Is this a record? I published it on the 22nd of Nov. Still unread by google, along with everything else I've published since. That's nearly a month in lingo, obviously getting no views apart from the initial few straight after publishing from HP.
This isn't ideal, I have no idea when google will visit. I remember the days when I could publish a hub and have it in google the same day. If this is down to this noindex while pending business, it would be great if something could be done about it. Who knows when google and the rest of the world will see my latest stuff? Does anyone think waiting a month or more before being indexed is a good thing?
How can you tell if a hub has been crawled? I wouldn't have a clue.
I have google toolbar installed. There is a feature on there that allows you to check when a page was cached by google. If it hasn't been cached by google yet, then it is invisible to searches. You just need to install google toolbar and then enable the pagerank button. This button also allows you to instantly check the pagerank of any page that you're currently viewing as it automatically updates while you browse. Useful for backlinking.
Anyway, I published my hub on the 25/11/12 which is over 5 weeks ago. It has still not been picked up by google so obviously gets 0 views.
Do you have a google webmaster account? If not you should set one up and as soon as the hub becomes featured go and submit them to be indexed - makes the process a lot quicker. I did this even before the 'idling' process came along.
I looked at this and found that we're supposed to put some HTML code into the page's HTML, which is something we're not really allowed to do; am I misunderstanding this? How does someone go about verifiying a domain? Do you have to do this for each Hub?
I do have one, I'll give this a try, thanks.

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...

We all want hubpages to be full of hubs that are informative, containing facts, well-researched observations, or personal insights in various areas. Yet some of the most popular hubs are, frankly, JUNK, IMHO. Here's...

I have encountered a very poorly written hub, the spelling and grammar was bad and the sentences were incomprehensible. The hub has less than 300 words in total including the title (268 words exactly) and has more than...

My best hub for traffic has had near a 50% daily drop in views since the new layout went into effect. It is not at the most relevant time, but traffic had been rising. The date is obviously hurting this hub as people...
