Just my personal rant for the day.
Been 10 days for a hub and still waiting.
Been over a month for a website article and still waiting.
Fortunately, throwing "how to submit a url to google" at them apparently solves the problem.
Got any related tips? Throw them here.
I always manually submit my URL's to Google. I don't wait for them. It definitely seems to help. Also, I've been getting some good traffic from Pinterest lately. I take advantage of adding relevant tags to the description box when I pin an article.
Hey, folks. I seldom drop by https://hubpages.com/my/hubs/traffic-sources , but I just noticed Bing and Yahoo aren't ignoring us nearly as much as they used to. Can't help but wonder if MVEN had anything to do with that.
I just assume when it takes longer for me to see traffic from Google than usual, it must be because I'm declining in ability. I've never been so vain as to search Google for my new article - No wait, It isn't that I'm not vain, it's that I fear rejection.
Who you callin´ vain, Willis?
I just checked the hub I published about a week ago and found out that it is indexed and already the featured snippet. (No, PDS, I am not going to complain about that!)
I used the Google "submit your article" feature since when I checked after a few days it was still not visible on my search.
I am proud to say Google has never rejected me. They just put me on page 100.
Update on my featured snippet: Still zero traffic from Google. Do I sense a pattern here, PDS?

I am new here and have posted 11 hubs.But, google hasn't indexed any of them. I even submitted the URL's to gogole, but still nothing. My main page is on google, but I don't really think anyone is googling my name. Any advice?

Hubbers, I'm sorry that we can't tell you why your traffic is going down or why Google was showing Hubs on hubpages.com and now has reverted to showing them on the subdomain. We are similarly frustrated. We do know Google announced a panda update last week. We also can see Hubs...

I’ve had a hub scraped by 2 different sites in the time between when a hub goes out of ‘pending’ into ‘featured’ and when google indexes that hub. The copies are ranking above me for a couple of terms – the scraped articles were indexed 18 hours before mine was [EDIT: I've just...

I have had a real drop in views over the past few weeks, and as others have too, I just presumed it was Google panda or the usual drop we often get. But I decided to check in google search, and something strange has happened. I can't find many of my hubs. I have only checked a few so far but they...

There appears to be some changes with the "problem" with google indexing some hubs under our domains and others through hubpages.com."suddenly" webmaster tools are showing that my pages are now indexed under my subdomain rather than through hubpages.com. A search for "site:...

Hi folks. So I finally opened another account, wrote an article and it is featured on a niche site...Yay! My question has to do with the fact that apparently you can no longer submit your URL to Google. I guess people wanting to submit URL's now have to go through some "fetch" process....
