Does the category that you list your hub under, a form of tagging? I.e. if I had a hub categorised as 'entertainment', would 'entertainment' need to be repeated in the tags section?
Would 'entertainment', therefore, be part of a search criteria outside of hubpages if it appeared in the category section?
Much appreciated x
If it's any help. I always put the main category down as one of my tags. This way, it's picked up by any sort of search of that topic. Then I'll use a couple off subject, but related tags, to pull other assorted readers.(i.e.; Sexy is a tag I use for my picture hubs- Yet, the category is celebrity.)
So, I'll have celebrity or celebrities as one tag, and sexy as another.
Hoped I helped.
It is not a form of tagging, but external traffic can easily be drawn into looking at 'topics' and finding pages that way. In that respect, it is beneficial for relevant traffic to find your page.... more traffic, and more chance of an adsense click or two.
The mentor speaks! Thanks babes. This might just be basic stuff to many, but FAQ doesn't really touch on these finer details.

As far as I am concerned it isnt... categorizing your hubs is actually organizing it in a manner you will save time and effort... I'll stand corrected I'm not very familiar with this stuff though...
