I think it would be great to have a heading above the title so that we could create a series of articles or designate something as a review without using the title. For instance: We could have a series such as
and have several articles with the same heading. This would be especially helpful with reviews, as we wouldn't have to use up a portion of the title with the words "Book Review" or whatever. This would need to be implemented in a way that would work with SEO requirements.
HubPages could designate some headings as standard and available to everyone; if someone came up with an original twist, it would be good to be able to reserve that heading for the writer's own work.
This would be a bad idea, because Google hates repetitive titles: it sees them as a sign of spun articles (the same article rewritten multiple times). So using exactly the same words in titles would be sabotaging your own work.
It might be possible to do something as an extension of the categories system, but I can't see HubPages investing the programming effort or cost. The navigation on HubPages is designed to encourage broad browsing rather than staying within a single Hubber's sub-domain. Recently, they've made several changes to encourage it even more, so I think it's fair to say it's deliberate.
What's the best way to title a book review or similar article?
The best way to write any title is to think what people would type into Google to find it.
I don't think people would type in "book review: title", would they? I normally type, "title review". So my first choice of title would be "title: review". And I'd use the ratings capsule so it gets classified as a review.

I know the average person probably doesn't use Heading 4 much, but I just had occasion to use it, and I notice that it looks more prominent than Heading 3 - which makes it look pretty peculiar in a hierarchy. Any...

I wanted to share two trends I see in content that are very successful today. The first one is what I call the opposing argument to the search term. Google wants balanced search results. You will often see articles that...
