Tags are as Important as Catchy Title

I have no rights to question any policy that a publishing site is regulated on its site. But as one of its content creators - I have that option to ask question. If you're an online writer and you are writing for a publishing site - would you care to publish your column, article or hub without keywords or tags? Tags are important for every article. They help attract traffic and views to any article page. 



Search engines are there to help the million surfers for any terms that they are searching on the Internet. Tags assist in Google search algorithms and other search engines and surfers - with out them your pages will be hard to find. Tags are as important as catchy title. It surprised me to see and to learn that hubpages.com has now phased out tags on every hub a hubber would submit for publication. 

HubPages explains, "Tags and used to be very important on HubPages, but due to abuse by spammers, we developed an automated system that develops tags for Hubs automatically which will ultimately save you time and leave Hubbers less dumbfounded when trying to determine which tags are or are not appropriate."


I was about to submit a hub at HubPages but I can't. I noticed it that the tag section on their hub editor is missing. I already done all the polishing make-ups of my hub but without tags yet, so I just kept it as unpublished status. I even asked from other hubbers if they also experienced what I found. Cuttler said, "I have just published two hubs without the tags. I'll give it a day and investigate how the traffic is going to be." Another hubber has replied my question. "Tags are being phased out, they are only for internal HubPages use anyway," replied Uninvited Writer.

Now I am planning to delete the hub from HubPages and bring it out from the site and offer it to other publishing sites I am writing for. I am not used to publish item on the Internet without tags. This is Internet. Many writers from around the world are competing one another and tags help them to shine in the competition. And to publish articles, columns or hubs online without tags seem to me ineffective.

On November 18, 2012, I published a column at ExpertsColumn entitled: How Important are Keywords and Tags for Our Columns Online Writing? I had differentiated competitive keywords from non-competitive keywords down to keyword phrases and tags. So to know that HubPages has phased out tags - it amused me so much. That's all for now guys. Thank you for your time.
