Why did my hub fall out of Google's rankings so quickly?
I have a hub that for the last month or so was consistently going up in search rankings and getting 30-80 hits a day. It managed to make the 1st thru 4th position on several search phrases. Now yesterday it dropped like a stone, I cannot find it in the first 5 pages of results. Is there a way I can find out why? I have few backlinks, and I do not employ shady SEO providers or practices, by ranking was purely 'organic'.
I'm new and have no idea. But that's very usefult information so if you find out let me know. I'll be dropping in to see what answers you get.
You are not alone. Could be another google update that hit our hub rankings. I don't know we have to wait and see
Perhaps because it hasn't been updated? Or perhaps you don't have enough genuine backlinks so it was outranked by other sites on the latest algorithm update? I wouldn't panic yet, perhaps it's just temporary and will climb again. Sometimes after an update, my rankings will drop briefly and then climb back up. I would recommend doing "white hat" SEO though and backlinking with relevant sites and also updating your hubs periodically with any new information. When I update older hubs it seems to help in time.
I do update my hubs, even if it is only little updates. The hub in question was recently updated. As far as backlinks, I am not a good 'networker' and do not really no where to get them, except from perhaps competition and that isn't going to work.
Google is always changing the ranking rules, so all we can do is follow its updates.
Hmm. I found that through the past week, my views went from around 100-200 views a day and shot up to 700, almost 800 views a day. It may have been my recent activity of starting to write some more hubs and improving the URL "tthudium.hubpages.com" I don't know.

There is a lot of bad SEO (search engine optimization) advice out there, and the use of automated services that procure backlinks to your Hubs is one particularly egregious example. Using services to get backlinks can result in your Google AdSense and/or HubPages account permanently banned. Yes, we...
