Maybe it's just me, but I have yet to see any hub on the top page in SERP for anything. What about you? I'm not just talking about my own hubs, I'm saying all hubs in general never rank very high. The only way I am even able to find one is if I use the "intitle" operator, otherwise, forget about it.
Dave, that is not unusual. #1 - #3 are a highly competitive listings. They usually go to topic specific sites that focus on the exact query.
For instance... a hub on pimples or kitchen redesign may be excellent, and maybe even the best resource for what the searcher is looking for - but... the big money sites that pay for expert SEO and Ads - and focus entirely on the topic - will generally still outrank that hub.
In my opinion, if a hub can crack page 1 it is a good hub. Still I have seen hubs rank #1. Back when Hurricane Katrina hit there was a hub that ranked #1. It was all about the pictures and keywords.
I forgot what the explanation was but it had something to do with Google knowing what you search for. If several people used same words in their browser for a search, not every person is going to have the same thing on the first page.
Thank you GA, that makes a lot of sense. But same time, I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that the links on most of these hubs are nofollow? Then you also have the matter of subdomain vs rootdomain, and just the whole advertizing nature of hubpages in general.

I have been on hubpages for two months. I have read multiple articles on SEO and backlinking. Ninety percent of my hubs do not have backlinking. But I choose for a while to say no backlinking. It was "different" I thought and "original". ...

I just updated my HubPages profile a couple days ago and in my profile linked to some of my favorite hub topics that I wrote about. Is this bad to do this since on the profile page we have those same hubs randomly come up below? I just don't want overkill but like the thought that I've got my...

LOL I had to reply to this. I was waiting for Isaballa to do it, but I am happy to oblige.1. There are only 15000 results for that search term2. This is possibly the most patronising thread I have seen on the forums.3. This is not the place to promote your poorly punctuated, lacking in content,...

Hey fellow hubbers,I've been posting quite a few hubs recently and I've also been doing quite a lot of SEO for them however, there is some part of the puzzle that just isn't clicking for me. Most of the people that are coming to my hubs are bouncing, my bounce rate is 78%. Can you look at just 1...

Do any of you have people following you, but they have not writen any hubs, yet these people...have some 5-50 people following them? And, do you think that it is possible that these people may copy hubs and try to pass them on as their own?
