For instance, I currently have two articles about Weight Watchers, to which I included the registered trademark symbol. Does that symbol or any other symbol limit the chances of Hubs being found by a search engine, whether Google, HubPages, or any others? I'd appreciate any information you might be able to give me. Thank you!
Sorry Rochelle typo I will try again I did go look at her profile page before I answered her question. I have never seen anyone use a trademark symbol within a title before here at HubPages and am just curious to why she would want to.

I didn't really think that it was appropriate to create a video for this, but I did want to bring up something that's as important as anything else when it comes to writing a Hub (well, besides writing great content, of...
Did some of you noticed an option Title tuner in hubpages? It suggests you how to tune your title to get more traffic. It worked for me. There was 3 fold increase in trafic when I just added a key word hubpages...
