    Is it me or have they vanished? I can't see them anywhere. That for a reason or a glitch? I was editing, noticed, checked others out and can't see them.

    I just noticed this and thought that I was cracking up. Hopefully they are doing away with them. I can't explain why I hope that.

    You would think that the hub staff would inform us of such a major change.

      It is probably a bug, personally I wouldn't want to be informed of every single glitch. The title 'tags' still exists, the tags are just not displayed.

      Neither would I want them to inform us if they were experimenting. I am 80% certain that it is a glitch.

      The other 20% of me hopes that the whole tag system is done away with, along with about 30 other page leaks. I would also give priority in the related hubs section to similar hubs written by the same author. In fact, I would rename it "more by this author".

      The facebook widget would go. The forum and questions crap would go. Comments boxes sitewide defined to show just 5 comments, with page numbers, for people to scroll through the comments.

    It must be a glitch because the contest starts soon and we have a tag to use for it.

    The tags "could be"- the only way to make adjustment now would be through edit mode.

    But, do keywords/tags distract readers?

    Not to mention- those who come to steal your work, don't just steal your work, but your keywords/tags to go with said work.

    Personally, if it could be set to where it's only viewable to the author if signed in, but on the outside of the hub and not available to the reader. It would probably work best.

    However, as I was thinking about that, I could see Hubpages doing it for protection of self. The Hubpages Ad Program forbids a hubber from constantly viewing their own hubs, to drive impressions and by placing the keywords/tags into strictly edit mode, then requires a hubber to enter the hub to change anything. The object would prevent hubbers from using the excuse that they were changing keywords/tags, physically making changes(with the intention of getting impressions) adding keywords/tags. I would think it would help Hubpages gauge it's traffic.

    Just my thoughts on it.

    I see tags on Hubs.

    It might have been a temporary glitch. tongue

    The tags are back on the hub I checked. When I checked earlier, they did disappear. Thank you Jason.
