When you choose your tags for your hub and with the keyword tool you see there is many keywords that can bring you money, do you use all of them? Or do you only choose a few based on what is in your titles and content? Thanks.
Relevant ones to the content. Others may have a different method. And as tags go, I don't use loads. As for the URL, depends on how much traffic you're already getting to the original.
I've a couple of hubs that have really crappy URL's and titles. More something you'd find in a magazine, which is not really recommended but they're still bringing in organic readers, day in day out.
So saying - sometimes URL's/titles just work, even though they shouldn't and keywords don't always mean jack. Or the eCPC for that matter.
Nutshell - URL/title are (usually) important. Relevant tags also. Redo the hub if you think it's beneficial.
If its new and you have not built up traffic or back links I would defiantly redo the URL. Since the URL is the one thing you can't easily change its best to get this right from the start or change it early while you can. I probably attach more importance to the URL and description than some others do.
Sorry, I'm used to calling it a description which is short for a Meta Description when you make your own web pages.
Here on hubpages its called the summary text. HP turns this summary text into a Meta Description within the hubs HTML code. I have a hub that goes into detail about this. Effective Keyword Usage On HubPages.
At the top of the edit page there are three tabs for you one says group and this is where you can group like hubs together under one main category. Another says summary. If you don't uncheck the box it will automatically use your first paragraph as the summary for your hub. If you uncheck the box, you can write your own that is more specific to keywords etc.
I had to go looking, hehe and that is an awesomely descriptive hub on how to use keywords. Others should read it http://hubpages.com/hub/Effective-Keywo … n-HubPages
Thank You lynnechandle. I hated to post the name since I didn't wish to be seen like I was self promoting. But it may be hard to figure out the right one since the title isn't very obvious. And it answers his question better than any forum post could.
Both title and URL are important as well as content and keywords. One has to use tags judiciously. Hubpages allow 40 tags at most.
If your hub is pretty new and you think that the URL is not suitable than change it and republish your hub.
If your hub is an old one and have backlinks to it or it is getting organic traffic, it is not worth to change the URL.
However, you can always change title of your hub (by just editing the title) if you deem it fit. It will not adversely affect your URL, Backlinks etc.

Is it important to have good keywords in the summary of the hub? Should the initial article on the hub have most of the keywords? Thank you. I am new.

For a long time it has puzzled me how one of my hubs keeps doing great, when it shouldn't. You see, I started a hub on one topic and then changed my mind in the middle of it.Now, back then I had no idea you couldn't change the URL later, so I was horrified when I was stuck with a URL that couldn't...

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...

SEO experts....How important is it that URL matches title keywords?I titled a hub, partially typed and saved it. Then I decided a different title would be more appropriate and changed it. I just realized the URL (in the address bar in the search engine) keeps the original title. So my URL does not...

There are tons of hubs on keyword selection and the various tools one could use to make the process easier.But, like most things 'net - they are mostly copies of copies of copies or poorly strewn together theories by intermediate writer-marketers ..So I ask... what was truly masterful, what made...

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...
