Both "Emerald City" and "Life in Emerald City" are permanently impossible keywords. If so inclined, plug them into Google. My hub can never compete against that onslaught.
The name is so perfect... But if the hub is never going to be seen...
Here's the hub, http://paradigmsearch.hubpages.com/hub/Emerald-City
I need a new name. One as perfect as "Emerald City".
I have really tried. But I have just flat out not been able to come up with a different name that still invokes the same feelings.
This thread is my last resort before hub deletion.
I have some different web pages on different sites that do okay with that key phrase but are not entirely dependent on it.
However, your page is a poem about the afterlife. Mine are all about the city of Seattle.
I would believe that between the real-life city and Wizard of Oz references, your Hub is not serving up what the majority of searchers using that phrase are seeking.
You need a title that indicates the content is a poem about the afterlife, not one which is heavily-associated with pop culture or travel.
OR... Leave the title and change the content to be a fictional account of living in the WOZ Emerald City. That would be truly unique....
Using your own words from your last comment, how about one of the following titles?
Life continues undimmed in the Emerald City
Hope does not dim in the afterlife.
No dead-ends and hope remains undimmed.
Sorry, I wasn't clear. What I meant was I need a name to replace the emerald-city-name used throughout the poem. As an example, replacing "Emerald City" with "Silverado" everywhere. Except "Silverado" doesn't work for me.
And, of course, the same new name would be used for part of the new title.
Find a synonym for "afterlife" that is less competitive but has some traction.
OK, I've come up with a new name. Personally, I hate it. But maybe I'll get lucky and be wrong. I'll have to work on the afterlife synonym. But it will be interesting to see how Google digests the new name in the time being.
I keep a handful of strange Hubs which I use for purely experimental purposes. I find the lab space worthy.
Thanks! It really will be interesting to see what happens when Google gets around to discovering it.
I write about the afterlife a lot, and like Ethereal. It's worth a shot. Good luck.
Sometimes I just want to bang my head against the wall.
It turns out that "Ethereal City" is a famous city in the very famous and well-known place known as Second Life.
I just can't win...
Or can I? It gets weirder...
I just now discovered all this because the hub has suddenly started getting traffic and I was trying to find out what was going on.
My hub is #3 on the front page of Google for "Life in Ethereal City". And that is without putting it in quotes.
Will this become the first CW hub to get regular organic traffic? Stay tuned...
I am seriously beginning to think that intelligence just does not work on the internet. The magic secret is to just keep throwing stuff against the wall until something sticks.
As people get older, they question religion and many come to Buddhism or a belief system that includes reincarnation. Or if they aren't older, they are jaded. How's it going?
I came up with my "We are all lab rats" theory around 3 years ago I believe. So far, it is standing the test of time just fine. In fact, the more evidence that piles in, the more the theory is reinforced.

Figured out why ghosts and spirits hold truths about the afterlife at 32?Really curious about this answer. I, too, have had the pleasure of seeing spirits/ghosts a couple of time. Both times were very peaceful. One was...

Is it a good idea to use multiple, similar keyword phrases in one hub?or is it better to just have one phrase?

I want to redo a hub with a different URL. I already know I need to delete the old one, wait for that one to disappear, then post the new one.My question is ... has anyone ever done this here, and did it benefit them?
