For summaries, do people take a part of the article and use it word for word? I was under the impression it should be different though could be similar to part of the article. Does this matter since it's metadata and only shows on the search page? One of my articles was just edited and they copied the summary and put it at the beginning of the article which seems odd to me but maybe I've been taking extra time creating a different summary when I just had to take it word for word from what I'd already written. Thanks and happy holidays!
Weird that they would do that, but they must have felt the summary was too good to leave out of the article. I always type a unique summary. I often wish I had the option to make the summary longer.

I have published two hubs, and both of them have lost points for not having summaries. I'm not against writing a summary, if I can do it without simply being redundant. Would you be willing to critique these and give concrete examples of what good summaries would look like?Another...
