Meta Description
The meta description tag tells a search engine the contents of your site in NO MORE THEN 160 characters. Most search engines will also display the meta description tag along with their search results. So instead of the first 160 characters a search engine finds on the site it will show your own custom description. This gives you an enormous amount of control. A good looking meta description will get you more visitors.

Meta Keywords
The meta keywords tag tells a search engine the keywords of your page. Over the last few years this importance of the meta keywords tag has declined and it has been rumored it will be abandoned by some search engines in the future. However today is still has enough weight to add this meta tag to your pages.
