    Hello Sir:

    I would be glad to offer you a little advice, but than again I am not expert in SEO, or coming up with keywords. Sometimes it is all about escaping, or getting away from the vortex that writer's block can take from us. In other words most of us who write on a freelance basis are sometimes short of titles for article ideas-let alone keywords that will help others find those articles. I personally try to think of a useful and catchy title idea and take keywords either out of that title, or jot down some keywords on paper that will closely correspond to my title ideas for all future articles. Placing the keywords in the first few sentences, mid portion, or body of your article, as well as in the last few sentences,or last paragraph, will help others locate your article, or locate information within in it, that may be useful to them. So I suggest you take a notebook, or journal and a pen/pencil and begin by choosing catchy keywords, and/or phrases and also titles for upcoming articles and writing them down on paper. However try to keep your article titles short and to the point.  Something even I have trouble accomplishing often.  Hope this little bit of advice helps you out.  Good luck.

    Hi Sir_tallest,
    I find all my keywords and titles in the Google Keyword tool, you can find it @ https://adwords.google.com/o/Targeting/ … WORD_IDEAS            I use the key word tool because it shows you how people search for your keywords, how many people search for your keyword, locally and globally, and how much $$$ you can make on adsense, or you could guess what people are searching for, just remember one thing, one keyword can be the difference of 80 people searching or 80,000 people searching, the choice is up to you smile
    Take care Sir_tallest, and if you have any questions, look me up, I wrote a hub about keyword research.

      You're very welcome Jlbowden, If you have an idea for a hub, the next step is to figure out how people will search for your idea, so who better to ask than the one who will send you the most traffic, lol smile

    If you want to write trendy and current topics which are hot, try visiting Google Trends. Explore your topics there on what's hot and from there I'm sure you can come up with good topics that you're good at writing at.

    I keep the 'thread' of my Hub-page in mind usually, using the salient points as keywords. When I work from notes I go through them after setting down the heading + sub-heading and use what I think are the important factors - sometimes I end up with a surfeit of key-words and have to go back through them when I've finished my piece, 'weeding out' what I think I can do without. Then I call it a day.
    As to topics - or themes - I have a large store of information at my fingertips in the form of books. By and large I make a 'digest' of a topic I think my readers will be interested in - or I can 'draw' them into - and work my own writing style into the exercise. The results come with years of forming my own 'take' on favourite themes, or a passion for communication.

    Try Google's keyword tool, you can search for that term by going to Google and looking up "Google keyword tool". Its actually an Adwords or 'Google Adwords' tool. After locating it from there, you should be able to accurately locate far better keywords that you may be in search for to add to your titles of your hubs.

    Good Luck & good question.

    Your question is actually in two parts. Finding topics and getting the right keywords to use.

    As far as topics are concerned, there are many ways to get topics. Thinks about conversations you've had with friends. You can write Hubs by elaborating on many ideas you've discussed at social affairs or even in phone conversations.

    Another idea is to write about topics of interest to you. If you have a passion, write about it. There will always be people out there who have the same passion and who want to read about it.

    Life experiences are also a great source of ideas for topics. Go ahead and write about life experiences that you feel can be of use to others. That's what I do.  Anything that has happened to you that may be good or bad, can be a source of inspiration for others who may be doing Google searches for those same life issues.

    As you write, the keywords will come naturally. Your focus should start with topics.  Once you get the hang of things, you can concentrate on SEO techniques by finding the right keywords. All the other answers I see here have explained it well.

      I agree with Glenn, I chose topics I am interested in and care about, then I use the Google keyword tool to help me chose the best words for the title.

      Great feedback and you of all persons are living proof that life experiences as well as relationship issues are great topics to write about. Your book_"What was I thinking" definitely says it all in a nutshell. JIM

    Mine usually come from everyday things that happen in my day to day life. smile Once the thought or idea matures, I use the Google Adsense keyword tool to play around with what comes up with various words that may work and such.  I did one recently in regards to Ebay Top Sellers involving feedback.  From that I put in Ebay....Top Sellers, Ebay Top Sellers and Ebay feedback.  All returned various keywords and keyword phrases along with stats and such. From that you can move forward.

    I literally pick out whatever interests me. If it ends up being a popular topic then I'm rewarded with a ton of traffic, if not then i delete it after its hubscore drops below 70.

    As my business is about travel in Australia, I have so far written around that theme. The travel with your family... hub allowed me to be a bit more personal with my story. I write about what I know and what I am interested. I think if you write from the heart, you will strike a cord with people. As for keywords, an online dictionary and  thesaurus, online keyword tools and combine that with what words you would type in a search engine if looking for that topic.

    For Keyword ideas, use the Google Keyword tool to find out how many people are searching for a particular word or phrase locally or globally. So, it's good to come up with a topic first, then find low competition keyword(word or phrase) to use in your topic and a few times in your article. You mentioned about finding topic -- you can write on subjects you are knowledgeable about, or share information on things you know other people might be interested in.

    I use the Google Keyword tool. It helps you see which words people are searching for and what to do to refine the keywords you will use for the most logical and optimized title. I just wrote a hub on the subject a couple of weeks ago. The title is "Keyword Analyzation Tools Help You Write Better Content to Generate More Traffic to Your Online Store Web Page". Here is the link: http://hubpages.com/t/2fd6de

    The hub also contains a video tutorial to show you how to use the keyword tool.

    1. Your creative mind and vivid imaginations are your primary tools.

    2. Look for other hubs, blogs, websites (related to your expertises and interests) and create your own ideas out of them.

    3. Google Keyword Tool is another awesome tool that you can use to find 'potential' and 'profitable' keywords out of your ideas.

    4. If you can afford, there are various tools that help you in this problem. For example, the Micro Niche Finder has a 'Brainstorm' button, as well as a 'Hot Trend' button.

    I hope it helped.

      That's about it, the gist of writing. It's what jumps out at you from the page once you get started.
