I'm relatively new to hubpages so throwing off a few questions that I have on my mind. Once a article is published and featured how long does it take for it to end up on search engines?
From what I see, your articles are already indexed in google and bing so that pretty much answers your question.
One of my higher pageviewed Hubs took 3 months before I was getting any relevant traffic from Google. Another hub of mine only took like a week. You can also go here: http://www.google.com/submityourcontent/ and you can get to a page in webtools to submit your URL directly to the index.
After posting the hub, you can post your URL in Google webmaster tool..It will indexed by Google fastly..So that your page is display in first page of search engine result page..
I find it varies, I've had some show up straight away and others seem to take a few days. When I make any edits that also seems to take longer but I haven't been on here long either so could just be me!
You can perform a search on Google to check your articles index status. Here's the search operator:
Without "". It usually takes around 1-2 days depending on your hub quality and social activity.
Some hubs take only a few hours whilst others can take days and days, it depends on quality and whether or not Google values your site.
On Webmaster tools under Crawl Errors click on Fetch As Google and you can put your URL in for submission. Reading through the forums this seems to be one of the quickest ways to get indexed.
Some say that this Fetch As Google allows the original author to index faster which means that plagiarists and scrapers won't get the chance to scrape and beat you to the Google ladder, claiming original authorship!
It's a dark and mysterious world out there in Googleland. Best of luck.
Thanks for your tips but how I can add my hubpage account to webmaster tools because they need verification and we don't have any access to hubpage admin page.

How do I find out if a Hub is indexed by search engines?I've noticed other Hubbers mentioning that they check to see if their hubs are indexed by the search engines like Google. How do I do this? Sorry if the answer is painfully obvious, I'm just not very savvy when it comes to this stuff! Thanks

Wordpress submits each post to ping services like pingomatic. Should we be submitting our Hubs to these services or submit a ping each time we post a new Hub?

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...

I did a hub about 24 hours ago with keywords on a topic that yields only four or five pertinent search results on Google. Today, I am not finding my hub when I enter the search terms. Does it take longer than a day for things to show up?
