    Maybe the robots haven't gotten around to indexing it yet.

    There are a number of reasons that you may not be able to find your hub:

    1. It takes a while for google to re-index your hub. If you only recently changed the title it may take a while for it to find its way into the search results

    2. It may be ranked really low and maybe you have not gone deep enough into the search results

    3. google now personalizes search results. What you see when you search for a given search term is not necessarily what others see. It is possible that the hub is visible in search results for other users but not for you

    Google has become a lot more strict about pages that come through on their engine and have begun phasing out blogs and things like hubpages more that before.

    There are several reasons you may not find your hub via Google search.

    1) check spelling in your search, your hub title and your hub URL address.

    2) Your hub may be too new and not yet indexed.

    3) Your hub may be of content that is in violation of Google TOS.

    4) Your hub may be buried way down deep in the search results due to poor format, poor content or lack of effective keyword research and implementation.

    5) Your search terms may be insufficient.

    I hope this provides some help for you. There well may be more reasons  not listed above.

    Simple really – No keyword stuffing, no long tail keyword phrase research, no bullshit marketing or paying for links - I simply followed hubpages’ instructions on how to write a flagship hub which are:

    A minimum of 1500 words, of your own, purely original writing

    A minimum of 3 relevant video capsules (YouTube or Google)

    A minimum of 5 relevant non-copyrighted images

    At least 10 relevant, helpful links to other sources, each with your own 30-50 word description

    A news capsule (or highly-relevant RSS feed), or eBay Capsule if your topic is product-related

    15 relevant tags, including 2-3 common misspellings or spelling variants (if any)
    Maximum 150 word succinct description of the utility of your Flagship Hub in the Summary Text (uncheck the Calculate Summary Automatically box)

    Excellent thematic and aesthetic organization - please use the Capsule Ordering setup to the right (or something similar) when laying out your Hub—trust us, it will look great when you enter all the content
