There are lots of questions and questionable hearsay-type answers in the forums concerning hub tags and exactly what they are used for. I would love to see some hard and fast answers from HP on this subject. Also, how many tags are too many or not enough, whether or not they are seen by search engines, multiple-word tags vs. one-word tags, whether or not tags are used to choose hubs in the "Discover More Hubs" section, etc.
SmartAndFun, thanks for the suggestion.
We're in the process of removing tags from the site. They're not really used widely on the web any more. You may have noticed that when we released the new Hub design in early June, we stopped showing them on the Hubs. And soon, they will be removed from the Hub Creation process as well.
Well, I for one won't cry crocodile tears over their demise. I've always had trouble finding enough tags that were truly germane to the subject.
Is this just for new hubs, or will tags disappear completely from all of our work that now appears online?
Hmm, I think this means that I need to review my hubs and make sure that my tags are used in my hubs as keywords. I know I should have been doing that anyway, but I'm sure that especially my earlier hubs are missing this.

How about a very detailed guide on how people should stop wasting their time and how to write hubs that won't get ZZZ? This would need to include ways to guarantee traffic, 'no no' topics, quality aspects minimum capsule and variety counts, and other things that are used to identify which hubs get...

I've only created a few hubs so far, but the process was made easier by the "Need Some Goals" module that appeared in the upper right. It was a great visual checklist and motivated me to get the hubs up to par. Today, I went to create a new hub and... no goals toolbar. Nothing, nada,...

Tonight I was hoping to find information in the Learning Center specific to tags. It would be great if I could search just the Learning Center instead of browsing through the 1000 hubs that are coming up in the general search. This function would help lots of newbies and olides alike who have...
