New here with only five hubs. I watched a video showing how to use adwords to select a good title.
How effective would it be to (a)think of something I want to write and (b) use Adwords tools to look for very low competition, and (c) choose tag to build my title around that shows more than 5,000 global monthly hits and CPC of more than about 75 cents?
I will also monetize my hubs and try to drive traffic. I fear I will not be good at driving traffic.
I guess my question is if I use this formula, relying heavily upon Adwords, would my hubs be productive? It seems like buying low-rate long-term bonds. Am I wrong?
Just bear in mind that "low competition" refers to the number of advertisers competing for that keyword. It tells you nothing about how much competition YOU will face. In fact, very low competition on the Adwords tool can be a bad thing - it tells you there won't be much variety of Adsense ads available for you to display.
That's how most experienced members write their hubs. They pick a keyword related to there topic and use it in the Title, URL, some Subtitles and the Tags.
I personally don't try to drive traffic to any articles I write on any site (although I do a bit on my personal sites.) Usually article writing sites are ranked well enough that Google traffic will find you, as long as you have good keywords and a good niche.
Most of my articles get written the ignored. Most start to get Google views in a week at most and the views slowly increase over time.
And you're right about the long term bond - you can either earn $20 for writing the article up front (on some sites) or earn $100 over the next two years by getting revenue share. I prefer to know the money will keep coming!

For a long time it has puzzled me how one of my hubs keeps doing great, when it shouldn't. You see, I started a hub on one topic and then changed my mind in the middle of it.Now, back then I had no idea you couldn't...

I've been writing here for quite a few years, I go back to the ancient era before the 'featured' 'not featured' declension.I have found that 'fixing' a Hub which is not featured is a total waste of time, as in a day or...

I saw a dramatic traffic drop today and went to notice that over 100 of my hubs are not featured. While I can understand some of my older ones published over 4 years ago were not that great, some of them were published...

My most recent hub was Snipped and given a new short title by staff which does not properly reflect the contents of the hub. Views have been negatively impacted and have not picked up after the change. ...
