What does Letter "A" mean?

    What does Letter "A" mean?

    When I click on "my account", I have noticed there's an "A" letter next to all of my hubs. What does it mean?

    So many people are wondering...Go to my account and edit any of your hubs that has an A. Then go to the right of your hub in the gray rectangle there will be reorder, tags...and summary. CLick on it and put a small summary of your hub there! Hope this helps.

    You are missing a summary for the hub in question.

    The letter "A" on your My Account page is a sign that you are missing a summary on that particular Hub.  The summary is what shows up in Google results under your title when someone searches for your Hub.  It is a good idea to have a summary that is different than the text in your Hub, e.g., don't just take your first sentence and plug it in for your summary.  Your summary should be an accurate explanation of your Hub so a reader from Google would want to click on the link to visit your Hub.  While in edit mode, the summary tab can be found on the right hand side of your Hub next to reorder, tags, settings, and group.  It is a good idea to go through all of your Hubs that have the "A" and create an original summary.

    This "A" indicates that you are missing the summary on your hub. This summary is helpful for the visitors to click on your hub while searching with the search engine.

    You can add the summary by clicking the summary module found on the right side of your hub, on the same line with reorder.  Write one or two lines about your hub and click on the "done editing" on top. Com back and check your hub, and you won't find the "A" any more there.
