<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

So, just how long does it take for backlinks to kick in?I...

Hello Hubbers! I'm fairly new to HubPages, I've been here about a week now and love the community so far! Anyway, I was thinking, since we all have the same goal; to make money, get readers and help people, I thought I would make a topic for us all to discuss the best places to post our HubPages...

Hello, here's something I've been wondering about for a while.I have a few articles on another site, which has recently announced that it's no longer going to pay international contributors. So I'm thinking it would be a good idea to move a couple of them over to HubPages (where we're...

One again, I have fallen victim to the whims of Google. My top earning article is responsible for half of my total views over my HP career. It was the first to be HubPro edited. It was the first to be moved to a niche site. It's been getting very dependable traffic since June. Last Tuesday, the...
