    How do the tags work?

    How to the tags on hubs work? Do they affect search engine results, or is it just Hubpages that makes use of them? If it's just Hubpages, why? Our hubs are already organised by category after all.

    The tags are simiar to keywords. Yes they do play a part in ranking with the search engines.

    When you start a hub you choose the catergory it goes into. If someone searches on hubpages for your tags (aka keywords) your hub should pop up.

    Always, always maximize your tags. They help you tremendously both here on hubpages and the 'net.

    Good luck!

    Tags are invisible to Google so they have no bearing on search engine results.  They're used to help with internal HubPages navigation, like "related Hubs".

    They used to be visible to Google but that changed recently.
