I think I must be doing something wrong because my tags appear with a red and white x next to them can anyone clarify please?
Toby, I used to wonder the same thing. when you are signed in, you will see those x's next to your tags in case you want to edit them, but when we look at your hubs, we don't see them! If you look at one of your hubs when you're signed out, you will see what everyone else sees! I used to have the same question.
welcome! and your dog is really cute.
Toby - without wanting to sound mean ... I think you need to start reading up on basic SEO and how to write online content. The site is stuffed full of great 'how to' info and you'd stand youself in good stead if you backed away from writing and started to learn the why's and wherefore's first.
The 'x' you talk of is normal - if you click on it all that will happen is the tag you've added will vanish from sight. It's a lttle 'button', that allows you to remove a tag you don't want/like.
I'd say your best to start reading the FAQ's which you'll find via this link - click on it ... http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/4668
From that point, start searching through the site ... hubs, things that the site team have created themselves and so on.
You can teach yourself how to write online and there's lots of hubbers that have written easy to understand hubs - relache, Darkside, Mark Knowles, Sunforged, Lissie and such.
Good luck and welcome to Hubpages
I dont mind if your mean you have to learn the hard way and now thanks to you I have it sorted cheers
Good to know you've conquered your problem. I'm sure there'll be others - we all began like you, probably confused with how it all worked
We all need to go through our own process of learning, but you have to want to. This process is what will make you a good hubber. It takes time and frogdropping gave some really good advice.

I'm very new to hubpages and have only written a couple of hubs. I've been trying to learn as much as I can about seo and everything, but I came across an interesting dilemma. When I put the url to one of my hubs into a google search it was not on the first couple of pages. I searched for the exact...

I took the hubpage challenge and completed it. 30 hubs in less than 30 days (just). My hubs are doing okay with almost 300 views and averaging about 15 a day, but no recorded onward orders. I have google adsense and amazon accounts and all my hubs have ads highly positioned. But, despite all that,...

Ever since I started writing for Hubpages in the summer, I became addicted very quick. Now, I have not produced one hub in well over a month. I lost the drive the write articles for this site. And now when I try to go back and write, I just become discouraged by the tiny amount of money I have...
