I have 50 hubs, basically about 10 of them are doing fairly well in searches. I have been able to get my 10 main hubs which I think have the best shot at making money to rank in the top 50. My hub about e-magazines for the iPad is 21 for the term "e-magazines" and Google shows over 50 million results so I have done something right but.... now what? I want to break the top 10 and it seems that getting from the 20's and 30's to top ten has me stumped. Any help would be appreciated.
More incoming links, more incoming links and more incoming links. Once you have worked that to death you may need a bit of age on the hub to progress more. Clicks and time spent on hub will slowly move you up over time.
A little birdie told me that clicking on your own listing in Google, then minimizing it for a long time before closing it or clicking back to Google and then closing it may help a little bit.
Just don't hit back and click on any other listings. Maybe go to the next page of results then close window so time spent registers for sure. That bird is a rather manipulative little thing isn't he?
Have you tried using closely related keyword variations in anchor text so they all are not exactly alike? Spread out your linking campaign out over time. Maybe once per week or 2 weeks go work it. Not all at once. Make it look more natural to Google.
Thanks for the tips, I am increasing my linking strategy, I was using about a half dozen article directories and about half dozen bookmarks I have just began to add another 5 - 10 of each so the links should grow quickly.

The good news -- there's progress. But this is *tiny* traffic. I've been reading hubs and answers on getting traffic and I'm leery of some of the older advice because I have the impression that poor backlinks can be damaging with Google. So, I hope the veterans here will have some patience with yet...

As others, I am saddened by the recent Google update and drop in traffic,(luckily I have my eggs in different baskets) but what really ticks me off is that articles written recently (like a month ago!) by the average Joe and clearly copied from mine are outranking me! What I noticed is that when I...

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...

I am fairly new to HP. I have published 10 hubs (although 4 are recipes from the contest this past summer; I'm not sure whether to count those or not). Anyway, I have been reading and reading about how to succeed at HP and I am feeling overwhelmed by all the technical jargon. I did manage to sign...
