    Does Google hate HubPages?  I've never seen any search term return even a single hub in Google search results. Have you?

      Yes, lots. Nowadays, they are always on the vertical sites.

      "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.

            Yes, it did, but in recent months it has really taken off.  I think this is because there's a great deal of interest in living in an RV on your own property ever since it became so  difficult and costly to buy a house.

    "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!!!

          Definitely a good one.  I am frustrated that it is top of all my hubs and it still has not been moved.  One loses traction if this is not done quickly.  The second one is also high on my list.

    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.

      You have 13 out of 19 articles on network sites, so I think that's pretty good.

    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.

      Use https://www.startpage.com/ to get a neutral Google result.

        Startpage is a very useful SEO tool and I use it also.
