Has the new template for Hub writing greatly decreased the amount of text you can have in the Summary section -- to 140 characters or so? Or has it always been this way?
And if it has been reduced now, does that mean if I have keywords in the Summary beyond that 140 character limit (that have been automatically cut off), can my Google rankings drop because those keywords have been cut off?
Will I have to re-do my summaries now?
I hope someone from the HubPages team can address this. Thank you.
We only recently put an actual cap on the amount of characters that can be added to the summary box, because, as Reality Bytes points out, information beyond a certain limit (which varies per platform and search engine) doesn't do much good. Before that, we only provided written tips to keep summaries short... but it looks like a lot of people missed them!
Do it in sentence form, starting with a sentence that will hook them to go to article. Use your keywords in a natural way as part of a sentence in summary. Look in learning center for help and at other summaries as examples. Good luck.

Please do something to the filters so that Hub summaries as graphically-cluttered as the below can be found. This can't be helping.
