    Youre welcome to tell me if i post too much here, but i was wondering why google ignores tags. Someone said you shouldnt use tags that you are not using in your hub, which makes me think tags does matter somehow. Also, i am sure i put a keyword in google once and it took me to that the exact keyword i tagged my blog with. And i didnt use the keyword in my text! Thanks.

    Not using tags that isn't in your hub doesn't mean to say you can't use related words, it's more about using completed unrelated words in the hope they it will bring in more traffic.

    So don't throw in the tag SEX when the hub got nothing to do with sex.

    The other problem is though that people are using tags that are in their hub, but it makes little sense. You should target words that people will use to try and find your hub in a search. Keywords that are not only meaningful, but do have some kind of search volume.

    I just went and checked a hub of a random hubber and they had the word 'simply' as a tag. And 'importance'. Neither of which will help.

      So how do you explain the keyword i entered in google which took me directly to a tag in my blog? Surely that must mean that google does look at tags.

        Is this a wordpress blog?

        That is easily possible, many search engines can pick up tag search pages in wordpress, especially if you spend some time configuring them that way.

        Don't let a one off determine or shape your theories on how search engines work.

        What was the keyword?

          I dont remember. Something like ' agassi sampras hit for haiti'. Something specific.

            Because it's specific don't mean it results in traffic.

            If people aren't searching for it then there's no competition.

            Just ask the Unimpressed Turtle.

                I know!

                But it will be later rather than sooner.

                I've only just finished the first draft of the screenplay.

                While it's still only early in development, I'm hoping that they'll cast Simon Cowell as the voice of Unimpressed Turtle.
