My Hub is Now on Google's First Page!

Updated on August 29, 2009

It Only Took A Few Hours

Today I decided to publish a hub about a turtle's ability to live forever ( After writing about this topic, I submitted my hub to Stumbleupon. A few hours later, my hub appeared on the first page of Google (provided that you search "Turtles Can Live Forever" or "Turtles Live Forever"). This was very exciting as it was my first hub that made it to Google's first page. How, you ask? Well, I think my hub made it mostly because when you look us "Turtles Live Forever," there are only 465,000 results. Still, to be 6th out of 465,000 is pretty awesome in my opinion. I am already starting to get traffic from Google and hopefully this will continue. Furthermore, I hope to get some of my other hubs on the first page of Google as well. This makes me think that if you write about a unique, less searched for topic, you can draw in more traffic initially. Anyways, I hope this serves as either an inspiration or just some good advice to you hubbers.

      Congrats! This is a great thing... I don't know how many of my Hubs are on the first page on Google, if any!

      dohn121: I sure hope you're right. To be honest, I haven't seen any Google Adsense revenue yet. Nevertheless, I will be patient and hope for the best. Thank you for commenting!

      As you already know, Marshall, I've read your turtle hub and really liked it. Congrats on that! You should be seeing a definite rise in traffic and Google Adsense revenue. Great job!
