I just published a new hub and I instantly recieved a warning sign that my hub is in danger of being flagged because of too much tags.
I believe all my tags are related to my topic and I decided to ignore that message since it stated that I will only be flagged if found having an unrelated tag.
Please take a look at my hub
Its performing well in terms of page views compared to my 10 other hubs and I beleive because I have the right tags for my hub.
I would like to request your opinion on this. Would you flag my hub because of too much tags? What will happen if I continue to ignore the warning signs?
Thank you and good day to all
Lmao...I can see why, your tags overlap each other...I mean there's one on the left and one on the right..I never did that ever. Yes, your tags are very extensive because they aren't one word ones but it still looks like a paragraph itself lol!
I have 9-12 on a lot of my Hubs, and a few with 15+ (Single to double word)
More tags don't mean you will get more views, Tags do exactly what they say...they "tag". Tags aren't paragraphs, why not work some of them into your description for human eyes and only leave the main ones for the Hub?
PS: Over tagging hurts rankings on search engines.
It looks like you have close to 60 tags. I wouldn't tag it, 'cause that's not my job, but will share my own experience.
HP has never flagged any of my Hubs for having too many tags when the number of tags was thirty or below, but the few times when they DID flag 'em, I counted and found the number to be in the forties.
Most of my recent Hubs are going in with 15 to 18 tags, give or take, and that seems to work pretty well.

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.

Do you often flag content on HubPages?I see a few hubs everyday that are in English, but poorly written. I hate to flag a hub if someone is just trying to start on HP, but I don't like reading poorly written hubs! What are your thoughts?

What will make you want to flag a hub right away?

Are you the personality type who just can't wait to catch someone who is breaking a hub rule? Or, are you more likely to ignore the rule breaking? I think the answer to this question lies in the intent of the real breaker. But, I have noticed that some people are more inclined to enjoy catching a...

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.

In light of the Google algo change, it is now obvious and confirmed that hub-hopping is VERY important. I feel that if you publish here, you should hub hop when you can. As it should hopefully increase our revenue and hopefully take this hubpages back to the top, where it belongs.The problem is...
