On 5th Sept I published an article on HP. It got featured after 24 hours but when I am searching it on Google, I can't find it. What could be the reason? Your answer will help me to understand the matter.
If you go to your account and click on the title is the hub published? Are there any warnings next to it?
Thanks for your reply.
The point is when I published it on 5th Sept then it was fine and till now there is no warning. Only 'pending' sign at the end was showing up.but after 24 hours it is showing that light colored dot that means the symbol of 'featured'. That shows there is no problem at HP then what's the matter with google indexing. Just can't understand. If this is the disadvantage of featured and so on markings then we hubbers will definitely suffer and lag behind. I am really surprised and unhappy.
There seems to be a delay with Google indexing Hubs, sometimes hours but often people are finding that it's taking days. I don't think anyone knows why, but it started to be noticed around the time the 'idle/pending/featured' hubs came in. submit the URL in Google Webmaster Tools (Health>Fetch enter the URL then click on 'Fetch' then when you get a green tick under 'fetch status' click the 'submit to index' next to it). I think someone on another thread said this usually makes google index it within about 24 hours.

Elsewhere on the forums people are reporting very long delays in getting indexed by Google - the delays seem to be increasing. Obviously this has been caused by the NOINDEX tag added to new hubs when under review and to...

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks....
