I think it would be helpful if Hubs were dated. I am often reading a Hub and find myself wondering when it was written. Am I missing something.
Just a thought.
I've experienced that myself. It would be easier to know which hub is the latest (as in the last one they wrote) when you're perusing a hubber's list, too.
If you go to the hubber's main page it will have a box that says hot, latest etc. Hope that helps!!However dates somehwere on the page is a good idea. But you can also tell how old they are by the comments noted on them.
My feeling on dating hubs is the same as what I posted here. I still think its not a good idea.
Not having a date on hubs allows your content to always seem fresh even if the hub is months or even a few years old. Hubs are not blogs or newspaper articles. Hubs work best when the content is seen as evergreen. Information that can be useful for people for a long stretch of time. Although hubbers can write news type material for short term high traffic =P
The beauty of no date listed is that it allows a hub to have a longer lifespan. A hub becomes outdated when the information is no longer applicable not when a date says so. When it is no longer applicable, people stop reading it, and it falls into the search engine abyss..

If a hub makes lots of money from Amazon sales and is top of the list in searches, why snip links? Is it just for the good of the site?

I have a hub that has been published for months, and had many views and comments. I recently was told by HP, that it had a broken link, so I fixed the link. Now the hub is in "submitted" section for 2 days and still pending. Is this normal now to make any minor changes such as broken link...

I've only made 4 cents total, according to adsense. I know the process can be slow, and I know it will take a lot more hubs to get any sort of steady increase... but is 4 cents really all I've made so far? Can somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong, what I could do better? I'm a good writer. Maybe...

There was one hub that interested me that had instructions, that I wanted to print, but I couldn't find out how to do it. I tried to copy and paste, but it would not do so. Sometimes, especially with a long hub I like to sit with a coffee and read it in hard copy. Perhaps it is...
