Why does two year old hubs rank higher in search engine result, probably #1 on first page?
Probably because it's had time to get plenty of back links and is using plenty of keywords
As an article gets older, it has more time to get more back links, and that google 'crawler' thing, I do not know how to put it in words right now. But as time goes by, the probability of high ranking increases simultaneously, provided other things remaining the same.
For the first three months of any pages creation it is seriously limited in its ability to appear in Google, Yahoo etc. Once your hubs have been around for a long time, search engines start to provide them with more credibility based on a bunch of different factors (backlinks, alternate picture texts, bounce rates etc.)
Basically, the longer any website, article or hub is in existence, the more trusted it becomes with search engines
