And Google or other search engine takes description from our websites based on the search query. And we can able to rank any website without placing Meta description and keywords on all the pages.

What is your thoughts on this?

I've been doing a little research on this, and there are many who seem to think that Google pays little to no attention to meta factors. It's something they stopped doing a while back because it was being abused.

As far as I understand, having a meta description is good because this is what your customers will see when they search your site, otherwise Google just uses copy from your page. So if you have a meta description, users will see "Click here for unbeatable cleaning services!" under the title for your website, instead of "Welcome to our unbeatable cleaning services website. My name is..."

But for ranking, the effects are nil.
