    I am trying to figure out why my Hubs are not able to be found in google searches. Well, any searches to be exact. I have, what I think to be, good tags, but do not understand why I have no keywords. How do I fix this problem? I am extremely new to this so I am still working out the kinks. Any help with this subject would be GREATLY appreciated

    Have patience. It will take you at least 6 months to be noticed by SE.

    In the meanwhile, keep hubbing. smile

    Best Regards

    They seemed to have been indexed by Google to me? What keywords are you focussing on? The hub on twins that I looked at had only some very vague tags - one of the tags is the word 'annoying'

    If you were looking for an article on twins would you search just on the word annoying?

    Have a look at the Google keyword tool and see what keywords and keyword combinations are bringing in the highest volumes of traffic around your subject and also what competition they are getting.

    Also look to do some backlinking - there are many excellent hubs on backlinking, keywords, SEO etc right here on HubPages

    What has really helped me is thinking about what I would type into a search engine myself if I were looking for information about that topic.  And CM is right, don't use vague tags, but for twins it would probably be multiple births, mother of twins, etc.  I've been here less than six months and the search engines are finding me, so it really doesn't always take six months! smile  Use the Google keyword tool to help you.

    Thank you all for the advice. Like I said, I am so new to this and was unsure as to what I was doing wrong. I will take a look at my tags and start from there. My main concern was not being recognized by search engines. Once again, I really appreciate the helpful words. Have a wonderful day!

    I thought hubs got indexed within 24 hours?  Am I missing something with this six month thing?

      Mark it really depends on the hub. For instance if you write a 150 word hub on acai berries, Google may crawl it and decide that it's a low quality article in a highly saturated topic. In that case it may not index it. Usually being indexed is a sign that Google thinks it's worthwhile enough to keep an eye on and maybe eventually send traffic to.

      Google also indexes and then de-indexes hubs sometimes. There are literally billions of pages online and Google only indexes a small percentage of them.
