I'm wondering if somebody can help me. To explain my problem:
Five days ago I published two hubs. The first achieved pages 1 to 5 over a number of keywords on Google. I have not sighted the second hub but not overly worried by that. Both hubs had the same hub address/name except the second had the suffix "Part Two". I linked both hubs to my web site which had gained promising page ranking given its short life.
Today I noticed the hub and my website have disappeared off Google, except the web site can be viewed by typing its name in the Google address bar. I am perturbed by this as both web site and hub were improving page ranks nicely.
Have I made a mistake by:
1. Naming both hubs the same except for the suffix?
2. Linking my site to both hubs with identical names except, again, for the suffix?
Has anybody experienced these or similar problems? To hopefully reinstate both the major hub and web site to their previous page ranking,
1.Should I re-name the second hub differently to Part 1? and/or
2.Should I delete the second link from my web site?
3. I wrote the article as one large hub but because of its size, split it into 2 parts. Accordingly, as a third alternative, should I delete Parts 1 and 2 and re-publish both as one large hub, of some 3000 words.
Any sound advice would be appreciated.
It is very normal for website to go off Google radar sometimes. Keep working on building backlink to the site and hubs and it will come back again.
If you alter a site especially if you change key words it will disappear for a while. One of mine has disappeared for a month now. I'm not sure if it will come back... Others have.
It's quite difficult to tell you the exact reason of why your hubs aren't listed in google anymore but there are a few things that can lead to this situation:
1) You've been spamming the social networks for links.
2) You copied content from elsewhere.
Thank you both for taking your time to respond and for your reassuring remarks.
I find it odd that well intentioned, informative and costly web sites should suddenly disappear, not just off Google, but off the other browsers as well. I forgot to mention in my original post that I had added a compatible YouTube video to the Part One hub. Surely that addition didn't cause the dilemma of 2 hub sites and a website to become lost overnight in cyber wilderness, although according to Google Analytics, they don't exist.
On a lighter note, today Google Adsense approved my account and, despite my previous instruction, noticed the hub examples duly exhibiting competitor's ads. Haha. Just as well my hubs are out there with the Hubble, somewhere. Obviously Analytics and Adsense don't communicate.
Thank you too, broalexdotinfo.
Your comments are noted.
For your information, neither suggestions apply nor ever will. To be honest I don't know how to spam a social site and copying other author's content or writing junk is not my culture. To the contrary I spent well over 50 hours researching and composing my hubs. The only links are between the two hubs and my web site - 4 in all. Haven't yet worked out how to link to Twitter, etc. Seems some robot somewhere has stuttering cybernetics.
I recently had one of my Hubs drop off of Google too. I was ranking high for my keyword and now it's gone. I don't do the social bookmark spamming thing, so I'm pretty confused. I can't even find my site when I put the URL in.
The Empire is absolutely right. One of my website has been in the top 5 of google for over 30 different keywords and keyword phrases. It bobbles up and down at first but eventually it will steady out and as long as you maintain it then it most likely wont move much

I've been writing here for quite a few years, I go back to the ancient era before the 'featured' 'not featured' declension.I have found that 'fixing' a Hub which is not featured is a total waste of time, as in a day or so, after a fix, it is back to unfeatured. I did an experiment and I can...

I have been hub hopping lately and I am disgusted with the incoherent garbage that I am coming across - nothing but poorly translated articles of about 400 words, usually without even any formatting. I would say that more than half of the articles I randomly encounter are clearly nothing but spun...

Something strange is going on. I have a hub that's been doing really well for years. It was hub-pro edited a couple of months ago and traffic increased by a couple hundred a day. Over the last week or so it's hovered around 750 per day. Overall it has almost half a million views.Today, views are...

Anyone who knows SEO knows that Google prefers fresh content but when our newely published hubs undergo the 24 hour pending publication with a no index tag added to the robot txt our hubs loose their freshness by the time the no index tag is taken off therefore Google does not give our hubs the...

Is there a way to get rid of unwanted traffic sites that attach a link to our hubs without our knowledge? I try to individually monitor my hubs for suspicious traffic and have written two letters to the offender who has sent me 8 visits on one hub this week. Now HubPages has marked my hub with a...
