Introduction to the Keyword Processing Tool
This program extracts keywords from a "hub", submits the keywords to search engines, and scans the results for the URL of the hub. This procedure can be performed by hand, but it's a time consuming process. The information generated by the program is useful for writers who desire to monetize their hubs.
Checking Keywords on a Hub
For example, assume that you published a hub called "Cats In Space". Before you wrote the hub, you researched keywords to maximize profit and visibility. You identified the keyword phrase AstroCat as a possibly profitable opportunity. Along with AstroCat, you concocted several more keywords that (hopefully) would make you money. You then wrote your hub accordingly.
Several days later, you have the sudden urge to know if any of your keywords are working. By 'working', we mean that your hub URL appears in the top 10 results when the individual keyword phrases are entered into the Google or Yahoo.
This program will answer your questions.
You Could Do it By Hand
You can check all your keywords by hand:
- Open a browser window
- Navigate to Google.com
- Type in your keyword phrase and press Enter
- Study the search results returned by Google. Look for the hub URL.
- Repeat for every keyword and hub you have published.
Obviously this can get slightly tedious if you have over 1500 hubs like Hal Licino.
