What are your iPhoto and Aperture versions? If you have the latest versions, that support a unified library format, you can simply open your Aperture library in iPhoto instead of exporting from Aperture to iPhoto. The places will be available in iPhoto.
But if you have earlier versions of iPhoto and Aperture, make sure that you export in a format, that will support the metadata tags that you assigned, for example jpeg. And export the versions, not the original file. The original files will not have the metadata tags included, unless you write the metadat to the master image files or include them when exporting.
