What would cause one of my hubs to not be found by Google?
One of my hubs is sending a 404 error to Google according to Google's webmaster tools. Therefore the hub is not indexed by Google. What would cause this? How do I fix this?
That happened to me before, and there were a couple of things I tried which helped, but first consider if it might be something not worth troubling over- it could be that the URL it tried to index was already indexed, or it was an unpublished hub, or a bug on your page, or something of that nature.
Sometimes, that problem will go away without you having to do anything, programs have hiccups, and google bots are no different.
Another solution to try would be to resubmit your sitemap, under sitemaps on your dashboard.
And another, if you can determine which hub isn't being indexed, is to submit an RSS feed which includes the missing hub, and that often helps.
Good luck, and let us know what happens.
Honestly that is a great question. I would love to know when you do find out. I do know it sometimes takes a little while to index videos. But content should show up a great deal quicker. I don't know google's algorithm so I don't know.
But the answer I'm certain is essential

I did a little experiment with opting into the EC program for three months. To begin with,last year one of my better performing hubs become Editor's Choice. That hub was getting an average of 20o+ views per day, peak. The day after being selected as EC, the views dropped to zero. I watched it for a...

I haven't had a new hub indexed by Google since 09/24/09. 10 hubs since then are not in Google at all. Is anyone else seeing a problem like this? Is anyone else checking their hubs to see if they are indexed?

Hi, I am new to HubPages, but I've noticed some of my hubs are indexed on Google and some are not. One of the earliest ones I posted (over 4 days ago) has a little 'traffic falling' arrow next to it. I tried to search for it on Google, and despite it having the 'featured' symbol next to it on my...
