Under key words, search term sources for both my hubs it says 'no search terms found for this category'. What does this mean and does it matter? I think I entered my tags correctly.
I found your hub "Planning For Retirement Or Ten Reasons to Continue Working" in the "latest" section of the Retirement Planning category.
The other hub is very recent, but should be indexed similarly.
As for tags, these may not coincide with categories. I do not think that you creating tags will automatically lead to creation of new HubPages categories.
I believe you're talking about the stats? That just means that you haven't gotten (enough) visitors from the search engines yet. Keywords are the phrases that people type into the search engines. If someone finds you through a search using a keyword, that will show up on your stats page. Your hubs are still new, so I suspect that any traffic you are seeing is from other hubbers who find you through HP--not through a search engine.
Since you are new-- the terms may not be showing up yet. (Search engines take awhile to find you.) So, no, I wouldn't worry too much about it.
--Someone else will have a better answer for you.--
I have only skimmed your hubs so far, but think you will do fine here.
Welcome to HubPages. You are likely to enjoy it.
Edit: See-- three answered before I could type mine.

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

I came across this piece of advice in the first part of the Learning Center:"Write to educate your readers on your topic: create content on subjects that you are an expert; don't create content for search engines, a link, or to sell a product. Hubs that are written for readers have a higher...

How much search engine traffic are you getting compared to hubpages traffic?I'm just curious. Most of my traffic comes from hubpages. I get a little from google but not too much. I was wondering what other people are experiencing and if you have any advice on how to get more google traffic?

First reason:Any article is handicapped by moderators if it doesn't please them. Your article won't appear in search engines purely because it is not featured.Second reason:You cannot publish your articles elsewhere! Your articles are not even visible in search engines and yet HubPages use...
