Pubsubhubbub is a real time instant pinging protocol, which updates feeds and search engines the instant you publish. (I checked the source code on my hubs and couldn't see it - apologies if I've missed it and you've already incorporated it).
Here's some info on it (check out the slide show at the bottom of article):
http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/re … lained.php
Here's the Google wiki on it with a lot more detail:
The following wiki entry says Google is in the process of incorporating it on blogger:
http://code.google.com/p/pubsubhubbub/w … ubAtGoogle
It's nice and all for G to be so pro-active with their own products - but the issue with Blogger having pubsubhubbub and hubpages not having it, is that if a scraper pulls info from hubpages and publishes (and instantly pings via pubsubhubbub) while poor old hubpages is pinging the old method - chances are high that the blogspot scraper will be classed as an originator as G found their material first.
Would be grateful if you could look into it as it could help with scraper issues.
Is one of the features of Hubbub that it pings search engines? Is there any documentation suggesting that Google will use this information over its usual spidering because the latter is slower? Google currently crawls HubPages constantly.
From what I gather, it's more geared for web services that are grabbing information from a page that is constantly updating. Since most Hubbers are not constantly editing their Hubs with new information, it seems like this might be of limited utility.
Yes it does ping search engines - remember that google blog search is based on RSS feeds, and when we publish hubs and ping, they pull the feed.
Here's some more incentive for you to do this: Matt Cutts recommends it:
http://www.labnol.org/internet/fat-ping … ers/20400/
Unfortunately hubpages doesn't have it enabled - which means if a scraper gets content and fat pings it before the normal crawler comes to Hubpages, they are the originator.
Pubsubhubbub? I thought this was a joke, sounds like a pub crawl to me!
I thought it was a joke too and I just had to look.
sounds like a tongue twister. see if you can say it multiple times fast.
