Can the date of initial publication show on the hub. I think that many of our hubs are related to current situations or new breaks, and in a few months if we say that a particular incident occured a week ago, the exact week would be unknown. Unless, the person reading the article already has the time frame in mind.
I think having the date of initial publication under or by our name, would be beneficial. This way if someone is researching a topic months down the line, the date will add some credibility or sorts to the hub.
If you really want to add a date Whitney, you could always add it in text somewhere. A few hubbers do that.
I didn't think about adding it in the text. Thanks. I was thinking along the lines of current new topics and such. But, I guess topics that are everyday, cultural, travel, etc. would not necessarily need a date.
It might turn people off to see how long ago some things were published (the legendary "evergreen" content HubPages so extols). I'd add the date in the text or title, if it's only going to be currently relevent.
A 1st published date in the stats column on the my hubs page would be handy
We're sort of constrained for horizontal space on that page, especially for people that use long words in their hub titles. Do you think first published would be more useful than the last modified date? Or is there something else we could drop that isn't useful? I'll see what I can do.
An originally published date in the stats column would be awesome.
I agree, please see if you can put that in the stats column.
I'd vote published over last modified! The mods tend to be the spelling errors!
I'd vote for seeing the Publish date over the Last Modified date, too.

I have a suggestion. At the bottom of the article you can choose to add a copyright, which includes the date. I used to put my own in without the date, but you can't do that anymore. The reason I did it that way is because I think, when people see a date of several years ago on an article, they...

Why don't I see publication dates in hub pages?I see a few hub pages with publication dates. I assume the authors are adding them to the text "manually." Is this a good practice?

The picture showing Queen Elizabeth and Michelle Obama with their arms around each other is ubiquitous on the web. I have a blog paralleling President Obama's First 100 Days in Office and our 100 days of being laid off back in 2009 that I'm making into an ebook. In one of the postings, I used...

Hi Paul,Published dates in RSS feed boxes is not getting updated. For example I published THIS HUB only today. But in the RSS feeds I have used in other hubs in this series do not show today as the published date. It shows that this hub was published 2 weeks ago! Can you please rectify this?Thanks

Hello,I just posted my second hub. (on 12/31) I want to keep the same date. How can I edit without changing the date? Or there is no such feature? Yukiko
