Is it true that once a Hub gets a NO INDEX tag, due to being unFeatured, Google blacklists the link?


I've heard some Hubbers mention that once a Hub gets a NO INDEX tag, due to being unFeatured by HubPages, that geting the NO INDEX tag removed is not enough to get back in good with Google. Once a link gets a NO INDEX tag, Google puts it on a black list and continues to ignore it, even after the NO INDEX tag is removed by HubPages (after changes are made to the Hub). Is this true or just a misunderstanding of how Google operates?

    Thanks for the confirmation that even with NOINDEX removed, your Hubs are penalized for a time by Google. I wonder if usng the Fetch feature in Google Webmaster tools will force the googlebot to reindex the hubs that have lost the NOINDEX tag?

    Thanks for the response, but it would be nice to hear such a statement from people high up at HubPages. If it is true that Hubs that get the NO INDEX tag are damaged in Google, then that would be really bad. Hope this isn't the case.

    The round tag with an 'H' in it that is listed beside the title of your hub under your 'Hub Statistics' page.
