It has been suggested that we verify ownership of our subdomain with Google Webmaster Tools http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/How- … ster-Tools so that we have more insight into how Google sees our 'sites'.
I think it would be helpful to have a subcategory in the HubPages Knowledge Forum specifically for Google Webmaster Tools in relation to our subdomains. I know I myself don't understand what everything means while looking at the page.
that would work for me, I don't understand it all myself. I started to follow WriteAngled's(?) and others' directions and had to stop one night because I got stuck on one of the steps. I really haven't had time to sit and read through everything.
I think it would be helpful. I'm not sure what you're referring to, I'm referring to our account on Google Webmaster Tools. Even though I've read some of the blog posts and videos, I would like to understand more how to read the statistics on the dashboard in relation to our subdomains. Crawl errors and the crawl stats graphs.. I don't know what's good and what's not.
That would be really helpful...a sub category would ensure that these threads do not get lost among the others.. Great suggestion.. I could do with more help too..
I know this was suggested a year ago, but we're getting to it in our queue now. Better late than never, right?
The new category has been set up:
HubPages Tutorials and Community → Hub Statistics and Metrics → Using Google Webmaster Tools
(it might take a few hours for the cache to clear and for this to appear on the site)
An additional reminder that we have a Learning Center entry as well:
Linking Your Subdomain in Google Webmaster Tools
OH nice! I didn't see this when you responded. I was just checking my profile page in the Forums category.

When I first signed up with GA I used hubpages.com Later I added my subdomain address. However, my account is set up with property name hubpages.com and default URL my subdomain. I believe this is incorrect. Thus Webmaster Tools are saying that my sites are not verified. What do I need to do?...

Hi Hubbers,After hours of exhaustive searches through webpages and attempting the steps on various HubPage articles that say how to add a HubPages sitemap to no avail, I finally found a service that hosts sitemaps, automatically submits it to Google Webmaster Tools, and updates it regularly....

Is Google Webmaster useful for promoting Hubpages?I understand there are so many useful features in Google webmaster. But, on the first look, it's a little daunting. Are there any quick wins to promote Hubpages using Google Webmaster Tools?

This hub has already generated a few organic links and tweets but it's no where to be found on Google. Was it not indexed?http://thunderkeys.hubpages.com/hub/Def … hip-Series

The Google Webmaster Tools provides a page rank number for pages that they have listed for you. Are these true numbers. If they say Page 2 for a particular hub, does that mean it is on Page 2 of Google search.
