How Many Tags do you typically use?
I tend to add 10-15 tags to each hub. I was wondering if I should use more?
I tend to use 2-5 tags. There will be occasions when I'll use about 7-8, but that's pretty much my cut off limit. That may be why Google doesn't love me as much as some others.
I use very few and only the most important keywords. Using too many can be considered spammy and it's a fine line. I typically use no more than 5 or so for shorter hubs and for more detailed hubs with more information I may go as high as 10 at the absolute highest end.
I was curious as to how the search engine works. So, if I had a hub about building a birdhouse, I'd use, "Birdhouse, How to Build a Birdhouse, Building a birdhouse" etc. I use multiple variations of how to phrase it, hoping I'm not doing it wrong.
that's how you do it - you might also include a tag or two for like "tutorial" or "DIY project" things like that

Is there any limit of using tags in a hub? Would it have any effect on the rating or score for use of more tags? I am just curious to know!

The rules for the 'you think you can write' contest state that the tag 'WritingContest' must be included. Does this mean included at or near the title - or does it mean it has to be placed where the normal tags are placed, where it says 'please add at least 2 tags?'

I was told by one hubber to use about 15. How many does every else use?
