As promised here in my first HubChallenge forum post, I'm going to be using the time that we have until the official start of the 30 Hubs in 30 Days HubChallenge (on this Friday, July 24th) to help all of you publish Hubs that have the most opportunity possible.
For this first day I decided to touch on one of the most important and foundational decisions that you make when writing on HubPages, coming up with a good Hub topic:
Linky >> HubPages Tips: How to find a FANTASTIC Hub topic
I'll be posting each of these daily (or more or less) tips on our blog, so be sure to keep an eye out for them as the HubChallenge gets closer.
Also, if you have any questions about this video, please post them in here and I'll answer you as soon as I can.
I may have missed it, but how do you enable the wonder wheel when you do Google search?
It took me a few minutes to find the wheel too, but alas, I did it. The SEO tool bar has got lots of icons...not appealing, but, like the outcome.
Thanks for the link to your article & these cool tools!
Thanks, Ryan. Ive been making my list, checking it twice... Gearing up for the big event, this information helps.
I actually prefer related searches to wonder whell. Provides the same info and it's less clunky.
Man did this give me some great idea where I can expand into multiple topics.
Learn something new everyday. I've never played with the wonder wheel either. Hubster is sitting here beside me, he doesn't care about the wonder wheel. Just wants to read his book.
The other day i stumbled on a page here at hubpages which had a list of potential hub topics that were in niche markets. I think it was in the FAQ somewhere - I've had a look but can't find it now
Ryan, what a great tutorial. Really gained a lot from the video. Nicely done.
At the risk of sounding obtuse, I need to download Firefox in order to utilize the PR tool, right? Have never used Firefox...
You'll love it and you can use it just for your SEO keyword work if you like and continue to use IE or whatever for the rest of your stuff if you DON'T like it (but I'm sure you will).
In my opinion Firefox is loads better but I know others prefer the other options, it's all just opinion.
This was very helpful.. Am looking forward to creating 30 hubs.. Have identified a main topic and would be working 30 hubs around that..Should be fun !
This is a lot of information. Thanks for helping us hobby-hubbers take it to the next level.
I'm sure these are great, but I always use real life events....my convicts and kids give me a lot of writing material!
I've been doing some investigative work and comparing the wonder wheel to individually researching key words. Wonder wheel shoots out a good number of .5 for me, not liking that. Would rather my related words have higher values. I really would LOVE to use the wonder wheel, granted. It takes MUCH less time than my extensive keyword research, but I'm just not sold on the results. Curious what other people think.
I got the SEO Information for Firefox. Interesting statistics when you do a Google search. Just make sure you have it turned off before coming back to HubPages
does it have any jucy crazy stuff that don't pertain to knitting and hanging drywall?
this is stupid..I couldn't find any wonder wheel despite the lovely directions. All it does is talk about how wonderful it is, not actually produce the goods...
I guess I'm not techno advanced then...I like my way better...different strokes, for different folks...
Type in 'wonder wheel' on a Google search. When the results come up, just above the results is the word "show options". Click on that. A menu will pop up down the left side. Next to the last is "wonder wheel". You're there. Ryan shows you pictures of everything I just said.
Awesome, will use the Wonder Wheel from now on, very good advice.
I thought it would be more fantastic than keywords about ferris wheels...I can't even ride those things without puking
Asher.....on the line above the pretty wonder wheel you finally found.....type in some other word. That's how you work the wonder wheel.
When you're on the page with the wheel up......the line where you put a search....type in a word.
Well, either you found it and you're having too much fun looking up words on the wonder wheel...or you've moved on to something else.
You're very welcome....glad I could help! Time for bed for the kiddo, huh? Probably just wanted to get dad's attention so he'll come read him/her a bedtime story.
On behalf of Ryan and his excellent screen shots explaining the wonder wheel......you're welcome SEO Expert Kerala.
I'm just a damn idiot...I am sure the instructions were fine....either way, convicts and kids are plenty "wheels" for me to write about any ole' day...
You're not an idiot AsherKade! Besides, I was glad I could help. Have you started the challenge or are you starting in less than an hour, or some other time?
AsherKade....wasn't that an old Tom T. Hall song? "Convicts, Kids, and Watermelong Wine?"
Just kidding....for those of not old enough to know the song...it's "Old Dogs, Children and Watermelong Wine". (Things he loves).
ive been using google for long time and i didnt try this button.
thank you very much, it is helpful
I need help with a category for my hub having to do with personalities. How you can make a change for the better is kind of what the subject is.
Do you need help finding yourself a title?
What is the Hub actually about? Your subject seems very broad right now, so you may need to tighten it up a bit if at all possible.
Sounds like she's wanting to know how to categorize it. If it's a self-help technique, it could be put under Knowledge & Education/Self Education and Knowledge/Tips and Advice.
you can look at this hub I did two years ago & maybe use some ideas
Scream tearing out my hair
could someone please tell me how to register for the hub challenge.
You actually don't need to register, just let us know that you're going to start the challenge here in this forum and then get to writing.

There seems to be a bit of confusion as to the most effective URL naming protocol and to make matters a little more complicated, I strongly belief that the hub claiming system that is in place is making things a little... messy,Lets look first at the most common methods of URL structure. Here we...

Hey y'all!Jason Menayan just published a GREAT blog post about his secret to finding high-traffic Hub topics: http://blog.hubpages.com/2011/02/high-traffic-topics/The gist is that he shies away from news, newsy titles, viral topics, review of low-cost products, and anything personal, and looks for...

I didn't really think that it was appropriate to create a video for this, but I did want to bring up something that's as important as anything else when it comes to writing a Hub (well, besides writing great content, of course) -- coming up with a great title. Out of all the things that can truly...

I found that one of my favourite keyword search tools, Google Wonder Wheel had disappeared from my search options. Apparently this is because Wonder Wheel does not work with Google Instant. In case anyone has had problems, the solution is to go to settings (at the top right of screen)...

I was looking through a few of the HubChallenge Hubs and I wanted to give you all a little advice on how to use the Google Keyword Tool to give your high-quality Hub it's highest traffic and earnings potential possible. I used a current HubChallenger's Hub as an example (Jane@CM I hope you don't...
