      For one, you haven't even had them up for a whole day yet.  It takes Google more than 22 hours to find stuff.  This isn't like making poptarts or something... you don't just stuff an article into a hubpages slot, press a button and "boing" it pops up on the front page of Google.

      Patience.  smile

      And welcome to HP

      It won't happen today. It can take weeks or months, so I keep reading.

      Yeah it takes time. You could put in your exact URL and probably find it that way but as far as searching, it takes a couple of days and even then if bigG doesn't find the right key words you might be buried under hundreds of other pages and sites.

      21 hours and asking such a question?

      I fear you won't have the patience or the stickability to last long in this business.

        I've been readying all about why peoples hub isn't appearing in a google search and patience is the key.  I have posted several hubs and it has been almost 1 week.  Any suggestions, I feel I have used a lot of the correct key words.

        I think people just would like to know that what they have written is relevant and will show up, it's all about the destination for me than money.  To me it's success if a hub shows up in google.

          I think you asking an unfair question.  I have a few hubs that show up in google in a place where they can be found but I have 60 others that are no where to be found, easily that is.

          Using key words is good but whatever it is you are writing about might be in tough competition.  When you think about it, for nearly any given subject there is like a million others writing about the same things all using the same key words....

          So, for you it might have more to do with "originality" than anything else.

    Welcome to HubPages Martin smile

    Because it takes a little while for google to find them, but no more than a few days usually.

    Umm, Im pretty sure with hubpages you can have your topic on google within hours, depending on how you have it interlinked and how good the article is.

    It takes a few days for a regular site to get indexed, but after publishing a hub it will *usually* be on Google within a few hours.

      Yip.  I am also pretty sure that using hubpages gives an automatic index. 

      I would think that it is because it goes into their site map.  I think the person is asking why he can't find his particular hubs.  So I was saying that they are there, just not easily found unless he looks for it specifically as in his url or exact title of the hub.

      But I have seen that even exact titles don't show up where you think they should.  Who knows when it comes to the world of google. big_smile

    Ah, you know, I don't stress about these things anyway, about how long it takes to get indexed or "found". As long as I continue to get visitors and I keep getting clicks, I'm happy.

    I do as much as I can from my end to get traffic, and that's the best I can do.

    If you are just wanting to see your link in google, then you can do some bookmarking and have it there within a few hours. Of course it will be the bookmark url that directs to your page, but a link in google is a link in google in my book. Digg.com does a very good job of this and I recommend them, hopefully by the time this link starts dropping your site link will be on the rise. Of course where the link shows up has everything to do with Search Engine Optimization, competition, originality and only the big G knows what other factors. So get in the habit of bookmarking your articles and you should see fast results and hopefully more clicks.

    Your Hubs have heaps of competition,(with other Google articles) so keywords would be a Huge factor, that and the fact you need to give the process time.
    I did find one of them. But quite a long way down the line. There are heaps written about your subject matter.
    hope it helps
