Does Google hate HubPages? I've never seen any search term return even a single hub in Google search results. Have you?
"can I live in an rv on my property" for me returns this in the #1 spot:

You might try searching "Contemporary Blues Artists", or "How to clean your house like a pro"
Gee....didn't know that. Thanks. I rarely look to see how my hubs are doing in search results.
You're doing great, and I think that search term did well even when their was only HubPages.
"Playing card tarot" should return two Exemplore hubs in the top results.
Dave, you're right. All the replies are saying "yes", but they're referring to results from the vertical sites (which we call niche sites). They are not from HubPages.com, (the main site).
Google's problem with HubPages is the whole reason why HubPages management created the niche sites! They wouldn't have gone to all that work and expense if they'd been able to get HubPages.com articles to rank consistently on Google.
The main site is now really just an administrative hub where we publish our articles. They are then "auditioned" for the niche sites and if they are any good, they're moved within a few days or weeks. This means there's very little good material being published on the main site, which can only drag it down further in Google's eyes.
I have a new one which has been published but has not been moved to a niche site yet - if you search how to make a boho dreadlock hat it should come up first. I also have another one published but not moved which I published yesterday - it comes up on the 1st page. Never quite sure if this is because it is still in my history but you could have a go and tell me if it does with you too:)
It came up as #1 on Bing. I haven't checked Google yet. It must be a good hub!!!
I know some of my Hubs on HubPages are indexed as I can find them. They are not getting any search views though which I guess is what matters more. I am trying everything I can get to my Hubs moved to the network sites when I can as those are the Hubs I write that start to get daily views.
search best volleyball quotes. I get a HowTheyPlay article 2nd in results. Search 8 hour diet and I get a caloriebee article second. I don't know if results are determined by your personal search history, but this is what shows up for me. I've also come across other Hubpage articles in many other searches. Like for melted crayon art, which is just one off the top of my head. It all just depends on what you are searching.
Thanks. I am trying my best to get them there. Most of the time they get moved after edits.
Google 'tailors' the search results to what they think you're looking for. If you aren't using Google to find Hubpages etc, then it won't return them in searches for hubs as from the info they have, you aren't looking for HP! It's part of the Artificial Intelligence program they run.
What's top of a list for me in a search result, might not be top of a list for the next person, simply because of what Google thinks they're looking for.

This week i have noticed a massive reduction of traffic from 1200 to 300 views per day. When I searched Google, I found that most of the Hubs have reduced Google ranking. The Most disheartening thing is pages that over take me in Google search are in fact advertisements and few sentence pages. In...

Why don't the hubs that I have published appear on a google search?

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...
