      You can add it manually through Google Webmasters at www.google.com/addurl.html if you choose.

        I believe your site receives a better ranking if it is found naturally (via links) than if you submit it manually. If you can't wait go for it I suppose.

    Yea same thing here. I published two hubs around 13 days ago normally they are indexed the same day or at least by a Thursday. The other search engines indexed them though I hope google isn't slapping hubpages or something like that. Have the other engines indexed your hubs as well?

    'featured by HP' is pretty meaningless -- all it takes is 1 or 2 hits a month and a hub is 'featured'

    Sometimes it takes a while for Google to get around to crawling things- sorry for the delay!!

    That also has me confused Google crawled my site > 5 times since publication and still did not index it.

      Go to sites which curate content and submit your link there. Find a relevant topic or niche where it will be welcome.

      Start at Scoop.it or Snip.it - I like both of those. Better yet, join up and become a content curator so you can feature your own links in your own topics.

      Google likes finding your links on sites other than HubPages. You will get indexed sooner if you have some clout (Klout too). http://klout.com/#/thatgrrl

        be careful -- while google likes links, it penalizes links from link-farms like those mentioned, , shetoldme, reddit, etc

      "Google doesn't crawl all the pages on the web, and we don't index all the pages we crawl. It's perfectly normal for not all the pages on a site to be indexed."

    How do you know whether your article is indexed by Google or not?

    (I am rather ignorant in these matters, I'm afraid - I just write and hope for the best ... )

      Copy the url of your article into the Google search field. If you see it in the search results - it's indexed.

    A Hub I posted only 4 days ago is indexed in Google.  I'm not seeing any issues.
