    Can't we upgrade the search here on HubPages?

    I work hard on my hubs and I continue to add new content so it really frustrates me when a key work in the Hubpages search returns a hubber with a score of 69. How can a struggling writer survive here? If we cannot get our search here on HubPages rewarding those who add new content, how can Google find us?
    In all fairness I know the hubber has the key term in their moniker but I have several hubs with that key term and my hubs are no where to be found.
    Do you have the same problem or am I alone in this trauma?

    I'm always hoping for more traffic and higher scores, but I don't know that we can upgrade how the search occurs via Google; however, there's things we can do as hubpage authors to try to boost our traffic.

    1. Create a blog related to topic(s) we write about and advertise our hubpages (example: computer help blog, with links to related hubpages)
    2. Create a business facebook page on same related topic, add links and write little tips, again, linking some hubpages
    3. Join Linkedin and promote your yourself as well as your hubpage profile and articles, join Linkedin groups, join discussions and post some related hubpage links (but remember it must all be related to the topic)

    By linking all of the above together, and increasing our internet presence, we will increase our traffic.

    I have had upward spikes in my traffic when I spend more time doing all of the above. It's like that saying, if we build it (and spend lots of time building it), they will come and visit!

    Hope that helps!

      I have completed some of those steps. I must work on the Facebook page on each topic. Thank you for helping.
