    Is it a bad sign when your hub is first featured its on page 17 of google?

    is this generally the case because some of my hubs went straight to page 2 no sweat and on pretty competetive keywords too.

    The first process of search engine is indexing pages and then rank them. I think you'll rank better automatically in few days if you beat your opponent posts in quality and context!
    Remember that searches engine give results based on exact terms entered by user, your post may rank differently for different keywords!

    Sounds like there is just more competition out there for the topic of the hub that landed on page 17. You can move up in the search results as your hub "matures" so I would do whatever you can to make it a great hub (better than the competition if possible), then wait and see!

    Where you find your post on Google depends mainly on how you search for it. Where else does your link appear online? Where else could Google find the link to your post and then give it more priority?  For most people here that would be no where. Don't spend time wondering about where you place on Google's pages. Instead do something to help Google find you. Be proactive.

    you'll rank better automatically in few days if you beat your opponent posts in quality and context . And u should choose hubs with some unique keywords

    I do believe we need to get to page one on Google. And top of page. I know what you mean. Mine are all over the place in Google. It is hard to get to page one but we need to keep trying and it will happen.

    Give it some time.  Try to build some backlinks to it.  Also, recheck the keywords.  Try to add some here or there.

    well, at least your hub is better than mine. I believe that with constant backlinks, your hub will get to the main page soon. Congrats!

    Larry Wallposted 7 years ago

    Your page placement is dependent in part on how you do the search. If I search for articles by Larry Wall--the person named Larry Wall who wrote the Perl computer language comes up first and dominates the page. If I pick one of my better topics, such as oil and gas issues and add Louisiana then my articles appear. If I add my name, they come up even higher.

    If I search by title, I usually do not get great results, but a person doing research is not going to know the title. Researching by subjects and locality pushes you up.

    While more than half of my page views are generated through Google, I think many of the views are the results of people adding my name to a subject and not just searching the subject.

      How do you know which page your Hub is ranked on Google?  I understand when it pops up on page 1, 2 or 3, but did you click all the way to page 17 to find it?

    If you use Google Webmaster Tools, you'll see how the average search position of your hubs changes over time (and also get lots of other very helpful information)
