    Somewhere in forum I read 20 to 30 tags would be acceptable, still it should be relevant to the content. Less content and more tags (or) tags irrelevant to the content results in such flagging/warning.

    The appropriate number of tags will also depend on the number of words in the Hub.

    If you have a Hub which consists of a bunch of pictures and maybe 100 words, then you could barely justify 10 tags, whereas a Hub of 2500 words could cover 50 different tag topics.

    A good rule of thumb is to look at the specifications for a Flagship Hub. The more like those specifications you make your Hub, the better it will be. They suggest 15 tags for 1500 words in those specifications.

    The hub in question had tags relating to movies and songs not actually mentioned anywhere in the hub itself.  Regarding numbers of tags, the longer and more full of content your hub is, the more tags are appropriate, but as always, you should only add tags that directly refer to the content of your hub.
