That is the million dollar question these days, you have to kill a penguin and a panda and possibly more animals in the future to get there.....jimmy
If you ask Google and also look at the Learning Center they'll tell you all!!!
* a very good title
* quality content, attributed images
* a degree of SEO
* regular crawls from the robots
You should start to go higher! It can take time. Best of luck.
Besides what you're already being told, keep in mind you are competing against the entire world! Its very difficult to outrank the currently top ranking sites on the web today. While Google tells everyone "just create quality content", trust me, this doesnt work. I had people share my content from one of my sites 20,000 times before it started to rank well. It wasn't until I hit 350 backlinks that I even saw a decent change in ranking at all.
The answer, you need to post your content to social networks, and actually get involved with the communities on Google+, facebook, etc. You need people to share your content, then others will want to link to it from relevant content on their own sites. The links must be relevant too! If the links pointing at you are coming from spammy sites or are irrelevant for any reason they will actually count against you, keep that in mind.
Then you need a ton a content. Remember, you are effectively competing against the entire world! For this reason alone you aren't going to rank for everything, no matter how good your content is. Trust me, the competition is really tough! I have produced close to 400 pages of content over the last year, along with developing 2 websites, and I can tell you from personal experience it ain't easy getting to the top.
If you really want to make money on the internet then you will need your own website, hosted on a real domain (not example.wordpress.com or blogspot.com), original content & lots of it, and a LOT of high quality back links! Without the above criteria, you cannot make it on the web. I've been doing this for 8 years, and thats just the way it goes and the way it is.
In the end quality content alone wont get you there! I'm an SEO specialist and a web designer, I understand how search engines work, and its tough for me to rank. You need people to see your content, and has to be really good. If no one likes it then social networks will not help.
Try doing keyword research beforehand with the Google Adwords Keyword Tool (https://adwords.google.com/o/Targeting/ … WORD_IDEAS)
Learn how to analyze competition and what phrases garner the most attention. One of the most important things is to switch the match types on the left from "broad" to exact or "phrase". Hope it helps!

When I did a Google search for one of my hubs, a different hubber's authorship is showing up attached to my hubs.I know this same thing is happening to another hubber as well... the same hubber's authorship (Marcy) is showing up in Google search for the authorship.Here's a pic of the...

Lately, I've noticed some Hubbers Have Their Picture along side Google Search Results for their Hubs. How is this done? Seems like it may be helpful to entice people to click on a Hub link in Google.

Something strange is going on. I have a hub that's been doing really well for years. It was hub-pro edited a couple of months ago and traffic increased by a couple hundred a day. Over the last week or so it's hovered around 750 per day. Overall it has almost half a million views.Today, views are...

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some common threads in there. What content of yours is holding on to its ranking and...

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.
