As of yesterday my hub ranked very highly in google for most of my search terms. Today it is completely gone from google....not even listed at all. Also on the stats page of my hub there are no incoming hits from any where but hubpages.com. Yesterday I had hits coming in from multiple sources including google, stumble upon, digg, ect. Which were all listed. Today all gone except hubpages - very strange!
Can anyone explain what is the cause of this? Going from page 1 in google to nothing at all really is the pitts. Help Please!!
There could be a lot of reasons.
Could you specify an url of your hub so I can take a look?
i checked out your hub and I did a google search, it is on the first page of google ranking.....JIMMY
Jimmy - Thanks for getting back to me. What search term did you use to find a #1 page rank. I can not find it anywhere. I am using metro west ma real estate as the search term. Thanks for your help.
Do you know why the other sources are no long in the stats page of my hub?
Fitter - this is my url - http://hubpages.com/hub/Real_Estate_in_ … est_Boston
Actually I may be losing my mind but could have sworn that the url was something else a few days ago. Don't rememeber it being so long. Thanks for taking a look.
Hm. Everything seems fine with your hub.
Temporary getting out from Google index is normal now.
Some of my hubs have the same thing - they are gone for few days and than come back on their positions.
Btw, here is the service I'm using for my hubs to check rankings:
Please take a look, it's VERY useful.
Hi Fitter - its normal for it to be removed completely? I entered my url into google search and the search tool you just mentioned and it says its not indexed in google. Call me crazy but I would think it would at least be in the data base?
The same thing has happened with me in relation to the hub stats,however I had a problem with my computer and reset the computer back one day to reset some data,so I thought that was the reason for me.
Yes, this happens fequently with Google. The best way to get a page to remain in the index is to build outside links from other relevant sites to the page. Usually, just a few good links will keep it in the index.
Do you know why it leaves? I could see it dropping way down in rank in the search pages but to be removed out of the data base completely seems real strange?
copy and past your hub title into google search....jimmy
Jimmy - I did and see that it is back listed again. It was not this morning.
I added it this morning to the google site submit and it is now back. Can you explain why it would fall out completely? I could see it dropping way down in page rank but don't understand why it would be removed?
it could just be that the google search spiders missed it and found it again on their next search
This is just the way Google works. They don't send a steady flow of traffic all the time. I would guess this is the price you pay for getting very quick ranking on terms. If you get suddenly great ranking, someone else loses it, right?
I have this Hub that I created because I couldn't find anything like it on the Web:
It jumps from ranking 2nd to nowhere, every other day or so.
It was Google getting ready to update. Actually the update is going on now...
Thanks for seodigger, Fitter.
You're right- it's a great tool.

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

I have read many forums over the last couple of months on how traffic to HubPages has dropped considerably since July. After much investigation I believe to have figured out what has caused this drop (and I don't think...

I have a hub that gets anywhere from 200-300 views every single day. It's an evergreen hub. Unfortunately, if I type the title in GOOGLE it's not ranking anywhere near 1st page. However, it is on the 2nd or 3rd page for...

The current hub score is ok but not a great measurement of a hub or the quality of the "title." I would like to suggest adding a new column that shows the current Google Page Rank number of the hub. This...

I noticed that one of my hubs used to be high on a google search list and it was getting quite a few hits on it. It was listed in the same way as the title of my hub. Today I searched on the same term and,...
