    Do Hubpage Questions appear on Search Engine Results, or just internally on Hubpages?

    Should they appear on Search Engines, Should we be worried about the SEO concerns of idle questions?

    Any page that is created on the internet can appear in the search engines, whether they will or not is another thing. There will be so little text in any question on here though so they would never outrank any other pages, unless they are about something totally obscure that nobody searches for anyway. What is an SEO concern of idle questions anyway??

      No, NOT any page created on the internet. There are ways to block IPs and search engines from viewing web pages. For instance, the idle hubs mechanism.

    Yes they do appear in search engine results, and YES you should be concerned about a page that is a question that has no traffic to it, but only if you have monetized your questions and had them transferred to your subdomain.

      Monetized your questions? what? they are not monitized by default? yikes

      didnt even realise transfering them to your subdomain was an option.

      i have some question which have 0 views in 30 days, i'm worried this will lower traffic to my actual hubs

      Your questions are NOT monetized.  There are no ads on this page.  Your questions can be both monetized, and transferred to your subdomain - whether or not you do that is purely up to you.

      CCahill, Maybe you already took care of this in the past 11 hours, but I just stumbled upon this question now and at this moment I see that you do indeed have your questions in your subdomain and you do have it monetized -- There's an ad below.

      I thought they were automatically transfered now? You can't see traffic if they're not on your subdomain. And I can see adverts on this question.

      Wrylit, automatic?  I don't know.  My questions get adverts to the right side....this question, I only see adverts at the very bottom, which I assumed HP put there for themselves.  Guess I don't know.

    They do, although I think only very popular and indeed informative questions/answers should be present in search engine results.
    These Q/As are one of the many reasons why HubPages had to introduce the idle hub status, I wonder when will introduce something to regulate this part of HP as well. I wish they will do soon, as although lots of people hate the changes here, I do have to point out this is only to help us and those hubbers who have real, quality hubs. Finally, hopefully HP will reach its glory again and will be a trusted source of information this way.
