If you could ask the Google Traffic Gods one question, what would it be?
I remain in the dark as to the many dramatic ups and downs on my traffic. If you could sit with the traffic engineers that rule our readers, what would you ask of Google? Am I the only one perplexed?
I'm not so much perplexed by that anymore, but I do wish that our adsense earnings were transparent. We can't see which ads were clicked and such, so there's no way to tell if they are paying what they're contracted to pay us.
You've got first crawl dates on new content, so why do scraped copies of pages posted at a later date sometimes outrank the original?
(the problem is less common than it used to be, but it still isn't eliminated.)
Although really, there isn't much I'd ask. I am a little stymied sometimes by how the algorithm ranks particular sites relative to each other, but from a big picture standpoint, I have an idea what the algorithms are trying to select for even if they don't always succeed.
How can I get an adsense account? I had one once a few years back, they want that password in order to get a new one, and I have no idea what it was.
I would ask them whats going on with google and hubpages and how can I fix my traffic.
Why haven't I been connected to your AdSense program YET!!!!!!!!! Thank you.
I would ask them why they cannot predict the future considering they are Gods.
That would make life a whole lot easier but probably a whole lot duller too.
It is a great game playing at catch up, don't ya think?

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?

Thought I would post this to see what other people's experiences are. I recently had a flood of hundreds of Google visitors to one of my hubs, which one would think would equate to many monies. Everywhere I go on this great interwebs, I seem to run into the refrain of Google traffic being the be...

This might be a complete co-incidence, but I switched to the new profile a couple of days ago, and today Google is pretending it doesn't know me. Hubs that ranked on the first page for main keyword are not found in the first 10 pages. Even more worrying, I can't find them in Google even...

This week on the blog, Christy has kindly asked me to post about alternative sources of getting traffic. You can read the blog post here. My guide is written with some of my favorite ways to get traffic, but hopefully also offers tips relevant to both newer and older hubbers. If you have any...
