Is there a way to write a description for you hub?

    On many writing sites, they give you the option to write a description of your site that will show up in the Google search link, or other links that you post. I have not seen that with Hubpages, and I have to put a description of the link every time I post it somewhere, like in the link capsule in a hub.

    Any Help?

    Thanks!

      The summary box gives your hub a meta tag description. If you need a description for backlinking elsewhere, write a new unique summary each time. Google hates duplicate content unless you are a newsfeed, apparently.

    You'll locate the summary box, under settings, while in edit mode.

    Thank you so much! I am going to go through all of my hubs tonight and add a summary. I hope it helps me with views smile

      Trust me, it will, remember to use your main keywords in the summary box too.

      It's an option. Google and other search engines, take about 100-150 words from your first couple of paragraphs.

      Maybe you could alter your first couple of paragraphs and ensure that they are keyword rich. smile

        That doesn't necessarily work ... google seems to include the 'tweet this' kind of info . much better to use the summary
