How To Find Your Hubpage Sitemap

Updated on August 5, 2013

After realizing that two hubs I published 3 days before Christmas were not indexed by Google after being active for 2 weeks I got a little worried. Normally my hubs are indexed one or two days after publication. I started checking around the Hubpages forum for answers and found none but more members in my same predicament.

During my investigation I ended up in Google Webmaster tools and found out that Webmaster tools reported that I did not submit a sitemap as yet. Therefore I went back to the Hubpages forum for answers as to how I could find my Hubpages sitemap only to come up short again.

So back into Webmaster tools I went, after some more research. After browsing through a few settings I glanced at my robots.txt file in the blocked urls section of Webmaster tools to find that the first link in the file was my sitemap url!

So I decided to make this hub to show all my fellow hubbers how to find their Hubpages sitemap.



The Hubpage Sitemap Url is:

http://hubpagename.hubpages.com/sitemaps/hub/current/sitemap-hub-hubpagename.xml.gz

hubpagename = is your hubpages account name. For example my account name would be easyguyevo

Which make my sitemap url:

http://easyguyevo.hubpages.com/sitemaps/hub/current/sitemap-hub-easyguyevo.xml.gz

Going to this link will download the sitemap to your computer or send you to a Google search result where the first link is the correct link to your sitemap. Or you can add this link to Webmaster tools sitemap section to submit a sitemap of your Hubpages account.

NB Your account has to contain 10 or more hubs for a sitemap to be generated!



What does this information mean to you?

See results

Note! I do not know if submitting a sitemap will guarantee your hubs to get indexed quicker than usual, since Hubpages does a pretty Good job of previewing new hubs.


Update One of my hubs was indexed the next day after submitting the sitemap to webmaster tools.

      This is interesting. I recently discovered absolutely none of my hubs are currently being indexed after previously ranking well. I have previously submitted a sitemap. However, now when I put that information into a Google search it also no longer yields any results. Google returns a result that there are no results for a search for my sitemap.

      But instead of leaving google to find it we can submit the sitemap to save indexing time (to get our website indexed quicker). Also webmaster tools allows you to update the sitemap whenever you want which might result in google crawling your website faster than normal if a change is detected. Eg more urls than the previous update

      The sitemap file exists and search engines will very likely know about it whether you submit it in the Webmaster Tools or not (they can discover it via the robots.txt file). Submitting it in the webmaster tools does allow you to see what Google sees of course, which can be interesting.
