On several hubs I travel through and read I am coming across a trend that I want advice on please.
On some hubs people put a bullet ed list of search terms. My guess is to attract Google and bing programs to that hub in as many ways as they can.
My question for the audience is this, Is that a technique that actually works?
Please only give advice if you have tried it and it did well.
Its a good way to stuff in some extra keywords, just the way that Google does not want you to...
How does a list of keywords / search terms help the reader? It doesn't therefore be very very careful as it could be something that would be frowned on, if not today - tomorrow.......
How would you tell if it was specifically "keywords," or simply a bulleted list of items/points relevant to the article, but broken up out of solid blocks of text? (Something HP itself advises you to do--i.e., use bulleted lists; more capsules; polls, etc...)
I thought that too. I had to make the thread to get the full story. My mother always told me dont assume your probably going to get it wrong. So Thank you both for your help on this.
I have seen this, also. An article contains what looks to be a separate text box which is titled "search-friendly subtitles." Then under that heading is a bulleted list of alternate titles or questions which a Google-user might type into the search box. If the article is titled "What should I feed my dog," then the bulled list contains what could be considered alternate titles, such as "what do dogs eat," "what to feed a dog." "dog food ideas," "canine nutritional requirements," etc. It adds nothing to the article other than keyword phrases, and even seems to be advertising that fact.
Seems like the turks wouldn't like it any more than G would.

This is going to seem like an ignorant question, but how do you get search terms for your hub?Should I just add a bunch of tags, everything that I can think of?

What's the creepiest keyword you've seen bringing people to your hubs.I just had "cancer patients with tramp stamps nude" and it creeped me out.

17 Hubs published and I get about one view per day between all of them? I realize it takes a while to establish yourself but is that normal? Does it pick up over time? All my articles are well...
