I was monitoring my hubs SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) in Google using some software. Most were top 10 for keywords I was targeting. I've looked this morning and not one of then is ranking for any of the keywords - literally every single one has fallen out of Google
anyone know why this is?
Google have made another update in the last few days so you may see a lot of changes which should settle after a few more days to a week or two... unless you used unethical linking methods in which case you can probably kiss any serps position goodbye..
You have only been on here for 2 weeks, it can take a few weeks for any page to settle into a position in the serps and you will see a lot of fluctuation at the start.. Give it time and allow them to "mature" a little - there is little instant success with the internet today!
Read the learning center, learn about SEO and then go away and look at what is actually ranking for the keywords and think for yourself about what will really work...... most SEO stuff that you read now is likely to be out of date due to the rate at which good ole google is making changes..
I had a basic knowledge in SEO, at least enough to use keywords, backlink etc (though I wasn't backlinking here). My other main sites seem to be ok, but my hubpages sub domain takes a whack!
Maybe this is all just a google dance as fairly new, but not really seen one act like this, hence the comment!
Cross fingers everything will come back ok again, just really miffed after spending so much work to see it all disappear!
also have to realize, that where we post our own links, at some other site they may have got 'G' slapped they go down, bringing you with them.

I now have 11 hubs that are not indexed by google - nothing published since July 12 (the last one was published on the 9th and indexed yesterday). Normally I've seen then set up with 24 hours, occasionally in 48, but now it's 8 days and not done!!??

Since I joined HP there has been a constant battle against the rise and fall of traffic. We are often encouraged to tune our titles, edit our content and generally try to improve our Hubs. Now with the threat of having Hubs unfeatured, as well as the new quality assessment process taking place...

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?
