So I wrote this hub about linoleum floors. It's my only hub about linoleum floors. I thought it was funny and I expected better results, at least in terms of hits. For whatever reason it's only enjoyed 105 visits over 4 months. Only one keyword is in the top 10 search results from Google; at position 3 down from position 1 a few weeks ago. None of the keywords are in any Yahoo top 10s.
Maybe it's just funny to me? I dunno.
put some of your keywords into the h2's (titles)
currently is ovation, history etc.
try Linoleum Floors: Ovation
History of Linoleum
prob the misspelled URl isnt helping and its a surprsingly competitive and high paying keyword - youll need lots of backlinks
there are 320 searched for the misspelling, you could probably outrank those competitors if you got some anchor texts w/ the misspelling
sure they will, your hub capsule titles are h2 html text
thats why i used the examples i did, maybe the " :" isnt allowed but that wad a mere example, just be sure to put keywords in those fields and not unrelatd text like "history"
Lawl, I have a Hub that didn't even get 100 views in about 8 months. I just posted one that shot over 150 in 4 days, go figure.
The only thing I've learned "for certain sure" on this topic is that I'm the world's worst when it comes to predicting performance by a hub prior to its publication. I find it encouraging, though, that every so often a hub which has languished in the DOVFV (Dungeon Of Very Few Views) for many months will suddenly burst into action.
Like you said, Thranax, "Go figure".

While browsing the forums, or reading a hub - I don't remember - I saw a title come up that surprised me quite a lot. I would like to know if it is supposed to be on HubPages, i.e. allowed, or not? I cannot say I was...

An issue with one of my hubs has been going on for a while. I wrote a hub a while ago that reached the top of page two in Google for certain keywords. After a few days in this position, it disappeared from Google search...

I hear the phrase, "mature a hub," a lot. What actually happens when a hub matures? I know people say that after a hub has matured (around six months) it starts to do much better. But what actually happens...
