We all know that titles are what grabs the attention of readers for authors of all types of media. What are the titles you've had the most success with and what formulas have you used.
My best are:
6 Techniques to Get More Readers to Your Hub Now
Article Soup- Ingredients for Making Money
The Best Approach to Gaining Muscle Mass Fast- Using Protein Diet Supplements
<no links please!>
One thing I'll not do is make a mention of money in the title. It's sooo cheap a strategy.
I don't answer these sorts of questions, as I'd prefer to not have my best Hubs ripped-off by unethical web page builders.
But HubPages has its own "Best Hubs" and "Hot Hubs" indicator. Don't they somehow give your hubs away?
The ones that attract the most readers are those that do well in the SERPs. And those tend to be ones with the keywords early in the title, followed by something readable that someone would click on. Something like:
Blue Widgets - Tips to Help Keep Your Widgets Blue
For me I just play with words or think of what I am writing and a title pops in my head. Granted they aren't too popular but that's okay with me. I know my titles are fun and sometiems clever. lol
My current highest traffic hub is "Season 6 Medium TV Allison DuBois Smash NBC / CBS Show". This was really just a joke based on watching lots of my daughter's Medium episodes. Because season 6 is about to begin in the US, lots of fans are finding my hub. It was never intended to 'earn' and doesn't have significant keywords but generates lots of lowish value, TV-related clicks.
Often Hubs I really enjoy writing do surprisingly well in terms of traffic even though they aren't SEOed!
The hubs I've written that are getting the best traffic are ones from the ideabank here at HP.
Susana - good point. I recently tried the ideas bank and wrote about a topic I knew about but thought was of no interest - however traffic has been surprisingly good.

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...

Hi!I am new to HubPages and need HELP! I joined a couple of days ago and have only been able to publish one article. I am unclear as to how postings work. I was under the impression that once I chose a title for my hub, I could just continue to add new topics. I want my Hub...

I've now written 52 Hubs but have less than 300 views from Google. I've read and taken the advice about titles, key words, niches, and high interest topics but am going nowhere fast. Is this the way it is or am I doing something horribly wrong? It seems like I'm missing a huge piece of the puzzle...

I am kind of tired of this whole traffic thing. Everyone else claims great success, and I can't get a view. I have only 2 views today, and 23 views for the whole week.I have tried everything to get traffic, and nothing is working for me. I even joined several social sites, and my traffic has only...

I saw a dramatic traffic drop today and went to notice that over 100 of my hubs are not featured. While I can understand some of my older ones published over 4 years ago were not that great, some of them were published just months ago and are engaging, have beautiful pictures and very few links....
