    I put up a hub on 22 August about Hotel Pricing Policy and on 2 October  it is already No 1 on Google.

    No photos or videos. Not long by my standards. I would not even say it is one of my best hubs!
    I am just stunned!

      Hi Charles, I've written an article about this here: <link snipped - no promotional links>

        You can't link your own work on the forums.

        And "news" content quickly changes, meaning a hub that isn't evergreen is unlikely to draw traffic for long.

    Number one on Google for what keyword? How many hits a month does it get? Are you sure it's not just a new content bump?

    If you just put up this Hub in August, why does it have a comment from 8 months ago?

    Well spotted. It seems I put it up on 15 January! It talks about a future visit  to Amsterdam in February.
    I thought it was too good to be true!
    Thanks for catching this.

    Hi every one,

    I think so that google emphasises more on content so it would not be a strange for it to rank to no.1 for some unique idea. May be it would be a cheat sheet with the algorithm.

      I don't think that paragraph made any sense.

      Yes, content does come into play, but unless you know the keywords or competition, content isn't really relevant.

      And what do you mean cheat sheet with the algorithm?
