    I am new here and I can't seem to wrap my head around keywords. I understand that keywords are what you use to look search with, and have looked for keywords on adwords. When I pick a keyword that has a good amount of searches it still seam hard to be found in a search. Is there a step that I am missing or does it just take time?

    Also when you use keywords do you pick a few keywords and put them together or do you put in a phase?

      when you find a good keyword you use it in 3 ways:
      1st and very important - In the TITLE of your article
      2nd - in the body of your text, (if you write about portable glass bottles for example, then portable glass bottles is your main keyword and you should use it naturaly, 3 to 5 time at every 500 words or so.
      3rd - in your tags

      Also, you can find similar words or combination of words that describe the same thing as your choosen keyword.

        And you should try to have the keyword in the Intro text capsule in the first sentence, or second will do.

        Use variations of the keywords in the body of the text throughout your Hub.

        Then try to build alt-text backlinks with those keywords, if at all possible.

    Yup, you're on Step 1 to keyword paradise. smile

    This is a whole big topic, way too big to thoroughly address here. I would suggest you wade through hubs by: Darkside, Sunforged, Thisisoli, Peter Hoggans, Mark Knowles or Marisa Wright. I'm sure one or all of them have a good keyword primer.

    I have seen where you can backlink with Ezine. When you use them do you use one of your hubs & link them back to your profile page or do you write a seperate article & link them to a hub related to that topic? Or both?

      It is best from a Relevant page (on a site, such as a similar topic) TO a relevant page (on HubPages, such as a similar Hub).

      So, if you wrote about a All About Special Widget on Ezine, then link over to Special Widget Pros and Cons on HubPages.
