Why do all my hubs now say that they are missing a summary? How do you add a summary to hubs?
This is something new. I think it is a great thing. Before now, if someone Googled your subject the first couple sentences of your Hub would come up along with your link. Now, your summary will come up instead. Hey, I've got 236 summaries to write but I am glad to do it because I think my 2 or 3 sentence summaries will make more people click on my HubPages article, not less.
Go to "My Account" from the right hand top of the page and select "edit" on your Hub (one Hub at a time).
On the right hand side of the page you will see 3 boxes.
Go to the 3rd box that has "reorder, tags, settings, SUMMARY, and group".
Click on "SUMMARY" and then you can type a unique summary of what your article is about.
When you are done, be sure to click "Done Editing" at the top of the page.
Any Hub that has an "A" after it in your statistics/my account page, means that you need to add a summary. You will need to repeat these steps for each Hub that you have published.
I hope this helps!
The option to add "summary" was already there for a long time. It is only now that HubPages has added the "A" notification for missing summary. Summary acts as meta description - Google loves them.
I just realized this - - how naive of me! I forgot that Google like snippets of information to categorize how something will be listed. I will make / refine my summaries!
I hadn't noticed the summary before so have started to write them . I would like to know where my followers have gone ????
I just finished my 61 summaries, and the process allowed me to do some editing while I was at it. It does make sense to write a couple of blurbs if you want more exposure. Hope it works.

Yesterday, I edited 11 transferred lenses. Editing "box" in upper right hand corner of hub suggested I write a summary which I did. However, upon clicking "DONE EDITING", when you view the hub there...

Just a suggestion. The add → text which appears in the description field has appeared on my hub summaries, even though I have put text in. This involves me having to go back and edit all the hubs again. Is it possible...

When I go to "My Account" why is there a capital "A" after all of my Hubs? What does this mean?

On my account I noticed a "A" after all my hubs. What is that all about? I have never sean it before.

I'm wondering if there's any way the "summary" button can be made more obvious when editing a Hub. Once upon a time, the summary was calculated automatically but now, it's not. Having no summary...
