One of my hubpages has had 2nd ranking in Google since pretty much the day i created the hub. All of a sudden it is no where to be found on google, this is about 4 month later, and it hasnt been flagged or anything by hubpages, the traffic has remained steady and i havent made any wierd changes to it.
Has anyone got any idea why this can happen?
There can be a number of reasons. Have you changed the tags?
Google also likes articles that are updated or edited occassionally, even if it is comments at the bottom.
Even then, if you edit the article.... you could be taking out the line of text that google liked the most.
Maybe the pages that are now on the top of the page are newer, have been edited or updated, or are just getting a lot more traffic then yours?
Just a few ideas, what you really need is an SEO expert?
Absolutely nothing has been edited in the hub, thats why i was suprised to see it happen.
I have gone through you hubs and these are listed on google 1st 2nd and also in 3rd page.It depends upon the traffic and keyword used. Just check the key word. You need to post more and more and more.......... your in hot hubs
If the traffic has remained steady it means you weren't getting any traffic from that search term anyway.

For Mr. Deeds! Do our pageviews from inside hubpages (people not entering via google, etc) affect our google ranking at all? Does it help in the same way as backlinks or searching/entering from google would? Or do those...

I was really excited when some of my hubs were awarded Editor's Choice, but it seemed to make little difference to number of page views to those hubs. However, getting two HOTD has been great! One of my HOTD was also an...

Did I get lucky or what? The only problem is that there is not much traffic. I spent a lot of time with Adwords Keyword tool, and I bought an SEO book by Michael Miller and asked a lot of questions in the forum. Thanks...
