    HI everyone, I'm Phyl of Phyl's Potpourri, I am the worst when it comes to searching for something.  It seems to take me hours when others find it in seconds.  So my question is how can I make my hubs more easily found in the search?  Do I change my titles? Add more tags? Yet at the same time I don't want to violate any rules. I ask because I posted 2 hubs and I can't seem to locate them when I search.

    Thanks
    Phyl

      Well, let's start by Welcoming you to Hubpages.

      I've noticed the title, the url and your tags are part of everything to do with ranking. In some way or another, each of those has something to where you rank. Plus, I'm not sure if hubscore has anything to do with.

      For, I'm still learning myself.

        thank you for helping I think I am not sure what you mean by url.  I personally don't have a website.  I have tried to add a lot of tags, what about the categorizing? I am not sure what to click there.

          The URL is that link that is provided to you, through Hubpages, when you create a hub.

          It's usually, the second line, right after, your title.

          As for category- selection? I use my own judgement.

          Tags are keywords, either in your title, url or in the hub itself. Usually, associated with what the hub is about or related to it in some way.

    Well Phyl. My hubs take about 7 days to get into the Google database Idk why. Some hubbers they go in in one or two days. The way you can up your search engine rankings the easiest are:

    The keyword or phrase in your Title.
    The keyword or phrase in your URL.
    Using the keyword or phase a few times (naturally) in your summery text.
    Use 9-15 tags total revolving around your keyword/phrase.


    Making about 2-4% of all the pages text words your main keyword.

    Getting backlinks to your Hub from other sites using anchored URl links.

    This is an example of an anchored Url for the term Puppies.
    *note the url isn't valid for this demonstration*

    Those are some of the easy fixes that normally work!

    Hope this helps,

      Thank you for helping I understand what you are saying bout the keyword phrase in the title.  I don't understand the URL part.  Where do I find that? And then all I need to do is like your example only with my words?

        The url is what is normally automatically filled in when you make a title. It is the 2nd field in the Make a New Hub.

        It is titled:

        Give Your Hub a Unique Web Address

        A unique web address is a URL. All urls are automatically:

        http://www.hubpages.com/hub/(this area is where you put your keyword phrase. Some might be taken. If its a hub about Christmas Carols then put something like: holiday-christmas-carols)
        by entering that your Hub location in a URL or Google Search would be:

        http://www.hubpages.com/hub/holiday-christmas-carols

        Picture Example:
        http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa304/thranax/hubexample.gif

        Hope this helps,

            Phyl, you cannot edit your URL. The address is set in stone. The title can be changed though.
