Is it necessary to add summary in your article.
I don't mind to write summary but there are only 140-170 characters you can add which are very less.
I never seen any summary in other's articles.
Are they visible in articles or there are just tags.
Please explain, I am little confused about this.
Thanks & Regards,
If I were you, I would concentrate more on improving my English than on what happens with summaries. You clearly are a second language speaker who needs to take some courses in English before you try to participate in a site that is geared for native speakers of English. There are some writers here who also are second language speakers, but they have educated themselves enough to be able to produce good, correct and understandable hubs.
Hello Karan, the brief summaries only appear in search engines. But before or at the end of your article, you can add a summary capsule of the whole story.
Alternately, you can add a summary capsule after 3 text capsules to sum up impotant facts. This was so in the old hubpages before marven take over. I have tried putting sumaries of the whole story after the search summaries and at the end of my hub, my hub got published.
Thank you, and happy hubbing!
Summaries are only going to appear on the search engine but they can be very important. If you write a good summary and include "pictures", for example, when someone searches for "pictures of Pokemon strategies" your article is going to come up. (Only add these keywords if your article does contain the pictures, or videos, or whatever. If you add them without having those things in your article the person is just going to skim your article and bounce out of there. Google will eventually downgrade you.)
As TimeTraveller2 points out, one of the most important things you can do to assure the success of your hubs is to learn even more. Read English books all the time, write what you can, etc. Your hubs are only going to be successful if your English is great and your subject matter is both unique and evergreen. If you have excellent English but are writing about what already is out there you will not do well. If your English is poor it does not matter how special your article is. No one is going to continue reading it.
Be careful of where you take advice. If you use a cructch like grammerly or Google suggest your language is going to be stilted. It would be a better for you if you learned the rules and wrote naturally.
Your Pokemon article needs some editing but you are off to a great start. I hope you continue on something else right away. Good luck working on this!
I just learned something because I did not that summaries appear on Google. etc. I think that I need to modify some of mine.
Hello Karan, the summaries will appear along with the published articles.
Have a nice time on hubpages.

The character limit for our article summary is 300 characters, yet only a portion of those characters show up beside our article on our profile page. Does anyone know if it is advantageous --in terms of generating more views--to leave our article summary at 300 characters (and not worry about a...

I've just noticed little As in my hub list, indicating which ones do not have summaries. That is REALLY useful!Thank you HP Team!

Which is the most important for search engine searches: the Hub summary or the first paragraph of the Hub? I thought the summary was most important, but I notice that sometimes searches show the first sentences in the hub. Are both equally important?

Anyone noticed Hubs changes & limited summary characters permitted?Looks like Hub pages has made some more changes and now have reduced the amount of letters you can use in the summary of your hubs. is this good or bad?

Is this common? On the Google results page, just under the title of my hub, Goodle is using the first sentence of the hub instead of the summary. (Yes, the summary is there on the hub, I checked.) Are summaries just wishful thinking on my part? Is this just more of Google playing hard to get and...

Should hub summaries be exclusive from intros (first paragraph) to your hub? I've noticed that some hubbers use their summary as the intro to their hub. It certainly saves time. I usually write a separate summary and expand on it for my intro or opening paragraphs. Does it matter?
