    Can someone do a search of the owlcation article and confirm my hub is indeed on the first page of Google?  Thanks!

      Hi Michael,
      I took a look and it's definitely there! It's a great feeling, isn't it? Congrats and I hope your work continues to go in that direction.

    Yes!  Thanks Jean!  Super cool!

    This week I also invested in a otc stock ABVG, $200 dollars for 2 million shares at 0.0001 on a whim, and the day after the ceo announced they’re partnering up with Amazon, QVC, Whole-foods. They say this stock should skyrocket now, if it hits 50 cents a share one day, I’ll be a millionaire with 2 million shares! 

    2018 is my year!!!!!

    Michael, write a hub on investing in stocks for TOTAL beginners. I've been wanting to try this year but I'm completely clueless and so busy with school that I haven't had a chance to really explore it. I bet there's a lot of other people like me who need an explanation in plain English smile

      Kierstin,
      For more hubs on investing in stocks, go to Hub's section on Personal Finance then click on 'Investing in Stocks, Bond'.

    Googling from Florida and still number 1.  Kierstin, If you want to invest try the Robinhood App. I made over 100 trades at no cost. The app is easy to learn.

    Congrats Michael.  That is what success at HubPages feels like!  It seems like going to the Network Sites format is paying of for HubPages and writers.

    Welcome to the club smile Owlcation is picking up as a domain from what I see. To me dengarden is already there. My Owlcation hubs are moving up as well.

    How's the traffic on the other hub btw. Still in the 1000's each day? That would be cool.

    I too was overjoyed to see one of my hubs on the first page of google. I was just browsing around last week when to my great surprise I discovered one of my hubs was on the first page of Google in the seventh place down the line. For one who is a newcomer to Hubpages this was something unexpected especially when I'm only getting an average of 30 vews daily. Very encouraging indeed.

      Daniel, if you are checking on your pages then Google keeps track and will move yours up to the front of your search. (That is why Michael asked someone else to confirm that his article was number one with Google.)
      theraggededge included this search engine in a post a few weeks ago https://www.startpage.com and if you check on there you will get the same results from Google but with no tracking/following your searches, etc.
      I hope you find your hub is still on that first page. Best of luck.

      1. Daniel Mollat profile image99
        Daniel Mollatposted 4 months agoin reply to this

        You are absolutely right. I did what you suggested and my hub did not come up when I search using startpage.com

        One learns something new every day.

    I've been in a slump. My last 2 articles haven't gone on network sites. When I tried to deliver another article on a network site, it said rejected. Doesn't mean I failed, however.

    Could try editing it and see if that helps. One of my articles was rejected but it only has two views from like two weeks so I just consider something that didn't work.
