I'm not sure why my newest hub http://pegcole17.hubpages.com/hub/The-P … ssing-Cash still shows as pending after 2 days. What's up with that?
How do I get this status updated? Does it go into pending every time I edit the hub?
Yes - if you edit a hub while it's in pending status, it renews the 24 hour clock! Best thing is to wait until it is no longer pending and then edit.
Thank you, so helpful to know that. Thanks for asking, Peggy.
Hello SimeyC. Thank you for letting me know. You know, one of the major things I liked about Hub Pages was the edit without delay feature. Things change.
Nice to see you here, Maria.
Even if you edit it, it will go back to being pending, even if it was not before, I believe.
Nice to see you here. Is that just for new hubs?
That's not true.
If you edit a hub while it is pending, the 24 hour clock resets again, and you will have to wait a further 24 hours after each edit.
If you edit an idle hub, it will go into pending for the next 24 hours, before becoming featured again.
If you edit a featured hub, nothing changes, it stays featured.
Thank you for clarifying that, Izzy. I was not exactly sure if it was just idle hubs or all hubs that would go to pending status again.
Looks like we're just stuck with 'pending'. Everyone else has answered your question...any hub pending or idle 'resets' to pending when you edit. It does not seem to be a 'good' thing. Many changes made by hubpages are beneficial and we all like them, this change is not. It doesn't allow for the posting of timely hubs and loses some traffic in that first twenty-four hour period.
My biggest frustration with the "pending' thing is that some hubs take weeks to become indexed by Google. One I wrote almost 3 weeks ago still doesn't show up, even though I've manually indexed it.
I hope this gets fixed soon, and hope yours come out of pending!
Mine was a republish. It never said pending, but it is over a week since I pinged it. It is such a slow procedure. I republished it as it was next to my scraped site, and I decided to remove some personal stories and change the title. I am tired of people stealing our content and making dead links to us. Google will not do anything about it. Several people have tried. Hooray I checked again,and it is now indexed.
There is a group of people who bypass pending for all their hubs - very annoying for the rest of us - especially as they get instant indexing. [discussed before in other posts].
It was just published this month and republished when cache went away. All my others go into pending. I am not an exception to pending rule. Love you guys.
I have noticed that when you republish hubs that you previously unpublished, they do not go into pending, unless they were idled before you unpublished them.
I've recently unpublished a LOT of hubs, and will not be republishing them here.
Try Wizzley, Izzy. I'm pretty sure that when I signed up with them I used the affiliate code on your profile. I'm sure I did, perhaps others have, too.
Did you really? Wow, thanks. I know a few joined up with my affiliate, but then they never wrote anything. Come to think of, neither did I.
All that is going to change in the coming weeks. Time to shrug off my comfortable HP overcloak and dive into somewhere new.

I published a new Hub yesterday which as of this writing, is still "pending" and has not been featured. I noticed when I first hit "publish" that the "You've published another hub!" info box with all of the relevant links/etc. now says that the Quality Assessment...

There is a lot of anger and/or frustration relating to the 'pending' system and most of it is down to the fact that it's not clear why there are exceptions - this is justified and there should be open-ness. (Note this only is aimed at new hubs, not hubs that become un-featured later)One way to do...

As reported in the Forums certain hubbers appear to have "Pet" status and their new hubs get published immediately without the 24-48 hours "pending" delay (orbiting arrows). What's the criteria for this (all had hubber scores above 95). or is it related to what's in the hub -...

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. New pages do not get indexed for days or weeks. This causes lost traffic and lost...

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 - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...

What's up with the 24 hours pending hubs?Every time I turn around Hub Pages is making new changes. What is the benefit of this new nonsens?
