You don't have to put anything in there.  That's just in case you have something you want to insert in the HTML head section such as tracking code, or scripts, etc.  It's 100% optional.

Ok. Do i have to put a description of my website inside or enter some keywords for search engines in this box ?

Yes, that's exactly the types of things you can add in that HTML head section field.

However, I *think* all the BE pages are currently setup to output META keywords and a description on all the pages.  So if you were to add your own Keywords or Description, the page would end up having multiple Keywords and/or Description meta tags.  This is probably good to avoid.  You can check via View Source in your browser to see if there are Keywords and Description meta tags.

So you probably don't need to output that, but there might be something else you need to output at some point.

Yes, I see that same thing when Googling your site.  Not sure why ... it's up to Google how they display their results.  Often in that area of Google results, they show the META description tag.  Yahoo results looks more normal.

I don't know if i look at the good place but when i display the source of the page, i don't see any description or keywords meta tags. Can you confirm that ?

my mistake i see what you mean. Something like

<meta name="keywords" content="Office 2010,Activation,MAK" />

I guess, i'll have to put better tag then
