    I wrote a hub during the time when Hubtrails was hot and it was suggested to put Hubtrails Capstone in the title, which I did.

    But now I'm wondering if I should change the title to something more search engine friendly. The name of the hub is Tampa Bay Metro Area;Hubtrail Capstone Hub.  It covers the 3 major cities in the area.  It does get outside traffic, but I think it needs a change.

    I'm thinking of removing the last part and changing it to; Things to do and see in Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg. 

    I'm open to suggestions.

    Sounds like a good idea to change it. However, I would put "Things to do and see" last, like: "Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg - Things to do and see."

    I would like to keep Tampa Bay first, maybe leave out the word metro.. oh how funny, I just googled tampa bay metro area things to do and see, and this thread came up!

    keep them coming, I'm listening.

    Hubtrails is an entirely internal word with no meaning outside Hub Pages.
    I'd definitely change the title to be more search engine friendly.
    Sounds like you've got a winner there!

    I thought of that and wondered why it was suggested to place it in the title, but none of my keywords searched are hubtrails!  I'm think I'm going to try Tampa Bay Metro Area; Things To Do and See In Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater, but the URL remains the same, correct?

    thanks for the help, WE and MM. smile

    Yes, the URL doesn't change. But that doesn't affect traffic, right?

      I think the Title Tuner feature proves that tweaking the title - even though changing the URL is not possible - is a good idea.
