    In another thread someone mentioned that there were both hubtags and meta tags, and i asked what the difference was, but they never replied. I thought there was only the tags in the side bar which i assume is meta tags? Where is hubtags?

      there are no accessible meta-tags at hubpages, there are only hubtags

      the other thread was suggesting that the information you had previously read about "tags" is not relevant at hubpages...they are not the same type of tags

        well actually i got that info from someone who knows quite a lot. he said you shouldnt use tags that you are not using in your hub, or else it could hurt you search engine ranking.

          then believe him, making money on hubs/online in general and seo practice are not my strong suits. Im just a prototype

          feel free to show me some more secrets including where the "meta-tags" are in the hubpages source code

          Yes it is true. Using irrelevant tags is considered as deceiving tags which can adversely affect your hub score. It mau cause flagging and deleting your hubs. If one make it a practice he or she may be banned from hubpages.

          It's important to remember that HubPages is not your own website.  A lot of the advice you'll get about making money online applies to writing on your own site , not on a revenue-sharing site.

          You don't have to worry about meta-tags on HubPages, because you can't access them or any other coding.

    Tags in the side bar are hubtags. These tags work as meta tags hubs.
    No confusion. It is similar.

    the original thread that the OP is referencing has all the answers he needs...they were explained well by many hubbers

    http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/37876#post866686

    i was only pointing out that when you read about "tags" in seo tutorials, it has nothing to do with "hubtags" ...its more similar to if you were reading about seo for wordpress design and that type of "tag"

    Jyoti is the first to use the word "deceptive" or "irrelevant" I believe the OP thinks he should only use tags/words that actually existed in his content

    this could be an english comprehension issue..we may all be saying teh same thing
