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.
Thanks. Boy, did I ever pick a bad week to join Hub pages.
LOL.Hopefully everything settles...I would say you cans still get indexed fairly quickly, just not high of a rank
lol, come on in and enjoy. It may take a while longer right now, but this week is as good as any to join, especially with your tax related topics.
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 + hubpages.com 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!

How long does it take for a hub to reach the search engines once it is published?People talk about aged hubs, etc. what about new hubs, published, etc. how long do they take to be found in search engine searches....

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks. New pages do not get indexed for days or weeks. This causes lost traffic and lost...

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...

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!!??

I'm relatively new to hubpages so throwing off a few questions that I have on my mind. Once a article is published and featured how long does it take for it to end up on search engines? Thanks, George

I have been creating back links to my hubs. I've been with Hubpages two weeks and have written 8 hubs. When I do a Google "site:hubpages......." search it is only showing one of my hubs. Any opinions on how long it usually takes Google to index a hub, or suggestions on back links that...
