This question might have been answered in a thread somewhere but I can't find it. The question is: Do you write your article first then find keywords for titles or keyword inserts into the article or do you find keywords and then write your article?
I always do the title first. One of the best pieces of advice I ever had on this site is that every word in a hub is a key word! It helped me quite a bit. How can you write an article if you haven't yet determined how to title it?
That makes sense. But, should keywords dictate your article?
I write the article first. I always have a working title, but it usually changes as time goes on. I use different phrases and synonyms throughout the article. As time goes on, I check to see what search terms are bringing people to the article. If the major ones are not already reflected in my title, I may change it to include them.

I'm having an issue deciding what keywords to go after. Most of the lower competition words I'm not as interested in and it takes me longer to write since I'm not enjoying. But, most of the things I'm very interested in are harder to rank for but I can pump out hubs on those subjust easily. So, do...

People have suggested I join Infobarrel so I did. I unpublished and deleted a hub here about La Guancha in Tenerife and thought I would use it as my first InfoBarrel article. The first problem I ran into was it said I was using a keyword too much. The keyword was roses and I was saying that there...
