What helps you to decide what the best title is for your hubs?
I am just curious what approach you may use to help you pick out a good hub title for SEO purposes? I know some use Google Keyword Planner. What are some other things you do? Also, do you try to repeat keywords in the body of your hub a certain number of times?
I like the keyword planner. There is another tool called ubersuggest that I use also for a lot of great derivatives and ideas for long tail keywords. It is also useful when creating subtitles.
I don't count for keyword density within the text - unless I feel I've been repeating a word too often. Google doesn't like this practice anymore and considers it "keyword stuffing", so it's best to avoid even the appearance of doing it. Once you have a good working title, let the article flow naturally and don't contrive the whole of the text too much. A few good subtitles to go with the title that clearly explain what the sections are about is great.
I also make hubs very visually appealing so that they are more widely shared on social media.
I think about a tile that will grab people's attention and then I type it into Google. If too many sites come up because it's similar to other pages, I change things around by using different keywords or phrases.
