    It used to be that you needed at least 2 tags for the hub to be published. I do not see Tags anywhere now. Does that means that the time we put into finding tags is now all wasted. Also what does Reorder mean.

    I just posted a hub and there was no place to put a tag on it.
    Now my hub is not featured.

    I am not happy about it

    Reorder allows you to move your capsules around. Double click on a capsule to make it smaller. You can move a small capsule onto a larger one to make them appear side by side.

    Tags have been removed from the Create a Hub page, and now HubPages adds them automatically.
    Here is a link from Simone Smith which explains it...


    I was worried about this at first, but I haven't seen any detrimental effect on any of my hubs. Hope that helps! :-)

      Thanks it says "On our blog, we have announced that we are retiring tags ." How do I get to the blog. It does not say that they will be adding them automatically.

        Here's a link to a blog post from Simone, about the RSS feeds and tags, I think this one explains about tags being added automatically!

          Thanks! "Tags used to be very important on HubPages, but due to abuse by spammers, we developed an automated system that develops tags for Hubs automatically (which will ultimately save you time and leave Hubbers less dumbfounded when trying to determine which tags are or are not appropriate)."
