How to find out whether you hub is number one in search engine?
I mean do I just go to google and type the title of a hub to see if it appears in the first page of google...or what?
Do a Google search for the keywords you've targeted in the article, or for keywords that are related to the article if you didn't pick any in particular. Typing in the exact wording of your title usually won't give a very accurate view unless your title was specifically created around what someone would type in doing a normal search.
Don't enter the exact title enter general terms.
If, for instance, I enter "SmartSafeTraveler" into Google my website will always come out on top.
But that doesn't really tell me anything because there aren't many people who would enter that as a search.
Even if I enter "Smart Safe Traveler" I won't get anything meaningful. I would have to enter "smart travel", "safe travel" or something like that to get any real meaningful idea of placement.
If you get a good number of visits from search engines that is an indicator that your hub is rated high.
It can be #1 for some keywords and not for some others that may be you wanted to rank for.
You can then experiment and try to tune in your article.
The best answer to this one is the empirical test. Here's to hoping you made it to the top
Oh hi! It's suncat. They know good stuff about Hubs
Exactly, that is exactly what you do. If you aren't on the first page of the results, then I'd suggest that you improve and expand the hub as much as you possibly can with pictures, text, links, and videos, quizes, maps(if possible), etc. Throw an amazon capsule in there, that couldn't hurt, it could only help. Then, you should start backlinking. If you've not joined SheToldMe, and/or BestReviewer, then those are the two back links that I think you should use, assuming that my advice is relevant at all.
It depends on the keyword you are going for.
If you know your keyword, just type it in google and it will give you the results. Then you can easily see where you are..
Be aware that if you are logged into google and have been to your site a few times, your site will pop up towards the top because google remembers which sites you like... So, clear cookies and log off of google before searching...
If you dont know the keyword you want... then keep reading..
The first thing you should do when you are starting a hub is target a keyword you know people are searching for. Use the google keyword tool and it will tell you how many people are searching for this term.
You want to target a keyword like "pirate birthday party costumes" or something that is specific, not a general term like "costumes", because you will never make it to the top (well, you could, but it will take a long time and a lot of work).
Then build your hub centered around that term, and others like it..
to improve your rankings, build backlinks!!! join some forums with dofollow signatures, shetoldme, and any other sites which allow you to post your site... there is lots of info on link building.. just don't pay for any..
Not necessarily the title of your hub, but the keyword you are optimizing and want to rank for in the SERP. Hub title might a long tail keyword that no one searches and no competition in the SERP, so it's really possible you will rank for it.
Instead, use the keyword term in typing in Google. The keyword you are optimizing.
Let's ask Hub staff for any information relating to this topic.

SEO experts....How important is it that URL matches title keywords?I titled a hub, partially typed and saved it. Then I decided a different title would be more appropriate and changed it. I just realized the URL (in the address bar in the search engine) keeps the original title. So my URL does not...

I have checked a few of my articles over the course of a week, not all of them but most of the popular ones, and I noticed that when I put them in Google search they only show up through another link such as Pinterest or Twitter. They seem to have totally disappeared apart from that. Any help you...

When I first started writing at HubPages I was under the impression that one should make the url and the first title of their hub the same.So my question now is: When trying to write the url for maximum traffic, how much should you really deviate on the main title? Or does it even matter if the key...
