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.
