Why do people on here seem to be unaware that search engines like Google exist?
I'm guessing there are quite a few writers here who still do not understand how search engines work, and the importance of keywords. Still others, like me, aren't here for the money, so our knowledge of search engines, or lack thereof, is by choice. We are writers...we try to improve our craft...HP is just a community and platform that allows us to do so. I actually understand search engines because I do SEO work for customers, but when it comes to my own writing, I just don't care.
It's also possible that someone posted the question with the intention of getting traffic. A small amount of revenue can be generated by your questions, so if you ask one that is likely to get found by google, then you'll have a higher chance of earning money. Unfortunately this means we get a lot of repetitive and spammy questions filling the Q&A feed.

I was reading a Hub on Hubpages, and was concerned to read the advice that the content we use in our Hubs should be unique, not something we've posted elsewhere on the net.I started out on Helium and have nearly 200...

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.
