    If you get a backlink to a hubpage from another site, how long is it before google et al pick up on it?

    As long as it takes- no one knows except Google and they ain't saying - it varies widely depending on the topic the age of both sites, the phase of the moon and who knows what else!

    what sort of time scale, do you know? Hours, days, weeks, months?

      In my experience on checking backlinks to my own website, it can take up to at least 2 months

      I'd say weeks to months on average.

    search - LINK: WWW.XYZ.COM

    You will find all links leading to WWW.XYZ.COM. If the link you are looking for is there in the results, you are there INDEXED.

    I had an old blog that just could not get ranked for the life of me. A gave up on it, then a year and a half later I decided to check up on it, and what do you know. There it was on google.
    It could have been the day after i stopped updating it. Who knows.
    It does take time.

    on the oppposite end of the spectrum...you can get indexed in an hour

    I would guess it may depend on the traffic to your site....just a couple of days ago.. the ebay community, had an issue with auctiva.com... i wrote a quick venting article-just a blog post nothing informative



    50 hits in the first hour - so i quickly wrote 3 more articles/ a hub page - bookmarked it across the social bookmarking sites and stuck it into topblog lists

    (the blog itself was already indexed - with a couple other posts being number 1 in google for their search terms)

    it was hit 1-7 on google page 1 for 3 diff search strings -withinn the hour

    I dont think there is any real rhyme or reason (but traffic has to be a consideration as does backlinks)

    I linked that same article over to a brand new page I created with a dupe post (unindexed) that page was indexed within the hour also

    this all happened yesterday ....and that search term will be dead forever by tomorrow

    luckily the traffic generated 15 amazon sales and 2 clickbank sales..so ws worth an hours labor -plu sits kind of fun to see the changes in real time

    thanks all.

    I wondered, because checking a couple of mu hubs, they seem to have no backlinks at all, and I know they do actually have some.

      oh, im sorry..i seem to have missed the point....yeah...it usually seems to take months for yahoo site explorer to recognize my backlinks...i dont know what i thought you were asking..my bad

    sorry, my fault - I wasn't clear enough.

    You can try submitting your hub's rss feed to an rss submitter.

    I don't know any good ones, I can't recommend. Im not even sure how effective it is.
    Just throwing ideas out.

    Take a look here:

    http://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/

    This one tends to give more detail than the google search.

    thanks Mark! That looks a lot better and more detailed.

    Oh, I've been using siteexplorer too. It's great. Seems yahoo doesn't obey the nofollow because i can find a lot of nofollow links in siteexplorer. Interesting.

      Thats true - nofollow is entirely a google creation. You will always see more links in yahoo than google- Ive had yahoo links show in hours- the google ones can take a year!

    NO Follow is a HTML tag created by google, but many of the major search engines do recognize the tag. The rules they apply to it vary though..

    So I tried searching up my first hub post on google and i can't find it. It doesn't seem to be indexed yet.  Is there some sort of nofollow on the hub by default? I'm not falking about hyperlinks from my hub. I mean, my hub being on google.

    i will say it will be permanent...i mean once its been stored in google's database will stay there...may be after some time google might go on that site and if your link is deleted then may be you lost that backlink....still its a guess...well serch on the net ...might get good ideas......plz dont forget to share it...lol...

    I find that linking to my hubs from a site that is frequently "spidered" and indexed quickly by G helps.

    On two of my blogs, my content is indexed in G within minutes it seems.  By linking (relevantly of course) to my hubs, I find that they get indexed not too long after.

    I always thought it depends on how quickly the site that linked to you gets crawled.  So for example, if you're using Hubpages to give backlink to your personal site, the link will be established within 1-2 days.

      This is true, but I have had HP index within 20 minutes.  It is all about (unknowable) timing.
