    Trying to improve some hubs I went to "Title Tuner" and I asked myself is it trustful? I took a picture to the suggested words from Title Tuner.

    Isn't the use of vulgar words in HP disallowed? Read following screen shot:

    Is HubPages "Title Tuner" trustful?

      The title tuner is based on words that searchers have typed in to the search engines when they came across your Hub,....jimmy

      It is not always meant for you to definitely use a word, or words. It is up to you to decide whether one (or more) suits your title/Hub.

        Thanks! Ok now I understand that it is all about wires and machines, not about moral.
        Probably what I think as "bad" word is culturally "good" to others.
        I get it... I think.

      Unfortunately, the title tuner has less utility now than in the past due to Google no longer providing keyword data for search referrers ( … ure-Search).  This data is what is used for the Title Tuner.  The tuner still may be of use for the smaller subset of Hubs that get a substantial amount of traffic from Bing or Yahoo.

      I agree with @Frogg213 that it doesn't make much sense in the context as it makes it seem like this is a recommended word to add to your title.

        Thanks!!! I wrote this here just because HP has clear instructions at the beginning of a hub, about the use of vulgar words.

      It is a completely automatic tool that tells you what people who came to your hub from a search engine were searching for.

      So no you don't just "trust" is and use all the words.  You just treat it as a source of information.

      I do not support a black list as almost every rude word has a genuine use as well, albeit often an obscure one.  And also, if I have accidentally used content that searches as 'porny' I would want to know about it.

    I believe Hubpages needs a "blacklist". These vulgarities would never be allowed in the Title, so as they arrive, they should be blacklisted and not allowed to appear.
