    Is it my computer or does the information shared in forums go online to Google? Today I searched Google for HubPages and found Aoiffe 379 appeared twice before HubPages. In other words, HubPages was second.Was this a fluke, a mistake or real?

      Of course it does - these are public forums.  I'm surprised how many people forget that most forums on the internet are public and visible to everyone!

      I discovered this when I googled my hub name and a lot of my results link back to my forum posts, along with my hubs smile.

    yeah, many times when I google myself I find my forum posts before my profile page or any of my hubs...I don't understand why, though. lol hmm

    Google rates new material strongly hence recent forum posts get relatively high ranking

    I'm guessing, then, it's probably also a good idea to keep in mind how some forum posts would "present" us if someone Googles our name.  hmm

      Yepsters! I keep hoping some of the forum trolls don't get hired in a job interview because of their forum shenanigans! tongue

      lol  I know....         Tomorrow we'll all come back and discover the forums empty because this thread will scare away all those people who thrive on saying on here what they'd never say in their "real" life.  lol

    If you post serious discussions that is tightly related to your hubpages then I'm sure you'll be able to get some traffic on low competing keywords....but since I just post a one line usually sarcastic forum post on many threads I won't gain much traffic from this method!

    Both my forum posts and comments I've left on Hubs have come up on Google. Since realizing that, I haven't been quite as spontaneous here as I used to be.
