Ok, I have a minor "complaint."
I was just in the weekly Hub Topic Inspiration forum, in which was provided a link to the community pages tutorial on using the Google keyword tool.
The article was excellent and easy to follow. However, there was a lot of information, and at my age, I do not retain everything--I need to refer back to certain kinds of information.
My complaint is, there is no "bookmark" feature for these community articles, so trying to find it again for future reference may prove difficult.
I wonder if HP could add a bookmark utility to these posts??
Honestly, I think you would be better off forgetting all about that 'tutorial' because it will bring you little if any traffic following its advice.
The Estimated Average CPC box shows you an approximation of the cost per click for each search keyword. These are the most important numbers to consider when selecting titles using this tool.
This little tidbit will have you chasing after keywords that may pay high if clicked on but its a big IF. The most important aspect of the Google keyword tool is the columns the tutorial tells you to un-check or leave off the results. Local Monthly Searches, if you are targeting searchers in the US, or Global Monthly Searches, if you are targeting everywhere, must be considered if you want traffic in return for your hard work and research.
I've moved my tutorial to my own site (you can find it through the 'blogging tips' link on my profile) but here are some that are equally as good, and written by Hubbers that I trust and know are savvy in the ways of search marketing:

Thank you so very much. That is good to know. As a non-techie type, all of this "SEO Optimization" information is mind-boggling for me, and after reading something 3 times, I still may not really understand what it all means.
Thanks for the links--I will go look at them right now.

I joined hubpages one month ago and started writing hubs on weekends because I am very busy on working days. I have published 12-13 hubs right now and they are featured (12 of them while the 13th is still under review). Though my score on each hub is above 50 but I am seeing no traffic coming on my...

In the Google keyword tool, what is the maximum and minimum monthly searches I should aim for?I know that picking low ranking key words are better, but what is too low a keyword rank? For example 1 keyword I am looking at has a global monthly search of 500, would you write a hub with that, or...

I didn't really think that it was appropriate to create a video for this, but I did want to bring up something that's as important as anything else when it comes to writing a Hub (well, besides writing great content, of course) -- coming up with a great title. Out of all the things that can truly...

Perhaps i have not been able to put a proper question, but i think i am just lacking the right words to make you understand. In order to get traffic, we need to do keyword search on keyword planner, however i just wanted to know that what amount of "exact" average monthly searches is...

As an online writer I understand the importance of bookmarking. Most of us have them neatly placed in a folder or on our tabs but many readers don't. Although Pinterest is a good bookmarking site it is by far not the only bookmarking site. Simply giving readers the option of Facebook, Twitter, and...
