My titles are keyword crazy, why am I not getting more google.com hits?
How many other people are writing about the exact same thing on the internet as you? Just using lots of keywords isn't going to give you a leg up when there are tons of other people out there doing the same thing.
To get Google's attention, you need the main text of your Hub to be highly-useful and unique to readers. You have to offer something they want and need, and which they don't get somewhere else.
Also, having a whole series of titles that are extremely similar to each other makes them less helpful to readers and doesn't differentiate their content to either them or the search engines.
Keywords alone will not get you onto the search engines top results. There's much more work one must do on hubpages and beyond in terms of networking, content mastery, and more to get the SEO to work effectively. read more
I think they are so many people writing now. I personally was surprised to discover I was number on search because I wrote about a city that is not so known around the world, the pictures were gorgeous too. It was really not my purpose.
CloudExplorer is right - patience and work hard. Keywords alone is not going to help. I am learning the ropes of writing online and on hubpages. It takes hard word but it is well worth it.
I have read more than once that your first three keywords are the ones picked up, so I would make those good ones.
In time you will have good traffic from Google. I have a friend who has earned a lot of money because the search engines are very friendly to his hubs. Keep writing and you will have enormous traffic soon.
seattleamilehigh1, there are many factors which will decide the traffic to your Hubs. Just catchy titles would not work. Please have a look at:

I see a lot of queries about getting traffic, lack of traffic, how to increase traffic, etc. The long answer is it takes time, hard work, good writing skills, mastery of the formula, surviving Google algorithms, and persistence.

For a long time it has puzzled me how one of my hubs keeps doing great, when it shouldn't. You see, I started a hub on one topic and then changed my mind in the middle of it.Now, back then I had no idea you couldn't change the URL later, so I was horrified when I was stuck with a URL that couldn't...

When you make titles do you consider drawing hits from Google, SEO, or just try to make it...interesting? I have tried both and it doesn't seem to make much difference.

Since I joined HP there has been a constant battle against the rise and fall of traffic. We are often encouraged to tune our titles, edit our content and generally try to improve our Hubs. Now with the threat of having Hubs unfeatured, as well as the new quality assessment process taking place...

It seems to me they are. You find out what's searched on the Internet and put it in the title of your article. But it seems to me, some of it is just logic; What will someone likely type into the search engine? No one is going to search for "how to pay attention instead of getting wrapped up...
