I was checking my stats today and had a question. I am not a technical person so I'm not quite sure what it means. Some of my hubs have been crawled by google within a certain number of hours, but some of them have not been crawled in 7 - 10 days. How often does google crawl hubs and should I be worried if they have not in that long a time?
Thanks in advance for any help.
Google crawls Hubs based on Google's own algorithm which determines the most important pages on the website. Presently, Google indexes over 450,000 pages on the HP website, and they are crawled at different intervals. Some of the priority is determined by how frequently a webpage changes and if new backlinks pointing to the page are discovered. If your Hub is not crawled frequently, it is nothing to worry about so long as it is in the Google index and is ranking well.
Join Google+. I've heard that adding them there helps to get them crawled faster.
Here's a great place for you to post your hubs on Google+...it's a blogging community I started. Here's the link: https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities … 7493843154 Love to have you and anyone else who is interested.
Also consider adding your pages to StumbleUpon.
Get some backlinks to you Hubs to get it indexed faster and cross link from some of your older Hubs that seems to work as well.
Having a Twitter or Facebook link (social bookmarks) is a great way to get quickly indexed. And super easy. Most of my hubs are indexed in max. 3 days.

I know there's been an update on Google that has cut Hubpages traffic by 20% across the board but I noticed on all of my popular hubs that Google and Bing haven't crawled them in 10 days! Is this normal? Or has Google...

I have hubs within a couple of niches which I don't cover all that much; meaning, I don't have that many hubs in those niches. A good number of those hubs have a high bounce rate. So, I'm considering unpublishing those,...
