Question about Google traffic time frames...
I read from seasoned hubbers that it could take 6 months to over a year for Google to start pinging on hubs in the search engines. Can someone explain to me why this is? Thanks!
It can take 6 - 12 months to develop traffic especially substantial on a search engine - Google, Bing, and etc. I am not sure what is meant by pinging.
Google will index the Hub quickly and it will be available for search even if just a title search. Ranking is a variable and will change based upon many factors, (Recommended is researching SEO principals and techniques) yet initially occurs relatively fast. However, as a variable that is why it may take 6 - 12 months to gain noticeable traffic from the search engine. Perhaps I have it wrong and someone can correct as need be.
Thank you for answering tsmog. Yes, "pinging" was an odd word for me to choose. Basically, I just meant why does it take that long of a time for Google to pick up on hubs. You answered my question pretty well. The ranking part is what takes time.....

How is it that a hub on the 'common mistakes new hubbers make' can suddenly become not featured, in spite of the fact it has had 9 views in a day, 24 views in 7 days and 35 views in the last 30 days? I only replied to comments on it both 42 hours ago and 22 hours ago (from two different hubbers)....

While I was in the forums, i saw a lot of hubbers complain about the effect of the Google Panda on their traffic and earnings. Some even so disappointed that they were thinking about quitting hubpages. I was wondering that Google is not the only search engine in the market. Google has strong...
