what do you mean? your hub pages profile name? I used to be dennisematt...I just checked that name and Justine76 I was the only result on bing for both things...so? why would anyone search my name besides me? hmmmm, maybe I should have thought of a more searchable but niche..y name?
I am not ranked very well because there is an NFL Football player with the same name as me and some other guy who was a military veteran that died in a war who even has the same middle initial as me. These 2 take up the first 2 pages of Google so for my name I am pretty much out of luck.
My Real Name - Google Page 1, #1 - #10 are all mine plus Google Profile at bottom. Page #2 #11 - #20 - All but number #15 are mine. Many of the top 30 and 40 are mine too... I Stopped looking at this point

there are 1,240,000 competitive results for my name! I have 17 "friends" with the exact same name in my facebook account.
But the very first result for my name is a LinkedIn profile that shows 6 results for my name, and I am one of them...so Im kinda the first result.
No real results until #16, where apparently I have created a subdomain for my my main hosting that bears my name (forgot!) and #21 is a twitter account that is for my Avatar movie campaign, apparently I registered a account with my actual name.

I have read many forums over the last couple of months on how traffic to HubPages has dropped considerably since July. After much investigation I believe to have figured out what has caused this drop (and I don't think...
