My very first not-so-good hub has never been indexed. I have couple of questions off of it:
1. Is it mostly true that your very first hub(s) may never get indexed?
2. I wrote the first hub without knowing anything about hubpages. My original intention was merely to promote my other websites, and that was how I discovered this community. Since SE's don't even see this hub, I guess this hub is useless in any ways, right?
3. What should I do with this hub? I was already thinking about deleting it. The score has been hovering between 60 and 65.
I don't know if your hub was actually indexed or not, but you could try pinging it to remind google that it is there. Certainly don't delete it - you never know when a hub will take off and yours still could do in the future. Plus if it has links to your own sites the spider bots might still be crawling them and sending more weight to your sites.
Thanks, IzzM, I'll keep it in mind, unless there are other opinions would convince me do it differently otherwise. I actually remember I did manually submit this hub couple of times already, when I did that, I had no idea google would pick up the hubs automatically, thought I'd better submit them all manually
Why not do some work on the Hub to improve it? Expand the text, add some more capsules, look at the tags, keywords etc
Thanks for the advice, but I have done my best to improve and am actually still working on them. The thing is I honestly doubt that getting indexed or not have things to do with a hub's optimization. When I knew nothing about hubpages, my hubs still got in google, when I didn't have any fancy capsules, they still got indexed, sometimes within 1 or 2 hours. Except for my very first hub that is not good anyway, all my hubs get indexed very quickly but those few. That is what I don't understand and one thing for sure is it has nothing to do with a hub's optimization. I've pined these hubs moment ago, not sure if that would help
One more added question: If after I've tried out every suggestions, and my hubs still can't be indexed (for something I may never know), may I delete this hub and re-publish it as a new one? I think for anything new I create, there's a big chance it'd be picked up by google.
I would suggest that you do not delete your hub. You can certainly do a bit of fine tuning by adding pictures, videos etc. One of my hub had got 12 views in 6 months and today its getting 20-25 views every day. So you never no when your most dormant hub turns into a Champion.
That's sure interesting. Thanks for sharing. But was this particular hub of yours left out in the cold by SE so you didn't get real views (assume the 12 views were from your own clicks/modifying process), and somehow later (months later?) SE had it indexed? It is important for me to know exactly what happened. Thanks!

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...

Elsewhere on the forums people are reporting very long delays in getting indexed by Google - the delays seem to be increasing. Obviously this has been caused by the NOINDEX tag added to new hubs when under review and to ZZZ hubs while being reconsidered. Surely this is of concern to HP? As a writer...

I am still pretty new to this, just signed up for Amazon a few days ago and decided to write some sales hubs to see how it goes. One of my better ones in my opinion, google will not index!! It is about Stimulashfusion.It's frustrating because this is my second hub so far that google will not index...

I do not know if this is the right place to post this question, since I do not know if this is a tech or other question, I just know that something is wrong with my latest hub, (written a week ago) in my Google search, it came up in the results, in a totally different -(not mine)- hub, ...
