    The questions in the title, however I shall elaborate a little. What are peoples findings with regards to writing summaries, do they increase traffic? or do you use them as another area to use for your keywords?

    Are there any other advantages to having a summary and how important in you humble or not so humble opinions are they?

    Thanks for all and any responses smile

      According to Market Samurai, summaries are the biz.

      Keywords in url, title, summary and something else which escapes me at the moment (normal for me these days!) and your hub has a better chance of cracking whatever nut you wanted it to crack.

      If it's any help, adding keyword rich summaries to hubs that were struggling a year ago, put them straight to page 1.

        Thank you for this, we'll see how it goes and i can compare traffic, a rise in some of my lesser performing hubs would be a welcome boost smile

    Yes, the summary is another place to place keywords and tags to help with ranking. It also gives you a unique opportunity to write a simple paragraph that entices the searcher.
