    I am getting confused about choosing Keywords.  I may be making it more difficult than it needs to be. Regardless of which hub of mine I bring up, when I click on 'stats', I get a message that reads, 'no search terms found.'  Forgive me if this is an elementary or juvinile question but I would really like to be able to wrap my brain around Keywords on order to give myself a fair chance to compete in getting my hubs recognised.
    Thank you in advance for any and all helpful tips.

      Key words, or tags, link your hub with other hubs of the same nature.  Just manually type in a few key words that help to identify the major content of your hubs where it says to add at least 2 tags.  You can also select from the list provided as well.

      Remember, the more tags you insert, the more circulation you will get.

    Here are some other forum discussions about keywords and such:
    (This refers specifically to the Title tuner, but what it says should also answer your question about Search Terms under Stats.)

    Really good help about keywords and how to use them:

    And, actually, tags are not quite the same as keywords.  Tags affect how the HP RSS feed will pick up your Hub; tags are not necessarily included within the body of the Hub, although they could be.

    Welcome to HP, ShyeAnne and Daffy Duck!
