Would you use 1st or First for your hub title?
Silly question I know.
I guess ...maybe it depends on how am I going to use it..If it is necessary
and if it's essential
I would use First for the hub title..it is easier to type without having to search for the number..I guess that will be more effective for the SEO too.
Try searching for First and compare it with 1st in Google trends.
I would use the word, instead of just writing the number. The only time I use numbers on one a hub, is when I am writing steps, or instructions.
I'm never sure about this. When writing a Hub using a number for a list, i.e. Five or 5 of my favorite ______. If the number is less than 10, I write it out. I do notice when reading articles on the web, the numeral is used rather than writing it out.
I use 10 instead of the word ten but never try any hub on 1st yet
I would use use the word if it is at the beginning or end of the title. I might use the number if it is in the center or near the end.
Not a silly question! It's a good thing to know, even though the rules can get fuzzy… Even when we know we sometimes still make mistakes. Check out:

Personally, I would write it out "First". But realistically, it would probably be better to do it based on what people search with. For example, if you went to Google to try to see who won first place in an Olympic event, how would you type it? When you have your answer, match your hub to it in the hopes that others will use similar search terms.
I will use the words (First) and not 1st in my titles. I think this will be the google trend also. Numbers are used only when to count like 6 steps or 10 important factors like that.
Normally, you would spell out the word, if it is the first word of the headline. If it is the beginning of the headline, then "1st" would be acceptable. There are always exceptions. I remember reading a headline, on an editorial page, that said something like "1st in ambition, 2nd in spending and 3rd in ability."
There are generally accepted rules for writing headlines, but there are a lot of accepted exceptions.

Is it ill advisable to put a word in quotations in a hub title?
by Dorsi Diaz 9 years ago
When I first started writing at HubPages I was under the impression that one should make the url and the first title of their hub the same.So my question now is: When trying to write the url for maximum traffic, how much should you really deviate on the main title? Or does it even matter if the key...
