What is the best punctuation to use in Hub titles, commas, dashes or nothing at all? I am a bit confused, what if any affect will using commas and dashes in the title have on search engine results.
Well to optimize search engine results use a space. However other hubbers may like semi-colons, dashes etc.
I have read that the use of semi-colens and dashes cause the spiders to skip over long tailed key words and phrases., is that true?
Generally, it will make no difference with your title. You can use proper punctuation, most of it is ignored.
With URL's, it's best to use a hyphen to separate words.

It is better to follow established internationally accepted formatting styles, rather than to use weird constructions.
Also follow the basic punctuation rules of the English language.

In the real time analytics section I happened to notice that a search for "glue for repairing felt lined shoes" had resulted in a visitor. There was no reasonable hub being looked at, however, and I have...
