In the past week or so I have published a few hubs on a certain subject. They made it onto google and started picking up some organic traffic. The last few days they have had no traffic though. So I checked how they were doing on Google. Out of the five hubs only two are there. So where have the other hubs gone? I thought when a hub got listen on Google it kinda stayed there. Is this wrong, can they un-index it? What would there reason for this be?
Ok now I'm really upset. All 5 of my articles have vanished from Google. What is going on??
They'll reappear, don't worry. They usually get a little love when newly published. Keep writing, it's not a sign that spells impending doom.
When they show up again leave them be a bit, see how they do as is. If you want them better placed, add a bit more text (a [i]bit[i] is enough), you can interlink them with like-minded hubs you may have, add a few back-links to support them.
They are already interlinked, this 5 new hubs were all in a new niche I was giving a try. So for all 5 of them to vanish seems weird. Must admit I am panicking a little bit, haha.
When articles are first published, they get a bump from Google. Then, after a few days, they are pretty much on their own, while the author hopes they are starting to get some organic traffic. Or the author can find some ways to publicize the articles to help them get noticed.
There are numerous forum threads about this. Do a little research, and you will see that you are not the only one this has happened to. Welcome to the wonderful world of online writing!

First of all, I'm not sure if having a large number of followers is even important in the grand scheme of blogging...so perhaps that is the best place to start with this discussion.

I can't remember what happened with previous hubs, but is this normal?

Here's something for you guys to consider, and I am simply reiterating a comment I made on another post. You need organic traffic to your Hubs! Why? If you are using adsense, or any other monetization method on Hubpages, you will not, I repeat, you will NOT get credit for clicks on your ads from...

Well, I have finally reached a point at which I'm actually seeing payments from the HP ad program. However, I see my income inching up by a penny or so a day...and it fluctuates...sometimes is less.I've read and read about SEO, promoting, etc...and it seems to me, this only works well if you...

Many people have asked how the new sites are performing so far. The latest Newsletter provides a general overview, but I'd also like to invite Hubbers who have had Hubs moved to discuss your experiences here. Overall, the change has been very positive, but there's also variation from author to...
