    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,
    Karan Karjivkar

      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!

      Thanks Miebakagh57 once again.
      So, they don't appear on the published article, right?

    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!
