Problem with Google Indexing

    My latest two or three hubs has faced a very peculiar situation. They did not got indexed to Google even after two or three days. Only manual submission solved the problem. Is it for the recent changes in Hubpages? I have not faced such problems before (never had to wait more than 12 hours).

    I am having the same issue except even manually submitting the hub has no effect.  My issue is not just Google, I am unable to find my latest hub on Hubpages.  Searching the exact title within the site shows that the hub is being practically ignored.  It is turning out to be a vast waste of time attempting to post any new hubs until this is somehow rectified!

    Yes, pina, looks like everyone is being effected -internally and externally for indexing.
    Hubs untouched by the zZz are still doing well for me. The newest one is in Limbo somewhere.
    I gave up after almost four days and will be un-publishing hubs to make changes, versus zZz indexing.

      Having the motivation to produce but lacking confidence in the new system, I have chosen to resume my work, at Wizzley!  At least until I can get my own domain up and running!

        Is Wizzley performing well for you ? I mean do articles get notable Google traffic from Wizzley ?

          Still working on my first article.  Just signed up this morning when my patience finally reached its end waiting for an index of my latest hub!

      It is very frustrating - the Google is the main source of our traffic.

        Which is essentially problematic at its root. One major source supplying inbound energy is not only dangerous, but monopolized. True, engines Bing & Yahoo are much stricter on what content goes in-out, which makes them more of a premium energy supplier versus very crude or somewhat filtered energy. The Goo has added many detergents to its fuel recently in hopes of making the vehicles cleaner and more efficient, responsive. Regardless, the engine itself is clunky, which cannot be fixed by new cleaners or bi-fuels. It needs re-manufacturing or refurbishing.

        I have since left the Google loop for direct payment for publishing and extended reach to several other engines, like "Duck, duck, Go!" as well as, Social Media outlets, where traffic comes directly to the article itself, bypassing the engine entirely. Every White Hatter have talked to recommends bypassing engines until 2013 and using direct links or social Media until the Bing Social Engine is fully debugged.

        Some might not be aware, but Goo Search is not longer their top priority. Ads, Software, Mobile and product scraping are.

          But the problem is despite your "Goo" you can not get enough traffic to survive .

            True, using Goo[gle]. I have relative, responsive traffic from other sources beyond them.
            The major issue is a traffic to Doubleclick [AdSense] ratios on sites that are bound to Google or even linked to any of their products.

            I recently tore down a site built for Food Publications, in order to rebuilt. Was a non-Google based system.
            No AdSense, no Analytic/Tracking, etc. It outperformed two of my competitors in traffic -unique real visitors, keywords, referrals and revenue. We are going to rebuild it shortly on an HTML5 platform for mobile publishing with live micro-blogging {like twitter @ 255 char} and instant photo views {like Instagram}. Will work on iPad, Tablets even SER if all goes well.

            There are enough outlets today to bypass any search engine.
            Many do not even know they exist and are high performance solutions.
            Keyword wresting/wrangling is so 5 years ago and will be replaced with Social Folksonomy very soon.
            Digital Publishers should begin moving in that direction, IMO.

    I published a hub 36 hours ago, it is now appearing in Google search.  So that's 24 hours for Hubpages to do their thing then it was indexed in less than 12 hours by Google.  So this issue is not site wide it seems.

      I think this 24 hours waiting time is messing with the G crawler and that why many hubs are not indexed even after 48 hours.

        Has anyone heard any updates from Hubpages?

            Any new information on the issues that we are having with this latest change.  I find the lack of attention from Hubpages quite disturbing!

            With an average of 2700 hits a day for the past 30 days,  I would appreciate some sort of explanation!

      Same here...  it's not happening to all hubs.  But, I'm sorry for those of you experiencing the delay.

        I think something is going on in the HQ. Can anybody tell us the truth?

    My hub is indexed in Bing and Yahoo and gets a little traffic from both but it is nowhere in Google. It is frustrating. I think the HP should stop messing with Google. I know they are trying to find out the ways to be in the good grace of Google and that is why the problem.

      Same here. One of my newest hubs has been indexed by Bing and Yahoo, but not Google. Weird.

        My two latest hubs are not indexed yet. Another one I have forced to index by manual submission but it does not getting any G traffic. It is irritating.
