    What are reasons a hub wouldn't get indexed by Google?

    I wrote what I'd consider a decent informative hub about 4 weeks ago, and it still hasn't been indexed by Google. I'm not exactly sure why, and I haven't done a lot of research into the possible cause, but maybe someone else knows some reasons why your hub wouldn't be indexed...

    How do you check if the hub has been indexed in Google?

    Try typing in site:(your hub URL)

    Two of your hubs were published 4 weeks back and both of them are indexed. See the links below.

    1) site:http://hubpages.com/hub/Google-Trends-Analysis-of-Pandora-Search-Terms

    2) http://hubpages.com/hub/Pandora-Streami … ewelry-Fad

    P.S. You don't need to use "popular everyday words and adverbs in your title" as suggested by someone here.

    If you submit your hub to digg.com it will be indexed by Google withing one hour.  How cool is that?

    Maybe you should make a lengthy hub. Also a fresh content is preferable by search engine spiders. It will get indexed soon! Moreover, you must be patience.

    There are a lot of factors involved. I would say that it mostly depends on backlinks and authority. Meaning, the more pages that link to your hub, the more quickly you will get indexed simply because it is easier for google to find.

    By authority I mean, your profile authority. If you are constantly publishing, google will see that each time it visits your profile, there is new content and will come back more often, to see if there is new content. If there is new content, they will come back again soon. Ultimately, helping to increase your authority.

    If you have published one hub and done nothing else, it could take a while to get indexed.

    I Google myself all the time to see how many pages Google gives me and have noted my Hubpages showing up in the search so I think most all hubs are indexed.

    The thing is, if you pick poor title words you may not know how to find your work.

    Choose your title very, very, very carefully using the keywords you think someone will use in a search and repeat those words in sub-titles where possible and use appropriate tags.

    reason behind  hub wouldn't get indexed by Google is homepage traffic and content is unique and more traffic so google crawler crawl  the site more time same as twitter and facebook

    Reasons for not getting indexed would be poor quality spun articles and repeated content. Neither of these should happen as hubpages seems pretty good and picking those up and alerting the owner that revision is required.
