How many people use the title tuner and if so does this work to bring more traffic to your HubPage?
I check it. Often its suggestions are useless, but sometimes it does help me see things I did not think of.
Whether it helps is difficult to say. Probably.
As someone told me, at least consider adding the suggestions as a tag somehow - until you add too many then you get a nasty message about too many tags!
If I've researched a keyword string that I want retained in the title, I try not to disturb it.
I attended the HubCamp in NY City last weekend, and according to Paul & Robin Edmondson (CEO of HubPages and HubPages Director of Education, respectively), the most important element in a successful hub is the title! All else being equal, a hub with a strong title will outperform one with a weak title...
Robin and Paul suggested using the Title Tuner to include frequently searched for words and improve our hub titles as time goes by - and I think they might know what they're talking about
It does work, but it won't do as much as you think.
Search engines works by analyzing all of the URL's content: the links, the URL words, the titles, the summaries, the words in the links, and so on. Thus, if you have the words in the URL, but not in the title, or links or contents, then it won't become "relevant" than another URL that does have word in URL and title and etc.
Obviously the URL itself is important, but tuning the title DO help. I've changed many titles in order to incorporate the keywords recommended (which came from the individual searches).
The way title tuner works (that's my guess) is Hubpages analyzes the Google searches that arrive. The search URL actually includes the words searched.
Let's say your hub is about... X. And it can be found by searching for keywords A and B. Let's say John is searching for A, B, and C, and it found your hub. Hubpages see the keyword "C" is also being searched with A and B, so it recommends you add "C" to your title as well.
I've used their suggestions on some of my hubs ,and some traffic has improved.
i check back every few weeks.....the public is flicked..
Hiya Susan, I use it quite often and it works for me. As I am new here, I need all the help I can get to get more outside traffic. I add the words suggested, if I could. As I said it works for me.. it is actually amazing! I recommend it.

First I posted suggest Links not working and now just went to Title Tuner and nothing there, when I know that there were a few in my title tuner as suggestions by HP. Is that no longer too?

The title tuner was a bit of a baby of mine. There was a really high correlation with improving rankings by adding keywords and refining titles of Hubs for a long time. The tools purpose was to make it easy...

Did some of you noticed an option Title tuner in hubpages? It suggests you how to tune your title to get more traffic. It worked for me. There was 3 fold increase in trafic when I just added a key word hubpages...

I have not used the feature in a while so went use the feature but it told me there were no suggestions. This does not seem right as the last time I used it there were suggestions on some hubs which I did not use.
