What's going on with my Hubpage on Google Search Console ?
Everything was working fine. I'd uploaded a sitemap (/sitemaps/hub/current/sitemap-hub-adamharkus.xml.gz), with no errors, but now I'm getting the error :
General HTTP error: HTTP 403 error (Forbidden) HTTP Error: 403
my robots.txt file starts with the following lines:
Sitemap: http://hubpages.com/sitemaps/hub/curren … _index.xml
Sitemap: http://hubpages.com/sitemaps/category/c … _index.xml
Sitemap: http://hubpages.com/sitemaps/forum/curr … _index.xml
Sitemap: http://hubpages.com/sitemaps/question/c … _index.xml
Sitemap: http://hubpages.com/sitemaps/user/curre … _index.xml
is this correct?
It also has a warning flagged on line 61:
Also my crawl stats have also bottomed out after a good start.
'Fetch as google' has also started throwing up an error with a status of 'Redirected'
What is going on with Hubpages ?
Thank you, that's what I feared. If you can't submit a sitemap won't that mean reduced traffic? I'll post a separate question on this.
Not having submitted a sitemap will not in itself cause a reduction in traffic (HubPages will have submitted one for the whole site anyway), but the change in structure definitely can cause initial traffic losses.
Then there's the suspected google panda update just to confuse things further.
Everyone's in a wait and see frame of mind at the mo....including HP management.
That sounds ominous. Thanks very much for the info, sounds like a whole lot of nothing we can do about it.

I haven't tried to have a plagiarized page removed from Google search since the change to the niches. How do we prove ownership if we no longer have access to webmaster tools for our pages? My recent request was rejected on this basis:'Thanks for reaching out to us.It is unclear to us whether or...

I noticed that 98% of my hub organic traffic is from google, why not from other search engines, specifically yahoo search engine and bing?

Does Google hate HubPages? I've never seen any search term return even a single hub in Google search results. Have you?

This week i have noticed a massive reduction of traffic from 1200 to 300 views per day. When I searched Google, I found that most of the Hubs have reduced Google ranking. The Most disheartening thing is pages that over take me in Google search are in fact advertisements and few sentence pages. In...
