Hello everybody. I joined Hubpages around June and have written 37 articles since then. During the summer, I was very active here, and that is the time where I did my writing. However, I haven't really been here since the end of August. I would check my account every so often just to check the views. I have been averaging at about 500 views a month. All of my articles are featured and 5 are editors choice hubs.
Anyway, my question is, based on what I have achieved so far, how should I proceed? I have recently edited my Facebook page and Hubpages profile to make things fresh. I have also read many articles on SEO optimization and writing good content, but I was wondering if one or two people could help me out by looking at what I have built so far and by giving me advice based on that.
I looked at your Profile and I think you need to do better keyword research using Google's AdWords Keyword Planner. Use the ideas there to create better titles and Description Tags. The Description Tag is called 'the summary' on HubPages and it is what shows on your Profile for each Hub and what Google picks up as the Snippet. These Description Tags need to be almost exactly (but no more than) 160 characters including spaces and correctly describe the content of your Hubs, using quality keywords with high traffic and low competition. Competition means the number of competing webpages on search results, not the advertisers on AdWords.
Nice to see you back, Ben!
Writer Fox has some good advice to follow. Also, keep writing more hubs! You can only increase your views and earnings by writing more hubs. Make sure to create high-quality hubs as quality will always rank over quantity.
Best of luck with your endeavours here on HP.
I recommend Greekgeek's Hubs for advice on writing. She doesn't trumpet her knowledge, she's just quietly making money!
Ok, guys. Thanks for the suggestions. Can someone point me to a good hub or article about using Google's Keyword Planner?
These first two seem to be about AdWords:
1) https://adwords.google.com/ko/KeywordPl … cache=true
2) http://www.wordstream.com/blog/ws/2013/ … rd-planner
This last one, Google Trends, may be more to your liking. I use it and there is a Hub about it written by Sue Adams.
I put in all three links because I was unsure which one that you meant.

For a long time it has puzzled me how one of my hubs keeps doing great, when it shouldn't. You see, I started a hub on one topic and then changed my mind in the middle of it.Now, back then I had no idea you couldn't change the URL later, so I was horrified when I was stuck with a URL that couldn't...

I just updated my HubPages profile a couple days ago and in my profile linked to some of my favorite hub topics that I wrote about. Is this bad to do this since on the profile page we have those same hubs randomly come up below? I just don't want overkill but like the thought that I've got my...

Trying out the Hub Hopper I noticed there is a queue distinguishing typical hubs from a creative work or humor. Since HP apparently values them differently would having a separate HP account for typical hubs that are not creative writing and one for creative writing offer any advantages?Also, what...

Hi,Hi,I keep getting the message that my hubs could be featured, but no matter how often I change them, they never are. I keep getting told that they may contain "spammy elements" but I'm not sure what these might be. Many of my hubs were previously published in my local newspaper, the...

Recently, I've been trying to diversify how I drive traffic to my hubs; I think a healthy link profile and different kinds of promotion are a great idea as so that we're not *just* reliant on search engines, other hubbers or social media to entice visitors.One of the best ways I have found to do...
