If you get a decent amount of traffic and your article has been online for years, do you think it would hurt your traffic to change the title? I mean would google be confused? I want to change the title of this hub:
http://brie-hoffman.hubpages.com/hub/Ho … f-the-Grid
to a more SEO keyword friendly title of
Off-Grid Small Business Ideas
Feel free to comment on the title and suggest a better one if you can think of one.
I'm all for updating content. That is one of the best things people can do to increase traffic. That said, it's a good idea to be careful with titles. If I wanted to change the title of a page that was getting significant traffic, I'd want to be sure I'm not removing the words in the title that are driving the traffic.
To figure out what words are driving traffic, the best way to do this today is to look in your google webmaster tools account. They will show you the search terms. If the terms that are driving traffic to your site are in your current title, I suggest leaving them as is.
Thanks. It's amazing what you can learn even after 3 years!
Oh..I forgot about that..thanks I'll take a look
