Can't find my hub anywhere in Hub Land

    Even after a few days of waiting, I can't find my hubs unless I specifically type the titles in on the search engine on this site. I used to find my hubs everywhere. Can someone explain this? I did all this work and it's not easily accessible to viewers! ARG!

      ok, here's my question- when you say you can't find them do you mean on the front page of HP? Are you meaning in the few listed under each category header under topics? Do you mean on the list of hot hubs? If so then you won't see your hub on any of those list unless or until it becomes a 'popular' hub. If it is getting a lot of views/comments etc. Or has a high individual score, it will make it to the front.
      Even people who have been hubbing a while don't have hubs featured there. Finding your hubs via the search bar is usually the only way to find them.
      If you are worried that others aren't finding your stuff, then you need to get your name out around the community to draw in traffic within HP, forums and commenting keeps you active in hubtivity which will help draw readers. Use some social networking sites such as MySpace, FaceBook or Twitter to drive in outside traffic.

      as your scores/views etc grows, you will see your hubs being featured on the above lists.

      Hope that helps smile

    I can find mine in both search and in the category. So I guess its something isolated? Maybe contacting the admins/staff is needed?

    edit: just tested I can also find your hubs both in search and in the relevant category... So may have been a temporary glitch?

    Thanks Janetta, and what a nice profile pic!
    in answer to your question:

    1)I went to the related section where I posted the hub
    2)It wasn't even on the "latest" section.
    3) Since I am new, I figured I wouldn't be on the best or hot list (though my spouse might argue that)
    4) I figured it was a glitch, but needed to know if others experience the same as well.

    Hi AsherKade:

    I went and looked at your latest hub, clicked on the category, and saw it listed under both hot and latest at http://hubpages.com/topics/politics-and … orism/4946

    Perhaps you were looking at the top-level category, instead of a more specific one?  So many hubs are published every day that hubs are not listed for very long on top-level category "latest" pages.
