Do you use the adwords program to find key words or do you write and then find key words to fit your hubs topic?
sort by best latest
This has been my experience too. How weird. I do use the adwords program but like you. My most successful hub ever has just one phrase. 'This site has insecure content'. The way searchers find it is also incredible. The searches seem to be random?
I tend to do a bit of both. There are so many search strings out there that I usually find something that works. Although having said that. I have spent hours looking for the right keywords.
I too only use a couple of keywords now. Too many keywords, I think confuses Google as it tries to figure out what is relevant.
I agree. I have had the same experience. I too have many hubs waiting for a few keywords. As time goes on it is becoming a lot easier.
so do I but I am dismayed by the huge number of Zzz's on my hubs
Me too, Samson. I just write whenever and whatever I'm inspired to. I didn't know about the Keyword Tool. I'll have to find it and check it out. It may be helpful for me.
It can take a little effort to get our heads around the Adwords program and I have written a hub on the very topic. I tend to write what I am interested in too.
There are billions of searches every month. There is usually something usable.
I think you have the right approach. I do the same.
I am sure that we all agree with you on the sheer joy of writing. It is even better if we can see that people like what we produce. Keywords just help to get the hub to people that are interested in the topic we have written on. It's just targeting.
Molo....I know what it's all about and what it's for.....I just can't concern myself with it....or I'd never write. I'd be stressing whether or not I'm promoting properly to my eventual Fame! My dog already tells me I'm famous.
Your fame is worldwide already lol. Most of the time none of it seems to work anyway. Or Google changes the rules.
ha ha you had me at Grist! must dash off and read up on your DANELAW work. I did the whole sub division too but since the new profile has appeared they seem to have gone. I do have a copy of all my hubs so that I can tie them in too.
lol that would make some kind of sense in the days before Panda. Apparently now Google can figure out what our hubs are about merely from the title, the odd key word and a short summary? As if!
So I am being dissed by an algorithm? Good lord, well no wonder...I better start writing short summaries, finding odd key words (I'm thinking snivel), and start writing titles that don't require a panel discussion about what it might mean. lol.
