The title tuner was a bit of a baby of mine. There was a really high correlation with improving rankings by adding keywords and refining titles of Hubs for a long time. The tools purpose was to make it easy to tweak titles based on data. I called this inline analytics. Putting the data where you did the work.
Unfortunately, the data that made this tool useful has gone away. Google first announced that only a small number of queries would lose data in 2011. http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/10/ … ecure.html But, now it's expected to be at 100% (most of it is gone already) so we no longer have sufficient data to support the tool.
With that, we will be removing the title tuner today, but stay tuned, lots of new stuff is coming out soon. Mobile, Mobile....
I will miss that tool. I have seen great results after using it especially when I was a newbie to SEO. It was a good feature.

update. this is fun figuring out formatting.
I am serious, formatting aside... To Be Politely... You are dead wrong.
No biggie to me on Title Tuner leaving, but Paul, could we please have suggested Titles back?
When you get in these blocked frames, they sure helped.
RANT! Do not what else to say.
Critter helped me no end. I thought.
Oh, well. Again.
I can not imagine how wrong it would be to discontinue TT.
You concern me.
I remember your Pinterest attempt. I remember it all. Keep your writer's assistant. You may not how much it counts? Keep this one. Don't have to expand. Just maintain. Just a thought.
You're not reading Paul's post properly. I'm sure HubPages would love to maintain the Title Tuner but it's not working properly any more. There's no point in continuing to offer something that's broken, is there?
The Google search you're referring to is different from the system used to power the Title Tuner.
What you are doing right now is called bumping and a moderator is going to end up stopping you from doing this. You can not bump a forum thread up constantly to get attention.
I am just happy to see traffic coming back to normal and HP ads delivering worthwhile money again.
Of course, more and better never goes amiss....
I know what you mean. The traffic has picked up a bit. When I first got here 6 months ago it was all doom and gloom. People seem positive again.
Yes - I'm seeing that too. Happy days are here again!
I'm glad to see it gone for two reasons:
1. Yes it was a brilliant feature at one time. However when 90% of my traffic says "Unknown search term", that means I only get information on 10% of visitors, or less. And that will slowly decrease even more as Google spreads its tentacles.
2. Because of the above, the Title Tuner will only have a few phrases to work with. This will most likely NOT be indicative on words people are using to get to your hubs. It's like cutting 90% of the pages out of a medical textbook then expecting people to qualify as a medical professional based on the 10% left. Not going to be very accurate!
It is good to read 'lots of new stuff coming out soon'. Any helpful innovations to increase traffic and earnings will be greatly appreciated.
I never found the Title Tuner particularly useful anyway, so no big whoop for me...
I never really liked the Title Tuner, no offense. It always gave me strange results that would have made no sense. It sometimes picked a random word that showed up in the Hub a few times, that never would have worked anywhere in the title. It did help a few times, but that's about it.
I am calmer now...
The title tuner was like rock hounding. True, many suggestions were worthless rocks. But every time I sporadically used it, I'd always find at least one gem. And sometimes the gem wasn't even what the TT actually said; but it triggered new thoughts that were worthwhile. Even if the thing was responsible for only 2% of additional traffic, it was worth it. Money is money and all that. Oh, well... Moving on.
And by the way, google does indeed report keywords many times when we look under Search. I have just this minute witnessed this with my very own beady little eyes.
use can always use google correlate, trending topics and just begin typing ur title in google search bar (with search suggestions set to on and in the incognito mode so ur personal history will not effect the suggested results) so type title and a list of related or similar matches will display and change as u type. 8-) ps these 'suggestions' are calculated by google through current users search terms.... I apologize if this is an obvious course of action just wanted to say something 8-) happy hubbing ty
If you're really interested you could always use webmaster tools to look at individual hubs and see the keywords that brought in traffic over a period of time and probably incorporate those in your title if you want to. That's basically what the title suggestion tool did. As far as I know, webmaster tools would still show the keywords & stuff right? I've not read the latest release from Google, so correct me if I'm wrong.
