    I haven't written anything for months on HP, but have just started again. With the hubs being held before being featured, do you normally shared them on fb right away or wait until they're featured? Sounds like a dumb question, but I'm not sure if anyone can see them outside of HP, even if they have a link.

      If you share it on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and so on, then whomever clicks on the link will be able to see it. I submit links to these social sites immediately so that the hub starts to gather views which in turn aid my total impressions.

        I do the same as Luis when I publish a new hub...well, minus the Twitter part.  I'm not a tweeter.

    I wait until it's featured, b/c I'm not entirely sure if ads show up or not until they are approved. And if you are trying to earn income on HP, you wouldn't want to drive traffic to a Hub before the ads are showing. But I could be wrong about that part.

      They don't show until it is featured. I wait, so I don't waste traffic.

        They do show online while pending.  They just aren't indexed by search engines.

          I think (could be wrong though) that Barbara was referring to the adverts not showing whilst the hub was 'pending' or not featured, so there was no opportunity for clicks if the Tweets etc generated readers during this period.

            Ah, that makes sense.

      earlier i used to promote on on fb, pinterest immediately after the hub was published, but after a fellow hubber posted that she waits till it is featured and ads come up, i have started following her advice.

    Hi there Healthy Pursuits - I have recently started using both Facebook and Twitter for advertising my articles, and I post them as soon as I complete, and nobody has complained that they cannot see them smile So I am pretty sure they can see them!  I hope this helps!

    I shared mine right away on Twitter, with the disclaimer that it may not show up right away.

    Oh, I meant to add that I also do a teaser screen print to get people interested in clicking through.

    Thanks for the help, everyone! I really appreciate it.

    I share straight away because the link I post is active from when I publish (even if the hub is not yet featured). As hubs seem to be getting featured much faster lately I am not too worried about the adverts, although a little confused I admit, by the fact we could get views whilst ads are not showing yet, and not sure if HP's Ad program will still pay us on that basis (impressions) if there are no adverts in place yet for readers to see.

    So glad to find this forum! I joined HP for almost 2 weeks from now, and I just knew how helpful are these social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) in creating impressions to hubpages. I guess I should share my new post as soon as they are already featured.
    Thank you HP community.

    As soon as a Hub is published there is a prompt for Tweet, Facebook and Pin. I normally do it immediately hoping that the Hub gets attention at these sites. Since the time between publishing and its being featured is not very long, I feel it is good to use the options at the earliest.

    HP encourage us to share it upon publishing the hub smile
