How important are tags to your hubs?
Is the only way to be found through a hub pages search with the use of tags?
Tags are the same things as Keywords. Keyword optimization is king in SEO Tactics. Here's an article I wrote about the value of a tag.
Hopefully,this will help you some.
Tags are really important for a couple of reasons:
1. they tell the search engines what your page is about
2. they create internal links to your pages
This is a very good hub on using tags effectively that every hubber should read; http://hubpages.com/hub/Hubpages-Traffic-Use-of-Tags
I don't know the ins and outs of how hubpages internal search works, but I think several factors are used such as words in text, words in title, words in summary etc. and not just tags.
Tags can be important for people using a search engine to find Internet material on topics. They alert the search engines that you have relevant material on the topic described by the tag.
