How long is it before Google is updated after I edit an existing hub? I've been trying different titles and keywords to see if they get better placement, but the original version is still what Google has.
I have seen it take as long as a month. However, that might only be true for my older hubs that google has already decided to permanently hate.
Thanks. I thought it might be more often. I'll have to find another way to test keywords and titles.
These days Google indexing takes longer time than what was in the past.
The length of time it takes Google to index a page is dependent on a lot of things, including how often a site is updated, how long visitors interact with a page, how many links are pointing to a page and PageRank are just a few. HP is a great example of this where pages are indexed normally within hours of being published. Personally I have noticed no slowdown in indexing from Google.
