    doesn't come up on the first page of Google searches, yet still gets plenty of traffic?

    ...or does making it to the first page pretty much manditory if you want lots of visitors?

      The key is to get traffic onto your hub site, enter as many forums, post, post and more post on peoples hubs, leaving comments to help revenue traffic and stay versatile and free!

      I find the more "FREE" you are, you have no restriction, just an envelope to push when it comes to controversy. Post everywhere you can!
      Google, Tagged, Myspace, Friendster (to name a few.) My page never shows up anywhere and I wonder how people find it.  It's all about the hours on the internet and the weaving in and out of peoples sites and figuring out what you can contribute! Keep things interesting and BOOM! You'll get what you need.

      What are your parameters for "plenty of traffic?" 

      I've got Hubs which aren't on the first page of Google and I feel they get plenty of traffic, but if your concept of plenty is different from mine, you might or might not feel the same way.

        well, really i mean the amount of traffic first page hubs get vis a vis those not on Google's first page.

      Google is the biggest of course, but there are other search engines. For some keywords Yahoo for example brings more traffic than Google. Bing can supply you with pretty decent traffic, too smile

      What page you are on depends on exactly what search terms the person is using.  So you can have a low rank but still be in the first page for some commonly searched phrases.

    Same as Relache really, how much do you consider to be plenty?

    A hub at the top of Google will get more traffic than a hub on the second page of Google, period.

    But I have hubs on the second page of Google which get me over 50 page views per day, it depends solely on the keywords in question. Second page on Google for a keyword with 30000 searches a month beats top of Google for a keyword which gets 20 searches per month.... in my humble opinion....

    I have lots of hubs that get plenty of traffic and the PR on my hubs are no greater than PR3. wink big_smile

    Where my hubs rank on Google or Yahoo or any other Search Engine is unknown, because I haven't looked. lol

    I believe if you are on the first page of Google it would present you with a lot of traffic because most people click on websites that are included on the first page. I personally search my hubs revolved around my keywords to see where mine ranks and some of them rank good and some of them rank poorly but the key thing is by maximizing your hub by including them on all kinds of social media websites so that more people can view your hub(s).

      page one doesn't always mean lots of traffic if search volume is low for that keyword.

      there have been numerous times when I've had to go to page 2 or 3 to get a comprehensive article not filled with ads.

    Agreed, I would like to know what a lot of traffic is. Most of my first page Google hubs on decent keywords bring in  between 500-1000 visitors a day, on some of my personal sites I have written articles which bring in over 3000 visitors a day.

    All this is from Google's front page.

    It's all in the perspective.

    My most highly viewed hub is not on page 1 of Google.  It varies between page 3 and page 4.  People find it somehow, and part of it probably has to do with their needing pictures.  It's one of those hubs with about 6 photos.  I have another hub on the same subject, and it gets comparatively little traffic.

    It can depend on the keywords, it may be that you are getting traffic for keywords that you did not know about, check the stats now that they tell you what the searches were made for.. I know that most of the hits on some of my pages are not actually for the keywords I targeted.

    Interestingly enough Bing is best targetted at users over 60, yahoo users over 35, and Google for younger users.

    Google still has more searches than the other two combined though, even with the best targetted age groups of the other search engines.

    I've got a lot of articles on google's first page, but they don't bring me a lot of traffic because they are not highly searched items!
    My blog  is number 1,2,3 and 4 of google, but not many people search for the keyword so it doesn't do me much good.
