Hi, I've done a few hubs but can't get arrested on Google. Don't yet have an AdSense account but know I must produce more hubs to qualify. Meantime, what must I do to get my hubs at least on the the top 10 pages? Aarggh!
Apart from writing quality hubs, you need to do keyword research. You can use Google's AdWords keyword tool. Also, be sure to use appropriate tags, write a summary, and place your important keywords in the title and opening paragraph.
Thanks for the information. I appreciate your taking the time to help me out here.
You are welcome. Things take time, quality content may slowly rise. Sometimes, you can get ranked without even knowing exactly why. Links from reputable sites to your hubs can also be very helpful - if someone likes your hub, they may link to it, so that the number of backlinks increase over time.
You should also know that humor is a very tough genre in which to make any money. It is probably only marginally easier than poetry..
You should also submit your hubs to Google.
Why? They usually find mine in about 24 hours.
Thanks, savanahl. I didn't know I could do that -- just finished up.

I have been on Hub Pages about a year and I have written about 27 Hubs and they have received close to 5000 views, which I felt was not bad and my status hovers between 82-88. Last week I had about 8 of my Hubs featured, which again seemed ok. Now magically overnight, I have all these codes now...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

I'm wondering if creative writing - poetry and personal narratives - is appropriate content for a hub?

I understand that traffic can fluctuate during different times of the year. Seen it happen myself -- traffic decline in summer and rise near holidays. However, I fear something is wrong like I have either been affected by a Google algorithm or something else. My traffic has been continuing to...

On Friday we rolled out a way to quickly solicit feedback on Hubs that aren’t Featured for quality. If you have a Hub that is not Featured, all you need to do is click on the link at the bottom of the email you received. Clicking the link will post a brief message to the Improving Your Hub Forum...
