I was going to say that I was going to hump someone's leg but I thought that would be inappropriate.
Anyway we now have a "missing summary" symbol on our hubs. Thank you HP team, you have made my life easier as I've been half-heartedly trying to find hubs without summaries and add them.
Hey - I want to punch someone - I have at least 400 hubs without summaries! Noooooooooooooo!
LOL, then HP is doing you a favor.. Think how much more SEO those hubs will be with a keyword rich summary! *ducks and covers*
Google and other search engines actually pull keywords from your body text more than your summary. They want the description to be a good fit for whatever the person searches so a different description will be visible depending on the search term.
That being said, I'll probably slowly add in summaries just so I stop seeing the A's haha
I'm not sure why you went with the A though HubPages, because now some people are going to think they got a good grade on all those hubs.
You can thank Edward (ezhang) for this feature.
It's not a critical thing to do, but can help if you write something genuinely descriptive and unique.
Oh gah. I didn't need another area of SEO. I don't study it. I am too easily distracted to concentrate on all those SEO training sites. Probably why I have less than $2 here.

I bet hubpages has millions of pages with meta descriptions that clearly violate search engine guidelines. Bing won't even index a...

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

The character limit for our article summary is 300 characters, yet only a portion of those characters show up beside our article on our profile page. Does anyone know if it is advantageous --in terms of generating more views--to leave our article summary at 300 characters (and not worry about a...

Yesterday I invited a friend to try the hubpages. She declined stating that most of the staff are narcissistic head hunters who have a degree in English, play head games with the users they don't like, are unfair in carrying out their hub rules and often help the evil doers on the site if it means...

Please do something to the filters so that Hub summaries as graphically-cluttered as the below can be found. This can't be helping.

Which is the most important for search engine searches: the Hub summary or the first paragraph of the Hub? I thought the summary was most important, but I notice that sometimes searches show the first sentences in the hub. Are both equally important?
