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

However, as I was writing the first section to a hub, I noticed some...

Can someone please help me? I've seen some really sub quality hubs out here. I write well and yet my hubs are being unpublished and continuously picked on for sub quality. I'm offended. You're making it not fun to be a hubber. http://vivbounty.hubpages.com/hub/firew … -plus-help

Boy, now I'm really confused. Our hub summaries (just under the title) are supposed to be what shows up as a description in Google searches, right? So I just launched a new hub. It's reading a 94 hubscore right now and is not an Editor's Choice (yet). Here is what my summary says:"When it...
