For Mr. Deeds!
Do our pageviews from inside hubpages (people not entering via google, etc) affect our google ranking at all? Does it help in the same way as backlinks or searching/entering from google would? Or do those clicks have no effect at all?
I do not believe traffic of any kind will directly affect your google ranking (although I suppose it is possible they use traffic data collected from the google toolbar to influence search results).
However, traffic is likely to raise your HubScore which will improve your hubs internal positioning across HubPages -- which in turn could improve your google ranking. Also, for every reader of your hub there is a small chance they will decide to link to your hub from their site. So, over the long run the more traffic you get (and the more interesting or high quality your content) the better your chance of getting what are known as "organic back links". Organic back links are a very good thing.

I'm sure some of the real search experts lurking on HubPages can elaborate further.
I think if you get significant traffic to you hubs from relevant websites and particularly ones with a high page rank then this is beneficial to the ranking of your hub in Google.

Just wondering, does it take time even for a site that contains good keywords (high epc & search history) to rank high on a Google search? I know how important these things are to getting traffic, but I'm wondering if it would show up on page 1 or 2 right away (if it's worthy) or if there...

I have multiple sites that haven't moved a bit. They're still on the same page, at the same rank, for the same key words. The traffic for those hubs, particularly one, is down over 80% though! Any thoughts? It's never been this low for those sites. I would understand...

What is the best way to determine your Google ranking?Everyone mentions their Google rankings and I'm not really sure how they find them. Do you use your exact hub title to search Google?

I have another account on hubpages that contains an article that was on page three for its keywords. A few days later it jumped to the top of page two. The next day, gone. I can find it by typing in the exact title, but nowhere to be seen for the keywords it was doing so well for. I've not edited...
