I must not be grasping "Key Words" I had used google adwords to choose the best title and put in tags that were relevent to the subject (Differen't ways it could be searched). For all 7 of my Hubs I have only recieved 9 views from google (355 total). I had just started backlinking to increase my position on google, yet, I don't believe it has helped. Is it my material that is affecting me or just the tags?
Welcome to HubPages First of all, you are only 5 days old on HP. Give yourself a break and don't be so hard on yourself. Also, there's no such thing as a overnight sensation. We all started in the same place. Traffic takes time to build. Continue with the joining sites and build awareness of your HP site. You've got good articles.
NC: One of your problems is that your titles are way too common and thus have a ton of competition. First instance, you have one Hub called simply "Bike Trip". Google coughs up 326 million results for that keyword phrase, and an allintitle: search turns up 365,000 other pages with those words in the title. You're going to have trouble getting traffic for those keywords. Read up on long-tail keywords and how to pick phrases that have less competition.
Also, what Dame Scribe said. Don't be so hard on yourself. It's a learning process.
Thank you! I guess I miss understood the concept. I figured that since more people search for those key words that it would be better. and if I made it specific it would be searched for less. But, I am reading about "long tail keywords" which was great advice.
NC: After learning about long-tail keywords, you might want to try the Keyword Researcher -- http://keywordresearcher.org/free/
This tool is really cool for finding long-tail keywords.

When I read tutorials my head spins. So please give me an example using my topic: a recipe for baked salmon. If the title is "How to make Herb-crusted baked salmon", and I use the phrases "salmon fillet" "fish" throughout the hub, that's not optimizing right? Examples...

Hi guys,For a while I've been using Google's Keyword Tool to research high-paying keywords and their estimate monthly traffic. Normally, what I do is that I look for Low competition keywords with around 1,000 monthly searches, and less than a million results in Google Search, then I look at the...

Okay, maybe I'm being a bit dim here.I know what it *means* to do keyword research. I understand the basics of it. I know how important keywords are, and I know how to use them effectively in a white hat manner.However, I'm not having success, so I think I'm approaching the situation wrong. What...

I just want to make sure I am doing it right. When choosing keywords I choose words that are low competition with a higher Global Monthly search and a good CPS like 50 cents or more. Am I doing it right?
