Are your hubs directed to have search engine optimization with lot of key words?
I have seen blogs, hubs and in forum discussions that the contributors are writing in such a way that the key words used are as per search engine's requirement. But I prefer to write a simple Indian Style English without bothering for key words or to be shown in top searches as earning online is not my motive but writing hubs or blogs is my passion.
Still..If you want to write some good content, which will be recognized, you should think at least a bit how to deliver your articles to your audience..It's not that hard actually and I discovered that by writing articles using natural language will probably get you pretty high on search results list..Of course, you need to have good and helpful content
Why not incorporate a few long-tail, high-performing keywords in your hubs? Earning even a small amount while doing the thing you love most can be very satisfying. It's not that hard, free tools are available out there including the google adwords keyword too. All of my hubs are keyword optimized and each one of them is about a topic I really love so creating them wasn't a hassle at all.
Yes, keywords are important, but don't try to 'Over Optimize' for them. If you're writing on a subject that you're knowledgable about and writing in an engaging and open way, you'll naturally use the terms that people will search for.
The best way to approach writing a hub is to think: If I didn't know anything about this subject, what would I want this article to tell me? Break it down into key points of interest and facts and write quality content around those central points.
Remember too that you're writing for human beings. So many people get caught up on what they *think* Google wants to see, where the truth is that Google is getting better and better at recognising natural language and user intent.
Certainly, you'll want to research keywords (and there are many excellent hubs here that will teach you how to do that) and you should certainly bear them in mind when writing your article, but don't let that become the sole focus. Remember who you're writing for and why, the rest will follow.
