I now have 10 hubs, published from 8-27 to yesterday, that have not been indexed. A little checking also found 3 more that I changed the title on 2 weeks ago that still show the old title in a google search.
Have all the spiders died and quit crawling? Or is connected to the work to be done tomorrow? That's 23% of my hubs!
Try pinging your articles. I have heard this helps them to be found by search engines.
*You can search places to ping from.
If I haven't seen any change in a couple of days, I'll try that. I haven't the faintest how to do it, but bet I can find out! Thanks.
It is really simple. The pinging site I have in my bookmarks is Ping-o-Matic. http://pingomatic.com/
I had it bookmarked in such a way, that when I looked things up it pinged the last URL I had used. It is very, very simple!
Oh, and have you checked other search engines for your articles? Just 'cause google doesn't get to it right away does not mean it is not indexed somewhere. I get traffic from some pretty crazy places.
It takes them spiders a while to get around (8 legs notwithstanding). I changed my website's name about 4 months ago, with re-directs from the old to the new. According to Google Analytics, I'm getting some revived traffic to the old name, after I figured it had gone dead, as I had hoped. These visitors were apparently from (it said) Romania and Brazil and such. Perhaps the change takes a while to get around to all the global servers.
Be patient, I guess.
No. No patience. I'll throw myself on the floor and kick and scream first!
Seriously, I had this problem some time ago and posted a bunch of RSS feeds to locations in Sunforged's hub - I immediately got 8 or 10 hubs indexed withing 24 hours. Can't do it again though - the new stuff is already in those feeds. I may just have to wait and have (spitting and hissing) patience.

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...

If you get a backlink to a hubpage from another site, how long is it before google et al pick up on it?

I am not going to drag up the recent massive plagiarism activity again, but - as you know Maddie - I have found that quite a lot of my hubs have been de-indexed and my traffic here is dropping despite publishing new...

Wordpress submits each post to ping services like pingomatic. Should we be submitting our Hubs to these services or submit a ping each time we post a new Hub?

Hi, I am new to HubPages, but I've noticed some of my hubs are indexed on Google and some are not. One of the earliest ones I posted (over 4 days ago) has a little 'traffic falling' arrow next to it. I tried to search...
