I am new to this. I am just wondering why I could find my hub on google the first couple days I posted my new Hub, and now I can't even find them with quotes? Any advice?
There are literally billions of web pages out there and google can't index them all. Having them on hubpages increases the chance of google seeing them and indexing them but not all of them will be.
Your wine hub is indexed, your other one is not.
Give it time, it can take days, weeks or months for your hubs to see their best traffic.
Great, thanks for your reply. How can you tell if they are indexed or not?
Goto google and copy and paste the exact URL of the page into the search bar. If your exact hub comes up in the list of results, it's been indexed.
Some hubs get de-indexed and re-indexed at different times depending on their topic and maturity. For instance a low traffic halloween hub may get de-indexed at different times of year.
type this into Google - site: - followed immediately by the exact URL of your hubpages
If it doesn't show up in google, then get some links. Twitter, and facebook are good ways to get some backlinks.
I know it has been a few weeks since you first posted the question but just wondering if the answers had helped. Don't let it get disheartening, it can be hard to keep some of your hubs at the top depending on how good your keywords are and the competition. I know when I have been working online for a couple of years and I am still learning about keeping pages at the top. Are you searching for your keywords or the title of your hubs?
If your hubs have that much quality, then it'll show in google.Sometimes it depends on choosing keywords properly.You can use AdWord for that.

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...

I now have 11 hubs that are not indexed by google - nothing published since July 12 (the last one was published on the 9th and indexed yesterday). Normally I've seen then set up with 24 hours, occasionally in 48, but now it's 8 days and not done!!??

New hubber here! (Well, sorta new. Started an account years ago and just checked back in.) Still trying to grasp the whole SEO thing and I'm wondering how long it takes to get a hub indexed and how to tell if you have been? Also, are articles on the niche sites more "findable" on google...
