How long does it take for Google to de-index a hub?

    I recently unpublished several hubs in a series that I intend to move to my blog.  It's been almost seven days since I did this, but the hubs are still showing on the first page of Google search results.  When am I safe to move the material to my blog and to avoid any duplicate content issues?

    You may want to "ping" your Hubs that are no removed so that the search engines go rescan and learn the content is down.  Otherwise you are left to waiting until whenever the spiders happen to crawl and notice your changes.
