    I meant to write "NO" views
    I periodically check for copied material and just a few minutes ago I checked the title of one of my hubs that shows 0 views... it came up first on the first page on Google no yet!
    Whats going on?
    I have many hubs on the first page of the search engines yet my traffic is zero?These were very popular for some time until a month ago...

      Are you searching for the exact titles of your hubs or are you searching for more general phrases that one might type into the search bar?

          Put yourself in the shoes of someone using google.  What would they type in the search bar if they were looking for the sort of information your hubs cover.

    As Jesimpki said.. And also, are you signed into your google account while checking? Because if at all you or any of the people in your circles +1'd your hub or if you shared it on G+ it would rank high in Google even though it actually doesn't.

    You said they were doing well and now have they gone to 0 traffic as you say or did it just decrease?

          Do you use a software to keep track of the rank of the keywords you target? Most use Market Samurai and stuff, but that's not free. I use Cute Rank - its cool for tracking one domain - My hubpages one. If you want to track multiple you'd have to pay though.

    Remember, it may show first for you, but that doesn't mean that it has that rank.

      yes,rank and views are different but it doesn't make sense to be first and show no views

        yes, I know, but that doesn't mean that others see it first when doing a search. [Your search history is saved in your browser cache to find pages quicker, unless you clear if frequently.] You could check webmaster tools to see what keywords are used to find your article, it also gives the position in the search results.

    You said you were searching the exact titles of your hubs. How many people are SEARCHING the exact titles of your hubs? You can rank #1 for "blue striped pigeon poop" but if no one is searching that term you'll never get a hit.

    And as other members have said, Google no longer serves up the same results to everyone. Results are changed based on sites you visit, previous search history and location - Google does its best to bring back results it thinks you want.
