      Oh...yes.  I've put it everywhere.  The problem is that there are a lot of articles about the same thing.  I am trying to narrow it a bit...maybe concentrate more on the "scam" part.

        For the exact search- "the student loan scam"- your article come in the first page of Google. I think the phrase "student load" is too competitive.

        You might have put it everywhere, but you haven't gained a single backlink to that hub according to Market Samurai.

        You are not on-page optimized for any keyword, not even student loan. Student loan scam isn't worth going for, there are barely any searches.

        On all the other keywords - student loan, student loan debt, credit card debt etc, the competition is enormous.

        Even here on HP there are 1000 hubs about student loans.

        Richie is right. The time to check out the competition etc is before you write the hub.

        Can't believe that after two years you still don't seem to understand basic keyword research.

      Do you find it flows or is it too choppy?

        I think all the topics can not be covered with the same natural touch of a writer.But,this hub flows as natural as your other hubs.

    I always do a little scout before I write a hub to see how many other articles exist about a subject
