To Ping or Not To Ping Newly Published Hubs on HubPages

    Normally, I ping my newly published hubs right after publishing them.

    But, I am wondering if it would be better to wait until hubs are featured to ping them.

    Should I wait till a hub has been approved and scored?

      I ALWAYS wait until a Hub is featured.  You don't want a search engine to follow a link and find NoIndex on a Hub.  This delays the indexing process.  I wish HP would stop sending emails when Hubs are published and wait until they are featured.  I've brought this up before, but the problem persists.  Consequently, as soon as I have a new Hub featured, I ping and then I add the URL in Webmaster Tools. If you do that, it will be indexed within one hour.

        Okey Dokey!  That is what I was thinking. I will wait until hubs are featured from this day forth. Thank you, Fox.

            Mom is adorably polite while trying to find her way in that beastly Alzheimer's fog. She amazes me. Nice of you to ask.
