What is the average time it takes for a hub to get indexed? I noticed that sometimes it only takes 12-24 hours, but one of my hubs seems to have not been indexed and it has been above that time.
Do longer hubs take longer to get indexed?
I have seen a couple of threads on the same subject maybe looking them up would help.
My last hub took 3 days to get indexed. It's word count was 680.
All depends on how easy it is to find it by the search engine spiders. If you want it indexed always within 24 hours then you should ping your hub url. You can do this by sites such as pingomatic.com
Amazingly enough, considering how bad my traffic has been from the big G after the subdomain switch, all of my Hubs of recent memory have been indexed within 24.
Of some interest to note though, some articles I have written on other sites have really taken a long time to get indexed lately. In particular, I have three recent articles going on 3-6 weeks without being indexed despite pinging and going through the traditional measures to tell G I have a new page!
On a final note, I've found that posts from established Blogger sites are indexed almost immediately.
What a surprise. One hub took at least 48 hours to get indexed, but I check and see it's almost at 1000 views in 24 hours. Sweet!
I'm going to start pinging more often. I used to abide by it a lot, but now it seems to be more important for me considering my SEO methods.
I've noticed that since I've been slapped hubs take a lot longer to index, up to two weeks.
On my new subdomain, my more recent offerings are indexing within hours if not minutes.
On my new Blogger blogs, they are not only indexing as soon as I publish, but I am getting sent organic traffic right away.
I'm still the same person. I still write the same.

It gets to be a bit much listening to the "quality content" lecture in terms of "quality content" being the end all cure when it comes to the disastrously low traffic levels for us subdomain plungers.
I'll be the first to admit that there's a ton of writers who write much better than I do. Page for page, they're going to "organically" generate a much bigger following and substantially more traffic.
I'm happy for them! They're already achieving what I'm always working towards. They should be rewarded for having a talent that enables them to offer extremely useful or captivating content. Despite our best efforts and putting our best foot forward, we're not all going to be able to run a five minute mile!
That being said, why does my best effort, even if everyone considers it to be junk, translate into over 20,000 page views, for 31 lenses (3 of which aren't even indexed by Google) over at Squidoo, while 92 Hubs only translate into a little over 2,700 page views over the past month here at HubPages?
I think we can all agree, this difference in traffic levels is staggering to put it mildly!!!
In short, it's very clear, even from my inexperienced corner of the world, that there's much bigger things going on, that nobody seems to have an explanation for, that goes far beyond how good or bad we write!
When you say 2700 page views, are you referring to 24 hour stats or HP ad program impressions?
Google not big on re-indexing...?
I just came across a bub of mine that hasn't been revisited by google since September 8th; so says the cache.
Can anyone top that with an even older date?
Just checked a random one of mine - 27th of August.
A random pair came in at Sept. 2 and Oct. 19.
Can it be that G keeps the same cache date if there have been no changes?

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....
