How many tags are allowed in a single hub?

    Is there any limit of using tags in a hub? Would it have any effect on the rating or score for use of more tags? I am just curious to know! sad

      Yes, it is possible to have too many tags, and to be penalized for it, but that shouldn't happen if you just use common sense.  The number of tags should be proportional to the length of the content, and all tags should accurately reflect what's in the hub.  Simple as that.

        Thanks Maddie Ruud for the response! Is there any benchmark for that e.g. some percentage of the total words or something?

          There's no hard-and-fast rule.  For a short poem, half a dozen probably will suffice.  For a hub with a lot of information, of 1000+ words, maybe as many as 30-40, depending on how much punch your hub packs.

    I would say 10-20, even if it's a 2,000-word Hub. That's my preference.

    12-20 for around 600 word hub. up to 40 for more than 1000 word hubs.
