    Has HubPages Google ranking changed or improved now since Panda?

    What's the best way to find out the current Google status of HubPages?

    Definitely there has been a decline in the views of hubs written. But Hubpages has risen in its stature in Google search due to its continuous improvements and simplicity. I wrote a hub related to the Google Panda update. Below is the link for the same. Hope this is helpful.

    There seems to have been a slight increase in the way Google is ranking Hubpages. Hope it continues.

    The social aspects of Hubpages will help with Google rankings (comments, etc.), but the Panda update only changed an estimated 2% of search results as I have heard, so the difference really shouldn't be drastic.

    As far as trying to find out - you might want to check the traffic value? Its a little over 1.5 million right now, but I never looked at it prior to the update so I can't say either way.

    The subdomains that HP is now giving to everyone probably made a much larger difference than the Panda update ever did.

    Panda should help HubPages overall, but don't credit all positive traffic change to the update as it might have just been you.

    What was HubPages like many years ago? Has someone written a Hub about it? I remember reading somewhere that you could make a Hub and get excellent rankings in Google for loads of things. I am interested to know about the past and this website's history to more fully understand why there is so much talk.

    Is that why the Panda has got a black eye - from being implicated in Google's algorithm?

    We all have individual sub-domains now and they are ranked individually.
