It looks like HP may have found a way of "Blocking the Bot" during pending. For my latest hub that has been in the sin bin for 20 hours (pending) the bot tracker message says "Not recently crawled". This means the bot has no seen the "noindex" tag and gone on vacation for days or weeks. Anyone else seeing this? PS I noticed some extra pets have been added to the mysterious 'by-pass pending list"
Is there actually a list as I could not see one?
Loverly art work; just will someone answer my question- is there a list? I keep searching- never to find- just me on my lonely road to find information.
PSSST! Its supposed to be a scret!
Go to http://hubpages.com/hubs/latest/
anyone published less than 24 hours. (check back every now and then)
Yes I saw the new additions to those bypassing pending. Only a couple of folk, mind you.
On your main point, I usually see the 'not recently crawled message' until the minute the hub goes featured. Then I see a "last crawled 4 hours ago" message
hello janderson99, This is not a direct response to your query as I have not published anything lately.
I just thought you might be able to explain something, but I do know it will sound like an odd question, but here goes anyway. -
How come when I look on an unpublished hub in the search stats. on the hub it shows it was crawled by Google recently ? It says - Last crawl Google 2 days ago.
BTW It was not recently unpublished (as in it was not online 2 days ago) it is a hub that is waiting for me to decide about what to do with it.
Sorry no idea - I don't have unpublished hubs to check!
Anyone else seeing this?
I just noticed that upon tweaking some of my hubs (basically changing the Amazon capsule's position)
the Google adds have disappeared. I wonder if this has any relation?................
And we can see how well the 24 hour pending actually works here - http://piscesgamer.hubpages.com/hub/How … -frienship
This hub PASSED!
The Hub I published yesterday was crawled 27 hours ago, according to HP. That must have been right after it was published. The Hub I published today was crawled 3 hours ago, again immediately after it was published. This would be nice, if it was actually able to be indexed that quickly. But obviously neither of them are indexed yet. So, I see no change, and maybe it's even worse.
To be fair, I've had to add a couple of Hubs using Webmaster Tools, but usually G does find them relatively quickly on its own. I'm going to watch these two closely and see what happens to them.
Whoops! spoke too soon - I checked again and my sin bin one said

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks....

Right now, while a Hub is pending, it doesn't show ads, it has a "no follow" tag etc. However our followers get notified and they may share the Hub during that time. It would be nice if that...
