    Hi, I created a hubpage 4 hours ago and it's now #18 (second page) out of 24,000+  on the results pages of Google. This is for a one-word keyword.

    My question is, did I make it to the Top 20 just because the page is new, and will this ranking slide in next few days or week?

    I won't do backlink building for that hubpage in the meantime so I'll know if it does rise or slide in the SERPs naturally.

    What's your experience?

    And should I build backlinks to it goes up to the Top 10 or will agressive backlink building backfire?

    Your hub ranks for the term "socialadr" which no one searches on Google. A competition less keyword, I am sure your rankings won't go downwards but its useless.

    Thanks for the reply.

    So making hubs for keywords with less competition and low search volume is good for getting traffic? Or just a waste of time?

      Making hubs for keywords like this one that no one searches is a waste of time. Don't you think a keyword(or a string of keywords) should be searched at least some 2K to 3K times a month for you to spend your time and energy on it?

      Use https://adwords.google.com/select/Keywo … egacy=true to check the number of times a keyword is searched in a month.

        I do quite nicely from terms with 500 monthly global searches. Being no.1 for these (and it's quite easy) is quite lucrative.

    Actually, I think niche targeting is the perfect way to go. All else is saturated.

      There is has to *be* a niche for that to work.

      From what I've read/seen, the definition of a niche is finding a keyword that has little competition (so you're high in the SERPs) while still getting a reasonable level of traffic.

      For instance, "cars" is saturated. But if the term "Long orange snoopy car" is being searched by 3,000 people per month, chances are that you can get high in the SERPs for that, since it's (hopefully) likely to be undiscovered.  That's a niche. If 20,000 people are searching that term per month with little competition, that' s a GREAT niche!

      I agree that niche topics is the best way to rank on Google.

    I do niche targettign, however you still need some traffic for it to be worthwhile.

    Ranking in Google is easy if your keyword is fekfbnewlbewlfnqfknewljnFNEFNqnfewofnew.

      What we need to do is buy clean skins of sparkling white wine and label them as "Keyword Celebration!". We'd sell them by the case to unsuspecting webmasters/hubbers/lensmasters who like to pop the cork off the champers on the most obscure keyword/s combinations.

      I think the Unimpressed Turtle would be most impressed.

      PS: And you do realize that you totally dominate a singular keyword search for frongelous. I think I might try for frongelicious.

    That sure is one that will give you huge opportunities if you use that niche as a new feminine disorder!

    When you search in the Google Keyword Tool External, be sure to uncheck broad results and check exact results. This will give you a more accurate depiction of the monthly searches.

    Also keep in mind, and I learned this from Market Samurai, that the percentage of clicks goes down with each position you rank in.

    For example, position 1 gets 42% clicks. Position 2 gets 12%. Position 3 gets 8%. Position 4 gets 6% and it keeps sliding.

    So in actuality, you're only getting a fraction of the monthly search traffic for a particular keyword -- less than half!

    So if your hub targets a keyword that's getting 1000 exact searches a month, and your hub ranks in position 1, expect to get only 420 unique visitors a month clicking to read your hub.

    Keep that in mind because you may need more than one keyword to put into your hub, or you may need to create more hubs around several keywords because you ideally want to rank in position 1 on the first page of SERPs, especially if you're trying to promote a product.

      Most reports I have seen show the top 5 searches getting similar levels of traffic, only dropping a few percentage points as hety go down.

      The real drops in click throughs happen when your search drops 'below the fold' (The user has to scroll down) or when you get kicked on to page two or lower.

      When it comes to the top 5 results the real winners are those that have the most compelling description and title.

        Ah, so true. A good title and meta description that entices the reader will definitely get you clicks.

        Yes the description is vital! If you write an eyecatching description it doesn't matter if you're not no.1!

          What about the effect different browsers have on your rank. I have noticed that the same search on two different browsers I have position 1 or 2 for my website.

          1. thisisoli profile image70
            thisisoliposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            This might be because of personal settings, toolbars, and your search data.

            If you want true results use scroogle.org.

    It seems that when you first publish a hub, it gets listed near the top because it is fresh.  Then Google re-indexes after a few days to its natural position.
