I have 12 hubs being indexed by Google just fine. However, none of my hubs come up in yahoo when I put the hub title in the yahoo search box. Any idea why and what I need to do to get yahoo to reognize the hubs?
Weird - I bookmarked the hubs thru several sites- reddit, digg,my own blog, and these are showing in Bing and Yahoo to different degrees, but I don't see any hubpages being directly indexed in either Bing or Yahoo.
The hubs were published all thru January starting with January 4th. I can't see it taking 4 weeks to index a hub.
You could try a free ping service, there are several online. That will alert the search engines to your hubs' existence.
