Should I use all the tags that my website suggests that I use?
It's better to select the tags yourself. HubPages occasionally comes up with good tags but usually they're not good enough to use.
They are only suggestions. Use any that make sense but also add your own. Don't make them too general otherwise you wil get hits from people searching for unrelated things and that will crate a negative affect on your Hub Score. Why? Because as soon as they hot your page and see it is not what they want, they click away. Your score is a function of, among other things, how long people stay around and actually read your hub.

Is it possible to have too many tags?I use most of the suggestions given to me (by HubPages) when I write an article. Do tags really make a difference?
