Hi, My hubs are not the best hubs ever but some of them rank for a few keywords..The weird thing is My hubs get better positions on Yahoo search results than on Google for the same keyword.
My hub about : When do babies talk
is on the first page on Yahoo (9th position)
but on Google I can't find it in the first ten pages of SERPs (didn't go further)
My hub: What is a morning erection
is on first page on both but:
FIRST position on yahoo, third on google!
and also this one :
How to prepare for an earthquake
is on the FIRST page on Yahoo
But on the SIXTH page on Google !
NOTE: The keywords are the same as the titles
Does any one have an explanation???? You know that Google is more important...
Yahoo's algorithm works differently from Google. But it is actually a good thing to get Yahoo traffic - I find that when I have a surge of Yahoo traffic I get clicks on my Adsense. Google traffic is more savvy and less likely to click in my experience
thabks for the reply,
I didn't really notice the difference in the clicks bcoz I get cisits from both of them...
Interesting, isn't it?
any ideas, guys? Is it about backlnks really? so isn't yahoo counting on them or it has another PR for sites?
Google takes time, and backlinks, try to digg your hub using the relivent keywords and then give it 12 hours and go back and check google. You should see a change in your google ranking, If not ill eat my hat, sorry eat my coat have not got a hat. LOL
Both of the engines take results from Dmoz however both display differently and Google use there own ranking system and yes with Google backlinks really matters. However social bookmarking sites like digg twitter offer you an excellent way to generate backlinks. forums and blogs to. I am at number 1 spot within google for "keywords for maximum return" I got this spot within 12 hours of posting the hub just shows that with a digg and a twitter its amazing how fast you can actually start to generate traffic from google.
I can't find any of hubpages in the 1st page of results in google ever!
I am so damn confused and overwhealmed. I wish someone would write a primer for idiots like myself who need to learn the basics of SEO, etc. Backlinks, Diggs, Twitters, page rankings, etc. My head hurts. Probably explains why I've written a bunch of hubs and made like $.11 on Adsense.
I put relevant keywords in since that is how people will be searching for articles. Not many people would be looking for the hub title in Google. My page rank is better, of course when I put in the exact title, but a bad representation of how people are really searching.
I just Googled "Spa Salads" and my hub on Easy to Make Mix and Match Spa Salads came up on first page - I assume this is good??

I don't even see it on the first several pages of Yahoo. I only posted it 5 hours ago, so maybe it hasn't picked it up yet?
How do you guys check to see if your hubs come up on the engines? Just type in a few keywords, or the title, or what?
The main words relating to an article always work. For example if you have a page about space, your keywords will be space, but also possibly stars, planets, etc. However, that doesn't account for people who search for werid phrases. The best way to see where a lot of your traffic is coming from is to use analytics, and then you can see the keyword used when searching. For example, I have a hub on renewable energy, and one of the top sources of traffic to this is people with searches that include the words 'body, kinetics, renewable, energy'. In this case I am top of the search engine rankings for this term (and second) and so get a lot of traffic from this, whereas I am no-where near the top of the search engine rankings for the term 'renewable energy'.
Interesting observation here bristol boy, i have had the luck of featuring on the first page of google and yahoo too but the keywords seemed to be associated with the main keyword as well. Ultimately what you desire is what counts, currently being on the first page gives me a high and in course of time if i earn of it wouldnt that be a feeling worth celebrating.
BristolBoy, thanks. That was really useful information. I have signed up for analytics, I just don't tend to use it. I'll start so I can see where the traffic is coming from.
In another forum post a while back, someone said google Analytics was a waste of time because you can get all of the same info from HP. Is that true?
The person whose comment u read over there in that forum was real waste of your time. Thats what i can reckon, is "Sheer TRUTH"
GA is worth much much more than for which is available right now i.e. Free
Free things are not crap always.
Diamonds are mined from filthy places
Hope that helps... If you get time... read my Series of hubs for SEO and more traffic... u will get an idea atleast
Cheer and Enjoy hubbing
Yahoo can be very easy, and Yahoo can be very tricky. They do have a fair amount of human intervention in their listings. But traffic is definitely more lucrative
I agree on that mention about gettin clicks. I get more from my Yahoo traffic than others.

Do you have any hubs where your Yahoo search traffic is more that all the Google searches combined (thats Google with different domains (TLDs))? I have a few, although not many.
