      This is a crucial element in getting traffic from the Google search engine.  On HubPages, the 'Summary' is used as the Description Tag.  (See my Hub 'What is SEO?'.  From the Table of Contents, go to: 'III. A. 3. Meta Tags' and look for 'Meta Tag Description.')

        Use it as a sort of "teaser" to entice a person to want to read the article. It has to be pretty short, so you can't say much anyway. So make it interesting, to draw in the reader.

          Google will display only 160 characters (including spaces) and HP takes up some of that by displaying the date.  So, you need to make your best 'sales pitch' within a very few words to encourage searchers to click on your listing from a search results page.
