Been searching my hub titles on Google to see how they are ranking. I decided to search for the link to one with the "http://link" What I found were all backlinks to my hub but nothing pointing directly at my hub save for one comment.
What puzzles me is that the comment a person made ranks, but my hub is non existent as far as Google is concerned. I am not sure if what I concluded is right. If anyone knows anything please reply.
I posted a reply similar to this in another thread, but a short recap...
I have seen some strange Google serps also.
A couple hubs I searched for were returned in the serps - but under my profile link instead of the hub link. stranger still - the returned serp description was the hub's title and summary, but the clickable search link was to my profile - not the hub.
hmmm.... something doesn't seem right.
I think something may be wrong with Google's scripting of their bots since Panda. But I may be wrong about that also.
I'm no expert here but my guess would be that the Google bots have just crawled the article directories and just not Hub Pages yet for you. Be patient and keep checking, it will eventually find your Hub. Just the fact you have a backlink in an article directory goes a long way with Google.
Still...I can see why you're annoyed!
I do know if you have created a new blog, site, etc that link will not work if Google has not indexed it yet.
It is not a new blog. It is a hub that was published on Dec. 15, 2008. it has always been one of my top hubs and still is in fact in the top 5 at this time.
EDIT: It just fell out of the top 5 but still getting traffic (more than most of my hubs). At this time it ranks number 3 as far as traffic.

It is important to actually read the hub you are commenting on. It seems that every time I publish a hub I get at least one comment saying something that proves they didn't read the hub. In the future I will be deleting...

If a visitor to any given hub makes a comment I believe that's a good thing. But what if that visitor leaves a link, usually embedded into their name, to another website or another hub. Thsi has happened a lot and...
