How did my hub appear on the first page on Google search one day after publishing?
I've published only 4 hubs so far and to my surprise, one hub appears on the first page of Google search the next day. I'm really curious. How did it happen? The other hubs don't appear though. I tried by typing in "fears of an immigrant" , my hub title and it's in the 6th position on first page. I've read all the hubs on newbie tips and tricks but can't remember all the facts yet. So I wrote what I had on my mind. Could anyone analyze the hub and tell me why? I hope that all the hubs appear on the first page, too. (greedy!)
It's because it's not a common phrase, not many people have the words used in that order on their websites and no-one has it in their url like you do. Unfortunately not many people will be searching for that phrase either, if people find your hub it will almost certain that it will be for other phases that you use in your hub.
Hilly is right ... On an exact phrase search I found 26 pages in competition for this phrase, all for an ad cost of a nickel (*sigh*), and the strength of the competition for this phrase is zero, so you might see this one climb to the top of the Google ranking within a month or two.
Unfortunately, it received less than 30 searches last month.
I wrote an excellent hub on keyword research that will help those interested discover better keywords. You'll find it here:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Yoshis-Hubbing- … g-keywords
While you can no longer change the URL, which would garner much more hits, you could change the title to something like ... 'My immigration to America', which would help, as the phrase 'Immigration to America' gets about 880 hits a month, pays a percentage of 1.04 per ad clicked, and has a relatively low strength of competition and 77,000 pages in competition.
Now, 77,000 seems like a lot, but through some good backlinking you could bump yourself slowly up the ladder over several months.
I'm going to write another hub on the importance of the keyword that should help, so be on the lookout for it..
Choosing a great keyword is very important when creating your hubs. I've checked your keyword on Google Adwords: Keyword Tool and I've found out that not much data can be retrieve from your keyword. In other words, not many people are searching for that particular keyword and not many marketers are targeting that keyword as well.
So, it will be easy for you to get into the first page of Google since HubPages itself has a very high Page Rank in the Google eyes. Plus, if you give a quality content based on that keyword, it will not be a surprise if you can get the TOP spot for "fears of an immigrant".
The most common reason that a brand-new Hub would appear on the first page of Google search results is because you are searching for it using a phrase that is highly-specific to that Hub. Another way of phrasing that is you are not using very average, common search terms to find it.
As you just said, you searched for it using the Hub's title, which is a string of words not used on lots of other web pages.
Different many factors determine a webpage's Search Engine position. In your case, I think you ranked for your hub's title for the following reasons:
1. "fears of an immigrant" is not a competitive keyword phrase
2. You searched using your exact title phrases
3. Since not a lot of people are writing on the topic (not competitive) and you searched your exact title, Google sees your hub as the most relevant to that search hence the first page ranking.
Try doing a keyword research on your topic and search other phrases you think people may be using to search for the information in your hub.
