Most Searched Keyword - Day 5 Update

Updated on October 4, 2011

Day 5 Ranking Update

Here's an update to my hub about How to Find Most Searched Keywords for your Hub Page.

Background:

On May 15th I published a hub on finding keywords for your hub page. In addition to publishing the page, I also posted a bookmark to Xomba, Snipsly, and She Told Me on the very same day.

Today on May 20th, I checked Google to see if and where my article ranked. If you look at the picture above, you can see I typed in my keyword phrase, "Most Searched Keywords" into a Google search page. Low and behold it is ranked #32! You can see from the top arrow that it is on the 4th page in the 2nd slot. For those who don't know, page 1 is #'s 1 to 10, Page 2 is #'s 11-20 etc. I am on page 4 so the rank is #32.

Now that is not on the money page. The money page would be a top 10 ranking but it is a pretty good number for getting indexed and ranked that high in just 5 days.

I took a quick look at the hub page hits report for this article and the majority of the traffic comes from within hub pages. I would expect that to change once I get closer to a top 10 ranking but time will tell. Check back for my next update.

Most Searched Keyword - Day 5

Results

Today on May 20th, I checked Google to see if and where my article ranked. If you look at the picture above, you can see I typed in my keyword phrase, "Most Searched Keywords" into a Google search page. Low and behold it is ranked #32! You can see from the top arrow that it is on the 4th page in the 2nd slot. For those who don't know, page 1 is #'s 1 to 10, Page 2 is #'s 11-20 etc. I am on page 4 so the rank is #32 for the search term "Most Searched Keywords".

In the Money?

Now to answer the most relevant question, have I made any money off this yet? Probably not because this is not on the money page. The money page would be a top 10 ranking but it is a pretty good number for getting indexed and ranked that high in just 5 days.

Next Update

I took a quick look at the hub page hits report for this article and the majority of the traffic comes from within hub pages. I would expect that to change once I get closer to a top 10 ranking but time will tell. Check back for my next update.

Final Thoughts

While these results suggest that the method may have some merit, certainly, some of the credit goes to Hub Pages itself. With such a high PR ranking and their commitment to policing the articles for quality content, Google thinks pretty highly of what gets published here.

I am still cautiously optimistic but like I said before, time will tell!

      @PurvisBobbi44 - Thanks for stopping by. Glad to help. If you are going to spend the time writing and publishing, it makes sense to do a little research to see if you can do a couple things to draw in more traffic. Best of luck to you and your writing experience.

      Thanks Tom T, I am happy there are Hubbers like you and others who can inform new Hubbers how to get traffic to their hubs. Thanks again, and I will use this for sure.

      Jon Hunt - Well it helps to be #1 for a high demand keyword. If by Lincoln...you mean the coin, you may be right...

      My site is Number One for "pocketchair british" and "pocketchair tony blair". I guess that means all I have to do is wait and watch the lincolns roll into my wallet, right?!
