I know lots of people do not know much about St Kitts. My spanking new article was put in HubPages anyway. I am wondering if I was suppose to say WanderWisdom before I Published it? I was thinking all new articles are automatically considered for the Premium Superman Topics?
Does this mean my new article did not make the cut or did I publish without the proper directions?
Paperfacets, you didn't do anything wrong. All new hubs are published on HubPages first of all. Later, when a staff member has time to look at a newly published hub, the article may be moved to a niche site if it's suitable.
So this new Hub is on someone's radar? How is that possible? Isn't is buried forever in HubPages that Google shuns? How long should I worry about its status?
A new Hub is always published on Hubpages first. At the same time, it is placed in an editor`s queue for the most appropriate niche site. The editors are busy people so it could take a few weeks for them to take a look at it.
The QAP team and the niche site editors are two different things.
No, the hub isn't buried. My understanding is that all new hubs are evaluated. The time needed for them to be switched to a niche site—if they are—varies, though. I've found that it takes anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks.
Thank you Alicia and Marisa. For me: be patient and wait.
It also depends if your hub is "featured". When a hub is first published, you will get an email from the QAP process. If it is featured, then it will be made available for google indexing. It usually take a few days for this to happen. If your hub is not featured for whatever reason, you will be notified via email. Then, you are welcome to edit it and resubmit... I have gotton past the QAP at times with very few edits here and there. They don't like multiple links or too many Amazon recommemdations. If not featured, then your hub will not be found by google search. Good luck.
I've never had an email from QAP. Just a screen message when publishing. Then within a few hours it's featured.
Perhaps you did not select the notification option. Check your profile...
Neither have I and I assume it's because all of your hubs have passed the QAP process. You do get a notification email once a hub is moved to a niche site though.

A few months ago, I've submitted my Blackout hub to the Owlcation niche hub site. It was declined, since they believed it would be better suited for How They Play, since I've got one section on playing board games. I've...

I have only written 5 and to be honest I really didn't try very hard on 4 of them.....all of them got featured though. This is with Hubpages finding them, not me sending them in. Do you think if this is something that I...

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? ...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not...

Regarding niche sites, at the moment, all we really know from looking on the My Account page is if a hub is featured or not. It would be useful to know *where* the hub is featured (Soapboxie, Owlcation, HubPages,...

Could someone please take a look at my hub on Reflexology and tell me where I have gone wrong? I stopped writing hubs for a long time because I felt it wasn't worth the effort, but with all the new safeguards and...
