If I am targeting specific keywords/keyword phrases and I am putting them in my url when I create my hub should I put a dash (-) in between the words?
My question is in regards to SEO purposes. Lets say you are targeting a 3 or 4 word keyword phrase, do you think in Google it would rank better to have a dash in between the words.
The is no need to add the - to your title. When you write your title, it automatically puts a - between every word...
how do you get to automatically put in the dashes, when I put in the title I then have to got put the url in?
What am I doing wrong. I have seen before when setting up a hub that it will auto populate that area, but when I go in there now and put in the title and click "tab" it is not filling in the url for me. Should I just put it in manually and put the dashes in myself?
When you click on start new Hub, you go to the HubTool.
As you type in the title that you want, watch the line underneath.
This is the url line.
You will see the url appear there as you type your title.
Make sure you do not write you title as one word or this will not work
From what I've read it doesn't make any difference either way for SEO purposes.
Humans can probably read the URL more easily with dashes in it which they will do when deciding to visit your hub or not. I'm sure search engines are smart enough to break down the URL into the important keywords either way.

I take out all the hyphens when I make my URl for my articles. To me it just looks nicer. For example (not a real hub) hubpages.com/notarealhub is what I would use as opposed to the recommended...
