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.
Try signing up for a Google Adwords account and use their free keyword research tool.
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. Google Adwords keywords is one good keyword tool and there's also more... Learn all about the world of keywords here: http://hubpages.com/hub/keywords-defini … t-keywords

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 on my profile.)This time, I'm going to offer title suggestions. Post ONE title...

I now have 11 hubs that are not indexed by google - nothing published since July 12 (the last one was published on the 9th and indexed yesterday). Normally I've seen then set up with 24 hours, occasionally in 48, but now it's 8 days and not done!!??

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 fallen into the "unfeatured for lack of traffic" hole.I thought it would be...

Following my investigation into good SEO practice, I decided to write the title of my hubs as the first words in the hub summaries. So the summary would start with the title, followed by a hyphen (dash) and a brief description. I do this on almost all of my hubs, but I don't like doing it because...

I love to see what people were looking for when they found my hubs, it helps me choosing new titles and see which questions I left unanswered.I was hoping to see keywords under Traffic Sources, but I have to click on each hub and then stats, and then keywords.... quite a long process to check them...
