I received this email from Google this morning:
"To: Webmaster of http://smartandfun.hubpages.com/,
Googlebot identified a significant increase in the number of URLs on http://smartandfun.hubpages.com/ that return a 404 (not found) error. This can be a sign of an outage or misconfiguration, which would be a bad user experience. This will result in Google dropping those URLs from the search results. If these URLs don't exist at all, no action is necessary. "
I'm assuming this is because my hubs are no longer under my subdomain, but I want to run it by the people here on this forum because I'm not too knowledgeable on this stuff
So should I not worry about this because the URLs no longer exist? Does this mean I could be getting traffic from old backlinks and now I'm not? Should I be concerned or let this slide? Has anyone else gotten this email?

I recall Hubpages only allowing 200 characters on the summaries. Now I see that you can write a longer summary for a hubpage article. Why was this implemented and when? I'm assuming it could help with search...
