Lol.. I am flattered and so happy.......... This is the first time some post of mine has come up to the first position in Google search engine for random search phrases, that too quite popular ones. Yayee!! ..
PS: Can I share the snapshot link here? Is it not allowed?
lol..Its not about that... I am thrilled coz I saw my link on the first rank for the first time..I asked about sharing it here coz I am new here, and donno if that could violate HP TOS here. Here is the link!!
<no self-promoting links>
Sorry to be a huckleberry, but posting links to your hubs is only allowed in the Extreme Makover forum, and yes, it does matter.
Congratulations, though - it is a great thing!
if you want to share a screenshot then..share a screenshot
so thats an often searched phrase?
Lol..not that..but both phrases separately. That is what google keyword tool told me. Anyways! Thanks for telling...
Yes, people are searching for law of attraction and yes people are searching for adsense but the only person searching for law of attraction and adsense is NED.
Not Enough Data.
hmmm..may be people will know it now..There is no harm in trying these tips.
Search engines and people are fickle things. If 0 people are searching for it, it won't matter how high up you are in the results.
Just ask the Unimpressed Turtle.
Everything doesn't need to comply to search engines only. I feel, there are certain things that should be shared here, for the sake of knowledge sharing and fun. I did zero keyword research for this post. In fact, it is just out of curiosity that i searched the thing on google and keyword tool after publishing the hub. It felt nice to be on top of search engine for one time..lol.. Who knows if it can start the trend??
Darkside I've linked to Celebrating Useless Keyword Victories a number of times on HubMob forum threads. I thought the hub was pretty clear, even for novice hubbers. But people either don't bother to read it, or they just don't get it. In fact, I got a response recently quite reminiscent of this thread. “We’re all just learning…” All evidence to the contrary.
It's frustrating I know.
I once had a website that came up about 5th page of the results for the search term babes and it got me traffic.
Needless to say, there was an absolute truckload of people searching for babes and some actually bothered to dig quite deep to get their fill.
On the other hand a top result for a term that no one is searching for is going to be monumental waste of time to celebrate.
Thanks for spreading the word.
You guys are getting too much serious about this. I am sorry for starting this thread. my bad! **Peace**
Sorry to cramp your style but "for the sake of knowledge sharing" I thought you'd want to learn something of use.
Hmmm. Seems to me you seriously thought you had something to celebrate, as evidenced by a similar post to the EOM Earnings thread. No one is trying to ridicule you, just encourage you to learn some important lessons. I really encourage you to read Darkside's hub.
Cali... Dont take this negatively. I dont think people's intentions are 'attacking' you. Sometimes when we type replies, it might come over as harsh, but really, we are all desperately just trying to help each other. I want to thank you for posting this - it has inspired debate and from debate comes learning.
This thread has turned into a brilliant debate, please don't delete it.
I say ditto to shazwellyn! So sorry Cali if your feelings got hurt, however, you've caught the attention of someone (darkside) who is known for knowing the ropes here on HP! Jeeez, what a privilege!
I for one have learned a lot from this posting.
While I've read, studied, and learned a lot from many of darkside's hubs. Somehow, I had not seen the one referenced here. Needless to say, I'm excited about reading it.
With that said I sincerely hope Cali that you can now view starting this post as a "learning curve" not only for you but many others that will benefit from it as well. Thanks for the tidbits, darkside, and rmcrayne!
Lol..now i feel like I should ask someone to delete this thread. I know I am new here and have loads to learn. But, still there could be much more friendlier way to deal with these things. At least, that is what i expect from people who know things better here and are quite experienced.
So, another insight - Can I ask someone here to delete this thread? I don't see any point of having it here anymore now!
If by friendly you mean that we all celebrate along with you and not point you in the right direction, we'll be doing you a disservice.
If you find honest advice as being unfriendly, then that is unfortunate. Name calling and ridiculing is unfriendly, and there's been none of that here.
Looking at a couple of your hubs it is evident that you have writing talent. And while it is crucial, it's not enough to just be a talented writer. You also need to learn how search engines work (as this will provide you with the bulk of your readership) and being able to take correction if you're off the mark.
I think threads can be closed to reply, but not sure that HP would delete. Why would you want it deleted? There's plenty to be learned here, IF people are open to learning.
Don't be embarassed. You're not the only one to fall into "the celebration". That's why Darkside wrote the hub, and that's why I reference it fairly often in the forums.
No one intended malice. The "quite experienced" here sometimes get weary of teaching the same lessons, especially to those who don't really demonstrate openness to learn.
What I dont get is where a one word keyword starts and long tailed keyword ends. Keywords are in the title, right? Tags are categories - the content of the article. Does google just pick both up? For example.. Blame it on the parents - Scapegoats. If someone searches for 'blame' and another searches for 'blame the parents', would the article be picked up for the long tail example and the single keyword?
'blame' would be too general. I'd go for 'blame the parents' if it has some decent monthly search volume.
Not being entirely sure what the hub is about but just going off your title, you may want to consider "blame game" with 1,600 global searches per month to add to your list of tags.
I share your joy.
What a thrill huh?
Here's more first positions to you!!

If we only produce content that people are searching for, will this lead to better quality content ? Will this lead to the growth of the knowledge base? How will new knowledge enter the mainstream if content is only developed to satisfy current demand?

Yes i want to know it because i get 48 views in 6month for my hub. And its not indexed in google. My hub was Featured when it published. And still here is no visitors to my hub?? Even my Blogger BLOG getting 250-350 visitors per day.

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

While keywords, as part of your article are indeed important to the SEO "thing," and, as part of your article, they should be spelled properly and in the correct grammatical format, the tags you add outside the article are also valuable.I am beginning to suspect, however, that when...

Since the Google changes the number of different search engines listed on my stats has increased, even though the overall visits are still down on what they were.Maybe the complaints I have read here about the problems of searching for topics on the new style Google's results are making people use...

Sorry there was a thread on here I was looking at on this and I simply cannot find it after 30 mins looking - so here's my question (and a suggestion!)Question: If I post my hub to yahoo and google as this thread I was reading suggested via an RSS feed to my yahoo and google home page, do I...
