The experienced hubbers have all been so generous, I want to give back something. Except, I don't really know a lot. What I DO know is that it is tough to integrate all this information all at once. Maybe other newcomers would benefit form hearing my thoughts as I begin to make my way through the keyword tangle.
I guess I could write a hub, but I want to encourage discussion, and be more informal. so here's what I am learning:
Focus on a goal. Sales hubs are different from informational hubs. Affiliate marketing is fun.
Keyword use is simple and direct-- use the keywords consistently and naturally throughout the text. Keyword research is the OPPOSITE! Finding the right keyword/words is tricky. That is why it's so difficult to see adsense earning right away. Adsense is keyword driven. Amazon is "buyer-ready" driven. Probably difficult to find correct keywords that will serve both purposes in a single hub.
Backlinking is kind of intimidating. It looks like it is going to be necessary.
Traffic for some people tops 2000 views a day. And I though 70 was good. Huh.
Learned the hard way: CHOOSE THE KEYWORDS BEFORE YOU WRITE THE ARTICLE!!!

I've only made 4 cents total, according to adsense. I know the process can be slow, and I know it will take a lot more hubs to get any sort of steady increase... but is 4 cents really all I've made so far? Can somebody...
