    I must not be grasping "Key Words" I had used google adwords to choose the best title and put in tags that were relevent to the subject (Differen't ways it could be searched). For all 7 of my Hubs I have only recieved 9 views from google (355 total). I had just started backlinking to increase my position on google, yet, I don't believe it has helped. Is it my material that is affecting me or just the tags?

      Thank you for your advice. I'm always hard on myself for I strive for excellence, and 120 hours is plenty to learn a new subject. Moral of the story, I feel as if I have no one to blame but myself. I'm glad you enjoyed my articles!

    NC: One of your problems is that your titles are way too common and thus have a ton of competition.  First instance, you have one Hub called simply "Bike Trip".  Google coughs up 326 million results for that keyword phrase, and an allintitle: search turns up 365,000 other pages with those words in the title.  You're going to have trouble getting traffic for those keywords.  Read up on long-tail keywords and how to pick phrases that have less competition. 

    Also, what Dame Scribe said.  Don't be so hard on yourself. It's a learning process. smile

      Thank you! I guess I miss understood the concept. I figured that since more people search for those key words that it would be better. and if I made it specific it would be searched for less. But, I am reading about "long tail keywords" which was great advice.

    NC: After learning about long-tail keywords, you might want to try the Keyword Researcher -- http://keywordresearcher.org/free/
