I have 2 hubs that are not showing up as indexed when I search the url but in the stats on both hubs it shows that they have been crawled by Google and Bing - one of them was crawled 35 hours ago by Google. I've cleared my cache and and checked on a different computer, and it's definitely not showing up. This hub is over 3 weeks old, and it's a bit frustrating that it isn't indexed. (I have tried to manually index through Webmaster tools.)
Does anyone know how long it takes after the search engines crawl a page before it gets indexed? In other words, should it have indexed after 35 hours, or should I be patient because this means it is almost there?
I did a text string of your latest hub. Not only is it indexed, its picture even came up. How'd you do that? I'd love for my hub pics to show up like that.
paradigmsearch, thanks for doing that.
Bizarrely it's not my latest hub that hasn't indexed. It's the one on why airlines don't allow cellphones and a different recipe one.
The reason the photo shows up with that particular hub you searched is because it's a recipe. Using the recipe capsule does that somehow. (By magic I think! )
However, you can get your profile picture to show up in results if you claim Google authorship. Glenn Stok wrote a hub about this, so follow his directions. (I did it but couldn't remember enough to tell you how.)
Melovy, it took mine about thirty days even though I pinged it. It will get better, I hope.
Brakel2, thanks. 30 days is a lot. I've heard of pinging but don't know what it is. Would you mind explaining?
Pingfarm .com is one site. You enter the URL , and someone said to ping your profile too. It shows that you have something new or updated, Melovy.
WHERE was it indexed? Your profile says you live in Scotland - is there a Scottish Google or just the UK one? Either way, it may be indexed on the US Google but not the UK one.
To force Google to go to the US search engine, use http://google.com/ncr
There is a Scottish Google I believe. It split from Google .co.uk after a one question referendum in 2010. Most popular search terms include, "Whaur's the cludgie?" (where's the toilet) and "Goad a'michty! Ma dampt hoovercraft's breemin' ower wi bluiddy eyls!" (my hovercraft is full of eels)

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...

I have had a real drop in views over the past few weeks, and as others have too, I just presumed it was Google panda or the usual drop we often get. But I decided to check in google search, and something strange has happened. I can't find many of my hubs. I have only checked a few so far but they...

I'm a little confused as to why some of my hubs have been getting a good ranking in google right away and some can't even be found in google at all.I created a hub two days ago and it is showing up first in the google rankings for a decent search term. A hub I created three days that I thought...

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!!??

Why are shared hubs not showing up in our feed?Has something changed about sharing hubs, as I don't see the hubs I've shared of others on my feed? Thank you for answering.
