Why don't Hubpages editors focus on searchable titles?

    I've read time and time again how crucial it is to have a searchable title. Like many other writers, I've changed my titles quite a few times but haven't found success. Why don't the editors focus more on titles when they're reading hubs for niche sites?  I've only had one title changed among many.

      This is a good point raised. You mean that our editors suggest good titles or even change them from their end.

      I have always struggled with titles, but after Robin pointed me to this website,

      I've been doing better with them.  I used to write first and title last, but now I do the opposite by using the info this site gives me.  It's free and helps quite a bit.  Sometimes the simplest change really makes a difference in view.  Give it a try.  You can play with it all you want and eventually you generally come up with a decent searchable title.

        WOW  TT2, that's a very nice help to find better titles. I've already changed a few of my hub titles which showed a  low 30/40% to 70/80%
        Thanks for sharing the link. Now I'll just sit and wait till the views go up smile

    I've had some titles changed around for niche inclusion, I suspect for those reasons.

    How about, we ask the editors to write the hub for us? Bet you hadn't thought of that?

    Sorry smile
