I only had one Squidoo lens to move over. I started a new account anyways. Barbara Kay is my old account here. Anyways, the lens had a #5 search result on Google and now is the #2 result. I hope everyone else sees an improvement like this. Some of you with lots of lenses will be making some good money.
Do you have your personal search results turned off. You might want to double check that using Firefox or Google encrypted search, just to be sure:
I did not know Google had such a search. A great thing! I was able to test it and find one of my hubs, using two search variations, showed up on page one. Anytime I am on page one I am a happy Hubber!
Google encrypted search shouldn't affect what results you get for your queries when searching. What it does is basically not allow the website where you click through to see which keywords you came from (it is basically a step direction privacy and and security).
I checked some of mine on another computer and they are ranking more highly as well
Kislanyk - Google personalizes results a lot these days. Encrypted search ought to stop even Google from knowing who you are. And yes - if Google doesn't know who you are, your search results will be (sometimes dramatically) different. Especially when it comes to rankings of sites we visit often.
I've been impressed with HP since the move as well. My best performing lens was getting 30-50 impressions per day, since moving over I am getting 100-150 per day, that is quite a significant boost
