So far I've written 3 hubs and I just can't figure out the tags capsule. On all 3 hubs the suggest tag remains along with the suggested tags. I don't want to use all the suggested tags. How do I get rid of the add tag/suggested tags?? yep I'm a computer illiterate, but I'm learning. Thank you for any help I can get out there. Jo Anna
Technically, tags are not really a capsule. They are always there. You can add and delete tags simply by opening a hub while logged into your account; meaning you do not have to be in editing mode to edit your tags. To see how your tags appear to the visitor, you can view your hub while logged out.
I don't believe there is a way to get rid of the suggested tags. Usually it's best to ignore them because they are based on your text, meaning they can be too general or unrelated. Don't worry, no one can see the suggestions except you.
Thanks...I wasn't aware that no one else could see what I was seeing.LOL Thanks again
Be a little more charitable, Charity! I probably use 2% of them. Or at least 1%. Maybe.
Even you could lighten up and go to 3 percent.
3%? I dunno, WE - might get slammed for irrelevant tags.
Seriously, I always seem to have trouble coming up with good tags, but just don't find much in the suggestions either. They need much better suggestions to make it a really useful tool.
Sure, I see what you mean. I am not much of a "tagger" myself, so I must admit (to the detriment of the spirit of this thread), that I regularly find useful suggestions.
Good for you. I wonder if I'm just not willing enough to cast a wider net; to accept and use tags a little further removed from the actual subject. Tags don't have to be just your key words, but that's what I want to use. Searchers that would find a hub useful don't always (sometimes I think never!) use the terms I would use.
I don't do the research or give it much thought; sometimes suggestions make up for that. I can see why the feature may not be very useful for those that put some more effort into it.

My Hub, Anatomy of a Miracle has the message, "WARNING: This hub has a large number of tags."Come on, guys and gals. You asked for us to use "Suggested Links" to improve our Hub Karma, and now you're talking about dinging us for doing this?I checked over my links and as far as I...

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?
