When I go to edit my hubs or go to start a new hub I see that the keyword tags are not there and there is no option to add them. Is this only happening to me? Or is this a new change on HubPages that I don't know about?
Tags were retired. You can learn more here:

It is a new change, apparently Hubpages decides what the tags are for you. I didn't like the idea at first, but for me it was a good thing as after the change, I noticed my traffic went up. I guess I hadn't used the best tags
You can still see which keywords people are searching for which leads them to your hubs. If you don't know how to do this......Go to your list of hubs, click on a hub, at the top comes a row of options, eg edit if you want to edit your hub, or traffic for the day, week, months each, plus a search option. This shows the list of keywords that people have typed in. I am glad they kept this as I use it to generate new hub ideas.
Thank you for the info guys... Sometimes it is hard to figure out exactly which keywords to tag to the hubs so having it done automatically for us seems like a good idea. Whether that will benefit us in terms of traffic is yet to be seen.
I asked the same question not long ago and was told that tags are no longer used.

Suppose I have 10 hubs in a same niche. I have 30 tags for each hub where 25 tags are common for all. Is it a good idea? Will I compete with myself in one point of time? What do you do in this case? Suppose the hubs...
