When you delete a hub, how long does it take before it disappears from Google search?
I have deleted a hub by request. I have re-written this hub in a completely different manner, yet I am unable to publish it due to it having "duplicate" content. I've researched this and the only thing close to my latest hub is the hub I deleted. It shows up on a Google search, but is inaccessible.
You have to wait some days as the copy of your hub will be still there, even though you deleted it. Usually it takes 7-10 days(what i noticied in my case and somtimes it is quicker too). One more way i know is (read from an article) that you can remove things from google search by using the 'Google’s URL Removal Tool'. (Please visit Webmaster Tools home page for details- Learn more- Remove content from Google's search results). Hope this helps, good luck.
When you unpublish or delete an article, it takes around 3-4 days to disappear from the search engine.
I deleted a Squidoo article once and it took close to two weeks. When I could no longer find it in Google searches, I put it on Hubpages and didn't have any problems publishing it.
I always use the Google URL removal tool as it only takes 24 hours then. Waiting for Google to de-index an article can take weeks in many cases, so to speed up the process to 24 hours is well worth doing. The link you need is:

My experience is that it takes about three days. It has taken up to seven days in one case.
Unless you use the Google removal tool, a copy of the original will be around for weeks, it will just drop down in the Google page rank. I've had trouble with that too. I hope it works out, but definitely use the tool so you can put your work back up faster. Best wishes.

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.
