If a keyword is a word in our article that search engines can look for and advertisers can bid on, yes, we can use foreign keywords in our Hubpages articles, as long as they don't outnumber English words. But foreign tags are not allowed period. Not even one foreign tag is allowed.
My question is: if we can't use tags to help the search engine find our foreign keywords, will the search engine still be able to do it? There are lots of foreign words with very little competition and a very large number of global searches per month.
Tags create internal backlinks for those words but they aren't going to stop search engines ranking you for those words.
In fact I'm always adding new tags based on what the search engines are sending to my hubs. Simply click stats on your hub then click keywords.
Some of the longtail searches in particular can be quite funny, I've found!

I saw this somewhere but do not know where. I see hubs with a lot more than that.

What's the difference between tags and keywords?And how do I add keywords?
by Peter Messerschmidt 9 years ago
When we create a new hub, we get to input relevant tags for the topic at hand.Do these became part of the searchable content of the hub, or are they merely "internal," i.e. used by the hubpages search feature, and to create tag clouds?I ask, because when I did a "show source" on...
