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:

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.

I read that we should not repeat the keywords contained our hub url in the capsule titles within our article. Hence, if I am writing an article called (how to make a meat pie) and I have 30 capsules about the procedure;...

To get recognized on Google, does it search your URL or Title or both? How does that work?
