The more I read in the learning centre the more confusing re. keywords,summary, tags, and the Hub.
Could anyone please explain it as simple as possible; how many, where, and how should keywords be placed into the summary, tags, and the Hub? I think I have almost grabbed Googles KeyWord tool but how to know too many KeyWords are not used and the ones that are where and how should they be positioned, please use plain English and not Tech Jargon!
In my opinion, the relevant question is: Would someone finding the hub by using those keywords, tags etc. be satisfied with the information provided? Do not use keywords, tags etc. that are peripheral to what the hub is about. Use those that capture its essence.
I think everybody should just relax about keywords. Just write a good quality piece that explains what it is in the tittle, add a summary that is a true reflection of what it's about and put in some relevant tags. Just say what it is. Sure, add a few backlinks in apposite sites, but don't knock yourself out over it. In time, if it's any good, then the web will weave it's magic; a tweet here, a repost there.
Just sit back and enjoy the writting. It's why you're here.
Both nice answers thanks, that takes me to back links and another question!

I'd be interested to hear opinions.I have a hub which is nine months old and had just reached 250-300 hits per day.I was experimenting to see how many tags I could use...

Who hasn't quite got a grasp on it yet?Be honest, and mention it in this thread, and I'll look through some hubs and choose one from a few different hubbers and I and 2 other specifically selected hubbers will look, comment and make suggestions on what keywords to target and how best to tag the...

Upon clicking "Generate tags", I get this message:Can't find any keywords to suggest. Perhaps you haven't written enough text, or maybe you have already used all of our suggestions!I've written more than enough text and have manually added very few tags. I've never seen this before....

Is it good to change your keywords to the (ones listed under your stats that people used to find your article)or just use the keyword tool?I think sometimes the questions or phrases may be more meaningful, cause if someone just typed in bipolar, there would be tons, but if they type in famous...
