Five days ago I opted out of Editors Choice hubs. Today I checked my Google Webmaster index and found that only 37 out of 80 hubs are being indexed. None of those that were once Editors Choice were listed. Using their tools I recrawled my site, but nothing changed. Does anybody know how to get Google to include the entire set of hubs in their indexing? Or is this a Hubpages glitch?
I'm not sure how that works. You're saying that you once had EC hubs and have now opted out?
Are those previous EC hubs now listed with your subdomain URL?
Are all of your 80 hubs currently featured?
All 80 hubs are listed on my Hubpages site and all are featured. It appears that all 80, plus a few questions show up on Google Analytics. But only 37 show up on Google Webmaster.
When I did a search for your URL, it shows that some of your hubs have the hubpages.com URL, but when I clicked on the hub link, it shows your subdomain URL. It looks like your former EC hubs are still indexed with the HP domain URL? I'm not sure about this because I couldn't find any info on what happens to those hubs if you opt out of EC. You might need a direct response from a staff member or someone else who has had a similar experience after opting out of EC.
Did you try using the Google fetch tool to sumbit those hubs that aren't indexed?
I searched, site:http://watergeek.hubpages.com/ and it shows 43 results including your profile page. So you're missing 38 hubs? Were they all former EC hubs?
Yes I did use the Fetch tool before I posted my message. And all the unindexed ones were EC. Like you, I was wondering if HP was holding onto them, for some reason. Maybe they don't have a built-in macro to let EC hubs go when somebody opts out. Since you have come to the same conclusion I have, I'll post this issue in the Technical section for HP to pick up. Thanks, rebekahELLE.
I tried reporting the thread to move to the Technical forum. Hopefully you can get a definitive response from staff. Good luck!

When I first signed up with GA I used hubpages.com Later I added my subdomain address. However, my account is set up with property name hubpages.com and default URL my subdomain. I believe this is incorrect. Thus Webmaster Tools are saying that my sites are not verified. What do I need to do?...

I would like to direct this post to the HP staff. I had my HP account set up in Google Webmaster Tools when the subdomain was promisem.hubpages.com. Now that the address is http://hubpages.com/@promisem, the GWT reports no longer work.When I try to set up a new profile in GWT, it appends a slash to...

Hubbers, I'm sorry that we can't tell you why your traffic is going down or why Google was showing Hubs on hubpages.com and now has reverted to showing them on the subdomain. We are similarly frustrated. We do know Google announced a panda update last week. We also can see Hubs...

Hi everyoneI have a question and a problem. I joined Hubpages the very end of September. When I first submit my hubs, they recieve some traffic, and I check after a few days to make sure they are indexed with Google. If they are not indexed with Google, I use the free url submission services....

My latest two or three hubs has faced a very peculiar situation. They did not got indexed to Google even after two or three days. Only manual submission solved the problem. Is it for the recent changes in Hubpages? I have not faced such problems before (never had to wait more than 12 hours).

Hi Hubbers,After hours of exhaustive searches through webpages and attempting the steps on various HubPage articles that say how to add a HubPages sitemap to no avail, I finally found a service that hosts sitemaps, automatically submits it to Google Webmaster Tools, and updates it regularly....
