    Is their still an option to use keywords when writing Hubs anymore?? I'm so confused...

    So I just wrote my first new hub in a few months, and I have to say I was kind of confused when I couldn't find a place to put my keywords in for the search engines... Is that just a thing of the past now, or is there still the option to use keywords when writing hubs??

    I think you're referring to the tags that we used to assign to hubs. Now HubPages automates that process and chooses tags for us. You should still research keywords and use them in your titles and hubs. The search engines should be able to pick up on what you're writing about by the words you use in your writing.

    No, keywords option is history. Now, write your summary hub and include the keywords. Really helped a lot.

    You're confusing keywords with tags. Keywords are words you use WITHIN your Hub. Tags are words that you add to a separate section, which were once used by search engines to decide what your blog post was about.

    Tags were never used for that purpose on HubPages, in fact they were invisible to search engines even before they were discontinued.

    When you write a Hub, ask yourself what words people are likely to type into Google to find your Hub.  Those are your keywords.  Use them naturally in your text as you write your Hub.  That's it in a nutshell.
