I am having trouble understanding the mechanics of re-publishing one of my Hubs after updating it. This particular writing is already published, so after I push the 'done editing' button at the top of the page, I don't have a 'publish now' button, instead, I see a 'unpublish now' button.
Do I push 'unpublish now' twice, so I can again 'publish' the thing in order to let the staff know that it's been revamped? Or does the site 'know' somehow?
I asked another Hubber about this some time ago, and she wrote that after fixing the Hub, I should hit 'publish now' again. Is it just me who doesn't have that option?
I hope this makes sense!
Are you sure it was unpublished? Are you sure it wasn't just unfeatured?
I guess I'm not communicating this very well, WL! No, it's already published, has been for months. The reason I worked on it is that it has recently been unfeatured-my only unfeatured Hub.
Let me try to say this another way...I edited this Hub today, pressed the 'done editing' button and was wondering-in edit mode still-why don't I have a 'publish now' button?
How does HP 'know' I've been actively trying to improve it if I only have a 'unpublish now' button?
I'm sorry if I can't be more accurate in my wording, but at the moment I can't figure out another way!
With unfeatured hubs, they're still published. They can still be seen by other users. They just can't be crawled by search engines.
Every time you edit an unfeatured hub, it goes back through the QAP process for reevaluation
if your hub had been published and now you are editing it, hit the done editing button

I'm not asking about why hubs get featured or un-featured. I kind of know that.The issue is: I just did a category search in my hubs, and found that, out of 292 published hubs, 149 are unfeatured due to low...

I have only ever had one featured hub before but when I checked my account today I was shocked to find I have 13 in featured hubs due to low engagement. This is proof that traffic has fallen greatly. It's not just my...

I added some links to my other related hubs into this hub today which was featured before. Now I can't see most of the content when I access the hub and of course the Featured icon is gone....
