      Maybe if your hubs were more original and not almost word for word copies from other sites, then Google might just give them some love.....jimmy

    Hi Girishsks- this happens from time to time, and there is little we can do to directly control where our Hubs rank in search results for particular keywords.

    My best advice for you would be to update your Hub to add more information and utility, and to look at the current results for the keyword that you're targeting to investigate why *they* might be ranking first and whether or not you can actually beat them (you might just want to try targeting an entirely different keyword in your title).

    Thank you very much @Simone Smith...
    Also just wanted to add that i had used "Title turner"  and changes the title as it said. would that may have caused the problem..

    Have you checked to see if the hub was "unfeatured"?

      It was not UN-featured. it still shows featured. there is another hub which was unfeatured and now it is again featured, but it does not show up in search at all. that's a different issue. don't know how many days does it take for the other hub to reappear in search.

    I would also make sure your hub has not been copied and pasted by a scraper.

    My advice for you is maintain the hubscore by participating in forums, answers and hubs from individuals.  As long as you stay/spend your time on on a daily basis, your hubs are likely to be shown in Google at good positions.

    Good luck

      Messing round on forums, readings hubs, etc etc DOES NOT have any influence on search engine rankings. Google is not in the least interested in personal hubscores nor scores for individual hubs.

        However the internal linking created by forum posts and replies to them might have some benefit since google does consider cross linking. The effect would be indirect since the links would generally be to one's profile, but it probably does not hurt.

    Thank you for all your insights. I will observe for few days.  i will try to check if i can get some back-links then may be Google will bring it back.

    My Google ranking with some of my hubs and my website will change from time to time. I have gone into hubs and made a few adjustments which has caused the ranking to return or to even get better. Maybe you need to do some tweaking. If there is a lot of duplicate content, however, there will be a problem with your ranking.

    To my surprise the hub is back on Google search on 3rd page. just checked
