Now that the title tuner has been out for a bit, what are people's thoughts on it?
I've made some suggested tweeks, and it seems to have worked a little, but it hasn't really been a game-changer. I'll go back to it every few weeks to see what I can change.
I would have to agree with I am DB Cooper, it hasn't really been a real game changer and in addition I feel like the should be more focus on creating the title tuner for all the titles that are created in the account of a hubpage user instead of only tuning the titles of pages that get a particular amount of traffic
I like the format of it, and have taken quite a few of the suggestions and it makes for less research I have to do off-site. That said, it's only been a couple of weeks for some of the titles I changed, and about a week for most of them, so it's really too soon to tell if it'll make any real difference. There seems to be a very slight increase in traffic, but that could very well be the buildup toward holiday traffic. I'm guessing I probably won't know until things die back down after Christmas just how much difference might be because of title changes.
I think it's a good thing: it will help people with what used to be THE Most Important Thing they could do for their hub to get it noticed by search engines.
However, almost simultaneous with hubpages launching this, Google has been making titles less important.
Don't let that stop you: titles are still important. They're HUGELY important, just not as important as they were a year ago.

When I first started writing at HubPages I was under the impression that one should make the url and the first title of their hub the same.So my question now is: When trying to write the url for maximum traffic, how much should you really deviate on the main title? Or does it even matter if the key...

My most recent hub was Snipped and given a new short title by staff which does not properly reflect the contents of the hub. Views have been negatively impacted and have not picked up after the change. I want to change the title back to what it was. I wrote to staff...

The first occurred on 4/19. That hub's traffic has already started its crash and burn.The second occurred on 4/21. I'm reasonably certain the traffic crash and burn is starting there as well.I'll give it a week. If things aren't back to normal by then, I'm putting the keywords back. Better to have...
