i want to search the net and i seem to remember that there was a search engine that uses the meta tags for its results, or can you force google to look just for the meta tags, as i do a search but get so much rubbish back especially in our socially display every thing google.
so want to cut down the rubish being returned so any idea on the search engine or way to achieve the result, as in "cancer development" to return more pin point pages

Because keyword 'meta' tags became filled with garbage many years ago, search engines tend to ignore anything in them that is not also found in the page content.  Here's the Google page on the subject: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/79812?hl=en   And more here: http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/09/google-does-not-use-keywords-meta-tag.html

You forgot https://duckduckgo.com/ and http://www.bing.com/

More of a search knowledgebase http://www.wolframalpha.com/

Otherwise, what Dave said.  If you think you get rubbish now, if you use meta tags you will get rubbish times 1000.  There is a reason meta tags are no longer used for results-it is because in the beginning people figured they could influence search by changing the meta tags to something popular that had nothing to do with the site.  You are not going to get much better then google, bing, duckduckgo.  If you really want cancer, then a cancer specific research site would be a good place to start.

i was working on the principle that dont care if google does not use meta better if it does not as fro terms like cancer what spammer would use that term in the meta tags, sex and videos yes but cancer would be a long shot, this was my thinking , just an idea probably incorrect
