Keyword meta tags are included in the HTML code (source code) of each page:

The original purpose of a keyword tag was to help Search Engines understand the content of the page by listing the most important words within the text. Over time people began to take advantage of boosting their listings by placing popular keyword phrases within the keyword tag even if the corresponding page did not support these words. Today the major Search Engines are much smarter and able to read the content on their own in order to determine the main keyword phrases relevant to the text.

For this reason most people believe that the user submitted Meta Keyword Tags have very little value as they have little influence on major Search Engines rankings.

However, some smaller search engines still take the meta keyword tag into account when determining their rankings so it can be beneficial to still include the Keyword Tags.
