Until recently, I have always allowed the summary text to be generated by HP, but when I started adding my own summary text my traffic dropped. I know my keywords and topics are not big traffic generators anyway, but I was quite pleased with my traffic.
I have now gone back to letting HP generate the summary text and my traffic is back up, any thoughts???
I know this may also just be a fluke, but it is awfully coincidental.
Writing your own summary text is the equivalent of filling in the content meta tag, so to me not only is it important, but I've always done my own.
Thanks, I will try to refine mine then. It might just have been a coincidence or slow couple of days.

Does anyone have any definitive information on this as the SEO advice is rather mixed.Some say that googlebot looks for keywords in the first sentence. It also relates to the text displayed on the SERP. Of course there...
