What comes first when you decide to write a new hub


Do you use the adwords program to find key words or do you write and then find key words to fit your hubs topic?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
