Is my grade school teacher going through all my hubs? Am I getting A for effort? or is it a glitch!?!
It's because you're missing summaries. See the codes on your account page.
LOL, three forum topics on the same thing in 30 seconds... we are an observant little bunch. Means missing summary.
If you scroll to the bottom you will see those are hubs without summaries. I notice i have a few too.
Yikes ,Ive got 4 so far!
Thought I had 4 excellent hubs
So,boy its been a while , do we just write the summary as a paragraph in a new text capsule?
P.S The 'A' is difficult to see HP team.
I am sure some of those did have summaries at one time or another
I just saw that and am incredibly thankful to see it. Sometime awhile ago all the automatic summaries were wiped out, and I was left with "tons" of Hubs to write my own summaries on. (I'd only done that sometimes and on some Hubs before.) I got through about 40 of them one morning, but then I just got sick of it and figured I'd go back to it another time. Since then, I've pretty much forgotten which ones I'd gotten through (and now they've all shifted in their places on the list). So, great! I'm happy with that gray A. The only way I even knew that summaries had been wiped out was that Izzy mentioned it in the forums. (Who goes looking for summaries when they think they're all there already? )
It is a summary of your hub... It gets posted on Google and other search engines.
Having looked on Google today as I investigated the 'surge' in traffic - I noticed that while google will take a 'snapshot' summary it's not always the first paragraph of the Hub - I'd already decided to take a look at all of my hubs - this does make it a lot easier for me!
If you got to "edit" for your Hub there's the gray box off the right-hand side that shows things like tags, etc. Across the top of the one of the boxes, in blue, there's different things you can click. "summary" is one of them.
If you click that you'll see that your Hub either has a summary or doesn't. If it doesn't you need to write a little summary to any one who sees the Hub in a search know what the Hub is. The summary is the first thing people will see, so it should be be well written and easy to understand (within the space allowed for a brief summary).

Which is the most important for search engine searches: the Hub summary or the first paragraph of the Hub? I thought the summary was most important, but I notice that sometimes searches show the first sentences in...

I'm wondering if there's any way the "summary" button can be made more obvious when editing a Hub. Once upon a time, the summary was calculated automatically but now, it's not. Having no summary...

Does anyone have any definitive information on this as the SEO advice is rather mixed.Some say that googlebot looks for keywords in the first sentence. It also relates to the text displayed on the SERP. Of course there...

I keep posting hubs without writing the summaries. Bad summaries can set your hub back for weeks (or ever if you don't notice). They are almost as important as the title.Some kind of warning- like 'before you publish...

Does anyone have solid tips on the best way to optimize the summaries? Mine have all been automatically created (only because I didn't know there was the option to create one), and they look like they're...
