    Does anyone have any information on how Google ranks hubs?  I published a hub a few days ago and found it on the front page of google for one of my tags/search terms.  Today it's nowhere to be found on google.  How did I go from the front page of google to not being listed on the first 10 pages of google?  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

    Thanks for your reply - I am new to all this - what does news vs. authority mean exactly?

    When you just posted - it's news, and makes the first page just because of it. Then you have to actually earn your place...

    Ah ha -and earning you place is done just by writing a good hub and promoting it?  Is there some other trick?

    Also don't be too locked into Google's rankings.  Google overall is very high maintenance.  I have have pages drop in and out of top 10 spots all the time.  Some days in the top five other days non exsistant. In the end if you provide consistently good content and market the hubpage by building links to it you will get a good amount of traffic and overall have good rankings for many keywords. 

    If you are just looking at the ranking of one keyword on one hubpage you will drive yourself crazy with trying to figuring out google rankings.  Instead don't pay attention at all to the rankings until you have built 15 to 20 pages.  Then you will have some data to use and work from.

    Hope it helps...

    Yup Google will drive you mad if you focus on it.

    Quality content + quality linkage is the way forward. Do it naturaly!
