Is there any limit of using tags in a hub? Would it have any effect on the rating or score for use of more tags? I am just curious to know!
Yes, it is possible to have too many tags, and to be penalized for it, but that shouldn't happen if you just use common sense. The number of tags should be proportional to the length of the content, and all tags should accurately reflect what's in the hub. Simple as that.
Thanks Maddie Ruud for the response! Is there any benchmark for that e.g. some percentage of the total words or something?
There's no hard-and-fast rule. For a short poem, half a dozen probably will suffice. For a hub with a lot of information, of 1000+ words, maybe as many as 30-40, depending on how much punch your hub packs.
I would say 10-20, even if it's a 2,000-word Hub. That's my preference.
12-20 for around 600 word hub. up to 40 for more than 1000 word hubs.

We just recently released a small update to the site. There are lots of little things, but the two changes that you'll probably notice are:1. Tag suggestions -- we now have the ability to analyze the text of your hub, and can suggest tags that may be appropriate. Look for this on your...
