    In my other accounts, I've deleted +150 hubs and after a week, they still appear in search engines under hubpages! Though the content is no longer exist, but the HP still keep all the words from my articles in SE, thus make my articles not unique anymore!!! What a thief!

      It might just be that Google hasn't yet re-crawled those Hubs to see that they have been deleted. Don't worry dominicz, we won't keep your content, and there are no Hubs (published, unpublished, drafts) associated with your account. smile

          And Simone starts posting at around 6 AM - My theory is that she's really a Gestalt Entity with an omniscient understanding of everything that goes on at HP... Unfortunately, with knowledge comes power... and responsibility... And she cannot share all, lest the knowledge mean that we were never the same again.

          I have insomnia, I shouldn't really be posting at 4:40 AM...

    That is Google's doing, not HP's.

    You can go to webmaster tools and request the hubs be removed from Google's index. They'll usually disappear within 24 hours.
