I just ran all of my Hubs through a checker to see how many pages were indexed in Google, I found that none of my 16 Hubs were! Many of them have a respectable Hubscore and as you will see I'm not a spammer or user of duplicate content.

My hub about landscaping4home is still not indexed by any of the search engines. Usually I get at least indexed at one of the three. It's been over a week now. My other Hubs got indexed really fast (within two days).Do...

I would like to make a suggestion to the TEAM here on HUB Pages. I feel that it would be a positive improvement here on the HUB, if all of the activity that is perpetuated by Hubbers, were made known.For...
