    Actually I rarely search for keywords but write what I feel.  I guess that's why I don't make a lot of money!!!

    Absolutely!  After choosing a topic to write about it is necessary to find what people are typing into google as a search term to find that topic.

    Maybe I'm weird or something, but my own guess of what terms people use to search with is seldom in line with what they actually use.  Without knowing what terms are being used, you will never see much traffic.

    I have just recently started using the google adword keyword tool to see what phrases, titles that are used. I try to look for a title or phrase that is highly searched with low competition. I am still learning, but hope to improve all my hubs eventually.

    I rarely research keywords myself. I don't worry about that much anymore. However, once I have written a hub or website page, I decide what the best keyword is and modify my seo for that page to exploit the keywords for that page.

    Nope, I never research for keywords, and simply choose words that match my titles main theme or subject, but I do select many of the suggested ones that hubpages provides while starting up a new hub.
    Maybe I might start doing so after I reach about 100 hubs or so. I feel, I need more experience as a hub writer overall, before I can expect massive web traffic to start poring in towards my hubs directions & plus I want to perfect my hubs a bit more as well.
    You can always go back to add more or remove those keywords that you feel aren't playing an enough significant role too.

    Yes I always do. I enjoy writing but I like to double the results of my work so I enjoy as I make money. If I don't research keywords meaning it is a gift to the readers. But if research keyword it is a business

    I don't, but once in a while, I check what is trending on Google or Yahoo.

    I do research for the keywords and title and tags too. But many times they don't work.

    I tend to do some keyword research before writing my hubs because I want them to get as much traffic as possible. I am still fairly new to this so will have to see how it works out.
