Twice I've had a hub land on the front page of Google. Actually one still sits there today. I intended it to be a backlink for my webpage. My webpage can no longer be found, but my Hub is yet standing firm. Can anyone explain this phenomenon?
You seem to have two questions in there so:
1. Hubpages has much higher page authority with google than your site (unless you own a site with thousands of backlinks and a good domain age.) That means google automatically ranks a hub on the same subject/keyword as your website, higher than your site on that search.
2. What's the keyword? You can rank number one for purple pigeon poo, but if no one's searching it, it doesn't mean much.

Does anyone have good suggestions for forums, widgets, websites or software for SEO and creating 'good' backlinks and/or other suggestions? This is for my Hubs as well as a Wordpress.org blog. I want to gain traffic and eventually make more money.
