      Now,, just in case you learn better in a visual way, Sunforged has published a brilliant hub about this with some very useful videos.  Take a look, I think it will help … d-Campaign

      Now there are a few of us that has teamed up on a promotional campaign.  It is called the 60dc.  It might be beneficial to you to watch the teams progress and learn through the journey over the next 60 days.  I, like all the hubbers, have produced a hublog.  This will help with monitoring our progress.  It is just a thought, but you might find it helpful to follow.

      Thank you very much, Ultimate Hubber
      I've been here 3 months and not used that tool until Today.

      Please let me ask,
      do you have to fill in the keywords manually? I tried clicking on download and it didn't seem to work.

        You "download" after doing your searches if you want to save your results.

    Yes. You need to type in keywords. And be sure to choose "Exact" match rather than "Broad" match.

      Can you do that without putting in your adsense acct? I tried but it said mine was messed up.

      Lisa, do you use exact match in MS SEOT estimates, too? That would explain the difference you see. smile

    Since you already have the hubs written, you should enter the url's -one at a time of course- and the tool will spit back out relevant keywords for you based on the url you enter. Or you can just enter the text in the text box.

    Click here and then save the page in your favorites: … egacy=true

    There is an old and a new version or url for the keyword tool. One limits you, the other doesn't, I forget which is which but that is the url for the one that works best. The other one -I believe the one that shows in the search results- is a hassle.

    When you get there you see "how would you like to search for keywords" or some such. Click the website content button. It then gives you the option to manually input your text (of your hub, one at a time), or just enter the url (of your hub, one at a time).

    It will then peruse your text and spit out a list of relevant keywords.

    Now, when it does that, look directly above the list on the right side for the drop-down box that says 'choose items to display' or some such. Click on the drop down box and select 'show CPC' or something like that, show estimated CPC, something like that, whatever it is, click on it to show the CPC.

    Now you have the info. you need displayed in front of you. You're looking for three things. A fairly high CPC, of at least a few dollars, a high search volume, locally, I have heard the figure 10,000 or above bandied about, anything less isn't worth your time unless it's a high-paying niche you know you can conquer, and high advertiser competition. The higher the competition, the more advertisers there are bidding to place ads for that keyword.

    Those three things are what you're looking for. What I normally do is sort by CPC, highest to lowest, just click the CPC tab until it's showing them displayed from highest to lowest, and then you can scan the top paying keywords at the top of the list.

    Gather up all those good ones which meet all three criteria preferably, and which you can naturally use in your hub, then rewrite your hub to optimize those keywords, but naturally. If your keyword is ... 'patience', don't write "Patience is a virtue of patience I said with patience, as I tapped my foot, losing my patience quickly," cause that'll make you sound dumb, first of all, and secondly, google isn't dumb, and you'll be penalized or banned from adsense for keyword stuffing.

    But naturally incorporate your keywords into your hubs, subtitles, photo, video, or chart captions, main title and if you don't mind unpublishing and restarting your hubs in a new hub, also incorporate the keywords into your url. Try and put the keyword phrase at the beginning of the title and the url. Not "one of the seven great virtues - patience" but rather "patience - one of the seven great virtues."

    And that reminds me, when collecting your keywords, be sure to try and use 'long-tail keywords', which just means keyword phrases, like "patience is a virtue" as opposed to just "patience". The longer keyword phrases are more likely to attract focused traffic.

    I'd just do a few at a time. You don't have to download the keyword results, you can just scribble the keywords down or copy and paste, note which hub they're for, and move on to the next one. Research a handful at a time, then stop and fix those before moving on.

    I know unpublishing and making completely new hubs would be tedious, but having the keywords in your url will benefit you more in the long run. I'd only hesitate if I had a few organic (truly organic) backlinks on a hub already, and the backlinks were pretty good

    Good luck, you've got your work cut out for you.

    Having just had a look at the google keyword tool - it appears to be a teeny bit from the Market Samurai tool with all the detailed good information missing.   If you are going to undertake a re-keywording of all your hubs I would have thought it would be worthwhile taking ther 14 day free trial and doing everything at the same time.  But as Marissa says in her thread, it can be a bit diheartening to find that so many keywords were always in the wrong place and some of htem the wrong way around big_smile
