SEO help for one of my hubs

    I'm fairly decent at SEO, but one of my hubs is underperforming and I'm not really sure why.  The main keyword I'm targeting isn't very competitive: ectomorph, and neither are any of the derivative long-tail keywords, including "ectomorph workout", "ectomorph weight training" and so-on.

    The hub has a decent amount of backlinks (13 outside of hubpages), which isn't a massive amount but it should be enough to get me ranked at least in the top 20.  Aside from working on adding more, which I will, I'm wondering if there's anything wrong with it that I'm just missing, such as a lack of keyword density or something of the like. 

    The hub: http://hubpages.com/hub/WeightGainTipsForEctomorphs

    Granted, this isn't my worst performing hub, but I wish it was doing better for the amount of work I put into it.  It's a solid 1900 words.

    I can only go by what I've learned from the veteran Hubbers, and the only problem I can see with your hub would be the amount of key words you are using.

    I've been told between 9-15 key words are good. If you have more than 20-25 it can hurt you. You have 36 listed.

    Just a thought. smile

    I would have to agree configure your tags to about a quarter of the amount you have and there will be a clearer description your hub's content.  smile

    Alright.  I'll give that a shot in a few + more backlinks.

    Although, don't more tags equate to more inbound links from hubpages, especially if my hub has a decent score and shows up on the "hot" tags or whatever?  Or will that not be as beneficial in getting a higher SERP?

    As I said, I'm only going by what I've been told by the veteran hubbers. I don't know any more than that about SEO, because I've not begun getting into it.

    Sorry, wish I could have been more help. smile
