Updated on November 24, 2012

Keyword SEO 5 best places to place your keywords in your hub shows you the 5 best places in where famous bloggers like Darren Rowse, owner of the famous problogger uses to net an annual income of $100, 000 from blogging with 1.5 million visitors. Drawn from 8 blogs that earn millions annually.

Keyword analysis and placement are skills famous bloggers like Darren Rowse, owner of the famous problogger uses to net an annual income of $100, 000 from blogging with 1.5 million visitors. There are other blogs that make thousands and millions. One thing I have observed to be common in those blogs is that they use search engine optimization (SEO) techniques. Mostly importantly, is where they place theirkeywords.

If you are writing online for income, than having a bit of knowledge about Search engine optimization (SEO) is absolutely necessary. You really don’t need to be a SEO guru. You have to know what keyword in your hubs. The bottom line is for your hub to have higher ranking in the search engines, bringing more organic traffic to maximize your Hub Page earning.

If you are a SEO guru or keyword analyst, you can stop reading here. If you are a newbie in Hub Pages and care to know about where to place your keywords for search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN, and AOL to index your hubs quickly, then you are in the right place.

Here are some places in your hub where you can place your keywords.


I start every hub by writing out its summary. This gives me the scope to write within. If you aim is to be ranked higher in search engines, than you have to make it easy for the search engine spiders to find your hubs and index them. Therefore always place your targeted keyword in the summary of your hub. Be a bit more creative with your hub summary with the keyword included to capture readers.


Title is where you should always include your keyword or key phrase. The reason is that most search engine give priority to those articles that have keywords or key phrase in their title. Take an example, if you Google up the key phrase, “Make money grow”. In the title, you will find the keywords in bold. The highly ranked articles for a certain keyword or key phrase are the ones that have the keyword of key phrase in the title.

Second line of your hub main content

Personally I have found it effective to place keywords in my second line of my article. You have to experiment and find out what works best for you. My reasoning, which of course worked out just fine is this; if I place one or few keywords in my title, than the once in my second line of article acts as the enforcement. Really this has no valid SEO justification, I only experimented it and since it worked, I use it.

Subheadings of your hubs

You can also place your keywords in the sub headings if you do have them in your article. Subheadings being bold assist the search engine spiders find your hubs quickly.

Photo Caption & Poll Questions

Two most often overlooked spots you can place your keywords are in your photo captions and Poll questions. I just found that out and now I am in the process of editing mu old hubs to include my targeted keywords in the photo captions.

Last paragraph

At least place some keywords in your last paragraph. Search engine also rank articles with targeted keyword in the last paragraph. Before I finish, I wish to show you 8 million dollar blog sites which I analyzed in order to write this hub. There are millions of blogs or website out there but let’s stick to these eight for convenience sake. Visit the blogs and see how they and where they place their targeted keywords or key phrases.

· Gothamist
