I googled to see if others had copied mine or something and when I google "Please Don't Call Me Ma'am", to check on my poem, I was shocked to see how many other articles there are out there about this very subject. Just sayin' LOL
Did you Google that before you wrote the poem? That's always worth doing.
No, I didn't google it and I really don't know what the keyword tool is but still I'm glad I wrote it and that I wasn't discouraged by what's already out there because I think it turned out great just the way it is...the thing that amazed me about seeing that there were so many others that had written on the subject was that so many other people had strong enough feelings about the subject to write about it. I was a little worried when I put my poem out there that maybe nobody would "get it". What I'm finding out is that most women tend to get it and most men don't.
A perfect example of why the use of the keyword tool is so important before ever setting pen to paper (so to speak).
Marissa and Wilderness, I appreciate your response. I was just checking on this and I thought that my response to your suggestions may have come across as being ungrateful but I am grateful for your responses, I think I wasn't clear in my statement so you helped me the best you could. On another point, I have tried researching subjects before I put my input into them and I get overwhelmed. I have found that it's best for me to write what I feel and then research what others have written to substantiate or conflict what I write. Thanks for your comments.

I googled one of my hubs and it came up on the second page of searches. However....There is an icon next to my hub in the Google search that says this website has a bad reputation. Is this making all of our hubs look bad when someone searches our topic? Will it decrease traffic?

I've read a lot about the importance of doing keyword research, but then you also get the impression that to really do that research properly can take a long time unless you get lucky early on or really know what you are doing. So I wonder, with some people pumping out huge amounts of hubs, are...

This is sad. I googled "google algorithm destroying writers" and this was the second link: http://knol.google.com/k/knol-top-autho … nd-badges#

I did a little experiment with opting into the EC program for three months. To begin with,last year one of my better performing hubs become Editor's Choice. That hub was getting an average of 20o+ views per day, peak. The day after being selected as EC, the views dropped to zero. I watched it for a...

I joined HubPages about 1 year ago and I have only written 13 hubs. Out of these 13 only 2 hubs are getting good traffic. That's why I deleted 11 hubs and left these 2 hubs on here. I'm not sure if I should go on with writing here. I think I would still keep my account because I like the HubPages...

I am major curious about the answer to this mystery.... just how much traffic are those Hubs who make it to the HOT HUBS actually receiving? I know that most likely nobody is going to give this up with specific numbers.... but how about some averages as to what kind of traffic brings a...
