    Adding keywords/tags to hubs?

    It has been a while since I posted a hub, but want to start making them again. I just posted a new hub and I noticed right away they changed some things. I was not asked to enter keywords/tags anywhere like I used to be. I was wondering if they removed that feature, or if I am overlooking it somewhere? Thanks.

    Yes, they were removed around December of last year. Happy hubbing.

      Oh, it's been last fall since I've posted anything new. I wonder why they removed them, seems like that would help people generate more traffic? I stopped posting last year after the Google Panda updates and the traffic slowed to a crawl.

    I noticed that they discontinued using tags as well. But there is hope, and one of them is long-tail keywords in titles. When writing about using rhinestones on phone cases, I put descriptive words before the one word (2 or 3 more) because just using "rhinestones" is going to set me up for keyword stuffing, and I don't want that. I'd use the phrase "glass plastic flatback rhinestones" in my title and once in the article. This is one of the Hubs that will increase traffic and revenue even if th tags feature is gone. Hope this helps.

      Thanks, I will have to try and remember that and put it to use. Somehow even without posting for many months over half of my articles are "featured' and I didn't even know it.

    Just type your article like you normally would with your keywords placed where you want them to be. The Panda crawler (googlebot) will pick them up automatically and file the article accordingly. It is important to focus on keywords that are supported by the text of your document, and that the document is written with quality in mind. Pay very close attention to what the reader will experience, because that is a very large part of what the quality rater in Panda looks for in pages it promotes. Hope this helps.

      Oh, so I suppose that would go for other things on the web as well. Kind of making tags, well obsolete now? That would be cool, if Google was the only search engine that mattered anyway. Do other search engines have that feature as well?

      I am not sure about how bing works, etc, but, Panda is about sorting things into categories and then sorting the things that make up the categories from best to worst. It is how your keyword works in your text that makes it a keyword.
