Hub Published Instantly?

    I recently started writing on a new account. I have lost a lot of motivation and have been kind of down in some aspects of my life. But I digress..

    I thought it took up to 24 hours for a hub to get published because of Quality Assessment? I checked and it appears a Hub I wrote is already published. How is this possible? Unless it is not actually published and I thought it was.

      It's been taking about 3 hours from the time I publish a new Hub until it is featured.  I think some of it depends upon the time of day it is published and which MTurkers are working in your time zone.

        MTurkers?

          MTurk is short for "Amazon Mechanical Turk" and that is the service HubPages has hired to review the content of Hubs before they are featured.  It is my understanding that some of the raters are from the U.S. and some are from India.

            Rating Hubpages articles through MTurk requires the worker to be located within the US.

              Who is rating Hubs at 2:00 a.m. California time (within three hours of publishing)?

                Who knows, but they'll definitely be in the US.

      I've only been a hubber since March, but have noticed my hubs are getting featured faster as well.

    Hubs are published immediately, the question is whether it is indexed.

      Or featured

        'Featured' is a Hubpages euphemism for 'indexed'--a.k.a. listed by Google and other search engines.

          Oh, right, sorry. Even if your hub is featured, it will still take a day or two until it is indexed on Google. So, the process is published >>> featured >>> indexed. But, I suppose featured and indexed mean the same thing. You learn something every day! smile

    I think when I started contributing to HP it took more than 24 hours. Now it is taking between 3 to 6 hours. I agree that it is the time of the day which matters because sometimes it is even faster.

    I agree that it totally depends on the time of day that hubs are published.
