    I Googled, keys to a happy marriage, and discovered that out of the 2.37 million results my hub 5 Keys To A Happy Marriage was on the second page. Ranked 15th overall, that is if I counted correctly.

    I know it is not the first page but maybe this is a sign I am getting there.

      Darkside, I realized I left out that information on the original post. So I changed the original post.

        Well, i have one hub which is in number 2 in google search list among 80 Million search results. The number 1 is also my forum post on the same topic. But nothing exciting cause the topic is a rare one & Im not getting traffic from outside hubpages. sad

        Good work.

        Check out the link Ultimate Hubber gave.

        I wouldn't be too concerned about ranking highly for that term, perhaps you should try and work the phrase [how to have a happy marriage] into your hub. 880 searches per month, and the estimated average CPC is $1.09. For [keys to a happy marriage] it is $0.05 which pretty much says that there's no advertisers bidding for that keyword.

            Darkside's hub on Useless Keyword Victories is one of the most important hubs I have read on HubPages.  Big "Eureka!"  I have posted the link many times for hubbers that I thought could benefit from a "Eureka!"  Unfortunately, most of them get insulted and defensive.  hmm

              Thank you for the links. I am open to all the help I can get. I want to reach the point where I am getting a payout on a monthly basis. No time to get offended when you have goals to reach.

    That's great! I try to use Proxies to see the actual SERP's, I find that Google uses your search history and alters the rankings.
