    Hi everyone,
    I just published my Hub today but I can't find it in any search engine including hub search, did I do something wrong or does it take time to get into search?
    Thanks,
    Elizabeth

      Hi Elizabeth, how did you find your link to your hub? I thought I had it and went to send it to my friend and the one I was sending led right into my account and the editing part and everything, how do I just find the link to send out?

    It can take anywhere from a few minutes to 48 hours for a hub to get indexed.

    I'd recommend that you put it in the Extreme Hub Makeover forum to get some feedback - it's quite long and the pictures may stop people scrolling down. There are a few other things you could change as well, although it's a very good start. smile

    Any page, even on a powerful site like HubPages, is going to take a little while to index, especially in the search engines. I'd say if it's longer than 48 hours, then contact the HubPages administers, because any article should be indexed by then.

      The admin having nothing to do with it! Not all pages get indexed. There are billions of pages on the internet and only a small percent are indexed by Google. Pages that are extremely low quality or are in very saturated topics may not be indexed. Pages can also be indexed and then de-indexed depending on traffic and content.

      Hubpages has no influence over that - they just provide a platform to write, not a promise that it will be read.

      If a hub hasn't been indexed after a few days you can easily ping or tweet it (with hash tags) and it will get indexed pretty fast.

          Did you link your Adsense account here? https://hubpages.com/my/earnings/affiliate/

          If not, the adverts that are showing give 100% of earnings to Hubpages.

    yes I finally did that, I didnt do ebay cause it says that you have to have an ebay account and i dont have one yet. Dont know if I want one yet so am holding off on that.

      You can't get an eBay account without your own website.

      However you can easily get Amazon and I'd recommend using the HP ad program too.

    Hi Delaney,

    I had to wait 24 hours after I published my page but then found it listed automatically also I typed in some keywords into search and it came up.If you want to send people your link to your page you can also preview your page and right click on the address bar , copy it then send it.
