I had trouble with my most recent hub "How to Talk Aussie (I to P)" being published due to "duplication". The problem with a topic like this that many of the slang, strine and colloquialisms I need to use have already been published elsewhere. Anyway the hub was published for a few minutes before it was flagged "duplicate" and taken down. It took me five attempts to alter and add to it and another day before I managed to have it accepted.and republished. However when this happens Hub Pages doesn't re notify your followers that the hub is now published. Previously when they tried to view it the hub was just show as no longer published and they would give up. I manually shared the hub myself when finally published but it has had few viewers which is strange because the first two in the series were extremely popular. Any suggestions?
Hi Dear John,
That has always bugged me to death that HP does not send out another notice to one's followers! Then the rating will drop just because no one knows it's published. If most of those you follow are like me ...I log in through my email and not on my stream, so I do not see a lot that is shared by anyone. I only log in via HubPages when I have to ask a question or post a forum, for I do not know how to get there when I am logged onto my page via e-mail, as I never see any options to get to the questions, etc.
Thank you for posting this, for I love your wonderful series and I am heading that way right now, dear heart! I know I will vote up and more and share everywhere to maybe help with getting our same followers to read.
Peace and blessings
To get to your stream from any HP page, just click on the "HubPages" logo at the top left of the page.
Thank you for your support Faith. I know you'd mentioned this problem before with another hub you weren't notified of. It would be good if HP could do something about this, but we just have to wait and see. Thanks for checking out my hub.
Jodah - I too have been waiting for the next installment. Will hop over there and read. I have been enjoying this series by you. (By the way, don't you think that HP needs to do a better job of communicating with hubbers when something is flagged as "duplicate content"? I had that same issue a few months ago and had to play the "20 questions game" before I could figure out what they were dissatisfied with.
Thank you Carb Diva. I agree that it would make life so much easier if they could highlight the section our whatever that is duplicate so it can be quickly fixed. Anyway I hope you enjoy the hub.
I haven't gotten an email from you, John. I noticed when I tried to view the hub when HP notified me, it came up as No Longer Published.
I agree with you. When issues like these arise, HP should resend notification once they've accepted a hub they've taken down as approved.
I almost never get emailed when the writers I follow have published a new hub, whether it is the article's first try or a second or third attempt. Notifications are very sporadic. I seem to get notified more regularly on topics I follow, but only every now and then for the writers I follow.
Good point, Jodah. I found I have to keep up with my hubs, keep checking into HubPages or a big problem may arise.
Frustrating when a huge effort is put into writing, creating and sweating over a hub then to have it blasted out of the water in a matter of seconds.
You can always "Share" your own hubs. There's no rule against it and people do it all the time (I don't, personally). It has the same outcome as a notification; it makes the hub appear on your followers' feeds. I wouldn't stress about it.
I was getting a ton of emails from HP. I stopped all of it.

I didn't think this was allowed and it is rather annoying spamming a link to one article every couple hours.

I find it kind of ridiculous that I have been waiting for a couple weeks now for one of my hubpages to be published. What was the longest time you have ever had it take to get a hubpage to publish?

I don't often moan but even I am getting a bit fed up of the 'waiting' period. I thought it was 24 hours? I have recently published a hub that, by the time the ads come up, everybody who is going to read it has read it,...

When I click on it, it just says "Hub shared!". But what happens with the hub? Where does it show up for my followers? How did I share it?
