need a better title for my hub about expressing breast milk

    Currently titled How to Pump Breastmilk for Your Infant

    things to note:
    - if I google the title without quotes, it doesn't really come up.  There are pages and pages of less relevant information that come up first.
    - google suggests I google "breast milk" rather than the one word "breastmilk" - however I previously found that I had issues using the word "breast" too much in my article, which made it get flagged for inappropriate content.  Even if I were to appeal this through Hub, I feel that safe-search filtering on most search engines would make my article possibly not show up

    This is one of my lower trafficked hubs, but I'm pretty passionate about the topic because when I needed resources on the subject I couldn't find much useful or accurate information, even from experts and so-called "reliable sources" such as from the medical community.

      "Why buy formula when you could get the milk for free?"

        that's actually a pretty fantastic title, but I don't want to alienate anyone regarding their child rearing choices (i.e. I don't want to get into the whole formula vs. breast milk debate)

      I think your title is fine. The main issue I see is that you don't have many hubs and in particular, no other hubs related to the breastfeeding one.

      Google and other search engines like to send traffic to authority websites. You need to build up your account to build trust/authority and in turn build traffic to it.

        that's fair.  I have another related article in the works around weaning off of the breast pump.  I don't, however, want to regurgitate what is already on the internet in 50 million other places regarding breastfeeding, including some 100+ other HP articles.

          No you're right there, I haven't researched that niche so it may well be over saturated. Maybe there's more promise strictly within the topic of pumping?

      You need some photos and videos to get the hub more interesting, try breaking up a hub into more sub titles

    Search results for "How to Pump Breastmilk" on Google.
    https://www.google.com/search?rls=aso&a … Breastmilk

    Take some clues from the titles of the top search results.

    Given that the title contains a tricky keyword, you might consider contacting admin and asking them what words are okay for you to use that won't trip the filters on this end.

    if you are thinking about the possibility of expanding the scope of your subject, then you have to indicate it in the title like, "all about breastfeeding," or "breastfeeding coach". anyway just sharing some thoughts on this. happy living!

      Neither of those suggestions directly relate to the content of the hub.

    I am also still learning to write titles for web articles. But even then I did read your hub. I find it is targeted at working women with infant babies. May be if you could keep this in mind?

      thanks for the feedback!  I did just update the title to include that type of info.  It's longer but I think it will help those who come across the article understand the contents
