I posted a new hub on family magazines. It is not pending, but it's not featured either. So I think that means it's not being indexed. I looked at the hub and there are no warnings or notifications, either at the top of the hub or in my email. Could you please confirm what's happening?
Not indexed, what use to be called sleeping hub when HP used the ZZZZ. Just open it up, hit the edit button, make a change of a word or 2, then republish it. It will go into the pending bit.
It sounds like it didn't get "featured" after the pending process. I had that happen a few days ago on my second account - no notification, as you say. I removed an Amazon capsule (I thought there might be one too many) and resubmitted, it's now featured.
Thank you. I received an email from the team that said I should do just that. However, as the whole point of the hub is describing magazine subscriptions, I'd think that a description about each one would be appropriate in the Amazon capsule.
Could you improve the text:Amazon ratio by adding to your descriptions rather than by reducing your Amazon capsules? There's not always a great deal to say though, I know ...
I was thinking about taking the magazine descriptions out of the capsule and putting them in the text. I rebel at that, because it's busy work, when the result will be giving the same information. But I'll probably do it. Thanks, Judi Bee.

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. New pages do not get indexed for days or weeks. This causes lost traffic and lost...

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...

Some people have asked why do some Hubs go directly to featured. We are working on ways to get more Hubs featured as quickly as we can and are testing mechanisms for doing it. Right now, there are a small number of Hubbers where our system can process their Hubs immediately based on...

As reported in the Forums certain hubbers appear to have "Pet" status and their new hubs get published immediately without the 24-48 hours "pending" delay (orbiting arrows). What's the criteria for this (all had hubber scores above 95). or is it related to what's in the hub -...

Why has Google not indexed my hub, although Bing and Yahoo have?My hub on Acid Attacks on Women is 8 days old and I pinged it after publishing it. It still does not appear to be indexed in Google, but it does show up on Bing and Yahoo searches. Google does have all of my other hubs. What's up?

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 notification could be delayed, too.
