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??
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?
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.
Yes, They do appear on Google. I have seen several questions from hubpages on Google.

Not sure if anyone else has had a similar issue, I published five hubs around the 27th to the 28th of December. All five are featured hubs, however, three of the five do not appear in any search engines I have tried (I...

Hi! So I wrote this hub: Best Fidget Spinner Under $10, and tried to SEO it as much as I knew how to. But it's only on the third page of Google. What can I do to improve it's rank? Thanks in advance!

Why do google search engine results vary from place to place and from different devices?
by Nathan Bernardo4 years ago
When your article/page is on the first page of search engine results, it's good. Probably you'll get a lot of traffic. What if your work ends up on the second page? Do you still get a lot of traffic? What about 3rd page?
