I have Searched a few of you hubbers profiles names on Google images and some of you are not on the 1st page..Some of you have more than one pic, and some have there pic and other hubbers pics!!...
Which other hubbers are on your page and how many pics are there of yours?
I have 2
I have 2, 3, and 5 on the first page. And the 1st image on the page was linked to a comment I made on the forums here.
LOL I just tried this for the first time! I had 3 (8,9 and 10) on the first page. The first 2 are for HP and the 3rd was for my personal website. Pretty cool! I do, however rate better by just a google search of my name. Unfortunately, my name is pretty common. Thanks for suggesting this as I had never tried it before!
My profile pic is number 1 and 2, after that, there are a bunch of photos that I have on my hubpages.
I'm not sure what you are doing--but I just put "robie2" into google search, thinking who else but me could come u p LOL--Well my profile on hubpages is 1 and one of my hubs is 2 on page one but then there is a jpg photo #2 for something called the robie house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and then there is somebody with a screen name of robie2 on a Latin dating site and also some car buff with the name robie2.-- find that kind of interesting--dunno why.
Is that what you are doing? and are you searching google images as well?
Freaky. I got a bunch of naked girls wrapped in game console controllers and keyboards and stuff.
It is pretty hot.
ahhhhh you have such a hot screen-name LOL-- I think its cool and very cutting edge, myself
It's probably because of "girl" being in your screen name.
I get tons of pictures. My regular profile picture is on there several times. I also see most of the pictures that I've used in my hubs, as well.
Oh silly me-- I just went back and read compu-smart's post--he said images(duh) so I searched my profile in images-- ok the first three were my profile pic on hubpages, #4 was a pic from one of my hubs and 5 was Livelonger's avatar from a forum post to me--then there are a whole bunch more photos from my hubs--hmmmmm think I have to go back and give them all new titles:)
Princessa, you are #2 in images when I search for weddingconsultant ! Weird.
And I´m #5 . When I search with my profile name it only shows on 4th page .
What a hoot. I've got 4 pics of me, 3 more pics of stuff in my hubs, and 3 other hubbers. This was actually a good exercise.
I am on page 4. There is some rotten tennis player using my name and photos of him all over the shop.
I have about 5 of the first page in the web search though.
How dare he usurp you! He's only a 3 times Grand Slam Champion...
Images from my Hubs were in 3rd and 4th spot, with a "more from hubpages" under the second one which took me to the images from almost every one of my Hubs. I also had a couple of images from Amazon, of all places.
I am on page 2. Of course I get cute little fox pics when I search my name. Awwwww.....
We are the first image on the results page to a 2Patricias image search! Followed by images from various hubs.
That was fun - thanks for suggesting it.
lol at comments..
It looks like gamegirls is the most exciting find so far lol..........Mark, I had a few words with the main man and your on page 3 now:)...Whitney05 looks like the biggest find here..very popular indeed;)...2patricias, im glad you found this as much fun and excitement as i did..I dont have to keep telling you all im easily pleased and have far too much time on my hands at times!! lol....
Keep em coming and any other information, importance, or relavance to this find!!
Have a nice day guys n gals;)
Unfortunately, you've picked a nickname that relates to a very common image. My name happens to be unusual, although it doesn't sound as though it should be.
Choose a name that doesn't consist of 2 very commonly used dictionary words.
Or why not use your real name ???
This is kind of freeky. My name is unusual so I'm on the first page but also as far as I can tell all the hubs I've left comments on and all the hubbers who's fan I'm and who is my fan are all pictured there...weird
Wow. pages of em. weird. every 45 I've scanned in too. my fans , people I'm fans of. and in one case people that were on the same tag page.
would it be wise for me to change my title? Is that even possible?
I think I read somewhere that once you have your name you're stuck with it as you can't transfer your existing hubs. But you can start a new account.
I don't think you can, but you've only got 7 Hubs - so if you were to delete them and start a new account, you wouldn't have lost much.
None of my images come up until page 15! I think the tip would be to create a unique screename when you first sign up.
well I do like a good challenge, so it looks like I have got a lot of good writing to do to be the best drummer boy. Hopefully I will show up someday.
The image search seems more random than anything else. I got different results several times I tried it.
does it help if you put more pictures on the internet for everyone to see? Is there a way of posting pictures on googles site?
Three of my photos appear on the first page of image search, two of them from hubpages and one from blogspot. Photos #4, 5, and 11. But when I do a web search, there's this voice over talent with my name that appears multiple times. I'm still on the first page though, no. 8.
this is a great question. i never really thought of google image searching my profile name. But both ripplemaker and my real name "michelle simtoco" all showed up my picture.
Yayy!!, im glad you are all having fun with this one and hope its helping you all in one way or another
I would like to add help with useful tips and information about this subject but i cant!
watching this space!
I had to go 28 pages, but I found my image. What came up was page 12 of my hubtivity.
What fun! My profile name comes up on results page 1 in slots #1, #2 and #3, but under the pix of others in Family Tree, Family History, and Hobbies. However...<G>...I'm thrilled to learn I'm a Top Hubber in Family History! Whoo hoo!
Why worry about it? As several people have said, whether your name shows up on search engines has absolutely NOTHING to do with your success. You want people to find your articles on search engines - you really don't care whether they can find you by name!
Like I said, if it really bothers you, why not save your Hub text, delete your Hubs, start a new account with a more unique name and repost them.
A name that would work under a gOOgle images search would be something like Britney Spears naked pictures lol, but im not sure if this would be allowed and there is no way i could or would even think about tranfering all my hubs (340) to new name and as you mentioned its really about search engines...
I'm on the first page but I think this name is rather more common than I thought.
On the first page I have two different dog images. on 11th and 12th.
Weird eh. But lot of people with my name...pretty common sort evidently.
Im just hoping after this thread i started, has helped everyone and not made anyone lose sleeep!!
I also am sure you have all already Tried just Google Searching your name!? im 8 on the 1st page but its very unlikely anyone will ever type compu-smart in Google images OR Google Search!:
Well, you can tell that I am a food writer...9 pages of images...nearly all food. LOL!
Well, in the first 100 images there's two of me, one of my german shepherd when he was a pup, and a couple of images from sites I'm involved with.
The rest of them are mainly people from hub pages, and images from hubs.
Wow. when I've been here a bit longer, with a bit of luck, my face might not even make it into the first 200
I just imaged searched your name and your 1st on the 1st page!!. I also can see the person in the picture with you much better than your profile pic!
Regards to choosing a name that would show up with popular search keywords would be good but its still a minefield of possible pros n cons!! at least i hope this knowledge will give people lots to think about before finally decideing on choosing or changing a profile name!!
The first image that comes up on a search for my name is this one:
From a hubpages forum discussion
I forgot to ask you Mark, hows your backswing?
Yeah, having a semi-famous tennis player named after you certainly doesn't help. I do have 4 of the first 10 references on a web search, but I am competing with a bunch of newspapers for the images
That Beyonce woman gets in the way a little too
I have at least 10 pages but my flickr is first then a whole bunch of hubpages.
Among the dumb things that I can't do, googling was one I leaned earlier in my short internet life. I started with my real name and my husband's name hoping to find some lost relatives... then my pen name when I first started my wordpress blog. What resulted in a discovery of 'blog scrapper', which I didn't know ever existed in my pre-scammer web worldview, keeps me in awe of google's power.
It was just my playful curiosity that brought me to test Mighty Google, and stupidity turned to serendipity...that took me playing web detective until 4am. This accidental discovery had shaped the last 4 months of my blog life at wordpress. It's continuing to direct my blogging path until I could learn to do plugins that could probably protect me from these blog scrapers. It seems that blog scrapping was more profitable before it was known to many.
I should say, I'm glad it also took me to HubPages as well as broadens my blogging views...even if I have to face many technological challenges that's driving me nuts.
I'm on page 4 after all the gory pictures of the lattimus dorsi muscle all cut up and stuff- yuck!
I bet your not even a fan of tennis either lol...
Im thinking that it could be a bonus having someone famous with the same name!!
I would think you have had hits to your pages because people may have initially been searching for a this tennis player and (field hockey) player and ended up at your pages which is all good;)

I just have seen this one. I have tried to search for “most beautiful bird” but I was surprised that Discover.com is ranked higher than Owlcation on Google. Any thought?

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.
by Shasta Matova 9 years ago
I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...

So hubbers help? I had four hubs that went from the pending state to having the featured status. Originally they were all viewed on the page where you can hop hubs.Now I dont no where they are? What does that mean? They all appear...
by Tony Sky 13 years ago
I, and im sure most of you have Google searched our hub profile name and also "Google image" searched, which was a topic I raised here a while ago!I have now just Searched my hubber name within the hubpages search bar (top right)..This shows you all the hubs with your profile name in it!...

When I go to my profile page I was shocked to see a big vertical banner advertising "fitness" for gay men, with a picture of a half-naked man. I find this inappropriate, at least as far as my profile is concerned. There is nothing in my profile or my hubs to suggest that such ads...
