How do you choose keywords for your articles?
Everyone has their own way of searching
What's the best according to you?
The theme for you hub are correlated with many things...for example, Buddha, Buddhism, religion, Four Noble truths, ...any key concept you can use...
Hey, thumbi ,
I never choose the key words nor do search for these These are born out of my main articles.
I generally focus on a core idea in my hub, find one or two ideas to create a basic keyword list.
So say a hub on the Kindle Reader, this basic list would include; amazon, kindle, e-readers, nook.
I would then publish the hub with that small core of keywords or tags.
After the initial rush of hubbers finding the hub, generally after one or two months the keyword statistics would begin to come into focus on the hubs statistics menue. I then expand the keywords to include some of the more highly rated suggestions by the program that finds links to the previous 30 days search terms sent to search engines.
You can always go to Google AdWords too at the very start to see what keywords are being chased by advertisers, but personally I have found this method lends itself to keyword stuffing.
Another trick is to read other hubbers work and play a game. You are a Search Engine, now find as many keywords in the article as you can. Some hubbers who stuff are easy, the really good ones are the hubbers who make it seem they have no keywords.
I like to use Google's keyword tool. Once I have an idea for a topic, I'll go over to the tool and start research for long-tail keyword phrases.
I make a top 10 list of words that come to mind when I think about the topic. It's almost like playing Taboo.
