Why is it that hubpages suggests tags and then tells you after you've implemented their suggestions that you have too many?
There merely a suggestion and not all of them will produce good ones. I like the tool, but do not use 100% of them. I use the ones it found were good and disregard the others.
Sometimes it may pick up random words like "going the" or something that is not relevant to the main idea or topic.
Don't take those tag suggestions seriously... some of the are ridiculous. It would be good to keep appropriate tags well within the 15 -20 limit, remove all the useless tags by clicking on the X and you will be fine. Hope this helps..
The tag suggestions are there to give writers some ideas if they aren't sure how to tag their hubs. If you've already selected some, no worries. Always feel free to add one or two of the suggested tags to your existing collection, but if you add to many, they lose their relevance.
I would go easy on the Tags anyway as they tend to dilute your hub relevance by spreading it among the many tag pages. Too many non relevant Tags will have a negative effect on your hub's popularity.
I've been going back an removing tags from my older hubs, leaving no more than 15 of the most relevant and I have seen some increase in both traffic and hubscore.

I was told by one hubber to use about 15. How many does every else use?

Ok, I did look at the FAQ's before coming here, and I found a hub on tags and read it. But it seemed to contradict another article I read. I also read through the comments and noticed that another hubber posted my question 4 months ago and has yet to get a reply so I am going to ask...

What is the appropriate amount of "tags" for a hub?AS I search for an answer to this question I find everything from 3-5 tags as well as up to 15 which I feel could be looked at as spam.

Can adding all suggested tags be a bad thing?A lot of suggested tags I get can be good, but are often missing a word in between for some reason. The words suggested are in the context so it is relevant, but can adding to many be harmful,good, or neither?
