    Whew!  I finished my 30th hub for the 60DC2 challenge.  So far, this has been a wonderful experience with some outstanding folks.

    I have learned a lot about using twitter and SEO from the participants.

    sunforgedposted 6 years ago

    Something to look into on your hubs - many are using this "::" in their titles as a seperator - it may look pretty but it isnt read as a proper character by Twitter and rss readers


    ex)

    How To SEO :: On-Page Optimization

    now if I share that hub via Twitter:

    its going to convert to this:

    How To SEO %3A%3A On-Page Optimization, hxtp://hubpages.com/t/181c41


    in a feed reader it will also be garbled

    pretty much the only web "safe" separators for a title are - and _

    also:

    scan through the feed and peek at your snippet text:

    http://hubpages.com/tag/60dc2/latest


    If you have your custom summaries set to automatic - you may have issues -

    you dont want the first visible words to be "photo credit" or some garble from having an ad capsule picked up first

    read the 60dc on page seo info and perhaps even look deeper check out seomoz - get those keywords and pertinent info in your first sentences.

    1. shazwellyn profile image84
      shazwellynposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I tend to delete these characters when posting to twitter... does this still not have an affect or is it to do with rssfeed submission?

      1. sunforged profile image73
        sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        You delete the characters - but who else would bother? our automated services certainly arent!

        It relates to how your title is read by feeds and sharing services, one would hope you are not the only one sharing.

        "::" if that cant be read and " - " this can, why use the limited choice?

        Ive been using " | " this - which I will be removing also, for the same reason.

        1. shazwellyn profile image84
          shazwellynposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Oh, so a dash is better use and you get to keep the keywords separate too!  Is that correct?

          prettydarkhorseposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Thanks for this SF, I have one hub like this one, I will change it, and congrats to all of us, I can see that the output of the group is awesome, I scanned all hubs from the group and we are doing great! I need to read hubs for support as well!

          And SF, your new avatar is so cute!

            thanks! I think youve seen the album on FB right?

            1. prettydarkhorse profile image64
              prettydarkhorseposted 6 years ago in reply to this

              I saw the album before, yes your baby is cute. I think he looks like you.
              I can't access my facebook for four days now, they need a cellphone number to send the access code (for verification) to them I cant log in to my account, I don't have a cellphone for the reason that I don't need it, I have two landlines and when I call overseas landlines are clearer.
              So I don't know yet if I have to buy a cellphone or just email them and tell them that I don't have a cellphone.

              1. sunforged profile image73
                sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

                i dont think that will work - your best bet is to just use a friends cell who doesnt use FB.

        Ummm.... but then ::  attracts the eye on google, giving the upper hand to our competitors...  It is a fine balance and I, guess, it is largly down to what you are targeting.  If you are targeting twitter, then this :: would not be an advantage, but if you are targeting Google, it would be.  Although, you are targeting google indirectly when posting on twitter.  What does the "I" convert to on twitter?

        Having said that... Google searches are more now and well established, whereas twitter is a very new concept when it comes to hash links.

        *writing as I am thinking again - nice that you have given me some more food for thought*

        Which course is the best, me thinks? *open to debate*

        1. sunforged profile image73
          sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          @shaz- " | " is also not read

          I guess "::" could be attractive to searchers . It wouldnt effect me personally but you never know, variety has power - keyword use (auto-bolded) in the summary tends to be sufficient

          "-" or "_" over ": or , or  | " would not be about twitter , it would be about broad websafe title convention.

          @ Mutiny

          My version: hxtp://hubpages.com/hub/buy-avatar

          There are better versions under a "capstone" search - its an old HP program - but essentially - write a broad hub that references your individual group hubs and link to each one.

          Its a nice way to try out a new term and funnel traffic into specific hubs.

          Marissa Wright has a really good version but also has a lot of hubs so I couldnt find it quickly


          @PDH

          He!

          I will tell her you said that!

        shazwellynposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        I have given this a lot of thought.  As I am not into automation - just a personal preference, and weighing up the pro's and cons.  I am taking the psychological view of attracting the eye. I feel that a font type that stands out from the crowd in the first page or so of google search position is favourable to attracting traffic.  Something unusual amongst a boring 'same old' list attracts the eye first and foremost, whilst the bolding element compliments and makes the listing appropriate to the searcher.

        I can understand, for you, that these types of characters are a hinderance to the automation process, but for me, I just manually take them out when posting to twitter.  And... hey ho, if I don't, someone else's eye will be attracted to the 'mistake' and they might just click!

        Good to feed my brain with a challenge though SF.  Keep em coming good and fast! lol big_smile

      I would have linked to that one, but it is far more complicated than my use of "capstone"

      Consider my suggestion as - "Table of contents"

      -just dont look for Darksides hub on that one either!

    I could use a little criticism. I did my first sales hub. I post a forum thread in our forum, and the Extreme Hub Makeover forum also.

    Give me any thoughts? It would be much appreciated. smile

      I like it Cags.  I personally like separating the various groups with a decorative horizontal line (where appropriate).  In my eyes, it breaks up the "groupings" a bit cleaner.

      But you did a wonderful job on this!
