Allow me to explain what I mean by this. Hubpages is a popular and high ranking article site,,,,, on the front page. However it then gets split into many different categories and subjects, hundreds of them.
Let's say you make a hub about pink bubblegum. You put that hub in the right category, then add 10 high backlinks to it. The hub itself immediately does not rank too high by itself.
But lets say you have a blog that is all about pink bubblegum. Instead of making a hub you make a blog post, same text and add the same 10 backlinks.
That article should rank very well immediately because it's on a site that already ranks high for pink bubblegum.
Sooooo, would you still get more traffic from a hub because hubpages ranks high overall, or would you get more traffic from your blog post because the whole site is about what your post is?
If it's an already established blog then it depends on how many links that hub already has coming in and how high it is rated by google. If it is a new blog and just has those 10 links then you will do better with the hub.
I don't really care which ranks higher. My goal for certain keywords is to own at least 6 of the top 10 spots in google. Since google only lets two pages from any site into the actual listing for any search, I have to have at least 2 Hubs and 2 other sites rank highly.
Sometimes I have the hubs come out on top and sometimes I have the blogs or websites on top. I don't think it's possible to fine tune rankings that well.
For keyword rankings that I check daily or several times a day, they change constantly these days.
Hmmm, maybe I did not explain myself right. What I mean is, is it easier to own those keywords as you say with a hub, or with your own blog articles if you have a blog that deals with that subject your writing about?
wow, you really try to dominate the search results don't you? I usually go for just one page, and then another few for very slightly different search terms, even if that just means adding an s on the end or a the at the beginning.
