    Hi all!
    I was just doing a little keyword research and found a few 'jems' that I am thinking about pursuing.  I'm relatively new to this and the whole keyword research thing, but I am wondering:

    I've seen a few first page Google results for keywords that have had articles written about them over at Ezine, Suite101 and eHow.

    Those articles don't have particularly good PR...maybe 2 or 3 at the most, so I'm wondering if a Hubpages article targeting the same keyword phrase would outrank an Ezine/Suite101/eHow article with a PR 3?  These are sitting at probably position 4 to 6 on the first page of Google results.

    Anyone have any insight on this?

    Your PR and ranking in the SERPs is going to largely depend on the number and quality of backlinks that you have going to it.

    The short answer is yes--a hub has as good a chance as anything else at outranking pages from Suite101, eHow, eZine or any other like site.

    I've found that HubPages can out compete almost anything as long as you do the correct amount of both on page and off page optimization.

    I know that sounds a bit vague, but you sound like you know what your talking about, so I trust you know all the details.

    Apart from PR don't forget to check the inbound links pointing to the competing pages. You can outrank those sites with quality inlinks to our hub.

    Your writing quality will help as well. Some (well a lot) of the eHow and eZine stuff is total rubbish.

    Thanks for the replies everyone!

    BrettB...yeah, that's what I gathered from visiting those "articles" lol

    Top...great advice, thanks!

    Vanchen...I know what you're talking about!  I'm no expert, believe me, but I know the basics from the past couple years of writing articles online.

    Irohner...a wealth of knowledge as always!  The reason why I posted this topic is because I used to write over at Ezine (then I found Hubpages big_smile) and I've learned that they have been getting beat out in the SERPS as of late.  When I saw those types of articles showing page 1 results, I figured a Hub could knock them down a peg...had to ask!
