So I posted a well written sales hub about Baseball Glove Oil. I saw it was instantly indexed around the third page on google. So I went really hard to promote this article and submitted about 40-50 backlinks. I went back to check it today and it went down a page.. Could you guys explain why this has happened?
Thanks in advance!
it looked like spam links to google... the links have to be consistent and not 50 one day and 0 the next 10 days.
Alright thanks. So how do I reverse the effect? Is this hub doomed forever?
Just give it time. It's not unusual for a new hub to rank very highly very quickly, and then fall to the back of the pack for a while. Your hub is so new, it just might be the normal course of things and not necessarily due to the backlinking (although you got some good advice about that).
fresh content bonus - google dance
I doubt your backlink spree has even been indexed/measured yet.
You havent mentioned the time frame of the 50 backlinks? A big domain,web 2.0 and all can usually handle some bursts of links w/o any complaint from the google monster - not wise to do for smaller sites though.
hmmm, now I notice your profile is 2 days old..so theres the answer to that question!
How did you get 50 backlinks, care to share?
Thats interesting sunforged, how would the age of the profile change things from a search engines point of view?
just answers my question as to how long the 50 links were spread out over..couldnt have been more than 2 days.
40 links is not really a great problem for HubPages. Form a links point of view the site in total probably picks up thousands of links every day. If it is a problem associated to links it’s more likely to be the issue is the type of links, if all 40 are from blog comments for example then flags will be raised. Spread links over different types of resources, blogs, social media, press release sites, article syndication etc and alternate the link text.
It quite normal for a hub to fade quickly after a good initial ranking, it’s the way Google treats hubs and blog posts. Continued link building will bring it back. And as sunforged points out those links might not even be indexed yet.

The current hub score is ok but not a great measurement of a hub or the quality of the "title." I would like to suggest adding a new column that shows the current Google Page Rank number of the hub. This...

The Google Webmaster Tools provides a page rank number for pages that they have listed for you. Are these true numbers. If they say Page 2 for a particular hub, does that mean it is on Page 2 of Google...
