Been searching my hub titles on Google to see how they are ranking. I decided to search for the link to one with the "http://link" What I found were all backlinks to my hub but nothing pointing directly at my hub save for one comment.
What puzzles me is that the comment a person made ranks, but my hub is non existent as far as Google is concerned. I am not sure if what I concluded is right. If anyone knows anything please reply.
I posted a reply similar to this in another thread, but a short recap...
I have seen some strange Google serps also.
A couple hubs I searched for were returned in the serps - but under my profile link instead of the hub link. stranger still - the returned serp description was the hub's title and summary, but the clickable search link was to my profile - not the hub.
hmmm.... something doesn't seem right.
I think something may be wrong with Google's scripting of their bots since Panda. But I may be wrong about that also.
I'm no expert here but my guess would be that the Google bots have just crawled the article directories and just not Hub Pages yet for you. Be patient and keep checking, it will eventually find your Hub. Just the fact you have a backlink in an article directory goes a long way with Google.
Still...I can see why you're annoyed!
I do know if you have created a new blog, site, etc that link will not work if Google has not indexed it yet.
It is not a new blog. It is a hub that was published on Dec. 15, 2008. it has always been one of my top hubs and still is in fact in the top 5 at this time.
EDIT: It just fell out of the top 5 but still getting traffic (more than most of my hubs). At this time it ranks number 3 as far as traffic.

I am curious what you think about people that post links to their other sites (hubpages or others)?I have been getting lots of comments but that have links to my hubs, and it seems they are trying to promote their stuff on my pages. I am curious what you think about this and others as well....

It is important to actually read the hub you are commenting on. It seems that every time I publish a hub I get at least one comment saying something that proves they didn't read the hub. In the future I will be deleting these comments even though they are well intentioned. It will better for your...

I attempt to try my best to improve my traffic and increase my earnings of Google Adsense, but it seems that I can still earn only a little per day. Do you have any tip and suggestion on how to get more traffic for your hubs at Hubpages?

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

If an outside souce puts up a backlink with a "nice message" to one of your hubs in the comments section, is it good to approve the comment, or do you deny it straight away, or do you see if you can put up a backlink on their website. Some feedback would b appreciated, Thank you!
