Just curious to find out if my hub has been indexed by Google. It was created over 2 weeks ago..Any suggestions would be appreciated.
If you do a search on Google with the title of your Hub in quotation marks, you'll see that it has been indexed. If you take away the quotation marks, you'll see your "competition" for attention on Google (at the moment, your Hub is not on the first page of results).
Do a Google search with this format:
url = http://hubpages.com/hub/my-hub
(Don't click this link. It is going nowhere. it is just an example)
When you create a hub, you are asked to give a web address.
You can use this format for other major search engines too. Google indexes hubs very quick. My hub was index in less than 12 hour. If your hub does not have any serious problems, such as duplicated content, your hub should have been indexed long time ago. But that does not mean too much. If the search result for your major keywords ranks low, you get little or none traffic from SEs. Go to your hub page and click VIEW STATS button, you will see where your traffic comes from.
If you are having trouble getting a hub indexed by Google try what I did. I published my first hub at 10pm, did a digg on the hub and by 7am the next morning the hub had been indexed and the digg was #1 on Google for my keyword.

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....
