I've been redoing all my keywords. I always start with the title of my hub as the first keyword and another very similar keyword right underneath. Then I started adding my other similiar keywords. Does it matter the order in which they go on the side of the hub? I noticed with several of the hubs, I had put the keywords that I wanted at the top and then when I looked at those hubs again, the keywords got shuffled around. They all were still there, but things got moved into a different order. Should it not matter, as long as they are all there? And my traffic seems a little slow today, but you would think it's probably because its the day before Thanksgiving and people are either shopping, travelling or elsewhere.
Don't worry about your keyword order on the side of the hub. It makes no difference.
that's cool. I had earlier started deleting them and restarting so the most important was at the top. I'm liking that Google keyword tool. Went into igoogle this morning and started looking at all the gadgets you can get for your igoogle page. Now my page is full and some video started playing that I couldn't stop. But was interested in the online scrabble and solitaire games. I want to look for one on mahjong. That's my favorite.
I downloaded a few trial versions last week, but they only gave me an hour of play and then they want you to buy the full version of course. Have a happy Thanksgiving.
You really need to get yourself busy in the learning center instead of writing hubs. Obviously by the threads you keep opening you havent a clue what you are doing.
The traffic you keep speaking of. . . . have you any idea where it is coming from?
From the looks of your Hubs you are mistaking an 'essay' for a 'Hub'.
If I were you I would start by learning what a Keyword is and how to use it.
I must have missed those hubs that looked like essays.
All I see is blogging which is like an open diary really.
I save those posts for my blogs. Well, I did until I learned how to use keywords and SEO. Now I don't write them.
No-one wants to read someone's thoughts unless they are well thought out and relate to a subject they are interested in.
Let me clarify Izzala -
An essay is like one long run sentence that some call a blog.
But then again even on your beginner blogs If I remember correctly you did use some h2, h3 , h4.
I'm sure I sort of touched on those things in previous posts. Maybe not fully, walk before you can run and all that.
An essay is something you hand in at school.
Maybe US standards are lower.
An essay can be something you hand in at school or it can a fabulous treatise on the nature of the universe that changes the course of the history of ideas.
An example of both takes me back to my school days...
I had committed some sort of misdemeanour on a Friday afternoon and was called to the front of class. I held my hands up to receive what I presumed would be my six thrashings with the belt (corporal punishment was the norm in those days) - only to be told that I wasn't getting off that lightly. "Ten thousand word essay on the life of an orange, Hamilton - first thing Monday morning!"
In those days, pupils actually respected and feared teachers. My weekend was ruined! I wrote the essay and delivered it to the appropriate teacher on the Monday, who looked at me and said, "Oh, I'd forgotten all about that!"
What school did you go to??
I remember getting 200 lines which was hard enough. Funnily enough repeating "honesty is the best policy" 200 times did teach a lesson.
I still remember it, though I was never dishonest.
I just refused to tell the teacher who had carried out some minor misdemeanour when she was out of the room.
I ain't no grass!
I only got the belt once in secondary school but they outlawed it soon after. I don't really understand why. A quick slap across the hands is easier than being kept in after school or whatever punishment they thought up.
The life of an orange? 10,000 words???
Is that teacher still teaching?
That teacher is actually deceased, Izzy. He committed suicide - seriously! Though long after I left the school.
I had a few teachers who were whip happy. I remember one in particular who never kept his own belt. If he wanted to belt you, he sent you to the Rector to ask, "Can I borrow your belt please, sir?" Naturally, the Rector would ask why...
Our school had a rector too.
Perhaps unfortunately for him, his first name was Hector.
We never did take him seriously...
It's not difficult to understand why...
Our Rector was actually OK, it was some of his teaching staff that were sadistic psychos... To be fair, however, the majority were great. Funny how the bad minority are sometimes the ones that stick in your mind, isn't it?
There's a short story to be made out of this, Izzy... Hector the Rector and all. Too bad the contest is over.
Are you saying that your 10,000 word essay on 'The Life of an Orange' changed the course of human history?
I have often wondered, Will. If only the Web and its traceability had been available in those halcyon days...
If human history includes orange fanatics..
10,000 words? That's a short book. I think there might be a bit of exaggeration here?
People mostly use the net to find information so the easiest way to get traffic is to provide information.

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 been on a couple of days and pretty much all my traffic is from hubpages. I get a couple from digg but that is about it. How are people getting their traffic from google and other search engine?

There are tons of hubs on keyword selection and the various tools one could use to make the process easier.But, like most things 'net - they are mostly copies of copies of copies or poorly strewn together theories by...
