Looks like Hub pages has made some more changes and now have reduced the amount of letters you can use in the summary of your hubs. is this good or bad?
sort by best latest
Well, 2 to 4 paragraph summaries are great for long materials, like books. But a simple 2 to 4 sentences should be enough for shorter pieces like Hubs, blogs, and articles.
hey, glad you find it helpful, guess it will stop those that almost rewrire their hubs
thanks paul, good suggestions, i guess we just need to stop all the flowery talk and get on with being more precise. i'm sure HP will keep throwing changes at us all. appreciate your comments
Short and sweet seems to be the key. More thinking needed when writing. It's justa pain when you have a good summary and then run out of letters before you have just round it up.
I thought everyone could see it on the profile page of the hubber? Also you have a better shot of filling it up with many keywords if it's longer I would think... does a search engine only pick up a select many? I'm all curious now how this works:)
readers are able to see the summary since it is what hub pages uses when featuring your hub. So i guess limiting hubbers on the summary will affect us all in some way
The summary is also used to describe the hub on topic pages.
I've seen summaries (or partial summaries) as part of the description of the entry when searching for information. I sometimes find this is the deciding factor in deciding whether to read the article.
