    Does updating tags help in any way to increase traffic or does google see only highlighted words within the text of the hub?

      My understanding is that google does not see tags, but does see all the hub.  Highlighting, bolding, italicizing, etc. accomplishes almost nothing.

    If you click on a tag, you'll be taken to a page that lists every hub on the site with that tag. Sometimes that can be thousands (for a general tag like "cars" for instance.)

    Google usually indexes the first page of results for tags, which is another backlink to your hub - IF you can get your hub on the first page. To do that, you should choose tags that are unique enough to have maybe 5-8 other hubs with the same tag, but not so unique that you're the only tag on HP.
