i created my first hub this morning and am excitedly doing a HubPages search for my keyphrase, hoping to see my post.
but it just aint showing up!
under my account, my hub indicates that it was successfully published so is there some sort of time lag that i should take into account?
I'm sure it varies from hubber to hubber. Mine usually start generating search engine traffic within a day or two. But I do believe in backlinks. And don't consider a hub really published until I add a link or two to it.
Other hubbers have reported much success without backlinks, so it may not be necessary.
hooray! thank you. i guess all it took was a bit of patience though it is confusing for a newbie like me when the post said almost immediately that it had successfully published yet there was a several hour delay for it to show up in HubPages search. thank you again, nelle for your reply and suggestions.
