I am getting the following message in WMT on one of my hubs:
Googlebot couldn't crawl this URL because it points to a non-existent page. Generally, 404s don't harm your site's performance in search, but you can use them to help improve the user experience.
When I search the hub it appears in the SERPS - what could be the problem?
Try submitting on WMT under Crawl "Fetch as Google" again. I use that tool over and over and have never gotten such a message. I have encountered other errors however, but they seem corrected over a short period of time.
You can also check the exact URL in question to see what HTTP code is being returned by the web server using a site like this one.

How long does it take Google to crawl a not featured hub?I published a not featured hub 8-9 days ago, but I cannot find it on Google yet. I know it should take from 2 to 7 days. Is something changed about that?

Have you ever published a featured hub?Would be very grateful to hear your experiences of featured hubs - do you get more views? is it ranked higher generally? should the standard be very high? etc.
