HP provide us a list of keyword using which people found our hubs. I did not not add many of those keywords in my initial tags.
Now will I add them in the tags? Sometimes the keywords are very long and misspelled, like "how to get more folloer in hubpages"
What should I do with these tags?
Yes! Also, above that are the words looked for but not found in your title. Adjust your title with those words. It's helped my numbers.
What if you are being found for things that your article is not about?
good question, I was just going to ask. Or by something that covers a very little part of the content.
Relevant keywords should be given to your article. Not doing so can effect your rating and possible flagging.
That is what I thought, so have not added in any of irrelevant key words, after all, people are clicking in, knowing that I am not covering just what they are looking for. I would hate to be deceptive.
Keywords/Tags are things that people need to be typing into search engines. The keywords/tags offer as suggestion by HubPages are not always best.
Hence, the reasoning built-in to SEO techniques, such as "keyword research", which allows you to determine competition for specific words people such for and what "advertisers" are willing to pay for certain words.
Sunforged has an excellent hub on keyword tips. Highly recommended reading.

I think it is very smart to watch the trends on what is searched by to reach your hub and through what search engine. I have a few hubs that I tweaked based on the stats. They said that more than a few searches reached my hub while looking for KWs that were not included by me. I made some minor tweaks and saw improvement.
I try to look at each hub at least once every few weeks to see if any new trends may be impacting them. It is always smart to reanalyze your work and see where you can improve...It may be enough that you would want to create a "cousin" hub to it just to target those new KWs.

When I read tutorials my head spins. So please give me an example using my topic: a recipe for baked salmon. If the title is "How to make Herb-crusted baked salmon", and I use the phrases "salmon fillet" "fish" throughout the hub, that's not optimizing right? Examples...

I would like to ask.....In your experience would you prefer to have one or two keywords that are highly targeted? Or would you try to have those targeted ones plus as many less targeted keywords as you can think of?Is there any downside to having loads of keywords for a page?

I have found two different schools of experts in the internet who have two completely different thoughts on choosing keywords but both have got success in their own style.1. select high/extremely high traffic keywords. The need to do much back linking.2. select low traffic but more specific, easy...

Hi all!I've searched around the forums and haven't found an answer to this one, so I thought I'd post a question here for those hubbers who have more experience at keyword research than I...When I do research using the Google Keyword Tool, one of the fields shown is a green bar called...
