Pages missing from Google Search listings

    It seems that none of my pages are appearing in the Google Search listings.

    I tried to submit a request via their support section, but just don't know how to do it.

    Can someone suggest what I should do here?

    How did you check?

    Almost all of my hubs were on the first three pages of Google search listings and now they are not. I have even tried with quotes and none of these come up in the search listing.

      I checked if the URL's are listed

    OK, the URL does seem to be listed.

    But how come when I search for the title along with my name, it does not appear in the search listings.

    Am I being penalized or something?

    Yes, it seems you are.  But it is not an "error"--it is something Google has chosen to do.

    Thanks, psycheskinner.

    So, what should I do here?

    I also just did a search on Bing. It seems the same thing is happening there.

    How come both the sites are doing the same thing and that too at one go?

    Google recent changed their search algorithm and a lot of hubbers lost pagerank rather dramatically.  What to do about it is anyone's guess.

    These is a screenshot from a Bing search that I did for one of my articles. The topmost link takes you to a list of articles and not to the article itself.

    It seems like more to do with Hubpages tweaking something rather than the search engines to me.

    Surprisingly, another one of my articles (not the one I searched for) is listed on the page.

    Again, it seems like Hubpages and not search engines.

    I think you are incorrect. The same thing is happening to a lot of people and they have clearly determined it is about the search engines.  So I doubt the same thing happening to you has a completely different cause.  See the Hubpages blog for details.

    Ok, thanks, psycheskinner.

    Maybe it is. Just wasn't sure what was going on, that's all.

    Well, here is hoping that the search engines do something that gets us all back on track.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction though.
