When I checked it say page 1 About 1,900,000 results (0.22 seconds)Does that mean I am on the first one on page 1 out of 1,900,000
Where did you check? If you simply type your keyword into Google, you'll usually see your content in an incorrect position - Google keeps track of you by location and search and visiting history, meaning it's aware you visit Hubpages a lot and will likely put those pages higher.
To correctly check your rank for a particular keyword there are plenty of tools including:
-Market Samurai will check your site/page position for particular keywords and compare position over time.
-Free sites like http://www.tools4google.com/search-goog … acking.php
-Typing your keyword into Scroogle, which searches Google results without following your history like Google does.
