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!
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.

Are too many tags on an individual hub a bad thing? Do they "water things down"? And how many is too many?How many do you usually use on each of your hubs, and why?Thanks!
