Best Hub or Article Title Ideas

Analysis of the Best Hubs

Since I started writing hub, I always visit the best hubs or articles of Hubpages. These hubs are more likely have a hubscore of 90-100. I noticed also that they have comments ranging from 30-1000. I’m wondering why do these hubs stayed on top, even some of them were posted 2 years, 1 year or 6 months ago and some are published days ago but find their way as one of the best hubs.. How do these hubs maintain these high hubscore?

Hubscore is based on a wide range of different factors, including the amount of traffic you get, your reputation in the community, your readers response to your Hubs (like voting them up or down), and the uniqueness and quality of your content.

By examining some of Hubpages Best Hubs, I perceived that aside from quality hub content, the experienced hubbers followed some techniques on how to have a better hub title.

I have come up with Top 10 Hub Title Ideas (in no particular order) to get a higher hubscore and generate more hub traffic. These hub title ideas will also serve as a guide for us, new hubbers in choosing our hub titles.

Top 10 Titles of Hubpages Best Hubs

1. Top 10…

Google keyword tool shows that the phrase “Top 10 list” is related with thousands of different keyword combinations - Over 20,400,000 Times A Month! That Is Over 680,000 "Top 10" Searches A Day!

A “Top 10” list is one of the most popular and well known link enticement strategies around and also in Hubpages. It is essential that you find an unused keyword niche. Be original, controversial or educational.

Top 10 lists are linked to quite often. If your list is serious in nature, these lists become trusted resources and often get referred to as useful tools or insight. Proof of which are the hub examples shown below.

Select a topic for your top 10 list and write it. Aim to use a combination of 2 or 3 keywords in your title, keywords often used within your niche.

Keep it simple - The list should include only a 20 - 100 word description about each pick on your list. If you write too much about each pick people will get bored and will tend not finish your list.

Example: Top 10 High Demand High-Paying Jobs in Australia by Patty Inglish, MS published 19 months ago

2. List of 100…

We, humans, are hardwired to like lists because we love order, especially when someone else has done the organization for us. Lists of 100 items attract readers because they are browse-friendly and fast. Readers also love to share lists and comment on them which will result in much more traffic of your hub.

Make a 100 list in your niche. It could be the "100 Best," "100 Worst," "100 Must-See,"or anything else related. Be sure to use a low competition keyword in your hub title.

But don't forget the infamous "Did we miss one of your favorites in this list? Tell us in your comments!" An immediate call to action might be all it takes to make your post go viral.

Example: Top 100 Hubbers by Visitors: Are You On The List? by alocsin published 2 weeks ago

3. How to…

“How to” hubs or articles offer your visitors valuable, usable information. When your visitors get hubs like this, you will become one of their go to resources. “How to” hubs are also very frequently searched for, which means more visitors on your hub in no time.

Be it serious or be it funny, or a combination of the two as you explain in a hub or post how to do something. Be comprehensive and go step by step as you explain something niche-related while using keywords.

Example: How to get started earning money in HubPages by Sweetsusieg published 17 months ago

4. Tips…

Writing a hub that gives people or businesses "Tips" might seem cliché but there is a reason why they are used so often - people read them and share them! A hub that includes a few short tips on how to do something better, quicker or easier can be just what you need to gain the confidence of your visitors. If your visitors trust you, they'll come back to check more of your hubs.

Write a hub like "Easy House Cleaning Tips" or "10 Simple Tips to Grow Your Business." Your tips need not be lengthy or multifaceted; the quicker and easier the tips, the more your readers will love them.

Example: Tips For New Hubbers: Which Is More Important, Hubber Score or Traffic? by hillymillydee published 2 weeks ago

5. Ways to…

Lists are an excellent way to catch your readers eye, especially "To Do" lists that include a list of "Ways To" do something better, faster or easier .

Create a list of 5, 10 or 20 (almost any number will do) "Ways To" do something within your niche. Be sure to use appealing adjectives and popular terms or keywords that your visitors can easily relate to in your title. For example, if your topic is about gardening you could write an article called "10 Ways To Grow Bigger, Sweeter Strawberries".

Example: 5 Ways to Burn Calories (That Aren�t All About Exercise) by Kathryn Vercillo published 2 years ago

6. Ideas…

People always love help getting ideas; take yourself for example. A post that offers ideas up will make your visitors come back for more great ideas in the future, and they will most likely share your extraordinary tips with like minded persons.

Write a hub or an article that offers up ideas for making, writing or doing something.. Make it niche-specific, and don't forget the low competition keywords. It doesn't have to be that the word ideas is incorporated in the title.

Example: Gift Ideas for a 8 Year Old Girl that She Will Love on her Birthday or Christmas by Paul Edmondson published 16 months ago

7. Best…

It's human’s nature to want the best; don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Hubs that let visitors know the best ways to do something or that lists of the best things are important resources. Giving your readers the best will attract them to come back for more.

Write a hub or article about the best. It could be a list or simply a write up of the best person, item, company, actor, brand, movie, practice or anything else that you could think of. Keep it niche related and incorporate a few keywords, and you are good to go!

Example: The Best High Demand and High Paid Jobs from 2011 to 2020 by Patty Inglish, MS published 10 months ago

8. Things…

”Things” is a rather common but often searched word, and almost any post about things which are either useful or funny can help you get more hits, and if it’s done as a list, it will most likely have sharing potential.

Create a list of 4, 5 or 10 things that will provide your readers with information that will be significant to them. These things could really be helpful, detailed tips or tricks, or they could simply be something funny that your readers would enjoy and want to share. Try to make this niche related and insert keywords.

Example: 25 Fun Things to Do at the Beach by Kathryn Vercillo published 3 years ago

9. Free Stuff…

Holy cow! People LOVE free stuff! They love free stuff so much, that one of the most searched things on the web is free stuff. You want in on some of those search results!

Your readers will love you because you tell them where they can score free stuff, and they will share your site with their family, friends and followers. You will get and love all the traffic coming to your hub. This seems like quite a win win situation!

This one is easy: tell people where they can get free stuff. Make a list of websites or places for folks to either get free music or movie downloads or actual, physical items. You don't have to give anything away yourself; just tell others where to find these things.

Example: Freebie Sites (That Actually Work!) by JPeaslee published 2 years ago

10. Interesting and Unique…

Write about something interesting and unique by making a research. It is not easy to tell what is actually considered unique, but if you haven't seen or read anything about it before, the odds are good that it is something special.

Think about writing about an experience you've had. You might even want to elaborate on an abstract thought or idea. This may even be a good time to consider philosophizing.

Example: AdSense Account Disabled and Reinstated- My Experience with Google Adsense by Jamie Brock published 10 months ago

Getting a lot of traffic or viewers to your hub means that you must have the best title and most searched keyword (for search engines) with a low competition inserted in your title.

Did I miss one of your favorite title ideas in this list? Please post it in your comment!

For the experienced hubbers: I understand that you know better than us with regards to titling the hubs, because of your experiences and years of stay in hubpages.

With this, please don't hesitate to share any additional ideas that you may want to impart with new hubbers.

      Great tips. Occasionally, these unique words may be drowned because of competition.

      I look for the slant, especially in a well-covered topic like the American Civil War. I read that there are about 86,000 titles already. This subject is heavy so one problem is how to make the treatment light. Have a look into my Hub "American Civil War: How the North Preempted Britain and France from Intervening for the South."

      Your tips are useful.

      These are all really great ideas. I like how you even used one of your own tips (as #1) when choosing a title for this particular hub. I will be using this Hub as a resource when I am having writer's block. Nice hub. Voting up!
