I have recently joined HubPages community and have written two hubs that have featured status. One of the hubs was written ~10 days ago. Neither of these, however, are being indexed by Google. I have submitted both hubs for indexing via Google Webmaster Tools yet that does not give any results either. Is this normal? Any idea how this problem might be solved?
Have just checked one of your hubs - Chemistry Problem Solving Stratiegies.. and it is indeed indexed within Google...
However you may want to look at your spelling in the title!!
The other hub is also indexed....
Do you know how to check?
Oh yes - they are indexed, though Webmaster Tools imply otherwise and provide no further information. Google itself does not seem to show much affection for these hubs either, but that is a different problem I guess. Any idea whether the index position will rise with time?
Thanks for swift help
Traffic will very much depend on two main factors -
How many people are searching for your keywords, you can use the google keyword tool to find this out.
How much competition there is for your keywords - so if there are long standing respected review sites that already have the review why would yours outrank them - if there are respected homework help sites that explain how to do the chemistry stuff how would you outrank them??
If there are no searches or too much competition then you are not going to get much love from Google...
Can someone please teach me how to check if your hub is indexed by Google.

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...

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 love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here...
