One thing I would find useful is if there was a field in which we could put a small note next to our Hub listings in "my account" to keep track of important information related to certain Hubs. This would be useful to make notes for Hubs that need to be revisited and updated due to timely subject matter. I'm sure others could think of many other beneficial uses of notes attached to Hubs. Has this ever been proposed or considered?
This is a great idea and one I'm sure would not be all that difficult to implement! In the past I have used a 'text' capsule in the particular Hub to record any info that I have to remember and 'checked' the 'do not display this capsule button' Of course you then have to remember which Hub you have put the note on. lol
I like your idea much better
I agree with everyone else, it's a great idea. I'd find it useful. Often I don't have time to fully re-write my hub, or I forget my idea as soon as I have it, so something right there to take notes with would be pretty handy
We discussed this feature and have decided not to implement it at this time.
One alternative is to add a hidden text capsule with any notes that you might want to track for each Hub.
I don't know but it's an excellent idea!! Right now I go back and forth between a spreadsheet, which is awkward because the hubs don't have a "serial number" by which I can easily sort and identify them. Good question!!
Hi Rock NJ,
It is a good idea, not sure if that is the best place for it though as the hub listings page could get messy and difficult to read. I keep all of this data myself in an Excel spreadsheet and also a Notepad file. I track any re-writes, updates etc in those files. Perhaps a separate notes page within the "my account" section could fill the void.
I am thinking just a pin that you can click or mouse-over to see your note. I wouldn't need it for every Hub, just the ones that really need to be updated from time to time since they discuss dates and financial info that changes. Something else I thought of since writing my original question is building in a date reminder, so you can make a note and then set a date at which time the note pops up to remind you, or perhaps the pin that indicates a note is attached to a Hub changes color to indicate that it is time to review the note and update the Hub.
I will bring this up in our next community meeting.
In the meantime, you can accomplish most of this functionality using free productivity software.
For example, you could create a Google calendar reminder each time you create a Hub that you feel needs to be updated periodically and include the URL for the Hub in the reminder.
You could also create a Google Drive spreadsheet containing the URL for each of your Hubs and then you could add notations or other info that you would want. This would allow you to track more granular elements of the Hub that you think might need to be updated like say columns for images, video used, dates, or even historical figures.
Really a great idea and I vote for it! It could also help us keep up with comments made to our work. I am glad you thought of it and hope it flies!
This is a great idea! It will help remind us when to update our hubs, and other things we wanted to add/ change about them.

I know that hubpages really pushes for new hubs to be created, and rightfully so. However, I'm thinking it would be nice to be able to "answer a hub request" with an existing hub.So if someone does a hub request for something I've written on (revver videos, for example), I can simply...

I have thought for some time that it would be a good idea to place edited hubs back on the feed. If they are going to be judged again, why not let them be seen again in their updated forms? This would give people more opportunities to get views (and maybe referral to social media)...

Many of us here are working hard to upgrade our hubs so that they can be moved to the niche sites. I think it would be a good idea if those upgrades are viewed by the team the same way as new posts so that they can more quickly addressed. It's a shame to let much better upgraded...

Lately I've come across a lot of Hubs with outdated information in them. If I comment or email to suggest it needs updating, I get the response, "Oh I wrote that ages ago."Sorry, that's not acceptable. There is no date on a Hub so as far as your reader is concerned, the...

1. Sites such as "tools dot davidnaylor.co.uk/keyworddensity/" feature very prominently in the links list ("links:URL search") and appear to store huge list of links on servers. Could Google be mistaking them as "link farms".2. Subdomain staleness. I have noticed that...

As I plow through the lenses to become hubs, two of them I edited do not show the change date of the edit although the updates are visible. Since I am using the date to keep track of the edited lenses, I keep re-editing them but the original date never changes. Is this an issue on HubPages or a...
