If I add tags like "bakugan, bakugans, bakugan toys, bakugan toy, bakugan balls,bakugan ball, bakugan review....", it can go on and on, all about a bakugan. Any idea if this would would have impact on your keyword density of the article therefore get penalized by SE? Or is it just tags that SE is smart to identify?
btw, I also noticed "related questions" on the right side, I think most of time they may not be related at all. Doesn't it have negative effect? Why non-related questions end up showing in my articles?
Less tags means chances of results come in top 10
more tags means less tarrif
Tarrif? You mean traffic?
As for the rest of your post, it sounds peculiar to me.
The title for this topic may be misleading. I'm asking whether too many repeated keyword in tags would cause problems. Hope for a bright answer. Thanks
Hi Snakebaby - I don't *think* it should influence keyword density.
I do know that each tag creates a backlink to your article and since your anchor text will be your keyword, that's good for your article.
If it matters, I've read posts by Hubpages Staff that said keywords should be optimized.
You can use up 20 keywords(max) for articles up to 1500 words.
For articles over 1500 words, you can use up to 40 keywords/tags.
Should you go over that or have 40 on a hub less than 1500 words, then you will be flagged for keywords/tags. You'll be forced to reduce the number.
I hope that helps give you a guideline.
On your related questions- if your tags are not related to your content, and you enter them. Then you can possibly be flagged for deceptive tagging.
Just an added thought.
Thank u very much, Cagsil, that really helped! It reminded me that I was warned couple of times when adding the tags, so I reduced them till no more warning presents. But today I removed some of the tags for few of my hubs in the new worry that it might hurt, since my newer hubs can't be found anywhere under keyword search. Now I'm assured, hubpages has no warnings for me

And indeed my hub rating, after doing something with my hubs.It may seem like stating the obvious, but I went through all of hubs and put the absolute maximum number of tags that I could before it said "you have...

I'm pretty new at this, so I can really only gauge my hubs' performance against one another!This one is one of my earliest hubs, yet it has fewer views than ones that I've published just a few days...

I seem to have an awful lot of tags for my hubs- most of them are phrases that I "intuitively" tagged my hubs with ( I'll find out how "right" I was in the 30 day challenge I guess)It is usually...

I know that the choice of keywords is important. But can you have too many keywords? What is wrong with using every word you can think of?

The tags you put in when creating an article... are those HTML META Tags? Google stopped paying attention to those in like 1999, and I don't think any important search engine uses them -at all-Is there any use in...

Who hasn't quite got a grasp on it yet?Be honest, and mention it in this thread, and I'll look through some hubs and choose one from a few different hubbers and I and 2 other specifically selected hubbers will look,...
