    I've seen a lot of terms where hubpages doesn't rank high, even though some hubpages are keyword optimized and have loads of internal backlinks. What's the matter?

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    That's hard to say without seeing the actual hub but google and hubpages have a great relationship.

    Build your hub and build backlinks for it and it will rank.

    I hate hubpages. They closed all my hubs. And these were making me some cash here and there.

    Right now i have encountered about 15 keywords for which hubpage doesn't rank? It's very strange.

    Tags are important in hub pages... tag to other very popular hubs and that may help you.

    In my experience google likes hubpages quite a lot right now. Its not like the old days where you could throw up a squidoo or hubpage and it would automatically rank well, but with backlinks they do great.

    Google did slap sites like Squidoo and Hubpages a while back, so they don't work as well as before.

    However, they still do well.
    It all depends on how you use them.
