I have only used exclusive titles a few times and those hubs don't really do well. I am curious if anyone else sees success from exclusive hubs. The titles that come up don't even seen to have good keywords in them...
I believe your experience is similar to that of most other people.
Initially, I reserved a couple of such titles for myself, which fitted into my scope of interest. After checking out the value of the keywords and the competition they had, I decided there was no point wasting time in writing those hubs.
It would be good if HP just admitted this was a mistake and moved on, or even just drop the program without admitting anything. I wrote one exclusive, one of my worst performing hubs. It was recently zzz'd. The only thing i could do was put some more keywords in text (generally not a good idea). You cn't touch the title because it's "exclusive." A dumb program.
I would suggest not bothering with them. they are not good titles, they are not exclusive and you can't change them=a lose/lose/lose situation. I deleted mine.
Having the fun ability to see a listing of all Exclusive Hubs and their performance, I can say there's a wide range in performance, and it often comes down to the quality of the Hub one writes. Exclusives don't guarantee traffic- they're simply titles that we see to be promising that don't already exist on our site.
That said, nothing beats doing thorough keyword research on one's own!

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...

Have exclusive titles you've written frequently gone idle?I took a stab at several of HubPages exclusive titles and I've found them to be the poorest performing of all my hubs. I find that quite disappointing because I was led to believe they were titles that would get traffic. The only...
