Why did my hubs disappear from google search?
More than 5 of my hubs were appearing on the first page of google search till last week of September. But now only one appears. My traffic has reduced dramatically. What should I d to overcome this?.
you should keep writing hubs in order to get indexed by google. For example you wrote about heart attacks and then you have to write another hub relating to heart or something like that and apply inter links.
You will see in your hub statistics that those three hubs which are disappeared from google are showing with not featured sign
Alll those hubs are still featured and have 80+ hubscore
Those hubs were ranking good in google search till the end of last month
Google rolled out the new Penguin 3.0 updates and SEOs are getting hit left and right with dropped rankings and penalties so you can wait for a while to see if they are indexed back
As I can see you have 71 indexed pages in google on your hubpages account so it seems good - probably all the hubs indexed.
Their position drop is up to google and its algo changes. You can't do a lot because if google reduces the value of hubpages all of us will suffer, not only you.
The point is that hubpages is one kind of content farm and google does not like it a lot. Still it is the best website of that kind. And that's the reason why hubpages ask you to write 1250+ words, 3 images, 2 videoes, summary etc... If hubpages succeeds in maintaining and improving quality of hubs and do not allow low quality hubs traffic will improve by time.
So in general - you depend on hubpages general strength in google, its not up to you.
What you can do is to promote your hubpage profile and build links for it and your hubs, share it on social media etc... Its only the question if it is worth to do for hubpages account or to do that on your own site.
Also, you can edit your hubs to optimize them better for keywords although it is less and less relevant for google as semantic search is on the way.
I hope I helped a bit

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

I just did a Hub and looked and it was listed in Google within minutes of being published!I know this happens, but I have seen Hubs take hours, weeks and days to get listed.I did something different, and I will try to duplicate it. IF it works, I'll let everyone know the technique I used.I know it...

In the past few days my traffic had dropped to 1/3 of what it was. Most of it lost from Google. Besides the latest Panda update, which helped some and hurt others, I am wondering if a change that HubPages just made had had a negative effect...Ten of my hubs that were idle (not featured) have...

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...
