I decided to write a hub on keyword research aimed at beginners. I had two things in mind, the research I had to do to write this made me learn about some things that I needed to learn about and secondly, to provide a service to beginners in keyword research.
I want specific feedback:
1. Is the information accurate?
2. Have I told beginners to do anything that would not be helpful?
3. Does the Hub cover the topic in a way that makes sense?
4. Have I made any horrible mistakes that could ruin the experience for beginners.
My purpose here is to make sure that I have given good advice that will help beginners get started in keyword research that will work for them.
I am not interested in other feedback, I don't want to know about grammar or punctuation or placement of ads. I want the content to be right and good for beginners. Please comment on the content.

I found it good, Steve, although I don't use the "broad" classification at all. I'm also willing to accept less than 500 searches; some of my best performing hubs showed less than 200.
You might point out that competing against a PR of 3 can work, but can be difficult. Better would be lower. History also plays a part, as do backlinks of the competition. I also look at how many results there are to a search as at least an indication of what I'm up against. It certainly isn't the final answer, but can be an indication.
It also took me a little time to find the button at the bottom that would present up to 800 options in the keyword tool. Shouldn't have, but it did.
A final comment; if you can find a good way to use the new tool, I'll be back to your hub to re-read it. I don't like it at all - the old options at the left side were valuable to me in that they could reduce the options from 800 to 50 or so and I haven't found a way to duplicate that.
Thanks for the feedback wilderness! Points taken.
I will revise the page rank stuff, I got so tired of writing this hub that I got sloppy on the page rank part.
Wilderness, could you tell me what options you miss?
I remember having this discussion a few weeks ago with someone and pointing out that the options are still there, they've just all been hidden or moved. So if you tell me what's missing I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Hey everyone,This might seem like a silly question, the answer to which is probably glaringly obvious to my more experienced fellow hubbers, but I'm truly at a loss here. I'd like to know how you come up with original hubs to write after doing research on a proposed topic. Nearly every...

I hear the phrase, "mature a hub," a lot. What actually happens when a hub matures? I know people say that after a hub has matured (around six months) it starts to do much better. But what actually happens when a hub matures? Thanks!
