"How long does it take Google, Bing, Yahoo to update"
For example: I just changed all of my titles to long tailed keywords since my original ones were vague. But, Google isn't recognizing the new titles. I would like to see if the new titles will increase traffic, but since it is displaying them as old titles/ incorrect links in the search it doesn't help.
I'm almost tempted to deleted the Hubs, and then remake them with the new titles.
You can take care of this quickly. Go to Google Webmaster, click on your account here, then click "health" then click "fetch with Google." Once fetched you will have the option to have the hub indexed. This usually will take place within hours once submitted.
Don't delete them!!!
It can take several days for google to re-index your hubs. Give it some time.
Google "caches" or copies webpages it puts in searches. It takes the information you see in searches off these copies. When it revisits your page it will "recache" it and the search results will include your new keywords. It can take a few days or weeks. Try pinging them to hurry up the process.
Deleting them would reset your hub age to 0. And age is important with Google.

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

I have a hub that gets anywhere from 200-300 views every single day. It's an evergreen hub. Unfortunately, if I type the title in GOOGLE it's not ranking anywhere near 1st page. However, it is on the 2nd or 3rd page for...
