Hi all - its been a while since I've been on the forums. I'd love to see a new feature that would allow us to schedule a hub to be published. When editing a hub, the score tends to drop a bit, and I would love to be able to press publish, but allow it to continue "marinating" overnight or even for a day or more before going live. I just hate publishing a hub with a score in the 50s... regardless of whether it climbs up subsequently.
This would also be helpful for people that want to time a hub to be published close to a specific day or event.
Actually, you can do this already.
Save your finished Hub as unpublished and then just watch what it does for the next 2-3 days.
Then hit publish when it's up in the 60s or 70s.
I just publish my crap when most of my fans are around...
LoL, do you time it perfectly Pest? I bet there is some skill involving beer and UFO sightings to work it out..
Steph what an awesome idea! I have dozens of hubs finished but can't find time to remember to post them it would be perfect!
That would be good for outside of the USA hubbers too, I always forget the time difference when publishing so I seem to miss the good traffic from the states.
they do have that smileys button, Pest... n shows you all the keystrokes, lol
I would not be worried about the score of a hub in relation to publishing.
The sooner you can publish, with an appropriate amount of content, the better.
You can't get quality traffic to an unpublished hub. Search Engines can't index an unpublished hub.
I am not so worried about the score marinating, so to speak, but I'd love to be able to predate a hub to post at a specific time other than right now. I like to finish mine in advance, and publish throughout the month, and it would sure save time from having to manually publish, especially as this morning it was slow on my end.

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?

For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to 90. Is this how HP rewards us for our hard work? Correct me if I'm wrong but...

I recently got my lowest score ever for a book review on Kate Chopin's novel, The Awakening.Anyone want to give me some feedback? Usually my scores start around 50 and go up as I construct the hub.The entire review is my original writing. I didn't copy any text.

I was just wondering why my hub score increases even if it is still unpublished. Some are already in the 60's before I even publish them. Why is it like that? I'm sure there are lots of factors affecting the score but shouldn't the scores be in part due to how other hubbers see my...

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or overall hubber score to have those unfinished hubs (often with just titles) sitting...
