Instead they are grabbing text from the body of the article, which is fine I guess as long as it is relevant to the search. However, sometimes it isn't relevant at all, and that...

I have added a table of contents to one of my hubs. The hub has a list of famous people from Oklahoma. To divide it up better and make it easier for people to read, I added links to each capsule. The question is, has anyone tried this and do you think that it would have a negative...
