Increasing pagerank...

    Hi guys,

    It's me again... Today I have checked some of my hubs' page rank and they shocked me... Most of them are like at page 15+ at Google... I know they are quite new, but still... So, the question: is it possible to improve the page rank from, for instance, page 15 to at least page 3? Or should I give up, forget those hubs and write new ones? Now I cannot get any traffic from Google because nobody checks 15 pages in Google. Because of no traffic, I cannot increase the page rank. It is like a closed loop... What would you recommend to do? Or maybe I should not be worried because it is normal? Thank you for answers.

      Much of how a Hub performs in search is related to the competition for the subject and keywords.
      I reviewed your Hubs and for the most part, they appear to be about subjects that are thoroughly saturated online, so they will have a large amount of competition.

      You may find it is easier, from an SEO stand point, to find a niche in which you can be competitive. Many successful authors select a subject or subjects for which they are passionate (hobby, profession, etc.).

      I agree with Matthew, competition has a lot do with it. You can definitely get on the first page of search engine results if you write a very good article for low competition keyphrases.

      Edit: Also, it can take at least a couple months to get on the first page of results. Maybe longer. Again, of course, depending on competition for keyphrases.

      Analyze your articles with some of the free SEO checkers available online. Try to include several two- or three-keyword phrases in each article to expand their appeal in search results. Emphasize phrases with at least three keywords because so many of the two-word phrases are swamped with competition.

    You are fine when right now you are on Page 15. Update it regularly and before you know it you'll get to the first pages.

      I don't agree with aesta1's theory/statement at all.  Based on my experience, the topics you've picked are so saturated, that will never ever happen.

      These days if you do not offer your reader information and ideas that cannot be found anywhere else on the internet, you do not gain any ground with readers or the search engines.

    Thank you for your answers. I guess I have to wait now.

      Yes, just wait and see what happens with those hubs. You've only been here a few weeks so give them time.

      Meanwhile, write some new stuff!
