I'm a new hubber here. There are many things that are strange to me. When creating a new hub, more tags, more scores for this hub? What's the role of tag? Thank you in advance!!!
The tags are your key words used in your article. These words or phrases are typed into search engines by potential visitors. I think it is better not to use to many, just ones which best describe your hub.
I am no expert but in my opinion, the tags have 2 purposes one to let allow your hub to be linked and categorized with hubs on similar topics and 2 to create rss feeds for those topics.
Thank you very much! The tags are as much important as keywords.
Your tags should be your keywords. As far as I know hubpages will only show the first 15 tags.
I'd recommend reading darkside's hub on tags:
I suggest reading up on LSI. Peter Hoggans hub on that is a goid place to start. Tags and keywords will become completely irrelevant soon. I suspect backlinking will be also, though of course it always has value to introduce content to readers.
The world is changing and frankly it can't change soon enough for me.

What's the difference between keywords and tags?This is a question only a newbie to computers would ask, I'm sure, but I bought my very first computer a little over a year ago and hope you could write a hub-or an email-about this. I've looked at some answers given by other hubbers and am...

I've been on HubPages for over a year now. I have written 253 hubs (I deleted some) and just recently passed the 100,000 views mark. I think I should have more views by now considering the number of hubs and the amount of time I spend here. I know it is more about quality than quantity,...

Just a small question when writing a hub. Do you use mixture of specific and broad keywords or just specific keywords?Thanks in advance!

I thought I knew the answer to this question. But something interesting happened in the last week which I found it hard to explain. I'd be interested to hear opinions.I have a hub which is nine months old and had just reached 250-300 hits per day.I was experimenting to see how many tags I could use...
