I just did my 10th hub and found out that my latest hub is listed on PAGE 1 of both Google AND Yahoo (numbers 3 and 2 on page one to be exact!) My first hub to be listed so high!!!!
Is there a place for hubbers to post such good news and give hope to other newbies or to even let HP know about stuff like this and how thankful we are when we hit such milestone marks?
Yes, here! You are in the right spot!
You could also post this under HubPages community.
This is a good question. Bear in mind Google "personalises" your searches, so what you see is not what everyone sees. Because you've been looking at your own Hubs recently, Google will present them on your first page of results, but that doesn't mean much I'm afraid.
And then there's the sad fact that pointing out the success of a specific Hub often leads to the creation of knock-offs as people spin their own version based on yours.
Nice work! I did find it on page 1 also. It looks like an informative how to hub.
The forum can be a great place to post successes, but don't be too specific, like relache said.
Yup very true. And be very careful discussing earnings. Last year when I discussed earnings my HP account was hacked and my PayPal diverted. Jason from HP helped me out quickly but it shook me up. No more discussing earnings for me.
Not to scare you but there are some unscrupulous people out there.
Thanks everyone for your posts - I LOVE getting all the "pearls of wisdom" from more experienced writers such as each and every one of you and will use the information going forward to better my talents.
Please feel free to give me any feedback - good or bad, as I really want to continue to grow in this genre.

Hi folks. I use the AdSense direct implementation, rather than the HP earnings program on HubPages. Over the last couple of days I have noticed that the number of clicks and my earnings have increased very dramatically...

Currently, HubPages earns 40% of ad revenue from hubs, giving users 60% of ad revenue. As a writer, do you feel like you should receive a larger piece of the pie?Would this increase your article output?I feel like I'm...

A few days ago, I noticed that a lot of people were talking about changing from HP Ad Program to Google AdSense. I had tried that a few years ago, but switched back pretty quickly because I earned better with HP....

I am puzzled because even when my traffic gets a bit better (low for some, but still good for me right now), my CTR rate for Google is almost always nothing. I get something from Google about once a month, if that, with...

First, please forgive me if this has been asked a hundred times already. I've tried searching through the forums, but without a better search feature, it's difficult to find out if someone has already asked about the...
