    Has anybody ever checked to see how our hubs are indexed in Google?

    I put some of my hubs in Google search to see if t not hey were found. The interesting thing is that Hubs, regardless of author are listed on pages together.  Every listing was  Hub by a hubber.  This is certainly not the way our blogs, sites, or articles from other sites are listed. So I guess searchers have to search for hubs like this: dating hub pages, otherwise we are missed. No wonder our views are low.

    I think if the keywords for the hub are in the article and all the seo options are used it will get indexed for the keywords people type into google. I have a hub that is ranked in the top 3 for a few keywords related to the hub and other than writing the hub I did no other type of promotion. It just got picked up by Google and was information for what people were looking for. Check it out for yourself, type into google: how to make iced branches. The hub comes up #3 on google. Great traffic especially around this time of year. Ranked #1 for: how to make winter wedding centerpieces.

    I did a Google search for 'inane hub' and three of my inane hubs were entries 1,2 and 3 in the results.  It's the first time I checked, thanks for giving me the idea.

    We all dream to rise to number one on Google. This fascinating topic can teach us a lot about how Google lists each and every one in the Hubpages community. You may first type in your name and then Hubpages and see what happens. Which of your Hubpages articles are most popular or picked up by Google? What other pages with your name show up.

    Alternatively, you can enter the title or keywords from a selection of your Hubpages articles and check the results. Have you written a number of Hubpages blogs on a similar topic? Which one is most popular?

    I do know that my Earth Day Slogans Hubpages blog is Number #1 Uno on Google when I enter the key words. However, it does not show up when I just put in my name and Hubpages alone. I have written numerous articles about Hubpages Tutorials and Community which do show up on bestofhubpages website.

    The hubs I have produced on my 4 month old account do not even come close to the amount of traffic I can get from my one year old website and my one year old website does not even come close to the traffic I receive from a website more than 10 years old.
