How do you get your hub to rank well for your chosen keywords? Ive optimized a few test articles with 5% keyword density beating my competitors but it's not getting me anywhere. Is there anything else you can do?
Step 1) Write something useful. Make sure its unique.
Step 2) Get some quality backlinks using descriptions or blurbs which are also original.
Step 3) Repeat Step 1.
Andrews, all your articles seem to be about making money online. That is a popular subject, but there's an awful lot of competition out there!
You say you grew up in South Africa. How about writing some travel Hubs about it? It's an exotic place that many people would be interested in. Or write about parenting. Or moving from one country to another - the logistics of doing so, culture shock, settling in, etc.
You have a lot of material to write good, evergreen content!
You can also do things like blogging about your hubs, tweeting about it (on Twitter), directory submissions, social bookmarking, submit the RSS feed to feed directories, etc.
Basically, you have to treat it like a normal website and promote it, promote it, and promote it some more.
Thanks all for the tips!
Marisa in all honesty, I don't know why I never thought about writing about South Africa before! I have plenty to tell as far as the culture goes. Thanks
I wonder whether this kind of topic could go for a niche?

I have a sense that the mobile community is growing to the point where I think Hub articles over 1000 words are likely too much for those reading from a phone. I am of the mindset that I need to write shorter...

Have I got your attention? Good! I see so many forum posts about people saying they rank Number 1 on Google. Let's clear something up:If you rank number one for something that ZERO people search, that still equals ZERO...
