At first, I've learned that yoroshiku means nice to meet you. But then I saw it used in different cases with different meanings. So what are these meanings?

    What does ございます have to do with this question? – istrasci Mar 28 '16 at 2:47

よろしく comes from the word 宜しい, which means good or acceptable, and came to be used to express consent or convenience of the listener. As such, a rough translation might be "if you find it acceptable" or "if it is convenient for you ". For example, 「よろしくお願いします」 might, outside its use as a greeting, be translated as "I would like to make this request if you find it tolerable".
