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...
