I've noticed 2 things - my last hub pubished over a week ago finally got indexed it wasn't yesterday -that may or may not have coincidence - though I was shocked that the hub hadn't indexed given it was on a topic of a week thread and had had lots of comments.
Now with the new subdomain I checked how many of my hub were indexed - unfortunately i hadn't checked this recently as usually its been 100% - when I typed in site:lissie.hubpages.com
I got only 30 hubs indexed out of 138 published!
For me basically the cut-off is 85 /84 - hubs less than that are not indexed.
What are others seeing - oh and lets talk about quality some of my de-indexed hubs include those that I was paid by hubpages to write!
There is a 301 redirect in place so they should be picked up again pretty quickly. I am holding off changing to a sub domain until the last minute though, I forsee yet another drop in earnings when I do this.
Given that we only moved to subdomains in the last 24 hours - I'd give it until the end of the month to see what happens. Are people noticing a correlation between hubscore and indexing - basically every hub I have with a score of over 85 is indexed
I'm at 21 percent total on all profiles. This is the first day in at least a year that I haven't made any money in Adsense from my Hubs. I have one Hub that delivers consistently daily and today..nothing. sniffle sniffle...it hurts, it really hurts. Fingers crossed for tomorrow.
This is correct. 301 tells Google "this is a permanent redirect, please count it as the same" and Google says "well maybe". The rumor is they don't hold equal weight anymore because too many people were finding ways to game the system using 301's. That's just rumor, though.
The original articles remain indexed Do a search for your full title and you will see them, and they are redirected to your subdomain. Not sure what happens when Google indexes the new urls. For one I looked at, the old form was replaced - though the links still point to the old form. Page rank is gone but should come back and may not have disappeared from the actual ranking - just from the toolbar. Will probably take a few days.
They should. So far I only have one newly indexed hub that I paid attention to and the new URL is in the same spot (searching for keywords) that it was before the change. Hopefully it will remain there or rise.
As that particular hub bounces 2 or 3 spots (although always on the first page) I had thought it might fall some, but it hasn't.
Presumably Google is smart enough to put 2 and 2 together and figure out that it is the same hub and should be in the same place.
I am hoping for good things, but...I am holding off still on new hubs until I see what will happen. All of my new (to be) sports hubs are in limbo until I see if they can perform here or not anymore. But, I can't wait much longer.
I have about 10% of my hubs indexed under the new subdomain. Probably takes a few days for them to all switch over to the new domain. I am still getting the same amount of traffic so I would believe the rest are still indexed under the old domain.
About 50% of mine are indexed under the new subdomain. I have wondered whether my username beginning with "A" could possibly contribute to that. Or perhaps the fact that I have comparatively few Hubs to start with?
Looks like I have 9 out of 177. I am still getting good traffic and earnings are really good (at least compared to the last few months lol). I assume my other hubs are still indexed under the old links and this is why my traffic is the same. Obviously if I had only nine indexed I wouldn't be getting the same amount of traffic!
I know this is the thread about indexing or de-indexing, but what I have noticed is interesting.
I've only ever had one decent hub that consistently gets high traffic and sits high on Google.
Late last night I noticed that another hub I wrote around the same subject is sitting higher than the first hub in the SERPS.
The second hub has the new subdomain. Looking through the eyes of Market Samurai it has no domain age, nor backlinks nor backlinks from the site, and its number of pages with the domain indexed within Google is in single figures, yet it is riding high.
This morning it's traffic is in 3 figures for the first time ever.
Just thought I'd share. Looks like we will all of tales of something similar.
Meanwhile the first hub normally has a dip in traffic at this time of the week, starting yesterday, but if anything it's traffic is going up.
I wondered if it hadn't indexed the really rubbish stuff. But then it's all rubbish. I also wonder if once it has indexed it, it will then Panda slap it once it realises what a mishmash of garbage it is. And finally, even if it does index it and treat it kindly, I still haven't mastered writing stuff people are searching for.
Apart from that, I'm crossing my fingers and glued to my stats.
Two indexed out of 20. A small increase in visits over a 12-hour period and now back to nothing.
I spend at least 4-5 hours on most hubs I write, even several days on a couple. A lot of them include extensive research, bringing together diverse information, re-presenting complex scientific language into something simpler.
I've looked at hubs of some people who crow about earning a lot here. In one case, I've found some real rubbish: poorly written with respect to grammar and style and providing little or no real information.
If Google regards my hubs as low quality compared to that, then I give up.
I haven't looked to see how many hubs are indexed under the new subdomain because it doesn't really matter with the 301 directs in place. If your hubs are not indexed under your new subdomain, they will still be indexed at the previous url (as long as they were indexed in the first place). It will just take google a little bit of time to update their database of where the new page is located and start listing that page in the results instead of the old one.
Does it not matter for serps listing, Susana? Those of mine that are de-indexed and not yet indexed have disappeared from the serps and have thus lost their viewers. Judging by the results so far, I expect them to come back and maybe even at a higher position than before; it's just a waiting game now.
As far as I'm aware, pages are only de-indexed when they can't be found (in this kind of situation). With the 301 in place the page can still be found. So as soon as the google bot comes through the redirect it should deindex the old page and replace it with the new url.
So what I'm trying to say is that the old url will be in the serps until google crawls a link pointing to the page and finds the redirect, and only at that point will it change the url that is in its database. It should be pretty seamless.
I switched to the new subdomain yesterday afternoon. Just to make sure I'm clear, if the word "cached" is next to the hub in the search, then it's indexed, right? If that's the case then 48 of my 51 are indexed. That's good, right?
I read this on a google forum about google following redirects, from a google employee.
We use caching to help reduce the load of crawling all content, and sometimes we just want to confirm that the redirect is still there. Because of that, it can happen that we crawl the redirecting URL, see the redirect, and then use the last cached version of the final URL for the rest of the processing. As long as we're still regularly crawling the final URLs, and they're still being indexed appropriately, then things should be ok
I'm assuming when he says, final URL, he's referring to the final URL before the address change? I checked a few of mine not indexed with the new URL and they were cached a day or two before the 13th/July.
I have had a real drop in views over the past few weeks, and as others have too, I just presumed it was Google panda or the usual drop we often get. But I decided to check in google search, and something strange has...
Just checked yesterday's traffic, and it was horrible. My Monday traffic hasn't been this low since August 2011. I don't get it. It seems the more long, informative, media-rich hubs I write, the less traffic I get.
I can see some of my new hubs in Google when I search for "hub name".But in Webmaster Tools, I submitted a sitemap and it says 38 URLs submitted and 10 indexed.I used Fetch as Google for a few new hubs and...
I am new to hubpages(joined 6 days back). I made few hubs(so far 3) and asked few questions, posted some comments too.Next day i created my account, my profile page has been indexed in google. Plus my first hub also...
