How long does it take for google to index an article?
Even though an article I published over the weekend is featured and has been crawled, I can't find it anywhere in the search, even if I take text directly from the article and put it in search.
Check for any issue like broken links. Use Title tuner also.I think by now it must have been indexed. Day end process at HP and Google may be having time gaps.
This is what I would have thought to0. I spent a lot of time researching and putting it together--using all the stellar hub guidelines. I don't expect it to be high up yet but I would expect that google would know it exists since it has been crawled.
It usually takes a week for my hub to get indexed. So check after a day or two, you will hopefully find it to be indexed.
I have had the same problem. Did you try putting the URL in the search box on Google? Usually, it will show up if it has been indexed and the snippet will show when it was recognized by Google. You can also submit the URL to Webmaster Tools and have it crawl the URL manually. Good luck.--Deb
Yes, I did try putting the URL into google and it still didn't know what it was. I edited a couple of things. I'll give it a couple more days and then check.
I just copied URL of your last article on "Water Restrictions" and placed it in the SEARCH area on Google.com page. Your article came up that it was crawled 12 hours ago (today 3/13). It's out there as far as I can see.--Deb
Yes, it is there thanks to your great advice. :-)
It will depends on your niche, and when Google finds your Hub it could take a few days to a few weeks. Some of my articles were indexed in a few days, some not for a few weeks. If you back link your Hubs it should speed up the process though.
Also even if Google Crawled the Hub it could be a few pages or more past the first page. Where was it featured? if it was featured on Hubpages does not mean it will rank high in Google it depends on how much competition there is for the topic of your Hub.

New hubber here! (Well, sorta new. Started an account years ago and just checked back in.) Still trying to grasp the whole SEO thing and I'm wondering how long it takes to get a hub indexed and how to tell if you have been? Also, are articles on the niche sites more "findable" on google...

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.

I'm relatively new to hubpages so throwing off a few questions that I have on my mind. Once a article is published and featured how long does it take for it to end up on search engines? Thanks, George
