    Is summary (of your hubs) that much important?

    Very important. Otherwise Google and other search engines chose whatever it finds important to present as the summary of your article to appear when readers search specific topics. And this is but only one reason why a summary is essential.

      So how do I write a seo-rich summary?

      Thank you for the honor! If you write an 'article', you have to summarize the topic and your angle of incidence with the prescribed maximum words. The summary of fiction should, just like the title, trigger curiosity. A Poem- Just 'A poem about ????'

    Yes it is.  It is your attention grabber.  Try goggling one of your articles.  The summary is the first to appear and be read!  It is your first impression of the article!

    Well, if you have experience from back in the day, when you'd build your own websites using either HTML code, dynamic Javascript, or a simple site building tool, you'd know that such information would be included in what they call "meta tags."  This would include the title, description (summary), keywords, and other trivial tidbits you may want to add.
    By what I have seen over the years of my web experience (traffic stats, SEO hooey, etc.), meta tags are overrated (just make sure your Title is fitting!) and unless you write total garbage and/or start each article off with irrelevant crap, it isn't that important nowadays, at least not near as much as it used to be!
    I'm only going by experience from trying both ends of the spectrum over time...
