    Carol, have you ever tried Google's free keyword tool?  That's where I go to find my keywords.  Go to Google Search and enter 'keyword tool'.  When you are taken to the keyword tool, enter a word that might describe your main topic, such as 'birds'.  A list of possible keywords will pop up.  I try to use those that have low competition but high search numbers.  If you didn't already know this, I hope you find this helpful.

      I use it all the time and have followed instructions to  use it beginning, middle and end ...but so far no extra views because of using the best keywords with low competition.

    Hey carol, sometimes there might be several keywords in some articles, so it might be hard to tell which one the Hubber is trying to get rank for. Some of these keywords might have very low search volume, in comparison to the actual ones the writer is trying to focus on. I think thou, since no one wants to be penalized by Google for Key Word stuffing, the main key word might appear mainly in the opening paragraph, the middle, and the conclusion with regards to a 500 words article.

      True, Carol. Keywords vary but usually are related to the topic.  Google Keyword tool is useful in finding what words are in SEO popularity and will help when wriiting your hub.

    The problem with keywords is, that they are the history of what has been searched for in the past, not necessarily what people are searching for now.

    So it is a bit of a crap shoot. Also Google has over 200 elements that it uses to assess a web page, keywords are less relevant.

    Get a good title from the Adwords program and just try to write naturally.

    Contrary to what you may read elsewhere here and on the web. Google has never stated that there is a set number of keywords, that each web page 'should' have.

    There is no golden ratio. Although many people think there is. Just write your hub as naturally as you would speak, and let Google sort out where it should be in the rankings..

    Hope this helps. Many hubbers including myself have written many hubs covering this topic.

    If you are keen on keyword you can follow it. But I think or I used to write my hub as it comes to my mind. I given attention to the spelling only.
    Including attractive photos in hubs will also helps its ranking.

    Hello Carol7777. I have not the answer. However. I changed the titles on most of my hubs using Google's keyword tool as an aid when the ZzZ phenomena occurred. The views went from an average of mid twenties per day upward beyond 100 and remained constant after using the keyword tool. Or a 300%+ increase.

    I realize it is a small number sample, yet results are results and relative to the marketplace, which for me today is Hubpages. More specifically it is to the followers that hub is submitted and their home feed. Word of Mouth occurs after that, since I really do not facilitate SEO principles, yet.

    Yet, that does not answer what you asked regarding keywords and phrases. I am not a programmer, yet I have spent a portion of twenty years on researching reading. And the simple thing to remember is those web crawlers 'read.' Technology is amazing, however programmers are human and follow human rules with the assistance of technology when creating bots for a specific purpose.

    A Catch 22 kinda' thing is, in this author's view from research is those bots do index our hubs, yet they do so for 'humans', not other bots. Learning how humans read for information, how humans read for specifics, and how humans read for pleasure becomes important how to use keywords with placement.

    In other words the keyword search tool is extremely valuable. Yet, and maybe more so, is how those keywords are used is the key. With reading for information there is a methodology. Asking questions, like does repeating a keyword or phrase from the title in the bold text sub-headings more valuable? Is repeating the keyword or phrase in the media descriptor valuable? Is repeating the keyword phrase with the affiliate Market descriptor valuable? Is repeating the keyword or phrase with the associated links capsule more valuable? Is repeating the keyword or phrase with replies to comments valuable? And, I have always pondered synonym usage too. Or, what are those bots programmed for?

    Bots do not have a conscious to my knowledge anyway. They only seek, find, and report back the information. That information is compared / contrasted to a matrix of some sort and the result is a classification. Then, maybe, that classifier is introduced to a larger matrix along with other classifiers. And, that result is an index of some sort. Again, I am only a novice with programming language.
