All of my hubs were normally getting indexed in Google within a day. Since January 30th I have hubs that are 3 and 4 days old that still aren't listed. I have a hub that I published on Jan 30th finally get listed yesterday. Is this happening to other people?
I think Keywords play a massive role in this, make sure you only use high traffic keywords and generally the more you use them the quicker you will achieve ranking. However you do not want your article to sound spammy so be creative.
Also I believe along with other people that tweeting or pinging your hub immediately after publishing helps. Remember that you might not achieve high ranking at first because of competition.
Ritchie, I think that you are spot on about this. My hubs that I wrote targeting low traffic keywords to get listed high on the first page are getting listed at a snails pace right now. The hub I wrote that I published about 45 minutes ago right before I started this thread is already listed in which I was targeting a high traffic keyword phrase. Very interesting.
I'm not sure if crawler is taking less turns for hubpages due to algorithm change. But if the new change is implemented slowly then crawler is supposed to crawl high PR sites much quickly than the scraper ones.
