Finding out when a hub was published?

    Is there a way to tell what date a particular hub (not one of your own) was published?

    Yes, most content here is (or is supposed to be) evergreen, but knowing how old an article is still is useful.

    Is this info out there? (Beyond just judging the hub's age based on when comments started flowing in...)

    If not, is there any particular reason why?

      i wondered that too but as KCC said, it may be 'dating' the hubs a little and make lose their "new hub" smell.

      Totally agree with you.  Well stated/queried.  So it has been brought up before per relache.  What was the answer?

    I've always thought that would be handy feature as well.  But, since they are always editable, there are always logistics with the dates of the last update.  Maybe it's better ranking-wise to not be tied to a date? Just guessing.  I just judge by the comments, but a hub can go a long time without ever having a comment.

    You can get an aproximate date by going to any hubbers hub then clicking the link to "read more hubs" and you will be taken to a page the orders that authors hub by latest, best, etc.

    Okay, based on these responses, it seems like this is a feature that doesn't exist. Maybe I should suggest it?

    Info on when a hub was "first published" and "last updated" should be sufficient to avoid confusion.

    I don't see what benefit there is in not providing this information to hub readers.

    If you looked in the new feature topic, you would see it's already been inquired about and suggested previously.

    Relache, thanks for letting me know it has been brought up before.

    Found the related forum thread; however, it looks like it couldn't hurt to suggest this feature again.

    I would like to see actual date published, not just "four months ago," etc.

    It would be a nice feature to have. There are some Hubs I've commented on that were written 2 years ago.

    It would make hp more transparent.
