I am new to hup pages and posted few articls in my hub. I need help regarding how to index hub pages in google.
I need advice from senior mambers who are having experience in this regard.
Thanks in Advance.
Naresha, welcome to Hubpages, you really have to do nothing, just wait and it gets indexed by Google. If you really want it in a hurry ping it, that will do the trick.
Darn it... I am no bro.. I guess i shouldn't have answered this query
You are right Sofs and I am no "pro" either, neither am I a "bro"....lol. I am just teasing you.
But really, Google starts crawling your hubs as soon as you start creating them so within 24 hours they will be indexed and you can prove it by searching for your hub between 2 and 6 hours and see what happens.
Cardisa, I did not realize that he wanted only pro's and bro's to answer the query at first... LOL
I think for initially it does take 24+ hours to get some hubs indexed... no predicting the Google bots.. people have reported that it has taken upto 48hours to have hubs indexed..
I am no pro or bro... just saying .. Thanks for the laughs Cardisa
Some people have reported their hubs in a few hours. I think it depends on the keywords and phrases that are used....I think..
True... some of my hubs have been indexed within hours...that is why I said Initially... as a new hubber I did see that it took much time... but then I wasn't the key words expert then... not that I am now..LOL
Thanks for your post. Still I am having Q. How can I test it?
Just past the link of your hub into google and see if your hub pops up
@Naresha, as Sofs mentioned, sometimes new hubbers hubs take longer to index because their domains are new. As your domain gets older the hubs are indexed quicker.
Past the URL into google and search for it.
If it doesn't come up it isn't indexed. If it does come up, look at the blowup provided by google; if it says "cached" it is indexed. If it doesn't, google has found it, but has not actually indexed it yet - at this point you can reasonably expect it to be indexed within a few hours.
I have not had good luck getting my hubs indexed, and have had a couple that took weeks. Pinging didn't help, either. I now use the google WMT to fetch the hub and request that it be indexed - nearly everything is indexed within 24 hours as a result.

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here...

Hi, I am new to HubPages, but I've noticed some of my hubs are indexed on Google and some are not. One of the earliest ones I posted (over 4 days ago) has a little 'traffic falling' arrow next to it. I tried to search...

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....
