    Is there any benefit in putting words in the tag column?

    If yes, Should I put words or phrase in that column?

    It would be appreciated if you could help me.

    Thanks

    Put in words and phrases that 1) is related to the content of your hub and 2) are words and phrases that real people are searching for.

    I've started putting a few tags on my hubs - no more than five or six - but I've noticed that it does help.  At first, I couldn't figure out why, but when I ran a backlink checker on my hubs then the checker showed that I had more backlinks than I actually do.  A lot of those backlinks come from the tag pages - where ever those are.

    Besides that, I've also noticed that there have been a couple other sites that pick up on the tags, and then index everything that's on those pages. 

    I don't know if that's the reason they are there or not, but hell, anything that helps is good - right? big_smile

    The tags also help the HubPages.com search.

    And also turning up in the Related Hubs column on other peoples hubs.

    I thought the tags were only used inside of HubPages for searching?  Keywords are what are searched on outside of HP.  Do I have this correct?
