    There is a new summary box for hubs (underneath the title) - how are you using it?

    ...and are you adding summaries to all your historical hubs? I'm guessing this new box is for SEO purposes.

    Yes, it is highly recommended that you sum up what your hub is about in 2 to 3 sentences. If not you will see a symbol beside your hub in your stats.

    A concise yet catchy summary will help with search engine optimization. More importantly, it will help attract potential readers when you and others share your hubs. The summery is the blurb that will show up on Facebook, Google+ posts when a hub is shared.

      Thanks for your answer Jim! Do you share your hubs with friends on Facebook? I have been too much of a chicken to do it just yet.

      When I first began blogging I was reluctant to self-promote. So I started tagging my sharing posts on FB as Shameless Self Promotion. Now I share everything I write on FB, Google+, LinkedIn, etc with my HP referral tracker code in the links.

      Thanks Jim! Perhaps I will have more courage to do it once I produce some more material. Could I ask what an HP referral tracker code is?

      See http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/referral-program for a full explanation of the tracker code and how to use it.

    Yes a summary is important to be your search engine words and I notice this summary now is shorter so you may want to give it a good thought thinking of this.

      Yes good point - fewer words but higher impact:)

    Pardon me, where can i find the new summary box; for "start a new hub" or hubs that had been published? I can't find them....

      When you edit your hub there is now a new summary box added underneath the title - did you find it?
