Having a issue and I can't seem to figure out why. I republished one of my hubs this past week and for some reason when I search for it using the tittle name it's not showing up. The tittle name is What is ABA therapy - helping children with autism. I did find it listed in its category area but no luck when searching for it on the hubpages web site. It is a featured hub so doesn't really make sense. Any ideas????
Unfortunately, the HubPages search function doesn't work very well.
The HubPages site search is not as robust as Google's algorithm.
Part of the issue is that the search uses all the words and not just the words in the order you specified and there appear to be many articles about autism.
You can do a Google search of HubPages like this:
https://www.google.com/search?as_q=%22w … as_rights=
My guess would be that few people are going to come to the site and search for Hubs by title.
I've also noticed that the search function doesn't return the expected results. There definitely is room for improvement there. I would suggest not worrying too much about the search results here as most people (not hubbers) who find your page aren't going to intuitively use the search to search for other things. They'll most likely go back to google or bing and search from there.

Today we're changing the internal search engine on HubPages to run Google Custom Search. We know that search on HubPages didn't always work as intended, and we expect Google to ultimately provide more relevant results for both Hubbers and visitors using the site. The new search feature should not...

Something strange is going on. I have a hub that's been doing really well for years. It was hub-pro edited a couple of months ago and traffic increased by a couple hundred a day. Over the last week or so it's hovered around 750 per day. Overall it has almost half a million views.Today, views are...

I published a hub a about three weeks ago, titled: "Defining My Purpose on HubPages: Aftermath of My Wars on HubPages Forums". I've written and published one more hub after that (it's still undergoing the site's quality assessment process) and I'm planning to write more hubs.I...

Since the latest Google update, my top 20 articles have shifted around and some that were not doing that well are now near the top on my stats page. These high performing hubs are mostly getting their views from android.google.com. Why are they not showing up as google.com? I have had mobile...

When searching for unscrupulously borrowed copies of my work sometimes I come across results that don't seem to really be there. Even though I search for a sentence in quotes, and the SERPs shows that quote in my results, when I click on the link either the text isn't really there, or I get a...
