This is probably a very basic question but if you could please help me out here.
I know on my website there is a specific spot for the "alt tag" or alternative tag for when the photo cannot be displayed. For HubPages, is the "alt tag" our description or is there another location?

What's the difference between keywords and tags?This is a question only a newbie to computers would ask, I'm sure, but I bought my very first computer a little over a year ago and hope you could write a hub-or an email-about this. I've looked at some answers given by other hubbers and am...

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?
