I don't compete with other site users, since I really have no idea what sort of traffic they are getting.
I do just fine competing only with myself. After four years, it's proven a very useful method.
As relache has said, I don't compete with other Hubbers either. What other people do or don't do on here is of no consequence to me with regard to how well I do. There's really no need to compete with other Hubbers, because everyone's collection of Hubs is as individual as each of the thousands of Hubbers.
Two people could write equally good Hubs about the very same thing, both of them could even end up on a Google-search page 1; and the success of each of those Hubs and Hubbers would still depend on other things that Hubbers, themselves, did in terms of writing quality and traffic. Besides, one of those Hubber could have written 100 other successful Hubs while the other may have written only 5.
As relache said as well, I only "compete" with myself.
a very interesting question. i don't do this actually but surely possible to some degree by analyzing their pages on google results for top traffic generating keywords and find the backlink resources and try to get these links & more as well. Even you do this, there is no guarantee that you will take their positions because the quality of content is a heavy factor.
ethically, i don't suggest such actions and agree with relache

As there are very few new ideas, I'm curious what you do when you encounter a hub written by someone else on virtually an identical subject?

This has been a problem for years now, really since the induction of the HubPages ad program and it's pretty much what has made me give on on HubPages (I used to write a lot, now seldom.)I have a hub that occasionally...

When I look at the questions section of hubpages I see pages and pages of silly questions. A lot of the time, when I click on "unanswered" or "latest" I see that the same person has asked ten or so...
