    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?

      Every time I've checked my webmaster tools, it shows no hubs indexed and yet it will show traffic, keywords and back links. I'm totally new to this so maybe I have to try that google fetch tool you mentioned.

    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 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: 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!

              Cool, thanks. I started writing another hub and forgot about it for a second.
