A is for missing summary

    Hi, After each of my hubs is the letter A which at the bottom of the page says it stands for a "missing summary". What is that and how do I get it on each Hub so that it is no longer missing?  Thanks for any insight

      It's a short sentence or two that appears when your hub is featured on Hubpages (say, on a topic page), when your hub appears in your activity stream, and it's text that may even be displayed by search engines or Facebook likes or other links pointing to your hub.

      Write your summary by editing the hub, checking the sidebar, and clicking on the all-too-easy-to-miss "summary" link. wink

        Extraordinarily easy to miss. It's almost as if they want us all to feel like idiots.

      I have noticed that the "summary" is the meta description that Google displays in search as well, so be sure to write an appealing and attractive summary. Very important for views!

        Oh cool! Thanks! Now I can worry about how to make THAT sound appealing and attractive! Seriously, thanks for the info and I will keep it in mind.

    Go to your Hub in EDIT Mode.

    Look under the Capsules (to build your hub with) - on the right..

    Look closely and you will that a pointer will be pointing at the building options that you have.. mayby.. tags, ad settings, summary etc

    Click it to summary and read the message board above..

    It will tell you that in 300 words you can describe your hub as a SUMMARY... when you do and take it out of edit mode.. you will find that the "A" has now gone and you have a new promo script describing your hub!

    Very Easy... An Excellent Build by HP... smile


    You have some writing to do... good luck. smile

    I have a lot of summaries need filling in tongue only going a few at a time if I remember yikes :? it's annoying if you can't remember what the Hub is about and got to open it first lol

      So far I have only did one and ended up re-writing the whole Hub because no longer felt the same way as just one month ago when written! Thinking about whether to bother doing summary with each hub or just the one's that stay relevant season to season?! Pretty sure I'll be doing the latter to start with at least. Where is everyone getting the smiley's by the way?
