as a search result.

<meta name="description" content="text">

A description of your website in 3 of 4 sentences.

<meta name="keywords" content="words">

A meta tag is a tag (that is, a coding statement) in the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) that describes some aspect of the contents of a Web page. There are many meta tags and html-tags and obviously they don't all influence the search result. For example the html cookie tag doesn't have any influence on your ranking with the search engines but the title of your page, the keywords and the description meta tag are very important.

1. Title Tag: <title>The title of the Page</title> (Unique title for your page)
Limit: Google typically displays the first 50-60 characters of a title tag, or as many characters as will fit into a 512-pixel display.

2. Description Tag: <meta name = "Description" Content="Description of the Page">
Limit: Roughly 155 Characters

3. Keyword Tag: <meta name="Keyword" Content="Your Keywords">

According to Google they didn't look at meta keywords then you will be surprised that why I am mentioning it here. It is here because 'Yahoo' search still use these in their SERP. So don't miss it because still have 28% search share so why miss these 28%.

4. Robots Tag: <meta name="robots" Content="......, ......">
The valid values for Robots Meta Tags 'Content' attribute are: "INDEX", "NOINDEX", "FOLLOW", "NOFOLLOW".
Examples are:
META NAME=”ROBOTS” CONTENT=”NOINDEX, FOLLOW”
META NAME=”ROBOTS” CONTENT=”INDEX, NOFOLLOW”
META NAME=”ROBOTS” CONTENT=”NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW”
META NAME=”ROBOTS” CONTENT=”NOARCHIVE”
META NAME=”GOOGLEBOT” CONTENT=”NOSNIPPET”

1.Page Title –

Long regarded as the most important on-page factor, the title tag has recently taken a lot of scrutiny. A recent post has determined that page titles aren’t limited to 70 characters, but rather pixel-width. Also a little further back Cyrus Shepard tested titles longer than 70 characters to see what Google would do. In the wild I’ve seen extremely long titles are oftentimes chopped down or rewritten algorithmically to display the most relevant text to a query.
Unless you want to measure the pixel-width of your titles and hope that Google shows the right thing, your best bet is to make page titles as keyword-relevant as possible and up to 70 characters. I honestly can’t think of a case where I’ve left something up to Google and they did a better job than I thought I could.

Format: <title>Up to 70 Characters of Keyword-relevant text here</title>

2.Meta Description – If your webpage were a commercial, this would be its slogan. In our upcoming search behavior study in cooperation with SurveyMonkey we’ve found that 43.2% of people click on a given result due to the meta description. Gone are the days of meta descriptions that listed keywords and just said the “Official site of…” and the main purpose of this text is to draw the user in, let them know what to expect if they click and convince them to do so with a strong call to action. The kicker is you get 155 characters to make it happen; think of it as like writing a tweet, but with 15 extra characters.
Format:

<meta name=”description” content=”155 characters of message matching text with a call to action goes here”>

3.Authorship Markup – As I predicted at SearchLove NYC in November 2011, and has been verified by Eric Schmidt, Google is going to rank content that is connected to authors that they deem to be reliable sources over content that is not. A cool visible incentive is that you get name and your pretty picture in the SERPs if you’re an author.

Now let’s look at the metatags that make the magic happen!

Rel-Author– This is a meta tag that can be implemented that specifies who the author of a piece of content is and uses Google+ to identify them. Initially Google rolled this out as just a tag that you place in the <head> of the code, but ultimately they would realize it’s not realistic that authors will have that type of control over the page and expanded to a more modular form.Format:For the version that goes in the <head> tag, you use the following:
<link rel=”author” href=”https://plus.google.com/[YOUR PERSONAL G+ PROFILE HERE]”/>
For the more modular version you would emulate XFN’s rel-me and place the link directly on the page. I’ve got to admit this is a great link building strategy.

<a href=”[profile_url]?rel=author”>Google</a>

If you use this method you will have to take the second step in verification by linking to your content from your Google+ profile. For more information see Google’s explanation.

Rel-Me – Rel-me is just the XFNversion of rel-author. You simply place the meta tag on a link back to your Google+ profile.Format:
<a href=”https://plus.google.com/[YOUR PERSONAL G+ PROFILE NUMBER]” rel=”me”>Me on Google+</a>

Rel-Publisher –Rel-publisher is for business entities to claim ownership of their content. This can be used in context with rel-author or in place of it, but you should be pointing to a business profile on Google+ rather than an individuals.Format:<link rel=”publisher” href=”https://plus.google.com/[YOUR BUSINESS G+ PROFILE HERE]”/>
Don’t be late to the authorship markup party as it would not be surprising to see Google wipe out the visibility of content simply because there are no verifiable authors connected to it.
