Choose A Title So Appealing Readers Will Flock As If They're Going To See Pictures of Naked Women or Naked Men.

First Use a Catchy Title To Lure Them In-Then Guilt Them Into Reading Your Other Hubs

When writing a new Hub, I find the first obstacle to overcome is the title. Do I write something catchy that rhymes, should I use a snippet of the article, or should I flat out lie and make up a title that has nothing to do with what I am going to write about. For this Hub, I chose the third option and made up the title to see how many of you would actually come to look at naked bodies. I will be taking a poll later. (Please be honest!)

What I am really writing about is how easy it is to write a Hub but how difficult it is to get people to actually read them. As I'm sure you will see shortly, this Hub is sure to attract a lot of people just by the title. So we can conclude that the subject you are writing about and the title of your Hub are what will either attract to or turn away other Hubbers from your Hub. It could be the most interesting well researched Hub ever written, (like many of the ones I've written) but nobody ever reads them. Why? Well......I don't actually..... know why. That's right, I started writing this Hub because I was pissed off that I can't get any freaking traffic to my freaking Hubs unless I'm writing about the bitch and her brother that live with me! So as I was saying, it doesn't matter what you write about, nobody's ever gonna read your crappy Hub anyway so what's the point? Save yourself the time and watch TV and eat a plate of Christmas cookies and enjoy yourself. Why put yourself out there and try to give people information they don't really want? Oh sure I published a really cool Hub yesterday about this really cool place to learn about Internet marketing, but did I expect anyone to read it? Hell no, why would they? I only have seventeen fans and I'm sure they have better things to do than to read my hubs. They can make much better use of their time by learning how to cure their hangovers or something like that. And I was right to think that way, wasn't I, nobody read it so why should I care? I guess that means that this Hub is kind of pointless too.

I am so sorry about that. I don't know what came over me. I guess I was just a tiny bit upset that nobody wants to read my very interesting, well written, thought of for days before I wrote and then changed them seven times before they were right Hubs. But I'm over it now. I don't really care anymore. I don't want a Christmas miracle. I'll just sit in my house and eat stale Christmas cookies and tell my family my new favorite Christmas story "The Night Before Christmas in Hell" by fellow Hubber B.T. Evilpants.

Do The Right Thing-Be Kind To Fellow Hubbers

If you look at all of my Hubs, you will see a pattern developing. I seem to have this complex that nobody loves me here in Hub Pages. It's not true, I really don't have a complex at all. In fact, I really don't care what you people think of me or my writing. I am really just trying to become part of this amazing community we have here. Okay, I do care, a little about what you think.  So, I try to be a nice guy. I try to read as many Hubs as I can. I try to leave positive comments to everyone. And when I write, I write from my heart and try not to offend anyone. Is it too much to ask for the same in return?

So the next time you sit down at your computer and click on Hub Pages, think of the other people sitting down at their computer waiting to hear back from people like you, the everyday Hubber. Leave a comment, whether you like it or not, just to let them know you were there. You don't even have to say it was good, just say something like "Hi, I just read your Hub. Have a nice day". That way he or she knows you were there and didn't like their Hub but you didn't have to insult them.

And don't forget to rate the Hubs you read. That is really important to the Hub score.

So go now and get reading. I expect all of you to start with my Hubs, of course, and read all of them. Rate them (I know some of them are bad) and don't you dare leave me a bad comment! I know where you Hub! Love to all and Merry Christmas!

Hub Update May 3, 2010

I wanted to update the many readers of this Hub because it's been so popular.  The problem is that the title has had to be changed and some of the content may not make sense if you didn't read it from the beginning.

The original title "See Pictures of Naked Women and Naked Men Right Here" was allowed for an entire year before it was reviewed by the nice people at Hub Pages and deemed inappropriate and misleading.  It was banned pending a title and tag change to represent more accurately what the article was about.

So in the first year I had an average of 40 views per day, great for a Hub I wrote more for fun than anything.  Since the changes, the average dropped to 3 per day.  Evidence that more people today are looking to see pictures of naked people than how to write good article titles.

So today, May 3rd, 2010, I decided to change the title one more time to see if I can get some of the fire back.  As of my last check today, this Hub has had 22007 views since the first day, by far the most any of my Hubs have and more than all of the others put together.  Thus proving my initial message, You need to choose a great title to get people to read.

Take good care and thanks for reading!

Okay. I confess. I'm mainly here because I stalked Rockinjoe. But hey, it's not a bad hub. It's well written, it's in proper English, you can spell, you haven't used unnecessary capital letters, there's humour and pathos. Give it time. Traffic will flow as people get to know you. Happy Christmas!

Don't bother Jim. Already been done, as an experiment. Several hubbers participated. B.T. Evilpants' other alter-ego (forget the hub-name!) started it.

Hi Jim,

I came to visit your hub because I guessed from the title it would anything BUT naked bodies, and I was right. It is very true the title is the key to traffic. Keep up your great writing, the fans will soon follow, and you will get new ones steadily I am sure, (as that is what happened in my case). Happy Christmas :)

I was certain that you were playing this trick on us. At least Rockinjoe's hub on 

How To Get a Great Hand Job 

and my hub on

How to give great oral sex - the three biggest secrets

were partly relevant to the title. As punishment for blatent dishonesty, you have to post a couple of your own sizzling photos here. What do the rest of us think? Consensus?


Amanda Severn profile image

Definitely Benson! I'll second that!

Ardie profile image

Ardie 7 years ago from Neverland

Hi Jim,

I checked into your Hub because of the title, but not to see naked pics. Many hubbers have been writing entertaining hubs lately using titles such as the ones already mentioned in the comments. And I was not disappointed, I was met with yet another great article with a catchy title, like I thought I would. Keep up your writing :) Oh, and I voted for your poll AND i want the promised pictures along with Benson and rockinjoe.

First of all I am blown away by all of you responding to my little Hub, thank you all.

MistyH- as usual thanks for the encouragment.

Benson/Amanda/MistyH/rockinjoe-Not gonna happen! Especially not of me. You couldn't handle it! Beleive me. :)

Ardie-I think you're a liar. You came to see naked bodies and you know it! :) Thank you so much for the nice remarks. I hope you know I was only having some fun with you.

Benson-You are correct, it is getting hot in here. Turn off the heat for me!

Yeah, Jim. You've pretty much backed yourself into a corner here. I produced My Wife's naked chest for everyone's enjoyment, Benson provided oral sex tips and my buddy Cindy came through with actual 100% tit photos-and more.

You've falsely advertised. It's time to pay the piper.

Jim Batuyong 7 years ago from Anaheim, CA Author

Sorry Ardie, don't worry your secret is safe.

CrisA-Sounds like you've got some issues to work out. Let me help. Say this out loud "I knew there wasn't going to be pictures of naked people but I'm still dissappointed there wasn't". That should get you started. Thanks for the comment.

Christoph Reilly profile image

Christoph Reilly 7 years ago from St. Louis

I came not because I wanted to see pics of naked people, but I was stalking Ardie (and I was hoping she was naked!)  Seriously, I figured this was another of those double-entrende titles that we've seen so much of here lately, and frankly, their time has passed and I had no desire to read another one. I understand where you are coming from.  Nobody wants to write in a vacuum.  I think you are doing thigs right, reading other peoples stuff and leaving comments is a great way to start.  People will come to read your stuff to see what you are about, and if they like what they see they'll become your fan and start reading your stuff.  You're only here three weeks.  It takes a little time.  As for catchy, cute titles (I do this alot because I write a lot of humor), they're great for hubpages traffic, but that traffic goes away and if you're not getting search engine traffic the hub will languish in the basement, as many of mine do.  I try to do both, with a title that is both a searchable and somewhat cutsey (in some cases.)  Not that I'm an expert. I'm pretty new too, and I still struggle with this "title" stuff.

Anyway, keep up the good work!


Jim Batuyong profile image

Jim Batuyong 7 years ago from Anaheim, CA Author

Thank you ladies. Nice to see you too.

Jim Batuyong 7 years ago from Anaheim, CA Author

Now wait just a darn minute Christoph. If you're gonna come around here and start insulting me with words like "double-entrende" I'm gonna have to ask you to leave. :) And what is it about wanting to see Ardie naked? She's pure and innocent as the driven snow. Just ask her, she'll tell you. (Don't worry Ardie, I've got your back) As for the other stuff you talked about, I know you're absolutely right. And truthfully, I was sort of just killing time when I wrote this but it sure has been fun getting some response for once. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

Ardie 7 years ago from Neverland

Christoph Reilly, Isnt that how most people are adorned when they are visiting HubPages?! :)

Christoph Reilly profile image

Christoph Reilly 7 years ago from St. Louis

Jim: I know everyone says it, but it's true: Write good content and the readership will come, or to paraphrase Field Of Dreams...oh, to hell with it. You get the idea.

Ardie: That's what I thought. There is nothing better than getting naked and surfing hubpages...it's so...breezy!


Jim Batuyong profile image

Jim Batuyong 7 years ago from Anaheim, CA Author

Yes I do Christoph. Thanks for saving us from the rest of that.

I've never tried that whole naked while surfing Hub Pages but I think my wife would get upset for sitting in the chair like that. Gross!


Mighty Mom profile image

Mighty Mom 7 years ago from Where Left is Right, CA

Well, I came because HubPages is THE place where people -- both men and women,  come to BARE themselves through their writing. So I naturally assumed that's what would be happening here on your hub, Jim. You know, like let it all hang out...

Also, I followed Christoph here. You may or may not know that Christoph has recently remodeled his house with a giant steam shower big enough to accommodate a party full of hubbers (and a dirty spinal cord or two). I thought perhaps Christoph was over here inviting you to join the group shower. You'd fit right in -- but it's bring your own soap:-).


Ardie profile image

Hi Jim, Thanks for having my back...and for the record, I would probably yell at my husband for sitting his bare behind on my chair, too :D

I knew it! MM came here looking for nudie pics of young naked studs.

Shocking! Absolutely shocking... yet genuinely arousing...


Jim Batuyong profile image

Jim Batuyong 7 years ago from Anaheim, CA Author

Mighty Mom-I thought I remembered reading about that someplace. But I guess I don't fit in with his party plans because I didn't get the invite. Maybe it was that whole double-entrende thing he accused me of earlier, I don't know. Guess I'll have to continue to bare myself right here. Thanks for the kind words.

Ardie-Not a pretty thought is it?


Jim Batuyong profile image

Jim Batuyong 7 years ago from Anaheim, CA Author

I know what you mean CW, I was thinking the same thing when I read her comment. To quote Austin Powers "Do I make you......aw you get the idea. Way to go MM


Mighty Mom profile image

Mighty Mom 7 years ago from Where Left is Right, CA

LOL. Young Naked Studs gives me an idea for a hub:-). But as Christoph said, the double entendre thing has been a bit overworked recently.

And CW -- why would I want to see pics of young naked guys when there's you? And where the heck have you been? Glad to see you back. Jim -- you could take a few lessons about baring yourself from Constant Walker. Whenever we choose ups sides "shirts" vs. "skins" he always chooses "skins" cuz that's just the kind of selfless, willing to share and bare kinda guy he is:-). MM


Constant Walker profile image

Constant Walker 7 years ago from Springfield, Oregon

LOL  Good ones... and I AM very unselfish that way.  It's more of a flaw than anything else...  People think I'm showing off... when I'm really just being selfless. Everyone should enjoy me as much as I do...

Only you truly understand me...

Did you use "double entendre" and "overworked" in the same sentance?!?  I know there's a joke there!


Jim Batuyong profile image

Jim Batuyong 7 years ago from Anaheim, CA Author

I am kind of shy when it comes to baring myself. But I can see how hanging out with you guys will change that quickly.

Good question Ardie. I think Constant Walker was the only one who actually confessed to doing it. But I sure was getting a lot of heat from a few people earlier today to show my "stuff" so I think they came looking for a peek too.

whoelsecouldib 7 years ago from Alabama

I did not come to your hub to see naked pictures. I came because I could not figure out what that was on that dudes belly in your pic next to your article summary. Pic was kinda blurry and I was trying to see if I could figure it out.

There is sooooo much on the internet to read. Billions and billions of tidbits of info. Do not take it to heart. People never seem to rate articles for some reason. They are not writers on HubPages, Squidoo, Ezine, and the like, so they have no idea that it even matters or they may not even notice the thumbs up, the stars, or whatever rating system the site uses. It is a hindrance for us and it can tend to hurt your feelings or pride or whatever... Don't let it do that to you.


Jim Batuyong profile image

Jim Batuyong 7 years ago from Anaheim, CA Author

Sorry about the blurry pic. It's a guy with a "six pack" (of beer) on his belly.

The fact that there are so many other things you could have read and yet are still here commenting on my liitle Hub is very flattering. I am learning rather quickly from all of the experienced Hubbers, not to worry about who's not here, just be grateful for who shows up. So thank you so much for all of you that have.

Sorry to disappoint blackjack, I just didn't have the guts. I was pressured by a few other Hubbers into showing a bit of skin but I just couldn't go all the way. There was another Hubber who, shortly after my Hub, did post some very nice pictures. If you get a chance, go look at Constant Walkers Hub. It's almost as good as mine :) Thanks for the comment.

LOL MyThing68, would you happen to be female? Just an assumption. Yeah I was kind of slacking when that picture was taken. (yeah right) Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Nothing like the promise of naked pictures to attract a audience. I ahve seen this used several times on the internet. Works good yes.

Skipped this hub initially because at my age, I'm in the "seen one, don't need to see them all" stage of life (should the hub had actually had naked bodies).  Mostly, I figured it was another bait and switch title, which no matter how clever, if they have to rely on sexy topic sells, isn't for me either.  Nothing personal to anyone on that, just my personal preferences in how much time I'm willing to invest in reading with low vision. 

From a marketing research background for Fortune 500s -- you can get a lot of initial traffic with such tactics -- however, like a lot of things in life, it has a shelf life that expires.  Hubs of real substance, need to be evergreen topics and written really well.  It's like cream that rises to the top in theory. 

Still, you are on the right track, the title and the lead paragraph description need to be attention getting.

I don't think anyone can expect instant success on hubpages.  It takes time to develop a fan base.  Also, if some others are like me, I follow a newbie for awhile to see what they and their hubs are all about.  I may read them and give them a thumbs up, maybe even comment, but I want to see if they are going to stick around.  There are also just too many new people who only see hubs as another angle to "sell something" in their latest get rich quick scheme. 

You write very well, just give it some time.  I like your style of writing very much.

Sorry guys, took a few days off to go riding.

naresh-Thanks it seems to be working for me so far.

osageorange-You know I didn't really plan it it just kind of happened. But I'm glad I did. I got a lot of traffic and I've met a bunch of new really cool people.

Sorry udoblog-I don't like spam and even though you think commenting on my Hub is a waste of time, sometimes it's better to make a name for yourself by actually participating than to keep trying to sell your goods. This Hub wasn't designed to make money for me or other people. I just had a thought in my head and wrote this Hub. That's all.

Jerilee-I had to read your comment a couple of times so I could respond correctly. First of all, thank you so much for even taking the time to read and then comment on my little Hub. I am learning so much from people like you and your kind remarks are very much appreciated. I don't think I will ever do this type of thing again with the title but I'm certainly glad I did. I know it will take time to achieve success here on Hub Pages and I am not going anywhere. Thanks again.

W.M. you suck! I'm not supposed to be duped on my own Hub! When I saw your first comment I thought well I asked for it. Then you nail me to my own words. Well played W.M. Well played indeed.

Update 1/23/09.

I see you are starting to tell the truth, very good. 58% of you came to see naked pictures. Sorry to disappoint but thanks for reading all the way down to here. As of today this Hub has 6070 views. What does that tell you? It tells me that a whole bunch of people want to see naked bodies! Good luck in your search.

Ok I saw you friended me so I decided I'll check out this guys stuff. I have been skimming and frankly you just amuse the heck out of me with some of your stuff. Right there I'm prone to check up on your pages often the naked people didnt attract me even with the War of World Craft video replaying in my head that my fiance had me watch a few years back called "the internets made for porn" thanks to reading this page. :p

Awe, thanks mimind. I'm really glad you can appreciate my humor. I'm not sure I believe you about the naked stuff but I'll leave it at that for now :) Thanks so much for reading and leaving a comment for me. Always nice to hear from fellow Hubbers.
