Question on timeline for new hubber

    Hello everyone!

    I've published my first hub (featured) and made a few comments here and there on forums and questions -- not quite sure I'm confident with my way around those interfaces -- do only some areas allow you to "nest" replies instead of just replying downthread?

    Anyway, my main query is about what to expect on the timeline for being a new hubber. From what I understand:

    1. Publish 5 Hubs to get something? QAP? Do these five Hubs have to be all featured? What does "simultaneous" mean in this context, how long do Hubs remained featured for?

    1b. Then I am out of "Boot Camp" does this mean my Hubs are *actually* published now? While in Boot Camp are they only visible internally?

    2. Publish 10 Hubs -> Apply for AdSense

    2b. Choose an earnings program. Everything seems to require AdSense, so I should get 10 quality featured Hubs as soon as I can to apply? I assume that takes time maybe?

    Thanks for any comments and clarifications, or if I missed any steps please let me know.
    Cheers,
    Jeramey

      Congratulations on your first Hub and welcome to HubPages!

      1. Publish 5 Hubs to get something? QAP? Do these five Hubs have to be all featured? What does "simultaneous" mean in this context, how long do Hubs remained featured for?
      Once you have 5 published and featured Hubs, those that do not pass the QAP are no longer unpublished.

      1b. Then I am out of "Boot Camp" does this mean my Hubs are *actually* published now? While in Boot Camp are they only visible internally?

      2. Publish 10 Hubs -> Apply for AdSense
      AdSense also appears to be looking for accounts that are at least a month old in addition to having 10-20 featured Hubs.

      2b. Choose an earnings program. Everything seems to require AdSense, so I should get 10 quality featured Hubs as soon as I can to apply? I assume that takes time maybe?
