HubPages Homepage Question (Question from a new person) - Thank-you!

    Hi everyone,

    My question may be too simple to fall in the typical FAQs.  I am new here.   

    I am wondering about the homepage of Hub Pages.  I see many articles on there (most current, it appears)….and people responding to some of them.

    When a Hub is approved for publishing, will it go to the homepage like all of the articles I see there now? 

    I’m just curious about that.  Does each published article have an opportunity to stream on the HubPage's homepage?

    Thank-you kindly.

      Hi Dr Kitty,

      Welcome to HubPages! When you are signed into HubPages, you see a list that includes Hubs, Forum posts, etc when you go to the homepage. This page is called your "Feed" and it's only visible to people with HubPages accounts. The Hubs, Forum posts, and Q&A answers that show up on it are customized to you, personally. They show up based on a number of factors including comments you've made, people you're following, Topics you are following, etc.

      When you aren't signed in to your HubPages account, you'll see a different homepage (the same one seen by people who aren't members of HubPages). The Hub that shows up on the signed-out homepage is called the Hub of the Day. The HoTD is hand-selected by HP Staff every day.

      Does that make it a little clearer?

        Thanks so much for your quick response!  Yes, when I signed up for HubPages I did choose some topics to follow.  I love the diverse topics on this site.  Thanks again.

      Welcome to HubPages.

      You are talking about the feed page?  The things that appear on your feed are things (hubs, questions, accolades, etc) about people you follow, and topics you follow.

      The hubs do appear when they are published before they have gone through the quality review.

        Okay...that's what I was wondering. I am very new here.  I have written a few articles and they have all been approved.  I was just wondering if I would see those in that feed.  It sounds like I wouldn't see my own....perhaps...unless I am following that topic area....

        I really appreciate you getting back with me so quickly.

      Kitty, not all published Hubs qualify as being Featured, so not everything that is published on this site has a shot at that homepage.  There are a few quality checks and steps between material published live on the site and being showcased on the front door.

        Thanks so much.

        I've only written three or four and they have been approved or "featured".  I like sending my links to my students so they can read some of this material too. 

        I wasn't sure how the "feed" worked. But, you folks have gotten me squared away.  Thanks for responding so quickly.
