I have recently seen some posts indicating that a person can get in real trouble with HP for excessive/irrelevant tags. Even when the only tags you used were the ones suggested by the suggestion tool. In as much as most search engines ignore them anyway, why take the risk? So I have declared this to be my tag killing spree day. I am plowing through my hubs as you read this.
Any thoughts, info, or advice?
About two years ago, I did a lot of work on my tags to make them both fewer in number and more relevant, and got more traffic and earnings as a result.
My hub on fine-tuning your hub experience has a whole capsule on "ditching the tags that are keeping you in the ditch."
Thank you relache.
I think part of the problem is that sometimes folks think that the suggested tags should ALL be added. I thought that I was supposed to add all the suggested tags when I first started publishing hubs.
7 hours. Between the tags and the summaries, I'm barely half-way done.
Finally! Got it done, both the tags and the summaries. Took 3 times longer than I thought it would.
I am still working on the summaries. lolololo! I am glad you completed it.
I rarely if ever used the suggested tags given by HubPages
Very interesting. So how do you know which tags to ditch? And what is a good 'average' number of tags to aim for?
I probably have too many!
