Is this true that hubs with long titles and more keywords get more search engine traffic?
Yes.. Mostly. The more words in a title/article, the greater the chances of matches to Google searches. Keywords help too, and knowing what lingo people are using can help you brainstorm how to write your articles. Other factors apply too, of course. Even using several keywords, you may have trouble get views for a fitness article, as those have been done to death.
And of course, don't insert keywords just for the heck of it; make sure they flow naturally into your Hub, or you're losing more than you're gaining.
It depends on what long means. It is recommended to have a character count between 50 - 60 characters. Beyond that it won't show up in the snippet displayed on Google. Here is a link to an article at the HubPages Learning Center about Crafting a Title: https://hubpageshelp.com/content/Learni … ndly-Title
Yes, it is advantageous and recommended to have one or two keywords in the title and used in the article. Especially in the first paragraph. The keyword or a synonym should be used throughout the article, but should be organic and natural while maintaining content quality. A first cautionary hint is overuse of keywords is consider keyword stuffing and is considered spam by Google. The article will be penalized by the algorithms used to assess articles for ranking.
I do not have too many articles, but the ones which get the most traffic are really long. Maybe, it helps. And yes, I had taken care about the keywords as well. Basically, the title needs to be one which is searched.

The one thing that irks me about Hubpages is a lack of practical feedback. I love everything else. I love the tools we have to create hubs. I think mine look acceptable, but I am not sure if I am doing something...
