My hub isnt showing up when I use the HubPages search tool

    Hello,

    I created and published a new hub about 4 hours ago. When I search the title and/or relevant keywords in the hubpages search tool, my hub isnt listed. There are some completely non relevant results that come up, but not my very relevant hub. Can anyone help me understand?  Thanks

      Maybe wait a wee bit longer than 5 hours before you start searching.

      Give it a day or two.

    Thanks for reply. Didn't realize it wouldn't show up immediately. Thanks again.

      Hi Expert Advice,

      Thanks very much for reporting this issue.

      All search results should update within 2-4 hours (usually, even sooner).

      This was caused by a bug which has now been fixed.

        I'll be filing that tit-bit of information away for future reference.

        Can a low HubScore or Hubber Score effect the indexing of a hub in the HP search results?

          Hi Darkside,

          Search by Relevance is currently ordered by hub score so a lower hub score will have a lower placement in the list of search results. 

          As long as the hub is published, it should get indexed.
