what does google ignore

Hello,

I did some research and found that google doesn't accept meta keywords. But why it didn't accept anything (meta title, meta description) from my website moystudio.com? Other engines (yahoo, msn) did...

What do you mean "google doesn't accept them"?

Metatags, while used somewhat are not Google's primary means of ranking a site.

I read somewhere that google totally ignores meta keywords, while other engines use them... but why google ignored my page title?

Goggle doesn't ignore them. Google just doesn't value them as high as other engines. If you have a page titled "Blueprint.htm" and nothing on the page relates to blueprints, Google doesn't think the page is related to blueprints so it ignores the page title. The key to good search engine optimization (SEO) is to have page titles, page content, links in, meta tags all relating to the same topic.

so as I understand google "ignored" all my meta tags because there was no connection between meta tags and content... because if you google moystudio you will see that it ignored meta...

You will not get listed in Google just by meta tags.

Google, and some other search engines, use snippets to generate descriptions, rather than meta tags. Often these snippets are sourced from ODP.
You can tell several search engines not to use ODP by including the meta tag:
Code:
<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOODP">
However, you say it works on Yahoo and MSN, which also use ODP. In this case, your site is not yet indexed by ODP. But it might be eventually, so you should include that meta tag anyway.

Google also generates its own snippets without ODP. You can tell it not to with:
Code:
<META NAME="GOOGLEBOT" CONTENT="NOSNIPPET">
This would be what Google is currently indexing your page with. Once you add the code to ignore it, wait for the bots to crawl you and Google should be using the meta description instead.
