Why are the keywords 'songwriter' and 'songwriting' not featured on my list of keywords in Google Webmaster Tools ? 'Guitar' is my top keyword, but I also have a few songwriting hubs and found it strange that these terms aren't even on the list...
In one of my Hubs, http://adamharkus.hubpages.com/hub/Song … -Beginners is mentioned 20 times (mostly in the sub-headers though). It just seems strange that 'Songwriting' isn't even picked up when other terms are.
Does that Hub get good traffic? I ask, because using the same keyword in every title and sub-title is keyword stuffing, and Google would usually penalise that.
You may have been advised to do that - it was once recommended for SEO, but Google soon woke up to it, and it's now counter-productive.
Ah, thank you that's great advice. It's actually been my best performing hub this week, but maybe that's down to referral traffic, not organic.
I'll put an end to spamming keywords in the sub-headers and add more in the text in future.
Does anyone have any other angles on this?
Maybe you do not feature in search for those terms because of the competition that there is for those terms elsewhere on the net...
search for those terms and see what the search turns up, if it is well established websites, well known colleges, the BBC, and others then maybe they will always get the searches..

I had a hub that was receiving around 1,300-1,500 views per day. It was chosen as Editor's Choice. It then dropped by about 1,000 views per day. I opted out of the program, but that hub is no longer showing in Google for the keywords that brought it all the traffic before EC messed it up. How can I...

When I first signed up with GA I used hubpages.com Later I added my subdomain address. However, my account is set up with property name hubpages.com and default URL my subdomain. I believe this is incorrect. Thus Webmaster Tools are saying that my sites are not verified. What do I need to do?...

I just started with Google's Webmaster tools for Hubpages. All my published pages are indexed. I have a question about the content keywords table. The first keyword is listed as "ago" with 29XX occurrences.I imagine 'ago' is so frequent because of the comment session that says. 3(XX)...

This is just one example of many errors showing up in Google webmaster tools that appear to have category information added into the url of my hub creating a link to a non-existent hub. In the link below, "/family-and-parenting/kids/" is the part that I think may be creating the...
