Can anyone help me to understand how to achieve a ranking of 4 on Google for a HubPages profile page? It is mentioned in this HubPages blog article "The More You Publish, the More Traffic Per Hub" by Jason Menayan and I would love to understand the concept.
You need to create backlinks to it on other sites.
Are you a member at any other sites? Check to see if you can list websites on your profile on those sites - if so, add your HubPages profile, with your tracker.
When you comment on a blog, you're usually asked to enter your name, email and website. If you have a Hub on a related topic, you can enter that as your website - otherwise, enter your HubPages profile URL.
Sorry girls, but as far as I can see you are both ranked n/a. I use SEO Quake which is a plug-in for your browser. Don't bother with it unless knowing a lot of info about websites - like their PR or how many backlinks they have etc is useful to you, because it slows down your online activities.
You can get the Google toolbar, and there is a little box that turns green when a site is ranked, and it gives you a PR when you put mouse over it. If it is not green at all, the site is not ranked. If you hover mouse it will say that the page is not ranked.
when I searched for "mega1 hubpages" I got my webpage in first listing, my hubpages profile in second place and some of my hubs etc. plus my profile at redgage. not that many would search for me this way, but it is interesting.
I was ranked number one by hubpages profile within two months of joining hubpages. My corporation ranked even faster, within two days once the copyright was added to my profile.
For the Corporation I am competing with a global mission, and for wheelinallover I am competing with off road vehicle enthusiasts.
The way I understand it the more you publish, make forum posts, and answer questions the more your information will get ranked by Google.
Before panda there were 200 results for searching my nickname. Its down to the thirties now. Some search engines use other criteria but I ranked #1 on the major three. My hub page profile has slid for the corporation but that is as it should be because my website now is at #1, For getting yourself there you might try what I did, copyright the picture you place at the top of your hub, only do this if it is your original photo though. I have invited all hubbers to take this number one spot but have had no takers.
As near as I can tell your page rank numbers change with the number of people who read you hub. I don't know if search engine hits make a difference but bet they do. Hub pages is very hush hush about how the whole system works.
The one thing I can tell you from my experience here short as it may be is people will read your article if the subject or title interests them no matter what the score.
The most hits in one day for me came from an article that was rated below 50. I can pretty much bet that if it hadn't been part of a challenge there would not have been as many hits though.
It's great that HubPages automatically includes rel=author on all our hubs pointing to out profile. But Google gives me an error message stating that my HP profile page has rel=author pointing to itself. This is not...
I have been monitoring my real time traffic for the past week. I have noticed that the active page is sometimes listed as "/". Does anyone know what that means? The last time it happened I checked and it was...
I just updated my HubPages profile a couple days ago and in my profile linked to some of my favorite hub topics that I wrote about. Is this bad to do this since on the profile page we have those same hubs randomly come...
As jimmythejock was quick to pick up on a few days ago (man, he's good!), we have been working hard on coming up with a new overall look and feel for HubPages and in the process we've also added a few cool, new features...
It would be useful to be able to sort our hubs into categories on the profile page. This would make it easier for readers to see what else is available in subjects that interest them, and also remind writers to work on...
