    Any advice and ideas on how to change that would be much appreciated.

      Just quickly...the title does not let people know what it is about. I would have civil rights in there somewhere

        Yep, I did that for the first year or whatever. Along with legal rights, attorneys, lawyers, contracts, lawsuits, and darn near all the other high-paying keywords that are in the subheadings. smile

          That may be, but the way it is now, you are not giving a reader any reason to read this text. The title's got to tantalize and the text has to deliver on the title. That's not SEO...that's just responsible writing.

            You and Writer are right. smile I'm now thinking about what else to tack back on it. smile

        This is absolutely right. Your title has nothing to do with your text. "Giving Your Rights Away Because You Don't Read Fine Print," although awkward, would be a plus.

    What are my Civil Rights.  Does your Civil Rights still exist?


    I am not very imaginative when it comes to titles.  I do however get found by search engines?

      Your excellent suggestion just caused me to add 3 more words to the title, apparently google loves this particular phrase.

        I might shorten it to "Civil Rights:  Do mine still exist?"

          Yours is an intelligent and well thought-out title. Unfortunately, those don't seem to work anymore. I'll try it if the present experiment doesn't work. smile

    Aside from the title, I've also just made another counter-intuitive (or not) change. I've taken it out of the legal category and put it into politics.

    As you can see, I'm grasping at straws and will consider anything even remotely plausible. smile

    Thanks again everyone. I think I have now sufficiently re-mangled this hub enough to make google coagulate on it awhile... smile smile smile

    Well, I've now determined that both intelligent and stupid do not seem to work. So, I've decided to go back to intelligent. Specifically, I have now implemented the kind suggestions that you guys have made in this thread. Thanks again. We'll see what happens in another 5 weeks. smile smile smile

    Hi Paradigmsearch smile aside from playing around with your 'corpse' tongue lol have you checked upon the backlinks of your competition - to find how, why, what, etc., gives them good SE ranking? wink just a thought. smile

      Alas, no. I'm used to my hubs generating backlinks on their own. big_smile
