Just wanted to share! It gets 120 searches a day but is worth completely nothing. Dare say it won't be number 1 for long, but it's a good feeling while it's there
Competition is 500,000 for the broad phrase.
Where are you taking that competition statistic from IzzyM?
I know IzzyM recently got her free trial of Market Samurai so I'm assuming she's been using that!
Congrats IzzyM! I can't wait till I make it there
It's great! I actually have another hub at number 1, but its not a .com search term as it is an English phrase. I didn't know that until I saw my poor wee hub didn't even make the front page of google.co.uk.
But this one is number 1 on both Woo-hoo!
Well done Izzy! With your ability to figure out the stats, you might be able to figure out how to turn it into a buy keyword.
Are you talking about your Mediterranean sharks hub?
I do see some Adsense ads there that might have some value and of course you can sale those Amazon products.
How did you figure out it was that one? lol
Yes it is, worth nothing but its nice to be 'up there' I wrote it out of interest, before I knew anything about keyword research or it'd never have got written!
Congrats, IzzyM! I can hear the excitement. One of my website's keywords (not HP) made it to Google's page 2, and even that got me so excited. I can't wait to get to page one myself!
Thanks GG! I had another hub that got to number 2 during the week, after sitting at around number 5 for weeks, then hours later it disappeared completely! Maybe it got google-slapped or something, but I checked as far back as page 3 and then gave up.
Pity, cos it was worth $300 for the number one spot!
Well done Izzy nice to see good things happening for you, well deserved.
Way to go, IzzyM!
I'm a bit in the dark as to how you're using MS to analyze your hub for phrases - but it seems like it's a valuable technique. Do they have a video that explains this?
Way to go Izzy! It takes some good hard work to accomplish that - you've don well. Although I've got several on first page, none better than about #4 or #5. Just not in your class yet.
The search term is definitely not worth 0, use it for traffic! Build another hub on Mediterranean shark fishing, another one on Mediterranean sea diving advertise some books on mediteranian sharks!
It might not earn you much, but it can still earn!
Congratulations! And the hub is awesome! I am sure it will start brining you revenue pretty soon.
Thanks everyone for all the congrats
@SmartRookie, it was to do with adding the title keyword phrase into the first sentence of the hub. It was in the second sentence (I sometimes write long sentences) and it missed being picked up by the description tag (or whatever its called).
@Thisisoli, good idea MIght do after the challenge (already have my subjects picked out).
@Widerness - well done! You'll get there yet!
Anyway, read up cos I'm not there anymore, and number 3 looks stronger than mine. I'd need to go some to beat 1000 backlinks (I've none). Still, shows it can be done, eh?
WHen it comes to backlinks, a link is not a link. Pull in a few high quality backlinks, some good on page SEO and you can beat a site with 1000 trash backlinks.
Thank you so much Izzy. Blind leading the blind? I think not!
Being #1 on a google search is awesome, congratulations! Enjoy it while you can and I agree with Oli, leverage it for all it's worth. Not that I know anything near where you guys are at when it come to the internet
Izzy that is amazing news! Way to go .. .but maybe you should reconsider using it for the challenge.

I just checked my 700 Billion Dollar Bailout Bill hub and I've been getting a bunch of views from google news. Does that mean the hub is close to the top in news or??? I am trying to find where it is but can't find it- this is cool!!I also had my best day in google adsense since being on HubPages....

I finally published my tenth (actually, more than ten as I'm up to number 11) hub and got what looks like a bronze medal. Woohoo! I wonder if my achieving this milestone is the reason I see fireworks outside my window?

I wrote a hub about a boy named Jovit Balidivino who sings so well, i didnt intend to earn or anything by that hub and then somebody emailed me and wanted to post it in a blog, what will I say? He said he saw it on the first page on google

I just published my 120th hub today, and finally my hubscore went up to 96! I've watched it gradually creep on up from the low 80s (when a bunch of Squidoo lenses transferred over, maybe even high 70s). I have no idea how much this matters, but just thought I'd share!
