Can you incorporate key words and key phrases into your hubs??? Are these different then tags?
on the top of the individual hub is a tab for stats. Within that stats tab is a tab for keywords. Mine always says none detected. Can we incorporate keywords and phrases into our hubs to improve SEO rankings?
Hello davenmidtown. Yes keywords and tags are the same thing, just one extra piece of jargon to learn.
You can incorporate keywords and key phrases into your hubs, be very careful though, you are a good writer so can probably do it easier than most.
Too many people load or stuff their hubs to draw the traffic but lose the reader because the result is incomprehensible. I'd say stick to at most three key words or phrases used sparingly in a good content post. It is like when you watch the ads on TV you will usually hear and see the product named three or five times in thirty seconds. The brain hooks the three or five time repetition more than that becomes irritating.
As humans design the search engines we program to our own patterns.
With regard to the keyword tab, it takes a while to mature, if you go back to an old hub after three months or so it does start to give updated search results using Googles daily searches over the last thirty days. So you can pick up some tips as to new keywords then. Handy if you are writing a hub on a similar subject.
Hope this helps.
Thank you Bretsuki for this answer! Interesting.... I went and looked at older hubs and there was data listed under keywords.... I typically just write a hub and do not worry about the rest of it... key words, SEO, etc. Now I have to wonder if I need to put more thought into what I write or rather how I write it. Maybe design the hub around one keyword phrase and perhaps a second and or third LSI key word.... hmmmm

Go to stats for your individual hubs and look for any that have 'frequently searched keywords that aren't in the title. Now ADD them to the title. I did this with the 10 or so hubs I could do it for and still I'm...

I've seen people saying that they are writing longer hubs and getting more traffic. I've always heard at least 300 words up to 800 or so. Have you found an optimal number to shoot for?
