In compliance with hubpages instruction that I write uniquely worded
2-3 sentence SUMMARY for every one of my 156 hubs, I would like help
from fellow hubbers: 1) Would it be okay to write a 1-sentence summary? If not, why? 2) I have gathered an info- Write enough summary, too long will be discarded by search engines. On this point, how can we determine that a summary was
discarded by a search engine? 3) Is a hub summary okay and sound, if it will follow the capsule gauge, say 227 characters left. (There's a capsule gauge below inside the Summary Capsule). Thank you.
it doesn't have to be summary. It could just be a "teaser". The idea is this is what the search engine will display so it needs to grab the reader with that.
You could just write "Do you want to learn more about _____, which helps you by ______ and ______? And it's free? Find out more here!"
Stupid, but usually works.
I guess they have said 2-3 sentences for a good reason , and it does look better than just 1 sentence on sites like facebook so I am doing what is reccommended.It is a lot to do however I am sure that if it is done as suggested then it will be worth it.
I guess you could do 1 sentence but make sure it is enough to interest possible readers + get noticed by google

All of my 82 hubs are marked with this. Do I have to write a summary for all of them? I never heard of this. Isn't the first sentence available, or a few more lines if you set it that way? If I have to do this, how long do I have? I had more views that ever today, now I am really bummed again.

Should I have a Summary?I rarely ever really do a summary, mainly because I don't think about it. But when I have gone to do one, I find that it doesn't flow well to the Hub, and it just seems to make for an awkward introduction. However, as I was writing the first section to a hub, I noticed some...

Summary of hub. How should I write?Should I write just the keywords for example if my hub is about flowers; should I just key in: flowers, paper flowers, fabric flowers, how to grow flowers, etc or should I write a short sentence with the keywords? Can I repeat the same sentence that I had written...

Hello, hubpages! I'm new, and I've completed and published my first hub (though it still does not seem to be indexed on the site), that I've written in exploration of the Enlightenment philosopher Voltaire. I hope to continue learning and writing about this fascinating man and his...

Does writing a summary improve search engine traffic?I have written a sumary for many of my hubs, but the two best performing I never have. Is there any benefit in writing a summary?

Just wondering how many of you always write summaries for your hubs, or do you not bother with writing one? How important is it do you think? I think I would prefer to write my own summary but for some reason my mind has drawn a bit of a blank as to what to write, sounds like it should...
