      Hi Biochemi..

      I have not read any of your work but I did look at the titles...

      You have to remember that getting traffic relies on someone actually searching for the subject of your hubs.
      As you can imagine there are quite a few people searching for "how to lose weight" or "how to make more money" or even "car insurance".

      But you may also be able to figure out how many people are searching for "Analytical Methods Used to Study the Steady-State of Enzymes"

      To get traffic there has to be someone searching for the subject of your hub....... Now maybe I am wrong and there are lots of organic chemistry geeks out there who like nothing better to cruise the internet looking for articles but I think the numbers are going to be a little low..

      Go to the learning center (Top right "help") and you will find lots of information there that will help you..

        Use Google Adwords to find keywords related to your topic, and select keywords with lesser competition (<0.35) with 1000 - 8000 monthly searches--higher than that and you'll find it difficult to rank in search engines.
        The topics like: losing wight, making money, and car insurance have a LOT of competition, and unless you are a SEO expert, don't bother writing those--you can still use long tail keywords, but it's unlikely that you'll find one worth competing.

        As Leanman said, go to the learning center - http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents

          Everyone confuses competition on the adwords tool!!!

          competition on the adwords tool is for advertisers competition for using those keywords not for the competition to get to the top of search engine results.

          So a high competition rating means that there are lots of advertisers wanting to bid on those keywords to place their adverts. Which is a good thing as you should get a good payment if someone clicks an ad on your page! High is good - not low!!!!

          The only way to assess if a keyword has "low competition" in the serps  is to do the search and look at the results or invest in some software such as market samurai that does it for you.

          High competition in the search engines will make it very difficult to rank - so for "car insurance" you will see all of the big companies taking the top results and you will never muscle them out of the way with a hub!

          However for "1961 Ferrari 250GT Spyder Insurance" there will be less competition (if any) but no one looking for it. The trick is to find those items in between that people are looking for but have little competition..

            Leanman is right. The content creator need only concern themselves with the global monthly searches for a specific keyword. You don't need to worry about competition, plus Goggle has changed the Keyword Tool to Keyword planner where the advertisers keywords are separated from the content creator keywords.

            There are two basic things to keep in mind when creating keyword rich titles and that is to find the right keyword to fit your content and to figure out if that keyword has a gazzillion things already written about it.

            After finding your keyword you need to create a short title and search it in Google. See how many search results come up for your keywords. Less search results will mean more traffic to you. Less than a million search results is good.

    I'm back! I decided to take a look at some of your hubs and here is the first hub I have seen. "Glycogen Synthesis and its Breakdown are Extremely Regulated"

    1. You have good keyword "glycogen synthesis" which sees 1,600 global monthly searches, with 752,000 search results which means this is great for you.

    2. Your title needs to be fixed. You don;t need all that information in the title. Tighten it up a bit with less words. Ideally it should read "Glycogen Synthesis Breakdown and Regulation"

    3. Cap the first letters for each word in your title.

    I will try reading another later and let you know how to improve. Good luck.
