    Should I submit the article with the highest hubscore for a higher chance of approval?

      No, it's too soon to submit ANY of your Hubs to the niche sites yet.

      When you write a new Hub, it's automatically considered for the niche sites - but it's not instant.  It can take up to a month before you'll find out whether your Hub will be accepted.  You've only been here two weeks, so your Hubs could still be in the queue.

      Wait till you've been here a month. If your Hubs have not moved by then, you know they've been rejected as not good enough - so there's no point submitting them again, because they will just get rejected again.  What you'll need to do is try to work out why they were rejected, then improve them.  THEN you can try submitting them to the niche sites.

          If you need to improve them and you're not sure where to start, you can post them (one at a time!) in the "Improving Your Article" section for help:

          But like I say, wait until the Hub is at least a month old.

        "If your Hubs have not moved by then (after a month), you know they've been rejected as not good enough." Who said so?!

          Here's the process:

          - You write a brand new Hub.   

          - It goes through the QAP process to check that it's written in reasonable English and doesn't break any rules.  If it passes QAP, it gets published on the HubPages main site.

          - The Hub is also referred to the editor for one of the niche sites.   The queue for some niche sites is longer than others.  Some editors are up to date, and will review your Hub in a day or two.   Some are very busy and may take a few weeks to get to your Hub. 

          - If your Hub meets the quality criteria for a niche site (which are higher than for the main site), it will be moved to the niche site. If it doesn't meet the standard, it will be rejected.  You won't be told - it just won't be moved.  That's why I say, if it's still not moved after a month, assume it was rejected.

          Occasionally, editors will reject a Hub not because of quality, but because they've already got too many Hubs on that subject on the niche site.  But the most common reason is that it doesn't meet the quality criteria.

            Thank you Marisa, you are so helpful, I appreciate how you 'boil it down' for those of us who been away or new to HubPages.

    I'd just like to add this - if you wait for too long for a hub hubpage response that never comes then the message is probably stuck in your spams. Check the spam messages.

    First-- Listen to Marisa.
    Then after a few months or or a few dozen hubs you will know that hubscore does not mean a lot, but high hub views might indicate an article that could be considered for a niche. Make sure you check out the Style guide in the "Help" section.

    I haven’t been active on HubPages in quite a while.  I tried to do a search on submission to network sites, but did not see anything recent, so I’m trying to verify that a few points still hold to be true: 

    1. New hub submissions are automatically put in a cue for potential move to a network site. 
    2. When editing already published hubs, you can only submit one every two weeks. 
    3. If you edit a hub per recommendations suggested by the HP Team, which their email specifies which site your hub would be eligible for if properly edited, that hub can be submitted after revisions, and the ‘every 2 weeks’ rule does not apply.

      Absolutely right.

      If you've been away for a while, I suggest reading my Hub on The Basic Rules (it's on the slider on my profile).  They have tightened up on a few rules, especially as they relate to Amazon, and my Hub summarises them all in one place.   Worth knowing before you start making changes.

        Thanks Marisa! I printed your article, and appreciate the shortcut. I just don't have the time and motivation to do all the background studying like I did when I first joined HP.

          You're welcome.  I originally wrote the Hub for the new arrivals from Squidoo, and I've been keeping it updated ever since. It's become even more important now due to the niche sites.
