Does anyone use SEOQuake

    I only had it for a day and I haven't had any views at all since I deleted it. Could it have screwed up my settings in here?

      HoneyBB, what is this device of which ye speak? (did my ease of using Old English impress thee?)

      HoneyBB, my question above is:
      What is this SEOQuake? My interest is at fever pitch.

      When I had SEOQuake hooked up to my account, it showed that most of my articles did not have AMP enabled. There is a new initiative Google is taking to speed up the load time for hand-held devices so I'm wondering if the reason our articles aren't getting hits is that they are taking too long to load on those devices. Will hubpages be adding this AMP to our articles?

    It is absolutely impossible for SEOQuake to make any changes to your settings on HubPages.

      SEOQuake is a Search Engine Optimizer that gives you data about whatever your page you're on such as where that page is ranked by google, alexa, etc. Thank you, Marisa, I never heard of it before and I was worried that I might have downloaded a bad thing and it messed up my settings. Amazingly I've only had one view in the past 15 hours or so. I wouldn't have been too worried about that but not knowing the SEOQ company made me question it.

            @HoneyBB,
            will a two-month supply of Rice-a-Roni be okay?

                Thanks. I'll be here all week.

    As Marisa said, it would have no impact on Hubpages.

    I find it useful sometimes, especially the diagnosis option to check competitor's SEO.

      Thanks WryLilt...I started to worried that this company whom I know nothing about was able to see everything I do on my computer and I wasn't sure if they were trustworthy and then when I checked my top articles and they are showing up on the first page of Google and my traffic came to an abrupt halt, I thought they must have done something. I didn't realize at first that lots of people are having problems. I still don't know why I'm getting no hits at all on 1 page articles, it feels like they are not getting through to Hubpages. One of my best page view articles moved from the 1st page on Bing but it is still on the 1st page in Google. It's mind boggling. I have had 1 view in like 24 hours and I think that might have been me...lol.

        Keep in mind that ranking #1 for something doesn't mean much if people aren't Googling that.

        However there has been a big update to Google algorithms, nicknamed 'Fred' which seems to have impacted quite a few rankings.

    How are you checking your results? Are you in incongnito mode when you see your page is on the first page of Google? I have a feeling you are not and if it is showing you ar eon the end of page 1 while not in incognito, it's very likely that it is not in the top 5 or even 10 pages in reality - for that search term.

      Would you google one of my top three titles and tell me if you see it in your results, Don't click on it, just see if it's in there.

        Yes you should up for the direct titles, but no one is going to type those in the way they are.

        But preparing kids for financial independence has no related search phrases from what I looked. So ranking high is not really getting you traffic because no one is searching. You should try using the free google adwords tool to get some ideas and modify your title accordingly. The articles on the whole are good, you just need to tweak to match what people are searching.

          Thanks so much...I have been getting decent traffic daily on my reclusive one and I have entered it in different ways that people might search and it still came up in good spots but Bing used to have it on the first page and it went away on there so I think Bing is who was giving all my traffic and when they put it somewhere else my traffic went away. I think reclusive people probably use Bing and not Google...lol.

      I went incognito putting in Why do People become reclusive and I was number 2...is it just me who sees me as number 2?

        It comes up number 2 when I google it too. I've noticed something similar with some of my best trafficked articles; they are still high up in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) but were getting less traffic. Traffic is picking up though.  I'm thinking it's a temporary drop in traffic or, as you were saying, possibly I was getting traffic from a different source other than Google. It occurred to me that I was getting internal traffic on the Hubpages sites, so maybe HP traffic generally had gone down and so I was getting less traffic from the HP site itself.

    Thanks Nate, Mine still keeps going down but I'm not so worried anymore. Your comment as well as others have eased my mind. I'm sure it will all get back to normal soon. As long as we write well and write with passion about things people want to learn about we shoud be okay.
