Several of my newer Hubs are still not indexed by Google. One example is "The 1927 Bombing of Bath School-America's First School Massacre" and it was published on September 8th. Can you tell me why this is happening? Thanks.
No, but I'm having similar problems. Google crawled my site on the 5th September, however, they still have not indexed two new hubs which were written a few weeks before. Yet, they have indexed a hub which was published on the 9th September. Confused!
Google Crawling system is highly complicated and infact Google never provides a clear report or outlet of what it crawls. For instance if a website has 100 links in total the chances are Google will show just a few of them but it does crawls every link and in this case each and every page..
Note: Sharing on Social media sites like FACEBOOK, twitter, Google plus and on Social Book marking sites will help increase the rate of Google crawl.
I am not sure whether this helps or not but i tried to do so...
Thanks for the information. I can see on Google where someone shared my Hubs on Twitter but they are still not on Google itself with the URL and link back to HP. I am very confused and disappointed.
You stated "Several of my newer Hubs are still not indexed by Google."
Your example was this Hub:
http://hyphenbird.hubpages.com/hub/The- … re-in-1927
Are you doing a particular Google search and not seeing your Hub as a result?
If so, can you provide the exact URL for the Google search you are using?
Matthew, thank you so much. Yes, I have searched by name and by URL. The only thing showing is where they were shared on Twitter.
Here is one:
http://hyphenbird.hubpages.com/hub/-The … rder-Trial
and another is:
http://hyphenbird.hubpages.com/hub/The- … re-in-1927
I do appreciate your help and assistance. Both of these Hubs are several weeks old now and long out of Pending status on HubPages. Thank you again.
It appears that Google recently made some algorithm changes and although we are providing the data from your Hub to Google, it appears they have chosen not to crawl the provided data.
Is this something that's been happening regularly with HubPage article since the update?
I don't know but it is not a good thing. I could understand them (more) doing this with creative writing or poetry but my Hubs are historical facts. Odd to say the least.
Matthew, thanks for getting back to me on this matter. How strange. It is great and historical information. Thank you for looking into it for me.
My theory is that the new hubs were discovered by Google right away, including their 24-hour noindex tags... My guess is that because of the noindex tags, Google won't be back to those hubs for quite sometime. If it was me, I'd proceed to WMT.
I've tried that but it keeps asking me to verify the site. It tells me to upload a file to HP, but not how I upload
This is what I do as soon as the status changes on the newly published hub...pop into Google Webmaster Tools and submit the pages myself manually without waiting for a return from Google after Google has viewed the noindex tag.
Thanks Paradigm and Dale. I have never done that but can surely figure it out. Even having to do that is time that we could be producing more pieces but I suppose we do what we must. I appreciate the help.
I figured it out. Yeah. Now that I know what I am doing, I see it will only take a few minutes. Thank you guys (blowing a kiss of gratitude)!
Something is still strange with my latest hub, I Fetch it through Google, I see it indexed, the next day, GONE! De-indexed?
This is really odd, perhaps worth mentioning to HP by email.
I have experienced similar wonkiness concerning indexing with some of my articles published over the last few days. However, I checked some of the articles while pending as I was curious about the placement of the noindex tags, but didn't see any even before the articles were "Featured".
I've just used the fetch as Google in WMT and WMT is saying URL's not found.
I also had that difficulty, I kept trying, eventually it worked. This has happened to me three times now.
Was it with the same hubs that G deindexes 24 hours later, RB.?
Yeah, the only difficulty I have ever had with Google is with my Latest hub, I published 8/29.
What REALLY sucks! I get traffic from Google while it is indexed! In my experience, this hub should bring me 50- 100 views a day! It is an integral part of a series I had planned, already published about half of the hubs!.
My latest hub was indexed almost immediately after pending mode, yet my two prior hubs still are not indexed. One of them was published a month ago, which is a bit sickening because by now it should have beeen receiving (hopefully) some nice organic hits.
I try to add to my portfolio, hubs that I can then go back and link to from my previous hubs. I attempt to make them all relative with a nice web of links. NOW, I am afraid to go back in to previous hubs and link to this dubious publication. I am not going to do anything which would alter my current hubs status'.
So, my work here has ended abruptly, I am hoping there will be a resolution soon. I have at least twenty more hubs I would like to publish, many already exist in draft. I moved one unrelated draft to Wizzley yesterday.
just a fyi: in my over two years at HP, I have never had a reason to criticize the site, UNTIL NOW!
I agree that it's really frustrating. I have considered posting those two hubs that I've written on Wizzley, but like yours they are one of a group belonging with other hubs which are indexed and doing fairly well. It's like being stuck between a rock and a hard place.
A small niche on Hubpages does very well in my experience. This is a great site, I just hope the bugs in the new system can get fixed soon. There really is some traffic and income to get here, it is just frustrating when dealing with roadblocks.
edit: post moved
Yes, sometimes I don't know what day it is or who I am anymore.
I know what you mean. Some days I wonder what has happened. Our hubs used to get indexed quickly. I searched Google, and there are a bunch of reasons, one of which is page rank. I know that HubPages has a good PR. I asked the question in Q and A, and one person replied that it normally takes 30 days. I am confused and appreciate the question.
Reality Bites, I feel the same way. I have loved HubPages since the moment I found it. I do believe this new Idle Hub thing is a wrong move though and find it hard to support. I may go check out Wizzley.
I am an optimist, I am still working on hubs, just not going to publish them. I am not ready to completely give up here, I have faith in the staff that they will resolve this issue and allow us to continue to earn, for everyone!
He that can have patience can have what he will.
Thanks to everyone for the replies and ideas. I have been intentional about writing more nonfiction Hubs and now this is an issue. I am struggling not to be discouraged. I have four more Hubs that I am working on but hesitate to publish them until this issue is resolved.
Yeah, I have to say, I'm not really opposed to idle Hubs but I'm a little bit uncomfortable with the waiting period, especially for established authors. I've been here for almost four years at the end of this month, maybe trust I'm not going to push out 350 words to promote a MLM scheme?
It has now been 12 days and the Hub is still not indexed. Another is 8 days old and MIA. It is really frustrating and confusing especially when I have purposely left off creative writing to focus on true accounts, etc.
Has anyone else seen their Hubs show up on Google yet since this thread began?
Since I don't see it mentioned in the thread Paul E posted in the Idle Hubs thread that any edits done while in pending mode will cause further delay - apparently they would have to be moderated all over again. I put one out the day before IH went official. G picked it up immediately but de-indexed it a few days later while it was pending. The hub was approved after 4 or 5 days and was picked up G right away with good placement. Same with HP. But, can we nail down any consistences with whats going on between us all? Hyph, 12 days mien gott! Did you edit any while in pending mode? Might be a start, whither you did or didn't.
I'd like to link one of Brendas new story on to one of mine but all that comes up is no suggestions found. That happens on about half of them. Anyone got an idea whats up with that! Anyone know how to rectify the that? Or at least know whats going on with it?
No, I didn't edit them and these are good Hub. One is the bombing of the bath school, one is the murder in NY. It is not like they are even poetry.
Are they still in pending, Hyph?
No, they have the Featured symbol. I even copied the title and put my user name after it. Still nothing on Google. Bing has them though.
Is it out of pending now, Hyph it's showing on new hubs now and should be picked up by G soon.
They have been out of pending for days now but still nothing from Google. There is a glitch somewhere and it is a big one. I do trust HP to fix it but this needs emergency action-kind of like appendicitis. laugh
Saw somewhere last week that G may not be crawling our sub-domains as frequently as heretofore. Don't know if this is correct info or not. Sure hope it isn't.
I haven't wrote any hubs lately so don't know if they will index. Something strange does seem to be going on. I have hubs suddenly yesterday dropped to the bottom and have never been there. It's indexed but on third page of Google. So far I haven't found any of my hubs that are not indexed somewhere but I am worried about doing another hub.
So am I moonlake. I have another Hub readyto publish but hesitate because it will not help me if it is not seen outside of HP.

I now have 11 hubs that are not indexed by google - nothing published since July 12 (the last one was published on the 9th and indexed yesterday). Normally I've seen then set up with 24 hours, occasionally in 48, but now it's 8 days and not done!!??

I am not going to drag up the recent massive plagiarism activity again, but - as you know Maddie - I have found that quite a lot of my hubs have been de-indexed and my traffic here is dropping despite publishing new work and despite actively promoting myself outside of hubpages. I realize that it...

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...
