Hello, I'm new to HubPages. If you could critique my first hub about St Andrews, Scotland it would be appreciated. I'm writing here commercially.
I'm attempting to target keywords, etc, without hurting the clarity and usefulness of the content.
My plan is to do a few articles about St Andrews (golf, hotels, natural walks, visiting the University) and link them together. I know the town well, so I thought it would be a good topic to learn my way around.
Hi there, and welcome to Hubpages! I have to be brutally honest -- I started reading your hub and just couldn't get past the million "St. Andrews, Scotland (Saint Andrews, Scotland)," so I didn't read much more than the first two paragraphs.
Your first lesson is that the reader comes before everything, including the search engines. Research your keywords, write for the people who will be reading the hub and then tweak it so that the search engines find it.
Many hubs/web pages have both primary and secondary keywords -- but not two primary keywords, which is what you've tried to do. My suggestion? Back to the drawing board and pick one spelling over the other. Work your secondary keyword into the body of the text once or twice and then into your tags. You could also write a similar (but unique) hub utilizing the second keyword.
Okay, I've written my second hub -- this is the last review I'll ask for -- if you can have a look at my info. on investing in silver.
Specifically, I have a number of questions,
(1) What are your opinions on multiple medias in a Hub (writing, video, news feed,...)?
(2) Does having changing content, i.e., a news feed, boost your search engine position?
(3) Does linking to other Hubpages articles (yours or others') boost your Hubpages' rank?

I've read a lot about the importance of doing keyword research, but then you also get the impression that to really do that research properly can take a long time unless you get lucky early on or really know what you...
