My latest Hub is about my experiences as a new user at both RedGage and Bubblews. I have tried putting both names in the HubPages search bar and the Hub doesn't show in the results even though the Hub has already been featured for about 24 hours. What have I done wrong and how do I correct it?

Thanks for your trouble. That's very comforting because the Google traffic is what should bring in money. Assuming people are actually interesting in those sites, that is!
It's no trouble at all everyone here is always willing to help. You can also see when you Google Redgage verses Bubblews that HP has your hub listed also at the bottom of the page so that helps (1st pg).
Good Luck and have a Merry Christmas
Until now I hadn't even tried a Google search. It doesn't even come up in the HubPages searches though it does appear on the category page.
It is listed there as well as on my profile page and in the category HubPages Tutorials and Community → Getting Traffic for Your Hubs → Social Bookmarking Sites and HubPages. It's also getting some views, but no tags show up in searches.
There is a lag between when the 'inside' recognition and those things opening it to the whole internet. I'd have thought it would be fully cleared but may be some hold up. Look for it on STATISTICS as I described. You'll see if there are problems
It's not just the internet. It's not showing on HubPages' own search. And I really can't see any problems under the statistics.
Maybe you could notify those people who want to see it how to go straight to your profile page & click it up there? We know it shows up there. Roundabout, but is a solution now. It's odd! My only delays in 3 yrs are the 1st lags before a hub cl
Notifying people could only be a short term solution, but this isn't really a Hub for sharing with my friends. I doubt any of them would have any use for either of the sites I wrote about.
I wasn't thinking of just friends. You'd mentioned people who would view it for impersonal reasons, but apparently they're too impersonal to follow a link; so that's no solution. Hope it gets resolved satisfactorily. I've run out of suggestions.
Thanks for trying. It seems you're not the only one who's run out of ideas. I'll try the search again tomorrow and see if editing it somehow made a difference.
Sometimes wise to just accept & move on. Life's too short to spin one's wheels on futility, once you've given it a good try. Might try copying it all offline & then redoing the hub with a slightly different title & save the one that wor
Thanks. I've tried that. How soon should I see a result?
That's not my problem. I can find it. It's people who are searching for the sites I'm reviewing that won't be able to find it.
