Would you use the Google Keyword Tool or the Title Tuner?

    Which would be more helpful as you create, write, and publish a new Hub?

      Thanks Arlene. I'd never considered using either but now I'll have a shot and see what they can do for me. Cheers!!!

    The title tuner works based off search engine visitors to your hub.

    Since a new hub has never had visitors, you can't use the title tuner on it.

      What is title tuner?? I've seen this section on "my account" but I don't know what do I do with it!

        It recommends words to add to your title, based on what people are typing into search engines to find your page.

    I used the title tuner a few times. It suggests words to include in the title. It can be a bit balky fitting in the suggested words, so I only use the ones that are rated at 90% or more.

    Some of the suggested keywords are way too funny... You really need to use the tool with discretion .. not just put everything it throws up into the tabs.. look for terms that are used frequently to search and get to your hub and incorporate them... smile

    Proper use of the Google Keyword Tool can be extremely helpful. As Question has already said, the Title Tuner cannot be used until after it's been created and published for some time.

    The Google Keyword Tool is a great tool for helping in Hub creation, while the Title Tuner is just that, a tool to Tune your Title.

    The title tuner is for "after the fact," but if you can get the keyword in the title, to start with, you will be less likely to need the title tuner. The title tuner fixes; the keyword tool builds it right the first time.

    I have used the title tuner and ended up with titles that say things like Best Easy Ways How to Whatever.  It's a clumsy instrument.

    Here's an example of Google Adwords.

    I recently wrote a new page, don't bother looking at it, please, it's rubbish. Needs more work sometime.

    I called it How to Stop Missing Deadlines.  Seemed like an OK title.

    Unusually for me I checked it via the Adword thing.  There are NO searches for that.

    So I tried How to Meet Deadlines.  There are lots (sort of) searches for that.  Although there is more competition.

    It won't rank anyway, and I'm a bit down and hacked off with the whole internet writing thing anyway today but...

    My point is.  Checking the title is probably a very good idea.

      Thank you, y'all, for the explanations.  I did try the Title Tuner a few times, and it gave me minor things like the use of  "at" and "your".  Also, you have to wait on it in order to use it.  Back to the Google Keyword Tool.  Sounds much better to use.  Thanks, again, for your help, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

        I started using the keyword tool yesterday.  It's neat and very helpful.  A little early to see what it will do for me.

    I agree about the title tuner. I find it worthless.
