    This is my second account, and I do not expect it to perform as it is for book, movie and music reviews only. However, I thought that the way HubPages and Google worked together meant that a Hub needed time to "mature" to be seen or indexed or what have you and that views will build up over time. I have one Hub that is one month and four days old and is already napping. How is it supposed to "mature?" Is this what is going to happen with all Hubs of this type?

    (Sorry if this is in the wrong place. Even on my main account I rarely use the forums.)

      Great question! And one quite a few of us are asking. *Sigh*

      I think it advisable to post in your "main" ID only-
      However you are quite right, hubs do get better with age- we have all had that hub that did nothing and then suddenly months, even a year later the views start.
      My guess, for what it is worth is that there is something in your hub that threw the HP algorithim and if you published another hub with similar characteristics then it would be zzz from day 1.

      Just a thought, I am sure that others will have more "technical answers". It may be that this account is not suitable for HP and woud benefit airing on another platform.

      I believe the world inside San Francisco changed!

      Everywhere else.... we missed the actual event!  sad

      Given those changes..... How does a hub now mature?????

      unfortunately, clearly no logical instructions were included in the 'So Your World is Changing' kitset that was provided to San Fran business houses (and sheds) and sadly, the preferred actions for those changes involve losing your identity, your traffic, all you've previously learned, considerable guesswork, the adoption of creative and economic excuses for not reading the instructions, a lot of sock puppet forays into the efforts of those who once walked tall in the forums and of course, total disregard to the fact that it took the combined efforts of many great hubbers, most of those who have since left... to help HP get established and gain market respect...

      Perhaps the best way of considering that fundamental seo aspect of article maturity.... is to liken the new 'maturity' methods as being similar to the falling leaves in Autumn....
      You know... they fall down... some get blown back up again in a temporary breeze... most form into piles and in the absence of good leafmanship... they mature into rotting piles of compost!  roll lol

      I think everybody is getting frustrated with the ZZZ program.  Hopefully HubPages will see how the ZZZ program is not doing what it is supposed to be doing and instead hurting not only our traffic but theirs.

    I think I see whats wrong with Contagion by LI Albemont - A Book Review
    You need to add another text capsule with 2 links to other reviews on that book.

    I would use the keyword Zombie in the title of your capsule or in the link descriptions.  If you can't find other reviews on that book.  Look for books about Zombies and recommend those reviews.

    Make sure your link description is at the very least 3 sentences long.  With the key word Zombies.

    I think the integration of the Zzz learning algorithm was poorly timed given the close of summer//beginning of the holiday seasons. Hubs are greatly expressed to go Evergreen -throughout the forums, learning center, etc. To evergreen, a hub needs many components -one is a "sprouting" period. I am under the strange impression, the Zzz was designed for existing hubs more so than new ones. If correct, the Pending function would in essence create a germination stage, where all components would go through various checkpoints. If found to be compliant with the HP algorithm, with search engine permissions, and chock-full of growth potential, is released to begin growing.
    But, new hubs are getting Zzz'd -which makes little sense.

    However, I have a new hub still pending after 24h --and two in Zzz. Plus, two newly printed Hubs have not yet been picked up by the spider yet are getting traffic from several external sources. There are ways around this Zzz and Pending to germinate the article -if of course the hub has quality content.
