Just wondering, does it take time even for a site that contains good keywords (high epc & search history) to rank high on a Google search? I know how important these things are to getting traffic, but I'm wondering if it would show up on page 1 or 2 right away (if it's worthy) or if there are other factors, such as time in existence, that count...
I wrote a hub the other night with some advice form a friend on the key words and with in 8 hours I was 9th on the list for google. check out this site <snipped promotional link>
Here's some good info. Fact is, when you go on Google and search something, it is a well known fact that you probably WONT skip to page 3 or 4 in the searches. Google crawler takes time to crawl and index your page. Your PR will be based on not ONLY your keywords, but several other factors of which also includes your backlinks etc. This will tell google that your site is important and you will get higher PR ! Its everyones aim to land within the first 5 pages of Google.Do some good SEO and get as much backlinks from similar sites within the first 5 pages of google. There you go !
You're confusing Google Search Results with Google PageRank. They're two different things.
You are always going to knock me down arent you ??
I could have started with "Hopefully Rynaldos, I hope you don't throw another tanty" but I thought I'd give you a chance.
Obviously you don't take correction well.
Go and do some homework.
Google Search Results and Google PageRank are two different things.
If your only response is going to be another hissy fit, don't bother replying, as I'll be ignoring you.
I didn't realize that - can you please explain the difference between Google PageRank and Google Search results? What's more important? Thanks Darkside!
One of the main focuses on keywords shoudl be competition. Google only has 10 spots per search page so if you are using high competition keywords then it's going to take a whole lot more effort than writing a keyword rich article.
So you're saying that I want a keyword who's "green" bar does not fill the rectangular box for competition? Does what I just said make sense?
That's right plus you want it to have enough monthly search volume to even bother with.
Many websites that are on top of the search engine are not getting any clicks, or maybe one. I think it's more important to concentrate on your content and possible backlinks.
It is more convenient to be on top when you are running a business.
So I suggest you to write and not to worry.
Guess you're not interested in making money? I am definitely concentrating on content and backlinks, just trying to wrap my brain around the whole SEO/keyword thing...
Of course I am, two of my Hubs are already on top of the search engine. And I do use the SEO tips, but i've noticed a lot of visitors from other websites because of the backlinks, which gave me the first revenue. So I think is more like a multitude of things...
ranking is also judged by inbound links etc not just keywords.
I am new here, but I published a hub about Texas Tech recruiting and in less than 24 hours it was no. 4 on Google for "2010 red raider recruting" and no. 12 for "2010 texas tech recruiting". I simply wrote a rather lengthy piece breaking down each recruit, threw in any video I could find on youtube and threw in one image. Look up link-bait on hubpages and follow their suggestions to score high, especially in a niche market.
Google Loves Hubpages, i just hope the local contests to write multiple hubs havent attracted spammers who write low grade content. Im sure HP will figure out a way to slow them down,
Wow there are a lot of good hints and tips here to SEO i feel a hub comeing on then i looked and there are 10 thousand hubs on SEO lol
Thanks for all the great advice - when there's so much to learn, it seems reassurance, in the form of more learning, helps!

I've noticed that when I do a Google search that my Hubs show up in the search results without any date. I just made a change to one of my articles "What is Dave Chappelle Doing These Days". I made...

Lately, I've noticed some Hubbers Have Their Picture along side Google Search Results for their Hubs. How is this done? Seems like it may be helpful to entice people to click on a Hub link in Google.
