My hub "How to Make Crispy Homemade French Fries" has been pending for 45 hours now. Did I do something wrong?
Did you edit it at all during this period? If you add something or edit something while in pending, the clock resets...
I had one pending. Right after I published it, I went hopping and about the third hop there was the article. Mystery to me.
Oh...yes. I'm always tweaking my hubs. I guess I need to leave it alone!
I have noticed that too. Once it is published, then go back and tweek it. The hub won't go back to pending. Maybe we should keep quiet about this, HP will find a way to mess this up too!
I do not understand why it stated that is pending because I was able to read the article and I thought it was very interesting and useful. The images where also of great help.
flash make it, the pending status relates to the publishing of the hub and being thrown open to the search engines. If we share the hub on any social networking site or share the url in email, it is available for reading.
Flash: Of course, hou have it posted. It is in the system. But you won't find it in the search engines.
While we're on the subject, do you add the pending hub's URL to your AdSense account or wait until it's been approved?
I suggest waiting.
As long as it's pending on the dashboard, there's a hidden noindex code on the hub which tells search engines that they are not allowed to index it. If a search engine sees that code, it may not return for 3 to 4 weeks, even if you use manual tools later to say, "waaaait....I want you to crawl it after all, come back!"
@Vespawoolf, why do you need to add your new hub's URL to Google adsense?
Thanks, Greegeek, for the advice. I'll just try to be patient and wait.
Cardisa, that's a good question. After my AdSense was first set up, I was told that I needed to go in manually after I had published a hub and paste the URL in my account with AdSense. Doesn't everyone else do that?
Cardisa, I paste the URL's under "my ads" then "URL Channels".
Okay. Thanks everyone! I learned a lot with this thread. : )

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...

Why isn't my last published hub showing up in my profile page?Usually, as soon as I publish an hub it shows up in the hubs section (top) of my profile page, but yesterday I published one and nothing... Anyone experiencing the same?

Do you think you are losing readers with this new policy of hub waiting for 24 hours?I have noticed ever since we have this 24 hour 'holding' hub thing going on that I have lost readers on that particular hub. I think that now it doesn't show up on our profile for nearly two days we should be...

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...
