When we create a new hub, we get to input relevant tags for the topic at hand.
Do these became part of the searchable content of the hub, or are they merely "internal," i.e. used by the hubpages search feature, and to create tag clouds?
I ask, because when I did a "show source" on one of my hubs, I noticed that the "summary" had become part of that hub's meta tags, but I didn't see my tags listed as "keywords."
Just curious as to how this works.
No, my understanding is different. Tags do not act like keywords on Hubpages. They are used to categorize hubs into topical lists like this http://hubpages.com/tag/psychology/hot
( I just clicked on a tag in one of you hubs to get there )
I am still trying to understand the "mechanics" of the site. It just makes more sense (to me, anyway) to figure this stuff out up front, rather than having to go in and do endless revisions later, after discovering I have been doing everything "wrong."
I guess that makes it even more important to carefully word summaries.
If meta keywords ever become important again we may put something in there based on how a hub is tagged. But they are largely ignored by search engines at this point.

My total current view count for "1 day" is less than the amount I usually get on a good day for my 2 top performers. I have 85 hubs, 17 on niche sites. Something is not right. Anyone else?

My Hubs get very little traffic and earn very little. Even adding my Hubs to Network Sites, did nothing. I am not that knowledgeable about how to increase traffic. I have posted them on Pinterest and Flipboard,...

I know that the choice of keywords is important. But can you have too many keywords? What is wrong with using every word you can think of?
