A while back I got bored of Hubpages because after doing keyword research, a lot of research for a topic I didn´t really cared about and putting it all together (it took almost half a day) the articles turned out to be flukes :( Then I wrote just for passion, local topics I knew about without having to do any research, personal opinions mostly. My number one hub is a Colombiafilm review I made easily, My second one is keyword research hub about Canada Goose jackets. So both methods tend to work, but working on a topic you master is probably 5 times easier to write about.

I think you nailed it. Write about what you know and then optimize it as best possible.
I agree. I write about industrial sites and company theories! lol Not many people are shopping 4 that, but I still enjoy writing them. If I relied on this site for my main income, I might make some compromises, but 4 now I don't have 2 do that.
Trying to follow the keyword research thing I came along the Atltanta City Pass. It had great traffic and few competitors, I made a long article with 3 days to make.. and it has been a great fluke. Since then I no longer take extra efforts to hub
"His articles are written with passion and interest but there does not seem to be enough searches in most of his subjects."
Sad but true..., but I'm OK with that. I figure if I posted them on a blog of my own, they'd just be ignored there too. :D
Good point. That´s another problem with me though, I don´t stick to a single topic, I write about many different stuff
Good luc to you Linda. I say the best thing to do is have fun writting. Optimize if you like, but Google does a job sending the traffic that needs to find you.
The most ugly part of SEO is doing Keyword research. It takes time and even if the title is exactly the keyword phrase people are looking for, Google will still show on the top spots webpages with better rank but not with optimized title.
