Where did you check? If you simply type your keyword into Google, you'll usually see your content in an incorrect position - Google keeps track of you by location and search and visiting history, meaning it's aware you visit Hubpages a lot and will likely put those pages higher.
To correctly check your rank for a particular keyword there are plenty of tools including:
