In other words:
HP puts noindex on hub.
Google sees it and de-indexes hub.
Later, HP removes the noindex.
How long before Google discovers that?
In other words:
When Google's records indicate a page as noindex, does google initiate a different schedule to return, since google now perceives that page as dead?
30 days? 60 days? 90 days?
Or will google still regularly return to check things on the same schedule as if the page was not a known noindex?
You can use Google Webmaster Tools to have your hub fetched and then submit it to be indexed. Normally, within 24 hours, from my experience, Google will come by. I can tell by looking at the cached copy of the hub or on Goggle Webmaster tools which allows you to place your cursor over the submitted link and see the most current web page that Google has.
On Webmaster tools, click on your domain, then on "health", then "fetch with Google"....then you can "fetch" the hub, and then you will be given the option to have the hub "indexed."
I now "officially" have sleepers! Only a couple, but it did make me focus on what HP has shared in reasoning for the noindex tag. Not to be "mean" to us, but to actually help our domain by eliminating a thorn in the side, so to say. I have edited the two sleepers, but I shall now dwell upon them for the time being.
I feel that we, as authors, need to just overlook the many changes that HP is going through..... if we do not, then we deprive others from our writing abilities. HP becomes a huge distraction for our creative thought process. HP cripples the authors with worries and such...changes.... do this, don't do this, do that, opps, you should not have had that one extra pixel, so we have unpublished your six hours of hard work.... I shall hush now before I dig my grave, lol.
No one can answer this exactly. Does Google presently find your Hubs? When you post a new Hub, how long does it take Google to find it? The Google search engine crawls HugPages daily. To facilitate finding a "lost Hub", create new links to it and, perhaps, change where it is filed in the directory (the HubPages Topic). But first, HubPages has to allow Google to access the Hub. Until HubPages does that, Google won't index that page.
I would expect google to see a newly "wakened" hub within a day or two, particularly if it is heavily interlinked with other hubs. Once found, it should be indexed within a few hours.
As writerfox says, your subdomain will be crawled daily and if it finds links it can follow it won't take long to find the hub.
In addition, if you see that HP has "reinstated" a sleeping hub, you could always tell WMT to index it.
Hi Wilderness. Google crawls the main URL, hubpages.com, daily. That does NOT mean that it crawls your individual sub domain daily. The hubpages.com domain has over 4.5 million pages! Google last crawled your sub domain on August 17, at 9:42 GMT.
Well, two knowledgeable folks have essentially said, "Google still regularly returns to check things on the same schedule as if the page was not a known noindex."
So, all is well once again in the known universe.
The trouble is, Google doesn't tell us how often the inky dinky spider comes by!
I am fairly sure it takes less than a week, but beyond that I wouldn't like to place bets.
Google last crawled your sub domain (your profile page) on August 15 at 19:03 GMT. The way you find this out is:
Past your sub domain URL (or the URL of the individual Hub you would like to check) into the Google search box and click enter. When the results appear, locate the URL you are looking for, point your curser to the search results (DON'T CLICK), and two grey arrows will appear to the right of your listing. Click on the two grey arrows. Another column will appear to the right. Click on the blue word cached. This will take you to the picture of your page that was stored the last time Google crawled the page. At the top in a grey box, Google will show you the last time your page was crawled.
Mine hasn't been crawled since July 15th. Does that mean anything I wrote after that date needs to be submitted to Google?
We don't know. Hopefully, not too long.

I am seeing a lot of forum posts around here that tend to support my following hypothesis:
1. Person publishes new hub.
2. Google, as usual, quickly ambles by. And discovers the Pending-noindex status.
3. Google leaves, but remembers the noindex classification.
4. Google "never" the hell comes back again...
