I used the site:markewbie.hubpages.com search in Google to see which of my hubs have been indexed.
Then I checked some of those hubs keywords in a separate Google search.
Hubs that had largely disappeared from view after Panda now seem to be showing in the first page.
I hope this isn't a temporary state of affairs, 'new' content being indexed highly. Or Google now knowing I'm a Hubber and therefore showing me what I want to see, rather than what other people see.
Looks good to me.
Are you being sarcastic? Am I over sensitive? Whichever - I am just sharing my limited knowledge in the hope it may be useful. And to share others experiences as well.
I have got to try and look at my site- you technically minded people sure lead the way!
I'd not bothered ... I vaguely remember something about a sub-domain and vaguely remember thinking "I'll not bother". I hate decisions as I'm a "bird in the hand" type of person and would be fearful of things going downwards.
Hi earner, you will moved onto a sub domain at the end of the month anyway - everyone is moving. You have the option now to go to your account and set the move in motion immediately, or wait. I moved immediately because it couldn't be any worse.
I tried that search. Only one hub has been indexed, and it does not show up anywhere significant in search results. Guess this change is not going to help me
I did the subdomain thing yesterday (there is probably a more technical term than 'subdomain thing' but I can't think of it.)
I've just done the site: search thingy and it looks like most of my hubs are indexed (thanks for the how to on that Mark - I didn't know it could be done).
Views are definately up, in fact as it's Friday and my views are normally jumping of a cliff by now, they are looking very healthy ~ so the subdomain thing gets a big thumbs up from me.
Hey, Mark, thanks for starting this thread. I just checked and there I am! Along with links to other sites that promote my hubs
I did a keyword search on several hubs - some fairly common terms, not just the hub titles - most of the hubs popped up on the first page of Google results YAY YAY YAY (not quite turning handsprings but feeling hopeful)
...and the hubs that showed up were a mix of older and a few new, so who knows

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks....
