    Anyone publish an article lately and notice Google slow to index it ? Most of the times my hubs are in google a day later, usually no longer than 3 days

          The Hubs I've published this month, including the one I published yesterday, have been indexed by Google within an hour after coming out of 'Pending' status and being 'Featured.'  The same with Bing/Yahoo, too.  HubPages sends an updated sitemap to both search engines every hour.

          If this isn't working for you, wait an hour after your new Hub is featured to make sure Googlebot doesn't hit a NoIndex tag and add the new Hub yourself from Google Webmaster Tools.

          From the left menu, click on 'Health.'
          Choose 'Fetch as Google' from the drop-down menu.
          Then, add your new Hub URL. 
          When it has been successfully 'fetched', click on the box that says 'submit to index.'

    Buddy it can be happen, There are two main reasons.
    1) When the profile score will be less than 75.
    2) When we share the published hub as in bulk (In many places). Then google think we are promoting our hubpage. So that It can happen.
