    How do I find out if a Hub is indexed by search engines?

    I've noticed other Hubbers mentioning that they check to see if their hubs are indexed by the search engines like Google. How do I do this? Sorry if the answer is painfully obvious, I'm just not very savvy when it comes to this stuff! Thanks smile

    I am also not very expert in this field. Well, what I do is I write down the title of my hub in Google search box and search it. If it has got indexed by Google then it's quite obvious that the results shown by Google will also contain my hub.
    Suppose their is any other method then it is not known to me either.

    You can check it on google search as I do. When your hub will be published and then it become indexed by major search engines like google, Bing, yahoo etc Also if you give your comments to others they also indexed by search engines.

    I put the full URL of the hub into Google search to check. It's a very fast way to find if a hub is indexed because each URL is unique. You'll get a "did not match any documents" response if it hasn't been picked up yet.

    I'm not an expert on the subject either but if you submit your url to Google your hub will be indexed. Simply enter 'Google submit url' and you'll be taken to the right place. Al you have to do then is copy and paste the url and it should..... will enter the system!

    I normally use this way "site:username.hubpages.com/your-topic" (without quote). Second if your hub is not indexing try to ping your hub through bulkping.com .. my one hub was indexed after 6 days.. so normally you have wait 1 week but my other hubs indexed within 1-2 days.. so it all depends on google and other search engines..
