I know we've talked about this before, but searching the forums did nothing for me. I have a bunch of questions about tagging our hubs.
Do adding more tags lower your hubscore? I usually just try to add everything I can think of, including misspellings, plural AND singular forms of words, and random phrases. Should I limit my tagging?
Should I include tag phrases that also appear in my hub, or is this just redundant? For example, if I have a hub about dog breeding (and I have several), and it says the phrase "dog breeding" in the hub several times, should I add that as a tag or not?
I'm just confused as to how much the tagging affects anything, or if it does. I appreciate any help, as usual.
This hub helped me with tagging. Seems to answer your questions. Best of luck, Helena!
That's perfect, Kenny. I knew someone would have a great resource like that. Thanks!!
If you have selected a key phrase that you have optimized with the plan to rank well in the search engines, be sure to include that phrase as a tag.
My pleasure, friends. It's a good idea to become a fan of 'hubpages' in its avatar as a hubber, also. Useful hubs there.
Thanks for the link. I've been just adding any word or phrases that relates to my hub. Now, I know a better way to go about it.
And there's a lot of hubs there about all the aspects of hubbing.

I posted my first Hub this morning. It got a score of 71 and was marked as featured. I figured OK, I got a C on my paper. Better luck next time. Now, I see it's still featured but the score has dropped to 62. Will it now become unfeatured? Why did the score...

Hi,I'm a brand new hubber. For my first hub, I picked an article, I wrote on my blog. I don't have any affiliate links or link to my blog. I'm not trying to promote my blog, I just thought that article might be an intresting read. I published about an hour ago, now it says...

Sorry if this is a frequent question, I couldn't find it. There is part of a rule I don't understand about referral. Here it is:"In addition to earning rewards by introducing new people to HubPages, you can receive a percentage of the total impressions just by sending visitors to Hubs - no...

If anyone can explain this, I would be grateful. I just published my 9th hub and almost all of my hubs start off with 50.My newest hub got a score of 52 just ten seconds after I published it. I was under the impression that everyone's hubs start out at 50, but I was obviously wrong.I know most...

I had a message today that I have been 'selected' for HubPro - does this mean that an editor will change my work without my consent? I am confused about what I have read here on the site.I like the idea of help to improve my work, but am concerned that as I do not have a copy of all my hubs, I will...
