I just found my newest hub rated well at Bing and Yahoo. It is still not indexed by Google. This is progress in my humble opinion. I'm happy to find it anywhere.
Last weekend I went from virtually no Yahoo or Bing traffic to the vast majority coming from Yahoo and Bing. They were more than double Google. During this increase, Google made a huge drop. I have seen Yahoo and Bing continue, but Google continues to drop.
I saw this happen once before about 2 years ago with my traffic. It seems (in my observsation) that Google drops when Yahoo and Bing pick up. May not be the same with others, but I have seen this with my hubs.
Key is though that I am getting more traffic now. I wonder if the changes HP is making is influencing this change with Yahoo and Bing.
This is good news. Happy for you. Now how did you come to find this information. I'd like to check my status. Thanks.
I'm finding some of my hubs on Bing and some on Yahoo. Some of my top hubs on Google aren't on bing or yahoo. My traffic has not picked up from them. Traffic is very low now.
I have same experience with you. Some of my hub already indexing in Bing and Yahoo. But Google not. Bing and Yahoo now compete with Google for traffic to my hub. I do not know why Google take times to indexing my new hub. Bing and Yahoo is faster. thanks
My latest hubs did well on Yahoo and bing for a week getting 100+ visits each a day (The latest 6 hubs that I published). But, after a week it all died off and just a few google views. I can see the ranks rise in google but, the boost from the other places is now 0.
Google is still a puzzle to me. I know some people say their traffic is good. I am happy about Bing and Yahoo indexing fairly quickly. The traffic in general disappoints me. Working on backlinks might help. so I am spending time on Pinterest. Someone has already alerted staff about slow indexing.

I know the more exposure we have, the more chances for page views. That is not what I am asking about here. I am wondering if we are effected by the quantity of hubs over the quality of maybe a smaller number of hubs.I...

Hubbers, I'm sorry that we can't tell you why your traffic is going down or why Google was showing Hubs on hubpages.com and now has reverted to showing them on the subdomain. We are similarly frustrated. We...

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....

I have had a real drop in views over the past few weeks, and as others have too, I just presumed it was Google panda or the usual drop we often get. But I decided to check in google search, and something strange has...
