Concerning summaries of hubs on your profile page, do you write a short one or just let the system?


I have noticed a lot of writers who do not write a short summary on each hub, but just allow the system to pull from the first words of that particular hub. On the statistics page, if you do not write a summary, it will have it marked as missing a summary. Which do you prefer and why?

    teaches, thanks so much for the answer. I have always written a summary, but then I kept seeing a lot who do not and wondered why.

    Thanks so much, talfonso, yes, I am not up to speed on the SEO yet. Still working on that issue.

    I appreciate you answering the question. I did not know all of this, but I have always written a very brief one-line summary.

    Thanks so much, Pollyannalana. That is what I have thought, as it is instructed to do so, but I have seen so many that just let it go. Appreciate you.

    Thanks so much for the answer. Yes, I think writing a summary is what we should do, but just wondered as I stated above.

    Melbelle, thanks so much for answering the question which is obvious the correct answer, as everyone has stated here. I have always written a summary, and thanks about adding the great point about length.
