Does updating tags help in any way to increase traffic or does google see only highlighted words within the text of the hub?
If you click on a tag, you'll be taken to a page that lists every hub on the site with that tag. Sometimes that can be thousands (for a general tag like "cars" for instance.)
Google usually indexes the first page of results for tags, which is another backlink to your hub - IF you can get your hub on the first page. To do that, you should choose tags that are unique enough to have maybe 5-8 other hubs with the same tag, but not so unique that you're the only tag on HP.

Over the last few days, I took Writer Fox's suggestion and began using Alt Tags on some of my photos. (I would have done this sooner, but I focused my efforts elsewhere when there were technical difficulties.) Very quickly, after adding Alt tags to my hub with the most traffic, which had gotten...

The tags you put in when creating an article... are those HTML META Tags? Google stopped paying attention to those in like 1999, and I don't think any important search engine uses them -at all-Is there any use in filling them in?
