What is the ideal number of tags to have for a hub?
Is inclusion of too many tags viewed negatively by Google?
According to HubPages tutorials, the best hubs have 10 tags or more.
I personally rarely put more than 3-4.
Tags aren't visible to search engines and are based only for HP, so I add as many as I like depends on the hub and the keywords people tend to use.
lobobrandon, the learning center hub says that tags help the search engines to understand what the hub is about.
I add mostly 5 to 6 tags in my hubs..According to hubages 10 ..interesting ..I just got it over here .Thanks

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.
