Do you have any hubs where your Yahoo search traffic is more that all the Google searches combined (thats Google with different domains (TLDs))? I have a few, although not many.
A couple of my Hubs have that, will most likely flick over to Google more as the Hubs mature.
I had one hub that had an explosion of Yahoo search traffic for a week soon after it was published, and then it completely tanked and now gets a piddly 2-3 views from google.
I wish I could figure out what happened.
Not had it with hubs, but I have had that with a website of mine for a while. It has been 2nd position for a fairly high traffic keyword in yahoo for ages, and I've only just recently got as high as the 2nd page on google.
I have one hub where the Yahoo traffic is ten times greater than the Google traffic.
Yahoo is easy to rank in if you get the on-page seo right - keywords in title and url, plus in the intro. Google demands backlinks, so it takes longer to rank there. As for Bing - they only seem to go for mature pages with lots of backlinks.
The above is just my experience of course
Good advice - msn is similar but when backlinking stick with one main keyword instead of a variation which Google likes.
So, if you're hub is about "golf shoes" then the url should be exactly that, the title, initial paragraph and also your backlink strategy. MSN might seem like a poor relation but for high traffic keywords and this approach it can still bring in some good traffic.
Google by far, Google give me around 80% of my traffic, and Google UK gives me more than Yahoo and MSN combined.

Lately, I've noticed some Hubbers Have Their Picture along side Google Search Results for their Hubs. How is this done? Seems like it may be helpful to entice people to click on a Hub link in Google.

I have been really noticing the new niche sites taking over on my Google searches in a big way, with many articles coming up right on top of search results or really close. Looks like the sites are becoming really successful.

Since the latest Google update, my top 20 articles have shifted around and some that were not doing that well are now near the top on my stats page. These high performing hubs are mostly getting their views from android.google.com. Why are they not showing up as google.com? I have had mobile...

I've noticed that when I do a Google search that my Hubs show up in the search results without any date. I just made a change to one of my articles "What is Dave Chappelle Doing These Days". I made sure that it was re-indexed by Google by doing a fetch in Webmaster...
