What comes first when you are creating a new hub - the idea or the keywords?
I have to say it is the idea for a hub. From there you create and add concepts and ideas and generate your keywords from there.
Everything starts with an idea of course. But before the writing you should research the keywords.
Definitely the idea, and then I use facets of that idea to search out potential keywords for the completed article.
I start with the idea. I just write about what I know or what I think will be useful to others. I've got a lot to learn about keywords and driving traffic, which explains why my view count is so low!
For me, the idea comes first. But I am new at this, so perhaps the keywords should come first? I'm not sure. However, personally, I feel that the new hub helps me create the keywords. Even when I enter the keywords first, then write the hub, I always find myself going back to the keyword category and adding to it.
Thank you everyone for your responses! I think it probably depends on the situation - it's a chicken or egg thing. But both ways probably work well. Thankyou!
The idea usually comes to me first. I then put in a few keywords associated with that idea, and refine those and add to them after I finish the hub.

For this week's HubMob, I have decided to cover a topic that is truly close to many people's hearts - their pets. I have never really been a pet owner, but as I meet more and more people I realize the huge role that they play in the lives of others around me. So, this HubMob is basically a way for...

I have two hubs up so far. I am not entirely sure what a great ranking would be considering that they are quite new, but they are both above 60. Is this pretty good for newly established hubs? I would appreciate any feedback on my work and what can be done to improve for the future, as well as...

If you make a spelling error in your title on the Create a Hub page, and you don't realize it untilyou get to the capsule page, but before you publish, is it better to scratch that hub and redo it fresh? The error stays on the URL link although not on the hub title.
