Someone mentioned that we ought to link our hubs to search engines like yahoo, msn, feedvalidater - do you know an article that addresses how to do this?
Yes, you should get links to your hubs from blogs for instance. See: http://www.squidoo.com/seo-squidoo for details.
You let the search engines find you, you do not need to submit your hub to them.
Backlinking and keyword targeting is what you are looking for. On each of your hub pages you should be focusing on about 3-5 keywords those keywords should be of value but without have a high competition. There is about a hours worth of work to do to find these keywords but once found you are going to want to backlink to your hub page for those keywords. You can easily find your hub page ranked #1 on google, yahoo and other search engines with this tatic and best of all it only takes a few days to 2 weeks in order to claim that spot. Once again depending on competition.

When I read tutorials my head spins. So please give me an example using my topic: a recipe for baked salmon. If the title is "How to make Herb-crusted baked salmon", and I use the phrases "salmon fillet" "fish" throughout the hub, that's not optimizing right? Examples...

I've been working on creating outbound links for some of my hubs in my second week here at HP. I know the basics of SEO and I know why this is important. I thought it might be nice to share some tips for making the outbound links work for us. I don't think I personally have enough information here...
