    I think header text is important. Mainly header text used at the top of the body part, so when google bot crawl any pages then they can easily understand what type of site it is and what type of information they will provide throughout the page.

    I think search engines doesn't give an important for meta tags anymore as it was abused by webmasters, so I don't think it's true what you said above websavy

    Actually its not depend on header tag but also the content and your layout/design must be neat because thats the most common reason why most people would really love to spend their time at your site

    Get your important headlines in <h1> and <h2> tags early in the page, and then make sure the meta keywords and descriptions are important and should reflect the content of the page.

    I would say following proper structure <h1>,<h2> and <h3> tags along with clean urls along with a good title with good content is all you need. Look at all the top sites no meta "keywords" or "description" to be found. As good has proven with adsense it depends on the content and titles for ads so SEO would hold true also.

    Just my opinion though
