How long does it take for a hub to reach the search engines once it is published?
People talk about aged hubs, etc. what about new hubs, published, etc. how long do they take to be found in search engine searches....
Within a few hours to a week.
Just making my answer longer
I'm not sure what the norm is, but I published a hub last Monday about Legos for girls, and noticed the that it in less than 24 hours it was getting traffic from Google.
I took a look for myself and not only was it already indexed by Google in less than a day, but it was 6th on the first page. I just checked again and it is still there if you search for "lego girls controversy."
Additionally, I made some changes to the hub, and submitted the url through Google webmaster tools and the new version (changed summary) was also updated in less than 24 hours.
So, it can happen fast.
At times my new hub would appear in the search engine result page in less than 24hrs and mostly google but some of them will no more be there if I check back like 7 days after being published. But still come up in less than a month.
I've had some hubs indexed in Google within hours and others took several days. I'm really not sure what the timing is based on. Of course, getting indexed in the other search engines takes longer - at least in my experience.
Mine usually take around 24-48 hours in general. Hope that helps
Thank you all for answering!!! Mine finally showed up just about 24 hours after publishing... it landed page 1, spot 5 on its first day. I think the power behind hubpages has a great deal to do with this.
I don't think you need an answer anymore, but i want to add something. HubPages is a pretty savvy entity, whoever or whatever it is. They know how to sling words at the search engine, and I don't think they play much politics. They let a lot of crazy stuff and dumb mistakes go by without much bother. I think the interactive, mufti-media magazine format will give passive media a run for its money. I am just learning how to work it into my own business, and am impressed with what I see others doing.
I haven't made much money, yet, but I see how it can be done. It can also be used for local opportunities that aren't discussed in the forums. Each individual can customize it for their purpose. What up? It's free, and you will still see your work on page 1. Be careful what you say.
It depends. I believe the word you were looking for is "indexed."
I read a long time ago that Google indexed Digg.com every single hour...I'm not sure that that's true, but it's why I joined Digg, and used to submit my hubs there immediately after hitting "publish."
I published a Hub four hours ago. I just keyed the exact title of the article into a Google search. My Hub was listed in sixth place on the first page of the search results.
Within a few hours to get crawled, but once the hub is "aged" and Google sees it as important or stable then it starts getting more traffic.
It takes only few minutes to get indexed by search engines.
If you have inbound links to your Hub, Google is likely to find it and index it more quickly. How about linking to it on your own website (if you have one)?
It depends on your tags. If you pick a good number of tags that apply to your article, the article is 'found' as soon as one of your tags matches the search word!
I find they're indexed and in google same day, but I make any changes, they can take up to a couple of weeks to show. Annoying as I often publish then realise how I could improve the title soon after.

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

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'm relatively new to hubpages so throwing off a few questions that I have on my mind. Once a article is published and featured how long does it take for it to end up on search engines? Thanks, George

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks. New pages do not get indexed for days or weeks. This causes lost traffic and lost...

How do I find out if a Hub is indexed by search engines?I've noticed other Hubbers mentioning that they check to see if their hubs are indexed by the search engines like Google. How do I do this? Sorry if the answer is painfully obvious, I'm just not very savvy when it comes to this stuff! Thanks
