    Does more key words attract more visitors to a Hub?

    Well, first you have to have a title, so kw has nothing to do whether I read an article, etc or not.  I have read articles loaded with keywords, but gave zero valuable information.  Although they may be important, in some ways, if the content isn't there, why bother?

    Yes it does to a certain extent.  However there is a point at which you water down the text and this dilutes the effectiveness.

    Your keywords have to be strategically placed throughout the hub so that it flows naturally and the content still remains useful and interesting.

    Keywords will attract traffic from search engines because that's what people use to search fro your content.

    The beast way yo use your key words are 4 -5 word phrases. Make sure your title has your key phrase. Use another 4 or 5 similar key phrases through out the hub. Make sure your content flow naturally and not stuffed with too may keywords and phrases.

    Keywords used to be more important. What is happening now is Google is using something almost random to rank websites i.e. it is very difficult to know why a page from a site has a higher position. They are using cookies more than ever to see how popular a page is and so the "randomness" in ranking is effectual because humans can be random and they use this element in their google spyware (cookies) to throw off machines who try to see patterns in text, links etc

    An attractive title, intelligenlty placed keywords thorughout the body of the article are wonderful. But, still, what draws readers and keeps them coming back is really good matter. If a person has good articles, that are not boring, are useful or interesting, are well documented and well-researched, or show knowledge in a particular area of interst, or simply move the reader (if you are narrating personal experiences), you might not be that good at keywords and the rest of it, and still get the traffic you need. Ultimately, writing talent and enthusiasm for sharing cannot be manufactured by search engine optimization, it can be promoted by it, but not created by it. So, do your best, and then relax.

    I would say yes as long as the key words are really relevant to your hub. Other publishers are tricky using key words and it becomes somewhat frustrating for visitors to find out that the hub is not really significant with their searches.
