I have recently seen some posts indicating that a person can get in real trouble with HP for excessive/irrelevant tags. Even when the only tags you used were the ones suggested by the suggestion tool. In as much as most search engines ignore them anyway, why take the risk? So I have declared this to be my tag killing spree day. I am plowing through my hubs as you read this.
Any thoughts, info, or advice?
About two years ago, I did a lot of work on my tags to make them both fewer in number and more relevant, and got more traffic and earnings as a result.
My hub on fine-tuning your hub experience has a whole capsule on "ditching the tags that are keeping you in the ditch."
Thank you relache.
I think part of the problem is that sometimes folks think that the suggested tags should ALL be added. I thought that I was supposed to add all the suggested tags when I first started publishing hubs.
7 hours. Between the tags and the summaries, I'm barely half-way done.
Finally! Got it done, both the tags and the summaries. Took 3 times longer than I thought it would.
I am still working on the summaries. lolololo! I am glad you completed it.
I rarely if ever used the suggested tags given by HubPages
Very interesting. So how do you know which tags to ditch? And what is a good 'average' number of tags to aim for?
I probably have too many!

I write one hub today. But I see that the tag toolbar is not working. I tried in Windows 7, Firefox and Google Chrome. Is it a problem of my computer or hubpages? Would you please mention a solution for this.ThanksrancidTaste

Hi guys, I think i've found a neat little trick to generate very large numbers of backlinks in a very short space of time. I've searched thoroughly through all of the hubs and forums here, and it's something I don't think anyone has hit on yet. There's no references to it. But it depends on finding...

Having looked at some of the hubs I have which are gaining a bit of traffic at present I had a look at what the 'related hubs' were on the right hand side of the pageIs there any way we as a hubber can have an influence into this?One of my best traffic hubs from outside of hubpages has two 'related...

Hi Guys,The importance of tags is of high priority. Many of you may not realise that there is a bug in the system and lots of tags are broken. Many of my tags are and here is an example of a broken hub (broken tags = broken hub = worthless SERPS = No Traffic = No Clicks on...
