Should we Ping our Hubs?
Does it drive traffic to hubs? I really do not know much about how this works.
Pinging your hubs after you first publish them or whenever you update them will speed up how quickly they're indexed by the search engines.I usually see small spikes in traffic whenever i ping sites or hubs. There are numerous different ping sites out there. Usually all you do is enter your site,blog or hub name/title and it's url then select services to be pinged (just check all) and hit the Ping button - only takes a few seconds to do.Don't overdo it though - just new and updated content.
I still don't understand this pinging thing. And what sites are out there? thanks.
I too dont have much knowledge about ping exactly, but how much i have gathered information about ping, it is used to make your page or website appear in different search engine fast and quickly to gain more traffic. it is used to help search engine to index your page or website quickly....
Pinging your hub doesn't automatically equate to mass traffic. You may get a little.
Pinging is simply a way for you to alert all search engines that you've got a new piece of content you just published, and you'd like for it to get indexed more quickly.
Believe it or not, your content does not automatically show on Google as soon as you publish it.
You can find this out by going to the Google search bar (not the browser part) and typing in the following command:
Site:Your Hubpages URL.
For example, if we take Darren Rowse's blog URL you would do this:
When you hit enter, you'll see either one of two things:
1) The actual result of what your hubpage would look like on the search engines (your site has been indexed)
2) Nothing. No results at all. (site not yet indexed)
It usually takes about 1 to 3 days to get a hubpage indexed on the search engine. Once it's indexed, it's easier for you to start throwing backlinks on it and getting it to climb the ranks.
Even though you can see the hub and certain people with your URL can see the hub, that doesn't mean it's yet available in the index on Google.
It's kind of like a library book. A brand new book comes into the library. People in the know get to it first. But not everyone int he library will know it's available until put into the index cards.

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...

I am not going to drag up the recent massive plagiarism activity again, but - as you know Maddie - I have found that quite a lot of my hubs have been de-indexed and my traffic here is dropping despite publishing new work and despite actively promoting myself outside of hubpages. I realize that it...

We have added a feature to the Search tab under the stats box on each Hub that enables you to see when that Hub that has last been crawled by search engines.When an Idle Hub is crawled, search engines will see that it has a noindex tag, which indicates to search engines that the page should not...

Wordpress submits each post to ping services like pingomatic. Should we be submitting our Hubs to these services or submit a ping each time we post a new Hub?

I now have 11 hubs that are not indexed by google - nothing published since July 12 (the last one was published on the 9th and indexed yesterday). Normally I've seen then set up with 24 hours, occasionally in 48, but now it's 8 days and not done!!??

I'm quite baffled, since I have read that typically Google is supposed to index hubs within 24 hours. It's been about a week since I first submitted my hub, and it still has not been indexed by Google or Yahoo. I've even submitted it to Digg and social networking sites, but -- nothing. Oddly, my...
