What is the appropriate amount of "tags" for a hub?
AS I search for an answer to this question I find everything from 3-5 tags as well as up to 15 which I feel could be looked at as spam.
Depending on the article I use around 10. Though for some articles there are only a couple tags you can use that are relevant. But I use a lot more tags in my book list hubs because I like to list all the author names as a tag.
I'm in the second group of people participating the the Apprenticeship Program and we have been told that 10 tags is about the most you want to use.
I don't see how the principle of more the better doesnt apply here but that is probably more my short-sightedness more than anything, am i missing something? doesnt more tags mean increased reach?
Hubpages recommends 10. You don't want to overdo it. If a visitor finds your hub via a tag, then finds it is not the desired material, that reader will progress to the next article... and Google will record a short visit.
That short visit makes the Googlebot think you're article is low quality or uninteresting.
I try to use no more than 6 tags. I like the 3 - 5 number because I base my tags on the keyword research I've done. Typically, I'll have a main keyword and a couple of secondary keywords, and if I've done a good job targeting the right keywords, then this number should be sufficient. Before I knew anything about keyword research, I would load my hubs with tags, thinking, more is better. But now, I've started going through them and eliminating tags that really aren't necessary.
