Surely it depends what you search for?
However, out of my hubs which I actively track I have at least 15 hubs on the front page of Google for my targeted keyword so in effect over half my hubs are on the front page of Google for the targeted keyword/main keyword (many times I haven't targeted a keyword but the hub is on the front page for this particular keyword). For example for the keyword 'Cribbs Causeway' (it's a place in the UK) my hub also titled Cribbs Causeway ranks in position number 4 in Google.com and number 5 in Google.co.uk.
However, as can be seen, I rank higher on Google.com than for Google.co.uk (Hubpages is an American site) and since many of my hubs are on UK based topics I probably miss out.
Bristolboy do you live Bristol uk or America? I am uk.
Just realised the original question was also for Yahoo. When Yahoo is used I have even more of my hubs in the top 10 (at least 20 of my 28 hubs). I have always found that hubs rank higher, quicker, in Yahoo than in Google (although there are exceptions for myself where the hubs rank higher in Google - particularly those with lots of backlinks).
Two that I know of. I have a couple also on the front of Comcast's search engine.
I have many but the best one which is not only on first page but is first search result is "what is delegation". Type this on google and check. I wrote this hub 2 years ago.
No idea. I'm too lazy to look. Anyone want to waste five minutes, then come back and tell me ...
And those of you that have got to the first or second page - bloody well done!
An easy way to do it is to use a program called Rank Checker. All you have to do is type in the keyword and website and it will be able to give you the rank for a large number of different search engines.
well has help me find out my one hub in google. His done good favor for me but his out now and back later.
I have ten or so of my hubs on the first page of Google and Yahoo a few more for the keywords I targeted. I have one of my videos at number one also and as a tip to help your hubs get a higher ranking here's what I do;
Keyword target your campaign
Produce a video for youtube using the longtail keyword
Tag the video and use the keywords in the title and description
embed the video into your hub
add the same tags to the hub and a similar title
This should get a lot of early traffic to your video as google likes videos and your hub will tag along happily behind!
Hope it helps
By the way, the video I have is just for fun but a Google search for the term "The coffee house letter by Mike Dillard" should show it at 1,2 or 3 if you want to see what I did..
I have one for the singer Lidia Guevara that has done better than her own official site and her Myspace and Facebook sites and often is top of the search results for her name! I think that is my best result!
Isn't that great when you top the person's own site? That would make an interesting hub challenge I guess - 30 hubs about 30 high profile celebs in 30 days with the intention to get them all on google's front page...
Maybe something to think about.
Well that is not a bad idea to create a hub about celebrities.
I'd be concerned about libel, and copyright on pictures.
Well I have Peaches Geldofs Tats on the front page but she said it's ok as her tats are always on the front page
I have one hub that is ranked in yahoo as #7 (first page) and another one of my hubs is at the top of page 2 in yahoo (#11) In other words, it's number 11.
I'm still crossing my fingers for Google.
And of course my Johnny Depp hub is number 2 on Google, those ladies deff love Johnny as it gets loads of views daily !
Man, that guy never ages! I remember when the chickies were going gaga for him when 21 Jumpstreet aired!
Hey where's the Johnny Depp avatar? I love the most recent one from the Pirates of the C series.
Seriously, does this include those key phrases (as opposed to key words)?
I have found putting good phrases in the summary text helps, in the Peaches Geldof and Johnny Depp ones I totally loaded the summary text panel with key phrases and it seems to have worked.
mine i don't know. Can anybody please tell me if i have? hehe thanks
Yer hub " The song that touched my heart " is at number 3, here check it out !
http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&am … &meta=
See ya all later
Okay, if I use key phrases then I have around 3 in the first page of google. Thanks Badco.
Many of my hubs are on google page 1, however, it depends on the keys words they are searching for and how much competition is out there. I find that posting videos on your hub also helps your ranking along with time.

LOL I had to reply to this. I was waiting for Isaballa to do it, but I am happy to oblige.1. There are only 15000 results for that search term2. This is possibly the most patronising thread I have seen on the forums.3. This is not the place to promote your poorly punctuated, lacking in content,...

I got this hub up to 91 rating. I'm trying to get traffic from Google so that people see it. I had a success on Reddit which brought a lot of traffic to it. I was able to get 20 up votes on it. Everything is good about the hub from Hubpages perspective.1. good...

So I got to wondering why my one particular hub is getting SO much traffic. I went to google to search on my title and there it is on the front page. WAHOO!!!

Don't mind me, I'm just excited. Finally, I made my first 50 bucks and found one of my hubs on page 1 of Google search results. Happy times, these.

I know the more exposure we have, the more chances for page views. That is not what I am asking about here. I am wondering if we are effected by the quantity of hubs over the quality of maybe a smaller number of hubs.I am looking to delete more older hubs (seasonal in a way) to help boost the more...

Twice I've had a hub land on the front page of Google. Actually one still sits there today. I intended it to be a backlink for my webpage. My webpage can no longer be found, but my Hub is yet standing firm. Can anyone explain this phenomenon?
