I may be late in catching on to this but I just claimed my first "exclusive title".
Can someone tell me more about it and why the title is more likely to be successful, with good written content to back it up of course!
I used to write for Demand Studios and we had to claim titles. I liked it but am glad that isn't the only way to write for HubPages.
You can learn more about it in the learning center http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Exclusives
Basically, an exclusive title is one that does not exist already on Hubpages. You claim the title and only you can publish under it. Once you claim it, you can not change the title like you can on regular hubs... If you're exclusive title is not performing for you then there are probably other factors within the body of the hub holding you back. The only way to remove the exclusive title is to delete the hub and start over with a new hub.
Even though the title does not exist here, that doesn't mean that it will perform well here. You still need to do some traffic and keyword research. Try using the auto-suggest feature on Google's SE or any of the SE's that have that feature. The suggested terms are those that are most often searched for so can possibly be of benefit if there is not too much competition.
livewithrichard - I'd like to thank you for the information on claiming exclusive titles. I just went to the link, read up on it and have now claimed 4 titles. This is great. Again, thanks so much!
Sinea - Thanks for posting this thread on exclusive titles. I read up on it using livewithrichard's link and found some great titles. If not for this thread, I might have missed this opportunity. BTW - I, too used to write for Demand
Livewithrichard, thanks so much for taking the time to explain it and share the link. I appreciate it so very much.
Vocalcoach, so glad you saw it, too. It will be exciting to see if traffic picks up with exclusive titles!
So... after reading the link that was provided... You don't receive any special payments for writing an exclusive right? It's just that it could receive higher traffic if you use tags and keywords right?
Is that correct?
These are high searched articles which can be easily ranked in search engines. HP does not have these articles so you can succed.
Anyway Congrats you are one of top Hubbers of our community.
Sorry to disappoint, but I would check the exclusives out well for 'competitiveness' using one of the many available tools. From my checks only about 1:10 or 1:20 are competitive - depends on the topic. Just my opinion of course!
I have an exclusive too, and I don't see that it brought any more traffic to my hub.

While entering "pant..." I got an interesting hub title suggestion:"Smart Ass Thong Panties for Moms Product Review"Sure is an interesting topic! I suppose it would be fun to write about, but it would probably get flagged.Has anyone else experimented with the topic/title...

So I have a hub with an exclusive title. The exclusive title is this: How Get Rid Of Cat Fleas and TicksFor some reason I didn't realize there was not a "to" in the title until after I published it. (My brain sometimes puts in the missing word when I'm proofing and tired.)Do you...

I've now written 52 Hubs but have less than 300 views from Google. I've read and taken the advice about titles, key words, niches, and high interest topics but am going nowhere fast. Is this the way it is or am I doing something horribly wrong? It seems like I'm missing a huge piece of the puzzle...

What is a EXCLUSIVE Title here on hubpages?I have seen this EXCLUSIVE thing on title choice when I go to make new hub a lot in the last few days, and was wanting to know what it was. When I click on the question mark it says the pages has been removed.

I don't understand the Exclusive Titles: I just checked a subject I am interested in. I get a title for a Hub that I have already written! I thought the idea was it was Exclusive. I'm very confused. Help.

For a long time it has puzzled me how one of my hubs keeps doing great, when it shouldn't. You see, I started a hub on one topic and then changed my mind in the middle of it.Now, back then I had no idea you couldn't change the URL later, so I was horrified when I was stuck with a URL that couldn't...
