    Any users on BHW ever used Academia before ? Two days ago I created a couple documents and uploaded them I have ping them run them through indexers submitted them to Google but they still are not getting indexed by Google, any idea why this might be ? I have seen a few people in the last year mention they were having trouble getting them indexed, but then there are others saying theirs gets indexed in a couple hours.

    Sorry for stating the obvious but were the documents actually unique content or copied from elsewhere/badly spun?

    In my experience they don't index that easily. You may want to build some backlinks to help it index.

    Academia is notorious for indexing badly. Many 2.0 platforms are.

    Best bet, in my experience, is to build some back links to them. Social Bookmarks, a couple blog comments, and a little time normally does the trick.

    Yes :) I agreed.
    One year prior,I guess it accepts blog posting with URL which indexed fast because it is great website but then it stopped and now you can add paper which is no longer effective.

    are you saying by default Academia pages have disallow in them ? That would be news to me. I think I checked for a noindex in one of the pages before.

    Remember Google's bot schedules its crawling with certain sites. For example, it's been documented that it visits public library sites once a month due to the fact they rarely change their content. Could be the same with acedemia, but in my experience most Web 2.0s don't get indexed or they take a long time. I think its the primary way Google is trying to cut back their effectiveness.

    Been having the same issue lately -- perhaps they realized they were getting spammed or something. I have had some links there (pdf) and profile links for about 2-3 weeks now and they're still not indexed. I've built social links, links from other EDU platforms (which have been indexed), a wordpress blog, and sent them through a few indexers.

    I have backlinks from them. Didn't check how long it took exactly (I just use the doc sharing so it's my PDF article with links in it) but it was last month or two probably so they do get indexed.

    Would suggest you create a few more backlinks, 1 article will speed things up, but how long till the article gets indexed? :D
