Just curious to find out if my hub has been indexed by Google. It was created over 2 weeks ago..Any suggestions would be appreciated.
If you do a search on Google with the title of your Hub in quotation marks, you'll see that it has been indexed. If you take away the quotation marks, you'll see your "competition" for attention on Google (at the moment, your Hub is not on the first page of results).
Do a Google search with this format:
url = http://hubpages.com/hub/my-hub
(Don't click this link. It is going nowhere. it is just an example)
When you create a hub, you are asked to give a web address.
You can use this format for other major search engines too. Google indexes hubs very quick. My hub was index in less than 12 hour. If your hub does not have any serious problems, such as duplicated content, your hub should have been indexed long time ago. But that does not mean too much. If the search result for your major keywords ranks low, you get little or none traffic from SEs. Go to your hub page and click VIEW STATS button, you will see where your traffic comes from.
If you are having trouble getting a hub indexed by Google try what I did. I published my first hub at 10pm, did a digg on the hub and by 7am the next morning the hub had been indexed and the digg was #1 on Google for my keyword.

Hi, I am new to HubPages, but I've noticed some of my hubs are indexed on Google and some are not. One of the earliest ones I posted (over 4 days ago) has a little 'traffic falling' arrow next to it. I tried to search for it on Google, and despite it having the 'featured' symbol next to it on my...

Having just started to look at webmaster tools this may be in the wrong section and it may be just my complete lack of understanding but;Google webmasters tools and the "index status" tab should return a graph according to their description that should continue to grow as pages are...

I have been creating back links to my hubs. I've been with Hubpages two weeks and have written 8 hubs. When I do a Google "site:hubpages......." search it is only showing one of my hubs. Any opinions on how long it usually takes Google to index a hub, or suggestions on back links that...

I seem to be having some real trouble with getting some hubs indexed, and don't understand why. Out of 75 hubs, 13 are now not indexed, dating back to 5-24. I realize that hubs will index and de-index, but it seems to have gone too far. I changed titles on several hubs the first...

Why has Google not indexed my hub, although Bing and Yahoo have?My hub on Acid Attacks on Women is 8 days old and I pinged it after publishing it. It still does not appear to be indexed in Google, but it does show up on Bing and Yahoo searches. Google does have all of my other hubs. What's up?
