Benson Yeung's Obsession With Boobs

If you read this week's newsletter, you'll understand that "eye catchy titles" are a bad thing.
If you want to get search engine traffic - which is where your paying traffic will come from - your title needs to be as close as possible to what people will type into a search engine. That isn't going to be something smart or catchy.

I heard someone say that if possible your hub title should be the exact keyword that you use as your main keyword, if you want to rank high in search engines. But that doesnt allow for a catchy title which will get you seen easier on a social bookmark site for instance, which could boost your...

My most recent hub was Snipped and given a new short title by staff which does not properly reflect the contents of the hub. Views have been negatively impacted and have not picked up after the change. I want to change the title back to what it was. I wrote to staff...

I am kind of tired of this whole traffic thing. Everyone else claims great success, and I can't get a view. I have only 2 views today, and 23 views for the whole week.I have tried everything to get traffic, and nothing is working for me. I even joined several social sites, and my traffic has only...
