Does un-publishing a hub loose its search engine position?
If I were to un-publish a hub with the intent of re-writing, will it resume it's position in the search engines etc when re-published it again under the same title? Or should I just edit it instead?
Google has spiders who crawl the internet to rebuild their search index on a regular basis. As soon as they go to crawl your hub and find it not there, it will be removed from their index. This keeps the searches current and ensures that you don't get a bunch of dead links in your searches. If you unpublish and republish before their spiders notice, then you would not lose your page rank, but that would be fraught with danger as no-one outside of Google knows when their spiders will crawl your page.
Robbie is right but it depends on time if you are going to update your hub's content and you'll re-publish your hub within one or two days then that's OK no need to worry about anything but if it'll take a long time like four or five days then Google may remove your hub from search results but if your hub is really ranking well then I advise you to update your content within one or two hours and you no need to reedit your title as it'll rank well in same one.

I have checked a few of my articles over the course of a week, not all of them but most of the popular ones, and I noticed that when I put them in Google search they only show up through another link such as Pinterest or Twitter. They seem to have totally disappeared apart from that. Any help you...

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 tried Google and Bing). This is unusual as I have not had any other featured hub...

Two of my best hubs have been going down in traffic over the past few months. I'm an SEO writer, and one of these two hubs of mine is on an SEO topic. I'd noticed that this hub had completely lost ALL rankings in Google. It had done very well in the past, and I couldn't think of anything that I'd...

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?
