Keyword Ideas for Psych Papers

    I have to write some research papers on topics and I would like to write the paper in such a way that would allow me to easily convert it to a hub. I won't write it around a keyword, but would like to have a keyword in mind so that when I convert it to a hub, the process will be much easier.

    Here are three topics:
    Locus of control
    ABC model (affect, behavior, cognition)
    Role of self-recognition in personal change

    Any ideas?

    Melbel, In case this helps any, one thing that comes to mind with all three topics, and particularly the last one, is emotional maturity.

    Latest research on reducing stress

    Here's what I have for kw research

    [locus of control]   18,100
    [emotional maturity]  2,400
    [abc model]           1,900
    [personal change]       880   
    [self-recognition]      720

    I think I'll do locus of control as the kw for one (or something like it to hone down the competition) and I'll definitely model one of the research papers around emotional maturity (probably the last paper on the list.) And then I'll do the ABC model, given that searches to "abc model" are people looking for the above ABC model and not other like-names models.

    Thanks for your help

    Your best bet is to go to google adwords (type it into google) and have a play around with different phrases you want to use, you will very quickly see what gets good hits etc. I use this tool religiously now before I even start writing my hubs. Good luck with your papers! smile

      That's what I did to get the above keywords. However, given the topic, I'm worried that if I'm too broad I'll be competing against universities and Wikipedia. If I'm too narrow, I'll get phrases that get like 12 searches a month.

    I wouldn't worry about competing against universities and the like, a hubpages article that's designed properly for seo I.e. with good keywords/keyword placement will rank above the university pages and probably even Wikipedia fairly easily. Definitely better to go for that. If it doesn't work you can always tweak it a bit!
