    I know there's been an update on Google that has cut Hubpages traffic by 20% across the board but I noticed on all of my popular hubs that Google and Bing haven't crawled them in 10 days! Is this normal? Or has Google just stopped featuring our pages in the search results?

      Don't worry it's just a bug. Day before I published a hub after 15 months and it was up on google within 3 hours of being featured on Hubpages and it says that it hasn't been crawled yet when I check stats.

      I've also made changes to the title of another hub and it shows on Google and Bing too, but the stats say last crawled is 9 days ago.

    Is this still a bug?  I noticed across the board that my hubs were last crawled 4 weeks ago by Google and Bing.  I've done daily updates to several over the past week, yet the crawl stats have not changed on those.  Or is it routine to take a month for pages to be re-crawled?

    I'm answering my own question here.  There is still a bug in the Last Crawled stats for Google and Bing.  I checked google on several hubs I updated this past week, and their cache is showing the latest hub updates.

      Glad to hear it!  I have quite a few hubs showing they haven't been crawled in 5 weeks!

        It is not abnormal for Google to crawl a page once and then not do so again ever or not on a specific timeframe.
        The main thing to understand is if it is indexed by Google or other search engines.

        I'll use one of the OP's Hubs as an example. … hen-Scraps

        If you do a Google search in the format

        and if that returns the page, then it is indexed.
        So this Hub is indexed. … p;oe=utf-8

        There may be an option in Google Webmaster Tools to force a crawl of a URL, but HubPages does not have any control over when or how Google or other search engines choose to crawl content.

        You can also search for the Hub using search on HubPages as it uses Google's search and will also only return indexed content.

          Thanks for the explanation!  That makes sense.  Looks like the stats just aren't reading right. (It says one of my hubs has never been indexed, but it's searchable.)  As long as it is actually searchable we're good!

    Whether for a new Hub or an update you can always (re)submit it to Google's Crawl URL form: … ue=/addurl

      I did earlier today.  I'm just waiting for the crawls to either happen or show up on Google Webmaster, wherever the holdup is! smile
