    Hello all,

    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.
      Good luck!

        Marketing Merit,

        The article's not being indexed. Yes, it is a featured article.

    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.

    Thanks again,

    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.
