I'm not a meta tag expert (in fact I'm using deadlock for the meta tags and search-engine placement on my site), but here's what I saw:
There are a few problems:
1) Get rid of the extraneous META tags. IE: name="GENERATOR", name="Progold". Spiders don't need this type of info.
2) for the keyword list you have to use this format:
<META name="keyords" content="keyword list goes here"
<META name="description" content="description goes here"
You seem to have your keyword list both as the name and content, and you don't have a secription tag. Make sure you have these two tags at least, they are the most crucial.
Hope this Helps!
