Hi all, was looking at some of my hubs ranking in Google results page and funny enough, I have realized that one of my hubs in vertical site is listed twice in the search results of Google, one is on Hubpages and the other is on Dengarden.
The Dengarden one is listed #1 and the Hubpages one is listed #2 in the search result.
I am just wondering why could this be??
I don't know, but I think this is something that should be brought to the attention of the team because it means that you are competing with yourself...which is pretty weird! Is this the only article where this has happened? If so, it's probably a glitch that needs to be fixed.
I suspect the #2 ranking article at Hub Pages will drop off soon, and I think that if you click the Hub Pages link, it will probably direct you to the article at DenGarden.
It's still indexed on the Hubpages main site but is also indexed in its new location on the niche site. If people go to the Hubpages main site link they'll be redirected to the niche site. It takes awhile for the old link to get deindexed. I've had it happen, long time ago I noticed it too.
Google Search does just that; It looks for the specific words you type, along with numerous, what are called, Keywords.
So, it found your Hub itself and it found the exact string of Keywords you types somewhere else.
For this very reason, when I add a link to one of my Hubs somewhere else, I type a slightly different search title.
Yes Marie, it was so... the HP's link directed me to Dengarden's. Hope it will drop soon
Well, very few of my hubs have been listed in google results. I ve been in hubpages for over a year. Though i write quality articles with original content, my traffic has'nt been impressive.
Hi JvicIndia, I think a little improvement on your titles will do. Almost all of your hubs title are very long; you need to make them shorter and attractive so that you can get more click through on the search results.
He would do well to improve his grammar and punctuation too
Thank you. i shall be grateful if you could pls review some of my hubs and suggest other possible solutions. im sure my hubs are of great quality but the traffic is discouraging. Your help will be greatly appreciated
Just as Nate says, this is because it has just been moved I assume? Give it a few days and the HP link will no longer be there.

I published a hub a about three weeks ago, titled: "Defining My Purpose on HubPages: Aftermath of My Wars on HubPages Forums". I've written and published one more hub after that (it's still undergoing the site's quality assessment process) and I'm planning to write more hubs.I...

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.

Is it true that Google is inundated by billions of articles that it's suffering from a system overload, and unable to give quality attention to new and better written articles? Just imagine, the poor Google crawler had to sift through 14 million articles to come up with 10 results on page 1 for a...

It's an often asked question "Where did my hub go?", "Why doesn't Google love me anymore?" after celebrating a first page result.Source

I have been experimenting with Google to find new techniques to drive more search traffic and I found one that is quite silly but has doubled my traffic within about a week of updating my hub.Here it is: THE RATING CAPSULEIt's really quite silly, but I added a rating capsule to the bottom of my...

I just did a Hub and looked and it was listed in Google within minutes of being published!I know this happens, but I have seen Hubs take hours, weeks and days to get listed.I did something different, and I will try to duplicate it. IF it works, I'll let everyone know the technique I used.I know it...
