Why does everyone try to explain SEO again and again?
All the time I see hubs that tell the basics of keywords in your title and headers, get some backlinks, etc. There are so many hubs and websites already out there explaining it much better. These hubs have nothing new to offer.
Why do people keep writing SEO hubs?
Some information available on websites is outdated or incorrect. Or maybe many hubbers feel that they can say it better. There are many articles on hubpages - travel articles, tech articles, etc etc etc... that have been explained several times throughout the Internet, but people on HubPages continue to rank and make money. Maybe many hubbers do not have quality articles about a specific topic, like you said, but there are hubbers who do well with their hubs regardless of how many times a topic has been done. I have several SEO hubs up and all of them do well. As people continue to do well with a particular topic, there will be more and more articles popping up on the same topic.
I know right. There are so many great hubs, forum discussions and answers.
SEO only changes if the search engine operators change....
I don't know -- most people looking to make money don't search SEO -- I know I didn't the first time.
I know I find it very annoying. People find that they think they can write a new slant on the topic because the topic of SEO is very ambiguous and hard to understand. I can't really get to grips with the topic anyways after reading several of the articles, except that search engines look at you keywords and that they count the number of links to your hub from other sources. I think that the way forward is just to post you articles on social networking sites, as you can reach hundreds of your friends and because they are your friends or know you, most of them are likely to read the article just to see what it is like out of curiosity even if it does not interest them.
These people knew what the market demands. This is advantageous for them because this topic will increase their traffic hubs although the content of the topic is still the same or no better. I think that's their goal to write about SEO
yes I know its very dull isn't it. I try to stay right away from the "standard" seo basics topic because:
a) its not worth jack anymore, and b) endless repetition is lame.
the majority of those SEO hubs you're talking about are likely written for the one (ultimately nofollow) link out.

Have you ever purchased books on search engine optimization?I have recently ordered two books about SEO and I am wondering have you (other hubbers) got some in your private collection. If you have books about SEO that have helped you to get a better page rank, please state the title and the author!

I came across this piece of advice in the first part of the Learning Center:"Write to educate your readers on your topic: create content on subjects that you are an expert; don't create content for search engines, a link, or to sell a product. Hubs that are written for readers have a higher...
