I published a new article "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In: The Complete Series Box Set-DVD Review" over the weekend, and don't see it listed in Google, Yahoo, and Bing search engines. My past articles have been in the search engines fairly fast. Any idea why the article isn't on the search engines yet? There aren't that many reviews of the set on the Net so far.
Thanks for the info,
Not entirely sure if you mean that it's not indexed or that it's not ranking on page 1.
If it's the former, then try pinging your article. This usually helps to get it indexed but don't abuse the process. I'm also assuming that your article is featured and doesn't have a no follow tag which tells search engines not to index it.
Thanks for the reply.I appreciate it. It's just a few years ago, the hubs I wrote would get in the search engines pretty fast.
Your hubs may or may not be in google.
They might also fluctuate, in and out.
Only featured hubs have the possibility of being indexed.
If your hub is not featured, it will be what is called, "noindex"
by hub and will signal google to not index it.
Not sure if most people know this.
If your new hub is not featured, or becomes unfeatured, it will not be in google.
You can either what for the Google spiders to find it, or submit it yourself https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools … -url?pli=1
How can we find out if our featured article has a non-follow link?
The article is now on Google. Thanks again psycheskinner and everyone else here in this discussion.

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

I hope somebody can help. I now have 49 hubs, and yet not one of them are seen by the search engines. When I click on their stats, it says under 'search phrases,' no search terms to add.(list of words that appear commonly in searches that bring visitors to your hub.)It seems that all my hubs need...

I'm in the process of migrating my content from my blog to HubPages and just transferred an article titled "Top 50 Men's Grooming Blogs for 2014." I just switched this article to HubPages a few moments ago (using a 301 redirect). I'm already on the first page of google for the key term...

Alright, so in an effort to improve both traffic and conversions, we should explore whatever myths or curiosities some of us may have. People have often said that an article's length defines quality, at least to the search engines. Personally, i dont believe any of it. Sure, the more words you have...

I have a hub that gets anywhere from 200-300 views every single day. It's an evergreen hub. Unfortunately, if I type the title in GOOGLE it's not ranking anywhere near 1st page. However, it is on the 2nd or 3rd page for some keyword phrases, but rank is still low.What can I do to dramatically...
