Does accolades determine the success of a hub?
What is your thought?
I don't think it should, it might be a way to measure your own success and for others to see your participation in Hubpages. But when you put up hubs you are relying on people searching you out on search engines whether you have accolades or not. Hubpages can't make search engines find you first just because you have more accolades, its your content and which search engine you plan to target since they all have different algorithms. Some people I know here don't participate much but their views per day is still pretty high, as long as you are putting out topics that people online want to search for than you'll be successful in views.
I would say success of a Hub is determined by whether people are reaching your Hub when they use a search engine, and whether Google crawlers are finding it. Then you get traffic, exposure, etc. And this is determine to great extent on Keywords (words in the Hub which turn up in search engine search results). Of course, if not talking about traffic, then if a Hub is good in terms of quality, then that is what is significant. But I'm assuming this question is addressing the issue of traffic. I think Accolades are good though, because I think it indicates participation in the Hubpages community, which does affect Hubber score, which in turn affects whether Hubs are indexed in the search engines.

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

I have a hub that gets anywhere from 200-300 views every single day. It's an evergreen hub. Unfortunately, if I type the title in GOOGLE it's not ranking anywhere near 1st page. However, it is on the 2nd or 3rd page for some keyword phrases, but rank is still low.What can I do to dramatically...

Hello Fellow Hubbers,I have been here for awhile so am not naive to making Hubs, some fairly successful ones at that but I am surprised that this Hub hasn't done better.

I'm in the process of migrating my content from my blog to HubPages and just transferred an article titled "Top 50 Men's Grooming Blogs for 2014." I just switched this article to HubPages a few moments ago (using a 301 redirect). I'm already on the first page of google for the key term...

I hear the phrase, "mature a hub," a lot. What actually happens when a hub matures? I know people say that after a hub has matured (around six months) it starts to do much better. But what actually happens when a hub matures? Thanks!
