I know we've talked about this before, but searching the forums did nothing for me. I have a bunch of questions about tagging our hubs.
Do adding more tags lower your hubscore? I usually just try to add everything I can think of, including misspellings, plural AND singular forms of words, and random phrases. Should I limit my tagging?
Should I include tag phrases that also appear in my hub, or is this just redundant? For example, if I have a hub about dog breeding (and I have several), and it says the phrase "dog breeding" in the hub several times, should I add that as a tag or not?
I'm just confused as to how much the tagging affects anything, or if it does. I appreciate any help, as usual.
This hub helped me with tagging. Seems to answer your questions. Best of luck, Helena!
That's perfect, Kenny. I knew someone would have a great resource like that. Thanks!!
If you have selected a key phrase that you have optimized with the plan to rank well in the search engines, be sure to include that phrase as a tag.
My pleasure, friends. It's a good idea to become a fan of 'hubpages' in its avatar as a hubber, also. Useful hubs there.
Thanks for the link. I've been just adding any word or phrases that relates to my hub. Now, I know a better way to go about it.
And there's a lot of hubs there about all the aspects of hubbing.

I have a tendency to sometimes to be "a little light" on the tag-adding, and I'm not at all sure I'm awfully skilled at creating my own.Question 1: Is there kind of an "approximate standard"...
