Is there anyway to find out why one day one of my hubs appears on the first page of Google search results and the next day it's nowhere to be found?
Google uses lots of different different algorithms to rank website so they can able to deliver quality results to there users. Those algorithm keep interchanging themselves so if your hub fits in one of there algorithm then you'r ranking boosts but as soon as google use another algorithmic factor to show results you are out! Google consider keyword in url, in content. Google also consider backlinks to ranks sites, H1 tags, long quality articles.
This is called the Google dance. It happens while Google decides where you belong.
Also...if you are logged into a Google account, you might see yourself ranked higher than you really are.
Also...please phrase your questions with something descriptive. "Google question" makes me want to punch babies.
Sorry if my question frustrated you, it's hard to formulate a descriptive question when you're only allowed so many character to do it. Please don't hurt babies because of me
Fine, I won't punch them. I'll just...stare at them angrily or something -_-
You should just sit back and write lot of hubs. Try to cover the topics having less competition keyword. You will soon find yourself ranking the charts.

I know that in general a higher word count is looked upon favorably by the Google algorithm. Does anyone know if and when that reaches a point of diminishing returns where extra word count doesn't help any more? I make my articles at least 1200 words because I heard way back when that was the...

Before the Phantom Panda my monthly traffic was the typical sine wave, pretty much completely governed by day-of-week.After the Phantom Panda my traffic is pretty much just a straight line, day-of-week effects are now about 80% muted. And of course it's my peak traffic days that have been taken...
