I have noticed a lot of writers who do not write a short summary on each hub, but just allow the system to pull from the first words of that particular hub. On the statistics page, if you do not write a summary, it will have it marked as missing a summary. Which do you prefer and why?
sort by best latest
Thanks so much for the great answer.
Thanks so much for the answer. Yes, I think writing a summary is what we should do, but just wondered as I stated above.
I appreciate you answering the question. I did not know all of this, but I have always written a very brief one-line summary.
My experience tells me you chose a best answer which isn't based on truth. Summaries are not used by search engines as SEO. they simply tell people what to expect in the article or hub.
Thanks so much, talfonso, yes, I am not up to speed on the SEO yet. Still working on that issue.
Thanks so much, Pollyannalana. That is what I have thought, as it is instructed to do so, but I have seen so many that just let it go. Appreciate you.
Melbelle, thanks so much for answering the question which is obvious the correct answer, as everyone has stated here. I have always written a summary, and thanks about adding the great point about length.
