Hey fellow hubbers,
I am no expert at this but I might have discovered a white hat legitimate way around the Panda disaster Google laid on a lot of us unsuspecting, non spamming, hard working online, needing income content producers.
Here it is!
If you have a wordpress blog, I think Blogger blog works too, post your well optimized, good content, hubs to the wordpress or blogger website (they have a great domain ranking, even if your blog is new). Wait one or two hours and try some of your top three keywords and I bet you find them ON PAGE ONE of Google.
Give a try and let me know, please, if this works for you. I have 5 hubs on the same topic - broken into sections by alphabet - and all 5 have singe or double red marks within 2 hours on my hub pages statistics.
Fingers cross, hope it works for you too.
This is common when publishing new content... for it to be way at the top in Google. However, within a matter of hours, it will sink down to the bottom and take a long time to rise up.
If it's the same content that you already have here on HubPages, it may never rise up to the top. If it's dupe content, it's grey hat, at best.
Let me know how your content performs in a few days. I would love to hear more. Best of luck fighting the Panda.
What I've found to be the best remedy is flagging stuff that doesn't belong here. A lot of junk content is weighing us down. It's sad to see HubPages first going after really prolific hubbers with minor hub issues than junk writers who contribute nothing to the community who have hub scores of like 5, 14, and 29.
Why penalize someone for a minor issue with an ad with a hubscore of like 80 something, when there are so many hubbers with hubs that are SERIOUSLY content that has been copied from other sites or just a bunch of nothing. Ah, but this is a topic for another thread.
Best of luck! I'll keep an eye on the thread to hear how it goes.
I believe it's good content and definitely not spam. It's bounced back and forth for hub score between 70 and 80 and is in the middle now. I discovered that the keywords were just not correct. When I made these hubs I was not as knowledgeable about using the google keyword tool. Yes, lets see how they do and I will update the thread.
I agree with your comment about limiting or at least not prioritizing the penalizing hubs with scores above a certain value. I would think since 75 author score is considered good enough for HP to promote that would be a fair point at which to cut some slack on minor issues,as long as the content is not cut and paste duplicate.
It has been about 2 days since work was done on these hubs.
Five hubs in this "series".
All five have risen at least 5 hubscore points. All but one are now more than 75.
Three of the five are still double red triangle traffic increase.
Let's see what they are doing this time tomorrow.
The term I hear most often describing this sudden jump-and-drop in ranking is "the honeymoon period".
Are you posting a link to your hubs or republishing the hub content?
If you write something that is so good that people like it enough, they will pass it on to others (not just other Hubbers either). Then it will naturally rise in the rankings. Write good content. Post good backlinks and put it out there on Reddit, Digg, etc and see if it catches on. People complain about changes made as if they are the evil ones for trying to stop people from gaming the system.

We all appreciate that it's our own responsibility to protect our own work, but it's a big job, and it's in HubPages interest to help us, because plagiarism affects the whole site's income.On another thread, there have...
