I seem to have a problem picking a good title for my hubpages, and i don't know how this could adversely affect my performance on here.
So, for example, i'm writing a hub now about whippet dogs, and their personality ect, so anyone considering buying one would have plenty of information about them. What would be a good title in this case do you think?
Are you supposed to use as your title, what you think a user might search for in google if they were thinking of buying a whippet.
Something to the effect of: "The Personality and Traits of Whippet Dogs; a Buying Guide"
I'm far from an expert on SEO, but I would think you could get hits from people looking specifically for the dog breed, dogs in general, and it seems that buying guides would be a term searched for often.
riotgrrrl use the KISS rule us old timers know that as "Keep It Simple Stupid" Write good hubs and title them by what they are about. Good content will attract people.
Thank you both for your kind replies :-)
I always find writing the title first a stumbeling block, i can't figure out how to word it, so it's concise, but also informative / explanatory. Thankyou for your suggestions. I shall get back to work!
Your title is the most important part of your article in terms of google search results. If you
just pick a title randomly, you will still be ranked in google, but unfortunately you will be ranked for a search term that nobody is looking for.

Yeah I agree. It sounds like you're going about it the hard way. Let your market tell you how they're searching for your information by using keyword terms that they are entering in the search engines. Studies show that over over 90% of people begin their search for information at the search engines. So it would be very wise NOT to ignore this fact.

A year or two ago, I posted a thread where I offered to give feedback on hubs and how to improve them. I then went on to write a post based on the most common mistakes I saw people making (you can read it on the slider...

While I opted out of the Hub Pro program, it would be irrelevant, anyway, since they are only focusing on already well-trafficked hubs.I could, however, use some advice on what I need to fix on this one, which has...

I wanted to share two trends I see in content that are very successful today. The first one is what I call the opposing argument to the search term. Google wants balanced search results. You will often see articles that...

I thought that the order of keywords in a Title did not matter and likewise that the order of keywords entered for a Google Search did not matter. However when you do a search for - Green Tea Health Benefits (A) - and...
