    I mean, I can't seem to find them anymore. Has HP updated so that your Hubs only appear in relevant searches dealing with the content of your articles? This is cool but also a bit bad. I suppose it also helps remove 'keyword' abusers, am I right?

    Yes, you are correct. They announced the change a few weeks ago.

    Yes, I had seen a number of references to keyword tags in hubs and forums, but noticed myself that they no longer existed. I was hoping to utilize them myself for better SEO, however the newer search engines use algorithms to categorize results more by content than keywords these days... so removing keyword tags makes sense.
