    Last week I was pretty happy to find my hub sitting in rank/spot #28 (middle of page 3)for a keyword with about 10,000 hits (not much but hey) a month after being published 8-10days before hand.

    Now it's no where to be seen.

    Could this be due to a small drop in traffic or do I need to update my hub?

    How can I get it back up? Thanks

        I thought the keywords might have given you a boost at first, and then as the subject is very competitive it has dropped off. I would add some capsules I reckon, and try to re arrange keyword sentences. Good luck. smile

          thanks, by capsules would you recommend more info or simply links and small descriptions to other helpful resources.

            More links, more capsules. I would cut the bottom off long capsules and put a new text capsule under the long ones and split them up. Some pic capsules and a poll may help too. smile

    My understanding is that Google likes two things - freshness and age.  So if your Hub is new, it gets some attention.  Once that "freshness" wears off, Google loses interest for a while, until your site gets some age. 

    Someone else more knowledgeable about these things may correct me though!

      Yes this is essentially correct, and as far as HubPages is concerned your page is the most relevant for the search 'business marketing tips' which discounts host crowding as a reason. (it ranks #1 if you restrict your search to HubPages)

      That said it does not rank on Google within the first hundred results. If you have been building links to the page it may be that you have built them to fast, if that is the case the page will probably return to its previous ranking within a few weeks.

      If you have not been building links or bookmarking the page then it’s time to start. If you have written other hubs that are related link them together and make sure that they are in the same group so that HubPages ads previous and next links to the bottom of your hubs.

        that would most likely be correct in that within a few days I built some links and haven't touched it since then.

        I will begin to try and build some more, slowly this time.

    Jackson, currently your hub is nowhere in the top 100 positions of Google, Yahoo and Bing.
    I believe building a few backlinks can help it with rankings. While on HubPages, you don't need a lot of backlinks but a few of them on competitive keywords can help.

    Jackson, if you were to split your numbered paragraphs into their own text boxes, add a few more photos around these and maybe add a video. Search the title of your hub in youtube,usually I do this for my hubs and there is always a video available relating to my hubs. As others have said you need to create backlinks to your hubs. Otherwise keep up the good work!

    You are heading for a very cmopetitive niche, and you will be up against some VERY stiff competition, you will need to build up a network of sites and pages if you want to stand a real chance at succeeding with keywords like those!
