Many of you may realize that I write for amusement on here. As such, I often play with tags as part of the joke. However, I can't get them to line up in the order I type them. How does HubPages calculate the sequence.
Example, Say I wanted to have my tags appear like this:
When I hit publish, what I end up with on the right side of my hubs is probably going to be:
or whatever... thus ruining my fun. So, how do I fix this?
When I look at my published hub, there are little red x's next to the tags. You can delete them and add them back in. They get added in at the bottom and it may take you awhile, but you can get them in the order you want. Now, to be honest, I haven't really paid attention if they permanently stay that way after I've done it.
Yeah, I already tried that. And they aren't alphabetical too, and yet, they seem to stay in the order that HubPages randomly sets them in once they get shuffled.
That may be of some use, knowing that. Have to go mess with it.
I concur with dingdong. They are arranged in order of "search" popularity. I believe the words we add fall under the same criteria once they have been added to the list. Sorry Shades.
I don't think it is about search popularity. The most used tag(within hubpages) will be on top - entertainment for an example.
Yes, I am too wondering about the "tag sort". And I can't see any correlation with the sorted keywords in the Google Keyword Tool (that I often use when choosing my tags). It would seem logical that tags that already exist should be on top... but for more specific / less popular tags, I can't figure out how it works.
I'd like to know, because I hesitate to delete tags in the upper part of the list, thinking that I might be missing something...

There has been a discussion thread about this, but I just wanted to alert other Hubbers to it.You will receive a warning email about some rule violations - but for some, your Hub will show a warning on the Hub itself, but you'll get no email. So you need to fix these issues up now, don't wait till...

Are other writers experiencing a low percentage of comments and tags from their readers?The hubscore and all of the other statistical information is derived somehow from how people interact with a hub. How long people spend on a hub is measured, the number of comments, the number of tags such...

You may have noticed there is no longer a tags section on the Create a Hub page, and that the option to add the RSS Capsule has been removed from the HubTool. On our blog, we have announced that we are retiring tags and the RSS Capsule due to decreased utility and use. You can find all the details...

Is it better to use a large amount of keywords for the search engines or a smaller amount?I have seen both. Some hubbers use as many keywords as they can put in there; others use about 10 strong keywords. Do you find one or the other is more beneficial?
