    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.

    A day  or two and the deleted hub will not appear on your account

      It will vanish from your account, but not from the Google Cache, which means it is still indexed and will be considered duplicate content. This is why the Google URL removal tool is useful to quickly get rid of the cached version too.

    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:

      That's a useful tool.

      Same here, this is definitely the best way to do it.

    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.
