The <meta> tag with a name attribute value of keywords, provides descriptive keywords of the contents of the webpage. This helps search engines index the webpage appropriately. Soon after the keywords meta tag was released, people started abusing this tag by stuffing irrelevant keywords in the element just to get more traffic. So currently, a lot of search engines don't use this element as much in their page ranking algorithm.
