<snipped link - do not promote your Hubs in the forums>
Brie, I have just twitted your hub.Have you tied to socialize it?
Oh...yes. I've put it everywhere. The problem is that there are a lot of articles about the same thing. I am trying to narrow it a bit...maybe concentrate more on the "scam" part.
For the exact search- "the student loan scam"- your article come in the first page of Google. I think the phrase "student load" is too competitive.
You might have put it everywhere, but you haven't gained a single backlink to that hub according to Market Samurai.
You are not on-page optimized for any keyword, not even student loan. Student loan scam isn't worth going for, there are barely any searches.
On all the other keywords - student loan, student loan debt, credit card debt etc, the competition is enormous.
Even here on HP there are 1000 hubs about student loans.
Richie is right. The time to check out the competition etc is before you write the hub.
Can't believe that after two years you still don't seem to understand basic keyword research.
Do you find it flows or is it too choppy?
I always do a little scout before I write a hub to see how many other articles exist about a subject

In 2018 I don't think it's neccessary to submit articles to Google anymore, they are sure to find your stuff through a sitemap or from a link on another page, eventually. That being said you've just minted a fresh new...
