I assure you that the article will show up higher on Google search if you post it on Hub Pages. I have a blog that gets about 30,000 page views a month, but my hubs with similar key words rank higher.
Occasionally you will find a post or an article that says that you should not post on a third party site like Hub Pages. I could not disagree more. I would agree that you should not post all of your content on a single site. However Hub Pages can drive traffic to your site and raise your page rank as well.
I just noticed Stacie L's brilliant answer. There is a reason she has a Hubber rating of 96, she is completely correct. I would even say that if the post is less than 750 words, I would post it on your blog. Longer articles do better on Hub Pages.
