I am about to write my first commercial hub.It is about working from home setting up small businesses like a babysitting agency etc co-ordinating jobs, bringing employers and employees together for a fee.
I haven't got my head round keywords and long tails. Not expecting any help beyond one of you kind experts suggesting I go with choice 1 or 2.
Choice 1 How to make money from home helping others.
Choice 2 How to make money helping others.
Or do you think both are overly competitive?
I will write this this evening. Any help gratefully acceped.
I'd vote neither. I like Mega's suggestion much better, or something similar.
Even without considering what's a good keyword, I didn't feel either of your titles gave me a clear idea what the Hub was about. They sound contradictory, as if you're suggesting making money deviously out of what should be charity.
Marissa, thank you for replying. I know you must be right and logical. You are one of the hubpages geniuses. I didn't get where I am today by being logical. So I will carry on with the majority. ( admittedly very small)
Marissa, you frighten me, you know I will fail. But I've got to get started.
I like the first one because I believe you will get more visitors that are looking to work from home with that title.. I would say use the google keyword tool to check the searches and competition.. Good luck with it I would say long tail titles are the best..
Hope things are going well for you Mega. You deserve to be top dog. Sorry cat. Ireally love that title you suggested. Far more help than I expected. I was a little worried that hubbers would think me a bit cheeky or lazy for asking this question.But all this help has galvanized me to action.
Mega, if I use that title, which I think I will I will make sure I repay you for your kindness. Backlinks will come your way.... when I figure it out. Also a giant hubber pointed out on some site, you need another hubber to promote you ( you can't promote yourself) he got someone to do it and got 500,000 views plus. Mark knowles. So we could all ........ I will certainly do it for you. Thanks again Sean
thanks sean! I can use any promotion I can get - helping each other is what these forums are really for and I'm always glad to see these kind of posts. I know what its like to try to think up something and it just won't come - a few words to other hubbers and look how great the response is! I will remember this next time I'm in a bind with some project. I often forget to ask for help.
like - I wrote a 3 part series that is a fiction story about a man with erectile dysfunction - which started out to be kinda funny but ended up more serious in a tongue-in-cheek kind of way. But I think my readers are far to kind and gentle to give me some real critique - which is what I need if I'm going to keep doing these kind of things. If you can, you would help me out a lot by just letting me know what you thought of these - called Aroused - parts 1 thro 3. I think this wouldn't be considered promoting myself to ask for your advice here. hope not.
Mega I read those stories , they were weird and great. Honestly, I was so stunned I forgot to leave comments. But yes I follow your writings and truly recommend you to other hubbers. Wow, I think I have just hijacked ( prob not the right terminolgy) my own post.
so it really does pay to be a friend and help out other hubbers! hehehe fun too! I'm glad you liked those. I got so few comments I began to think I was doing something wrong. I do need to edit myself a little better and not be so darn wordy. I know that is a factor for sure. Usually I do better if I wait a couple days before I go and publish the thing. Look at it several times etc. But but some people have been talking about how they do you know, 6 - 7 hubs in one day! I thought I should get a bit faster. I will never get to that point I know that for sure.
For what it's worth, I checked the Keyword tool for you. No one (and I mean NO ONE) is searching for either. They are looking for "make money from home," but I suspect there's a ton of competition for that keyword phrase.
I think my last try was over a year ago. I honestly have never had success with it EVER, even with third party tools, bar ONE title about three years back. If you're freaked out by it, don't stress. You don't HAVE to do...
I didn't really think that it was appropriate to create a video for this, but I did want to bring up something that's as important as anything else when it comes to writing a Hub (well, besides writing great content, of...
I have written 3 hubs. I've had 9 views in 7 days and no comments. I am really new to this and can't seem to get my stuff out there. My hubber score is 77. I am feeling discouraged. Please give tips. I have used...
