Okay, I just published my first hub (sorta). It says pending.. How long does it take for a hub to go from pending to really published?
Also, how often are the views updated?
And finally, how often does hb update their earnings (not like when do we get paid, just the earnings in general) and how often does google adsense update theirs?
A pending hub IS published, it just won't be indexed until after the hub goes off of pending. That takes around 24 hours, although any editing will reset the clock.
Views are normally updated every hour or so. "Normally" being the key word; very often it can take longer and sometimes even a day or two. Right now there seems to be a glitch and the updating is slow or non-existent.
HP normally (normally!) updates earnings each morning, but again can be slow as they don't always get the information they need from advertisors on time. They will also often post a "best guess" that will change as they get more information.
Google updates every night at midnight, PST, although that, too, can and does change occasionally.

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks....

This is now day 5 and no earning figures have been updated. I know you're busy, but 5 days is too long to go without knowing our figures. How about it?

I find it kind of ridiculous that I have been waiting for a couple weeks now for one of my hubpages to be published. What was the longest time you have ever had it take to get a hubpage to publish?

Subject title says it all. Considering that I got page views during Friday, I find it incredibly weird that I didn't make a single cent on that day.If this is some sort of bug in the system, it needs fixing. If this is...

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here...
