    Just wondering how many Hubbers make use of the Title Tuner?  I just rediscovered that feature, and I think it's great.

      Hello Mary.  I have used it several times since arriving at HubPages three days ago.  So far it has not found any tuning needed. I was wondering if in fact it did work, so your question answered that question for me, as you apparently use it with positive results. smile  Thanks.

        Hi Dale it only works if you get search engine traffic. From what you say it seems you don't even have a single person coming to u from a search engine or if you do have them the keywords they type in are already in your hub title wink

          Thanks lobobrandon.  I have went and checked "My Traffic Sources" and you are right, so far, no search engine sources are showing. I write similarly on WP and the stats there do show search engine searches and traffic. However, most of my titles do contain the strong keyword or keywords used.

    I've been wondering this as well, so going to follow this and see what those who are using it think.

      I just replied to it LoriSoard.. I use it and it does work well. The google traffic increases I can't say the same about yahoo as I get hardly any from it even though I rank much higher there even rank #2 on yahoo can't beat #8 on google. Forget about beating cant even get me 1% of what google sends

    I wish it filtered out the pointless words.

    I have implemented a few suggestions it made, though.

    I have been using it for the last couple of weeks on my lower performing hubs, seems to have made a moderate difference to the traffic, just ensure that your title still retains some connection to what you have written, that our rework some of the content to match the new title.

    Is effective if you use it judiciously, but some of the suggestions could be hilarious!!

    Great tips on this tool. I'm going to try it on a couple of titles and see what happens. Always experimenting, it seems smile

    I just went and used it on several titles. Will see if the traffic increases on those.

    I occasionally use it and have found it useful.  I don't use it if it suggests changing the long-tail keyword in my title, though.  But, it will have some good suggestions sometimes.  Other times I can't help but laugh.

    I used it once for quite a lot of titles but haven't bothered since.

    I have used it but the way it is set up means you need to think about what the suggestions mean before you use them. Suggestions do not appear immediately as they are I believe based on search terms of incoming traffic so it takes a time to show for new hubs.

    I prefer to use a feature on the individual hubs, when I am looking at the stats on that hub.

    Using the stats on the hub I use the keywords part. Once/if I have some incoming traffic to a hub - then looking at what the keyword sentences and words people are using to find that hub is more useful to me.

    The reason I say this is the way the title tuner displays a % figure can mean that you can be misled by it, it is to do with how % appear/work- an imaginary example

    " wow, 100% for the word - matchstick" in the title - but sometimes that 100% is not a lot of people or one person who has searched that term.


    " OK, 50% for the word - smile "  OK then that might be worth using as it 50 people searching for that out of a 100.

    If anyone can tell me my take on this is not correct, I am always willing to learn something new about HubPages features.

    2uesday, I agree with what you said.  I like the "stats" feature found on each individual Hub, too.  The Title Tuner is helpful on older Hubs that have been found by search engines, I think.  You can't take it too seriously, just have to use common sense.  I can tell after I use it, I do get an increase in traffic.

    I use it -- but only ever when it keeps the title 100% accurate for the article, not just with "some connection"

      I agree, you want to keep the title 100% accurate for the article.

    I've used it too.  And I find that over time it may change the recommendations (probably based on what's trending in google searchs).
