Anyone noticed Hubs changes & limited summary characters permitted?


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?

    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.

    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:)

    Guess it is going to make us all work harder to sum up the hub, i just think some will now just become a list of keywords that make little sense.
