How do "Keywords" or "tags" work. What is the importance? Thanks
Should keywords be taken from the name of the article or the content itself?
-or- are keywords the words that are most used when searching for an article on a subject? Thanks again.
Keywords or tags are very important because they help you to have a higher page rank in the Google Search Engine. This means that with a proper use of keywords you can have your hub or webpage even among the first ten listed by Google Search Engine when someone types in the keywords (you used) in the search box. The best way to use keywords is to put them in the title, at the beginning of the text once, twice or more in the body of the text (depends on the word count of the whole text) and once at the end. Simply said, these words help your hub to be found by other people doing (re)search on Google or elswhere.
Nevertheless, if there are many online articles on the same topic you used, Google will list those which provide the best info about this topic first and those that have the best links and backlinks to related topics!

And indeed my hub rating, after doing something with my hubs.It may seem like stating the obvious, but I went through all of hubs and put the absolute maximum number of tags that I could before it said "you have too many tags" or whatever it says. When it said that I had too many tags I...
