What is the significance of "tags," anyway?

Now that Hubpages has disabled tags as a user accessible feature-- tags are now assigned to hubs automatically, based on content-- I find myself wondering how that will affect traffic. Mostly, though, I am interested in WHERE tags are important? Are tags just a "sort mechanism" internal to HP, or do they end up being part of Google's ranking/search algorithms? I know the issue was "tag spamming," but now I am concerned that I will lose traffic from no longer having "relevant" tags that are not necessarily IN the text of my hubs.... Any thoughts?


sort by best latest
