Do you try to base your hub's titles around keywords, or leave those to the intro?
Ideally your keyword/keyphrase will be in your url, title, summary and intro - the url and title are most important places to have your keyphrase.
I write what I desire to write first, assign a title that I feel is suggestive and attractive, then I look through the piece and pick out the key words from the text...usually nouns and possibly some verbs. WB
I try to put keywords in any likely spot, especially the title. Looking at my analytics reports, most of the hits I get come from people searching phrases that are in my titles...some of this could be because not all of my summaries are up to specs yet, but I suspect it's also because Google likes to see an article with a title that matches a search query.
You need your Title, discription, tags, url all to have your keyword phrase in it. This is how you are ranked by Google, This is also the way people find you on Google when they are searching for something. People use a phrase or keywords to look for what they are interested in.
Most of my hub's titles are based on the keywords only, since it helps Google ranking as Bollinger mentioned here. Also my titles, tags, urls, etc. are mostly based on google search, because it helps most of the readers to locate the topic they wish to read easily, always. Thanks for your good question here to help others know more about it.

Do the titles of your article tell the reader what is in it, but do not encourage a reader to click to read more? In the past I have read that titles should be simple but it now appears that titles should tell the...

When you make titles do you consider drawing hits from Google, SEO, or just try to make it...interesting? I have tried both and it doesn't seem to make much difference.

It seems to me they are. You find out what's searched on the Internet and put it in the title of your article. But it seems to me, some of it is just logic; What will someone likely type into the search engine? No one...

To get recognized on Google, does it search your URL or Title or both? How does that work?
