    I have an article that I think is pretty good but it doesn't get enough traffic.  I'm hoping that some of you can help me with the title.

    Any ideas will be appreciated:

    Save Money using the Sun: How to use the Sun to Survive Off the Grid or in a Collapse

    That is the current title..any ideas to make it more marketable?

      Solar Power Makes Economic Sense, perhaps? or maybe Solar Sense Makes Money Sense...just off the top of my head! Or even Stack up Savings with Solar Energy..

    Gotta scatter the phrases, "solar power" and "solar energy", around in there; both title and content. As for using the word, "solar", twice in the title... Maybe, maybe not. big_smile smile

      Yep..you are right on!  I just did a key word search..so I changed the title to "9 Ways to Save Money using Solar Power".  That should do it, I hope.

    Create a made for Pinterest image and I'll pin it for you smile

      Let me think about what I want to do.

        Lists do really well on Pinterest! I can see that 20 things about New York and 9 ways to beat the new world order as good examples... do up an image for them and I'll pin them too!

          Brie Hoffmanposted 4 years agoin reply to this

          What do you mean do up an image for them?  Do you mean take a picture?

          1. WryLilt profile image90
            WryLiltposted 4 years agoin reply to this

            No, I mean use an image at the top right of the hub which will encourage people to pin and repin it. I usually use free use images. I have hubs on finding free use images and making MFPs.

            Here is an example of an MFP image I have with somewhere around 100,000 pins.

              Is this using picmonkey because I tried to download that and couldn't for some reason.

              1. WryLilt profile image90
                WryLiltposted 4 years agoin reply to this

                Yes, that was made in Picmonkey. Picmonkey does not need any downloads, it works in your browser.

                  Hmm, I'll have to look for it again.  I tried what I thought was a download and it messed up my computer.

                    WryLiltposted 4 years agoin reply to this

                    http://www.picmonkey.com/

                    There should be no downloads at all.

    "How To Revert To Solar Power In Case Of An EMP Attack" would gain some interest.

    You can Google EMP attack to get the gist of what and why this is a popular subject now and for the past year or so.

      I know what an EMP attack is, thanks for the suggestion.

        What about keeping your original title, but deleting the words "use the sun to"? Then it would read: Save Money using the Sun: How to Survive Off the Grid or in a Collapse

          Since changing it to the above mentioned title it now has two arrows straight up!!!!

          Where can I find free pictures?

            I have a recent hub about that too smile

              I'd recommend using more "matching" colours on your MFPs. You need the text to work with the picture, not try and compete.

                Also - put the title of your hub in the description so it gets included in the pin!
