Exessive tags? Related questions?

    If I add tags like "bakugan, bakugans, bakugan toys, bakugan toy, bakugan balls,bakugan ball, bakugan review....", it can go on and on, all about a bakugan. Any idea if this would would have impact on your keyword density of the article therefore get penalized by SE? Or is it just tags that SE is smart to identify?

    btw, I also noticed "related questions" on the right side, I think most of time they may not be related at all. Doesn't it have negative effect? Why non-related questions end up showing in my articles?

      Less tags means chances of results come in top 10

      more tags means less tarrif

        Tarrif? You mean traffic?

        As for the rest of your post, it sounds peculiar to me.

          My sentiment exactly. Sounds like... suspicious, not only that, it didn't help in any ways

        Why would more mean less?

    The title for this topic may be misleading. I'm asking whether too many repeated keyword in tags would cause problems. Hope for a bright answer. Thanks

    Hi Snakebaby - I don't *think* it should influence keyword density.

    I do know that each tag creates a backlink to your article and since your anchor text will be your keyword, that's good for your article.

      Thanks a lot, Wrylilt, it sounds reasonable. Sometimes a massive tags are really needed,  sometimes there are only handful keywords available for the content. I do hope you are right. I'll keep on watching smile

    Hey Snake,

    If it matters, I've read posts by Hubpages Staff that said keywords should be optimized.

    You can use up 20 keywords(max) for articles up to 1500 words.

    For articles over 1500 words, you can use up to 40 keywords/tags.

    Should you go over that or have 40 on a hub less than 1500 words, then you will be flagged for keywords/tags. You'll be forced to reduce the number.

    I hope that helps give you a guideline. wink big_smile

    On your related questions- if your tags are not related to your content, and you enter them. Then you can possibly be flagged for deceptive tagging.

    Just an added thought. smile

      Thank u very much, Cagsil, that really helped! It reminded me that I was warned couple of times when adding the tags, so I reduced them till no more warning presents. But today I removed some of the tags for few of my hubs in the new worry that it might hurt, since my newer hubs can't be found anywhere under keyword search. Now I'm assured, hubpages has no warnings for me big_smile
