I have Several hubs and an adsence account, Is there a way for me to see if my ads are being seen ? I've hade my hubs viewed through hubpages and facebook. But I've not seen any views from google on any of my hubs!!
The stats on individual hubs will let you know if you have any google views. One thing that will help is making sure your titles are more search engine friendly - think about what someone might type into a search engine to get the information you are offering.
Also think about breaking your text up into short paragraphs and adding subtitles - online readers tend to scan pages rather than sit down with a cuppa to read like they would a magazine or book.
Click on any individual hub, and you will see the STATS tab near the top left. Click on that and you get a list of where traffic is coming from.
If you want to know if Google sees it at all, type the title into Google. That will verify if it's being "seen."
The trick is going from "Google knows it's there" to "Google puts it on the front page for a specific set of keywords."
Which is what these other folks are trying to help you with.
You want to make sure the keywords you're using are rankable.
I suggest you use the free Wordtracker tool with Google Trends on it at:
You may have to create a free account to see the results. But click on the bars. Those are the Google trends. You can do 20 select searches per day, but each search yields tos of results.
You'll get a number and underneath it will tell you (<30,000 recommended). So if your number is over the recommended, competition is too high.
There's a second number that says Actual visitors from #1 in Google/Day. That's the number of visitors to that one link that's ranked in the number 1 position on Google.
That should give you a general guideline of what keywords you can rank for. You still have to measure the competition of the top 10 in Google, you do that with the free Firefox SEO tool or SEOQuake. You've got to check out page backlinks.
As for those clicking on your Adsense, hard to say. People who typically earn from Adsense have literally thousands of pages of content. Consumer products tend to get more Adsense clicks than self-help/info products.
You can use Adsense, but I recommend monetizing your Hubs with affiliate links as appropriate without sounding too spammy or overpromotional.
Thanks to all your comments I am understanding a little better all comments have been helpful.
Thank you all for commenting on this discussion. Maybe it will help other newbies as well !!!
Click on my account. Click on statistic and it will tell you there if your traffic to your hub is coming from Google or not. Good luck.

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some common threads in there. What content of yours is holding on to its ranking and...

I keep submitting my request to AdSense, which keeps denying me because of 'insufficient content,' but I have four substantial hubs published AND... ads ARE showing up on my hubs but I'm not being paid for them! Help!

I've found several of my hubs on page two of google (a few on number one ), but of course, I'm not satisfied with that! Am I just being impatient and they will move up with time?

I have been on hubpages for two months. I have read multiple articles on SEO and backlinking. Ninety percent of my hubs do not have backlinking. But I choose for a while to say no backlinking. It was "different" I thought and "original". ...
