Do you ever submit your hubpage manually? Is it worth it?
Especially if you update your hub and get a whole load of backlinks but google hasn't crawled your hub for a long time? I checked some of my hubs using the cache: search on google and some haven't been updated for weeks now.
Not sure if that makes sense.
Anyway, thanks in advance.
I've started pinging my hubs after I finish, usually with pingler.com. There a a couple other pinging services: pingomatic and pingoat. But only use one of these services per hub. And I go back occasionally to tweak or update a hub and if it's been a while since the spider have crawled, I ping again. Of course, after saying all this, I have no idea if it makes a difference, but it doesn't take too long.
I have submitted my HP site to SE's and they do show up on stats under my 'traffic sources'. I wouldn't ignore them at all since it's outsiide traffic that's important. Sprinkle your link around the web. Do it daily and they will add up.
Well it seems like most people just sit back and let their hubs age and wait for them to be crawled be SEs.
I'm wonder why that is when search engines have submission tools to make sure that your hub gets crawled quickly.
There is an old trick known by many but not used by many. You take your plr content from your hard drive and put it on a blogger blog.
The idea is that this is duplicate content but G loves blogger and crawls it often especially when it sees new content no matter what that content is. Get your plr and make a post every hour for the first two days and then every six hours every day after that.
It does not matter what the plr is about. It is all about getting the search bot to come to your blogger blog often, which they will do - they cannot help themselves because they think new content is being added often.
Now in the column put in a links box and put your anchor text keywords to the url's of you hubpage and an rss feed of your profile at the bottom of the page.
Each time the bot comes along, it will look at the links and follow them.
Hence, your pages will be searched and indexed. This is an old trick used by people who use packets from the Warrior Forum and other 150 dollar a month services, which by the way, are now obsolete to get there profiles and web 2.0 pages indexed or crawled.
Don't waste your money with that hyped up crap.
Easy. An old trick that still works well.

I noticed that 98% of my hub organic traffic is from google, why not from other search engines, specifically yahoo search engine and bing?
