    Some of my lesser hubs appear to no longer be on Google.  I've searched the exact titles and even added "hubpages" and/or my username.  I’m planning on renovating and adding to them but wonder what I need to do to get them indexed on Google again.  Do I need to submit them, or is there some other process?  Since they were once indexed but no longer are, I'm guessing that the Google crawlers won't pick them up at this point.

      Hey WE, do you think it'd be worth while resubmitting the 100s of hubs I have that have all but disappeared from the Google search?

        Possibly. I suggest you read from here: … p;cbrank=2

    First you need to find out if it is indexed or not.  Searching for the title won't tell you a hub is not indexed; it may just be too far down in the SERPs to show up.

    Search for the URL, by copy/paste.  It should come up number 1 (although I have seen rare cases where it is down one or two places).

    If it does not show up by searching for the exact URL it is not indexed.  If it does, it is indexed, just very far down.

    Okay, I used to search by the hub title.  That worked when my hubs were highly ranked, before the October Panda updates.  Now, I see that it doesn't work.  Google recommends searching for your site by typing:  (to search for Google, for example)

    When I do this, I see each of my sites.  Obviously I've fallen into the depths of Google.  I guess it's time to update and repair some of my highly underperforming hubs.

    To find out if google has indexed your hub you can use this search:


    for example


    It will show you a cached version of the page plus when it was indexed last.

      That is something I have seen earlier but never really understood or learned to use.. Thanks for making that sound simple and practical.
