Do you decide the topic for a hub first and then do keyword research?
or do you research which topic is hot and then research and make a hub on that topic?
No Actually, i first choose the topic of my interest, then write the hub, only after that i decide a good keyword for my topic.
I have enough trouble trying to think up article titles that I know something about so I decide the topic first. Then I do the keyword research. But many people will argue against this vehemently and recommend creating an article around a number of keywords. Maybe someday I will be able to do that, but right now my brain does not seem to work that way.
I'll add this comment and with any luck at all you will be able to see what the major response is to your question. Then you can try that and see how it goes. Good luck.
I already have a list of hot topics. When i am ready for any write up, I carry out a research on the title, the keywords and the body in that order.
I write the hub first on a topic that interests me or something that I want to write about. Then I look for keywords and try to include these in the title and hub. It probably takes me a bit longer, but its the only way that I can work.
It really depends because I may start with a topic in mind, but when I start to do the keyword research, I often find a topic, phrase or question that is more appealing or that I think will get better results. I'm pretty flexible when I'm writing my own articles; I think it's a subtle rebellion against clients who are so rigid in their titles, topics, and keywords:)
If you don't know yet, SEO is a bit of a joke. Think about American TV networks. They do market research and everything else before launching a show.They think they know what's hot. They put the show on the air and it flops. Meanwhile, some idiots acting like fools film everything they do. Then you get a hit like "Jersey Shore". What's hot today is cold tomorrow
Research keywords for a hub? What's the payoff. Just write and the keywords take care of themselves. It isn't SEO to write about gifts for teenagers near Christmas, Hello?!
Do you like the way I worked TV into my answer?
Hubs that are for money making purpose, I have learned over time to search the keywords on the subject first them do the title and the hub. The truth is, most of my hubs are on a whim so I have to be editing and adding relevant key phrases...lol
Before I learned about SEO I used to write the hub and title first. After learning SEO I would would edit those hubs to add the relevant key-phrases. But I am learning to do the keyword thing first.
I agree with WD - I just think of my topics, research and write. Somewhere along the waym I'll probably do enough keyword research to let me go back and tweak them, but I'm not interested in writing purely with keywords in mind.
no, I write my hub first before placing important keywords. I guess, researching for keyword first is a routine that most people hubbing for money do. But for me, i just write what I feel like writing.
No, I don't write in that way. I choose my topic and I concentrate on the content that I'm giving my readers and I don't focus on keywords at all. My prime concern is quality content and information that is verified.
I never search what topic should I write. I know what my topics are. I make a list of them and write them when I have the time to do so. Keywords come later.
No, I just write hub before getting any research on keywords and its been flow naturally when I wrote a hub.
