    I did a hub about 24 hours ago with keywords on a topic that yields only four or five pertinent search results on Google. Today, I am not finding my hub when I enter the search terms. Does it take longer than a day for things to show up?

      Given the current algorithm state, it might never show up.

      I have had articles appear within minutes, literally.  Others take longer.

          LOL.Hopefully everything settles...I would say you cans still get indexed fairly quickly, just not high of a rank

    Sometimes mine take a few hours, not sure how many but definitely less than 24. Just check and see if your page is up by tomorrow.
    I remembered I panicked once thinking that my article was not going to show on google...

    you could alert them yourself by going to addurl google and entering the hub. or create and submit rss feed.

    Before update I have had hubs indexed after 13 minutes on page 1 of Google.

    After update latest hub was indexed within an hour but buried deep. Probably because the topic, Content Farms, is highly competitive right now.

    To see if your hub is indexed Google keywords + TaxNerd OR keywords + OR exact URL.

    I've found that mine vary from within an hour right upto weeks and weeks.  Two Hubs I published three weeks ago still havn't appeared on Google!  I must have done about 15 since and they all appeared with 24 hours.  So it seems to be pretty random.  I'm just hoping my two hubs havn't been lost forever!
