What's the current situation between Google and Hubpages?


I lost virtually all of what little Google traffic I had on 29 September, and it isn't coming back. I just did a little experiment, searching for one hub which had been on page 1 of Google - couldn't find it at all now - after looking through 20 pages I gave up! Tried the actual titles of three others - links I'd put on Redgage and Xomba showed up on page 1 but the actual articles on Hubpages didn't show up in Google results at all. Why should that be? What is going on?

    Thanks, Dave. I didn't know about not allowing the hub to be crawled for more than ads. What does that mean? I like Hubpages so it's a shame this is happening.

    That's a very interesting article, especially the statistics, but while it tells me what is happening, it isn't telling me why. Has Google sent Hubpages to Coventry? If so, what's the point of keeping on hubbing?
