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!

Is it better to use a large amount of keywords for the search engines or a smaller amount?I have seen both. Some hubbers use as many keywords as they can put in there; others use about 10 strong keywords. Do you find...
