Within a couple of days, I have seem two of my transferred Squidoo lenses show up on the second page of Google search, with my Hugpages subdomain. I know that Google personalizes the search results for me (and for everyone), but nevertheless, it is encouraging.Both showed up for one of my long tailed keywords.
Is this perhaps an indication to hope that Google hasn't punished HubPages as severely as we thought?
Unfortunately, this happy news has not resulted in traffic. One of these hubs is about International Pancake Day, which is in February, so I would not expect that to generate traffic at this time of the year. The other one was about making a Sweet 16 Scrapbook. It is getting a bit of traffic, but not much.
On a different note, one of my transferred hubs has a hub score of 99 right now. That's the highest I have ever had -- and I have a pre-existing HubPages account with different hubs.
Congratulations! It is good to hear someone is doing well. I've noticed that my hubs are doing well as long as there aren't two of the same here. I think the competition has just gotten stiffer on both sides. As long as we have new subjects that no one else has written about, we'll all be fine.

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

The Most disheartening thing is pages that over take me in Google search are in fact advertisements and few sentence pages. In...

I noticed that 98% of my hub organic traffic is from google, why not from other search engines, specifically yahoo search engine and bing?

Does Google hate HubPages? I've never seen any search term return even a single hub in Google search results. Have you?

I just went to Google to search my URL (cardia.hubpages.com) to see how it ranks, and I noticed that articles and other things by another Hubber who has a really similar name to mine (she has an extra letter in it)is showing up, and not mine at all.I was just wondering if this would hurt my...
