Is anyone else afraid of adding summaries to their hubs?


In general, my hubs that have a summary do not do as well as my hubs that do not have a summary. All of my best hubs do not have summaries. I know it is suggested to add a summary to every hub but this makes me afraid to. Is anyone else having this experience?

    Claudia, I'm sorry! I hope I haven't discouraged you...If your hubs are doing okay, I wouldn't take the summaries off just because of this question.. I just wanted to know if others experienced it.

    Google displays the summary if the key phrase is found within the summary (which is displayed as the META description), so key phrases in summaries are a good idea. You don't get better rank in the results, but you do get better click through rate.

    Thanks Sherry.. This is exactly what I have been thinking:) I need to go through and look at the first paragraph of my hubs and see which hubs need one and which ones don't.

    Yes, this makes a lot of sense to me. Perhaps I have not mastered writing a good summary yet. Right now, I am better off not adding one at all than adding one that is so-so. This is what I figured may be going on with it. Thanks for the reply!

    It is just something that I notice when I look at my list of hubs.. My top 10 hubs hardly ever have a summary and the ones that do have a summary end up with a hubscore of 70's and below.
