Hey I published a hub about a week ago and it got a lot of traffic from hubpages but almost nothing from google and other search engines. I really do think my latest hub has much more potential. Could someone help me in figuring out what titles and keywords to use? Any other advice would be very much appreciated.
You need to learn to do keyword research, there is a lot of information about that in hubs, forums and on the Internet in general.
Also, essentially your title contains only one keyword: "What is a xyz?" XYZ is the keyword. It is better to add some other meaningful words, like: "Definitions of a XYZ" or "How to recognize a XYZ." You can then put the variations - e.g. "recognize XYZ" and "definition XYZ" into your tags.
From what I understand, "How to..." and the like generally works better than titles phrased like a question.

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 keyword research to get good traffic. Personally my two go-tos right now are:1....
