    Hi everyone. I am back to hubpages after being absent for a while, primarily because of schoolwork. I wrote up two new hubs, digital pen tablets, and free drawing a painting software, both meant to be rich in the necessary keywords to rank high in google for those long tail keywords. Problem is, they aren't showing up in the top 100 pages in google at all! I am doing all the steps I think are necessary to have pages rank high in google; submitting to URL directories, altering the hubs to correct mistakes and to enhance it, linking to the hubs on my other hubs, etc. but see no results. How long does it usually take for google to recognize and rank a page? A week? A month?

    Also, I want to have a lot of hubs, more than the four I have now. But with all the SEO I have to do on each new hub I create, I find myself having to focus on the SEO and then baby those hubs until I can see results from the search engines, primarily google. So, should I just go ahead and start researching more keywords and writing more hubs on those keywords or still focus on a few hubs at a time, making sure that they can rank high in google? What do you guys do?

    Thanks to everyone who responds smile

      Build backlinks: Check out the list of dofollow blogs and post comments there, also keywords should be in the url title and at the beginning of the hubpage.


      I disagree with frogdropping Keyword Density 4-5%. I think 10 to 12% is good In my opinion.

    I think yours is the best way.  If you keep doing it that way, you've established a good habit. 

    I basically write what I want to write about and then fill in the SEO stuff.  It's not the most profitable way but that's how I like doing it.  So far I'm on track to get that first $100 payout in about less than a year, which seems to be the norm.  If you are concentrating on making money, then you do have to pay attention to writing for things that people are looking for like, how-to's, reviews, and other information-related stuff.

      I use the above method and it makes for much more pleasurable Hub writing on my part.  And I do have a couple of Hubs which come out at #1 on Google for very simple and common search terms.  However they didn't do that right away, only after they matured for a bit.

        That's a comfort to know relache.  At the beginning I tried to write with SEO words in mind and I would come up blank, and if I did write, it seemed forced.  My creative flow seems better when I write spontaneously.  And I can always slip in SEO as appropriate afterwards.

    The SEO side of writing your hubs doesn't have to be difficult.

    Re your hub on digital pens. So far as I can tell, it's not indexed. It looks to be keyword stuffed. Whether that's accidental or intentional, I don't know. But you'd be better reducing the keywords down to a level of 4 or 5%.

    It has no do-follow incoming links - build some.

    If you need guidance, check out the likes of relache, Darkside, Mark Knowles, Lissie - in order to gen up a little more on how to write your hubs. Use the search box smile

    For direct SEO advice - Sunforged. And for backlinking - ryankett.

    And don't panic - four hubs down, you're learning as you go. It does get easier, once you identify a way to write that suits both your own style and what the search engines look for. Good luck smile

    Thanks for everyone who helped. I just spend a few hours and submitted by hubs to redgage, xommba, and shetoldme and I am hoping that will help with getting my hubs indexed and high on google search results smile. I'll make it part of my hub-creation routine to submit to dofollow sites from now on. Thanks again!

    *nods head* that is a very good idea FAW41 - something many of us wish we'd started doing when we'd only got a handful of hubs *noda again* smile
