Time a Hub can remain "un-published"

    Trying to complete my hub challenge I have had a few ideas for hubs and tried to use the relevant keywords for a title only to be told that they are in use, but when I search google and hubpages I can't find the relevant hub, it does not seem to exist.. The only thing that comes to my mind is that they have been "reserved" un-published by someone else, preventing others from taking their keywords.. I know that I have a couple that have sat there a while incomplete..

    Maybe I am wrong, does anyone else have any ideas?

    If this is the case can a limit be placed on how long a hub can stay in existence without publishing, this will ensure that the keywords are released back into the pool for others to use for their titles..

      Like Whitney says, it's pretty much forever and a day smile

      You could try the keyword phrase without hyphens.

    Forever. Ha

    I've got some saved in my unpublished list from the end of 2009. I'm really trying to get all of them finished soon.

    You can change up the url to be url_title or url-title. or try to find a slightly different key phrase.
