I recently started writing on a new account. I have lost a lot of motivation and have been kind of down in some aspects of my life. But I digress..
I thought it took up to 24 hours for a hub to get published because of Quality Assessment? I checked and it appears a Hub I wrote is already published. How is this possible? Unless it is not actually published and I thought it was.
It's been taking about 3 hours from the time I publish a new Hub until it is featured. I think some of it depends upon the time of day it is published and which MTurkers are working in your time zone.
MTurk is short for "Amazon Mechanical Turk" and that is the service HubPages has hired to review the content of Hubs before they are featured. It is my understanding that some of the raters are from the U.S. and some are from India.
Rating Hubpages articles through MTurk requires the worker to be located within the US.
I've only been a hubber since March, but have noticed my hubs are getting featured faster as well.
My poetry hubs gets published at once though the prose hubs take time and remain in pending list.
Hubs are published immediately, the question is whether it is indexed.
'Featured' is a Hubpages euphemism for 'indexed'--a.k.a. listed by Google and other search engines.
Oh, right, sorry. Even if your hub is featured, it will still take a day or two until it is indexed on Google. So, the process is published >>> featured >>> indexed. But, I suppose featured and indexed mean the same thing. You learn something every day!
I think when I started contributing to HP it took more than 24 hours. Now it is taking between 3 to 6 hours. I agree that it is the time of the day which matters because sometimes it is even faster.
I agree that it totally depends on the time of day that hubs are published.

Some people have asked why do some Hubs go directly to featured. We are working on ways to get more Hubs featured as quickly as we can and are testing mechanisms for doing it. Right now, there are a small number of Hubbers where our system can process their Hubs immediately based on...

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...

In the past few days my traffic had dropped to 1/3 of what it was. Most of it lost from Google. Besides the latest Panda update, which helped some and hurt others, I am wondering if a change that HubPages just made had had a negative effect...Ten of my hubs that were idle (not featured) have...
