    I just noticed this new feature under My Account and was wondering what everyone else thinks of it. It says its still in beta and I don't know how long it's been there, but I think it's nice that Hubpages is making the effort to do a little SEO research for us. What does everyone else think of the Title Tuner?

      When you change the title don't that change the url?  If so that means when you tune a title you better change it in your Google account are you won't get credit for clicks.  Somebody let me no one way or another.  I tried testing it by pasting the link from the updated title in my channels and the first one worked just like if I was adding a new hub but the second title the box turned read and it said no duplicate url or something like that my point is Im not sure if you have to change the url in your Google account

        The URL is the one thing set in stone about hubs - so that all backlinks remain relevant.

        The only way to change the URL is make a new hub and copy and paste the information in it.

        As to creating a channel - it must have turned red because you were already tracking that URL - you can't track the same URL twice.

    I've been a bit annoyed with this place recently with a lot of nitpicking of my hubs, but now I am back in love with HubPages. This tool is terrific, especially if your hubs are a few months old.

    I've also found a few new keywords that I should think about hubbing about.

    As to trackers - use Google Analytics it's much better in the long run.

    I've tried title tuner, its significant for those who are new to web or does'nt know a lot about seo.
    But I found those titles a little misfit. Well, hopefully HP team gonna fix those things and we'll get the quality work smile
    Hope for the best

      I like the tuner except I don't think adding 'is' or 'and' make much difference...

    The words "your" vs "my" also can affect traffic.

    I tried the title tuner yesterday on 10 of my hubs. Today, 6 of them have red arrows - yay!

    It just came out recently.  I tried it - some of the suggestions were silly, but some were good and I implemented them.

    I have tweaked some titles. However, it takes time to let google bots/crawlers to come back to your hubs and index them with the changes.

    I tried it out.  Got a few useful suggestions, and some that made no real sense for the title.  It was sort of useful for some of them.  Still waiting to see if it makes any real difference in traffic.

    I gave it a go, this provides us with a good look at relevant words for possible title improvements and key word additions.  Hubs is all about everyone doing better as a community and I trust this is a good tool.  I liked the experience and found it easy to navigate.

    I'm always happy to see such effort go into our community.  smile

      I've made some changes also and will look forward to seeing the results.  Think that this is a brilliant move by the hubpages staff to try and improve results for all of us.

    Grateful to have this tool. Have just started using it but so far the suggestions have been logical and easy to implement.
    Another kudo to the HP team.
    THANK YOU!!!

    Mine have been good overall, except it keeps insisting I add Costco to my hub on wooden nutcrackers.

    The title tuner requires people to use good judgment to tweak their titles.  That said I was the first person to use it and I saw really good results.  The title is one of the most important elements of a hub.

      It is very easy to use and I have tweaked a few hubs.

    I like the fact that I no longer have to open a hub to see what the tool suggests.
    There are times when I ignore the tool, and other times when I listen and make the suggested changes.
    The new feature is great because it collates the info from all my hubs and offers me the opportunity to change without opening the hub in question.

    I have used in 5 of my hubs and waiting to know the results.

    overall I like the tool, I wish you could use it at the hub level (especially when you first create the title)

      agvulpesposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Shoot me if I'm wrong here smile but the title tuner only suggests words that have been used by searchers that came to your hub with the suggested words in the search phrase. Therefore it is only useful for Hubs that have been up and about for a while and get a bit of traffic!smile
      That would be the reason you may not be seeing all of your Hubs on the Title Tuner smile
      Having said that I have used the tool and I do like it. Not so much the Photo Album.

    I've used the title tuner and I think its worth it. I've had a few more red arrows since I did that. smile

    The title tuner was very cool, hoping to see positive results. Titling is a weak area for me.

    I would love to be able to use that before publishing but I understand why it wouldn't work.

    I love the photos feature too. Very cool to change my profile pic to a pic from a hub that fast.

      As I know title tuner is useful. It give us some suggestions about keywords that bring our hub in the search engine search result . So we can add the keyword into the title to make our hub more easily to be recognized by search engine and get a better rank.

    With this deluge of title changes, Google is probably having a hissy fit. smile
