I published on the 28th, and google hasn't found my hub yet. I've seen tweets of mine for the hub at #5 on the first page.
I've backlinked it on approx. 40 squidoo lenses on the 30th. Got pretty disgusted tonight with google, so I 'pinged' it.
I keep reading about how google is fast at indexing hubs, but are these hubs that they're indexing from 'established' authors?
Most of my hubs are indexed with 12 hours. A few have taken a day or two. I do a lot of back linking.
Hummmm, wonder what the problem is with mine?
Mine take like 5-7 days to index. Though I only do 1 or 2 backlinks to various related blogs.
I find that my EzineArticles get listed in google within 3 to 5 days, yet I my hubs here (All 2 of them!) still have to be found on google
Keep in mind that both you guys have three hubs between you, thats why you arent indexed in google! Write more hubs and you'll see the new ones index in google much quicker.
My first hub took 3 days to index but the new ones now only take about an hour or so to be indexed. I'm quite surprised at how quick the do get indexed.
With over 100 Hubs, mine takes a hour to a week.
The replies/results are all over the board! I've had no trouble at all getting lenses indexed, that's why I thought it might be because I was a new author here..........so I linked my new hub on my lenses.
This really is interesting to me, since I'm kinda a geek at digging out stats.
I'm thinking the delay may be 'topic'.
What do you think?
Hummm Retellect, I read the thread you posted, and I do hope others will keep it going so I can read more.
My situation (with no amazon or ebay links) IS what you're claiming will help get a hub indexed quicker........but my situation is not helping you prove the point....as I'm still not indexed by google.
Woo Hoo! I've got some changing to do now. I SWEAR I could not pull up my hub when doing site:...... in a google search until just a few minutes ago.
Google claims they cached it on Oct. 30th, 2 days after I published it.
NOW, to re-write the first paragraph & help it climb in the results!
