Is there a benefit to waiting to publish your hub?
Is there a benefit for waiting for your hub score to become higher before hitting the publish button? I noticed if it takes awhile to get everything arranged that sometimes the hub score starts to climb. Is there any benefits until waiting until it is higher? Or does it not make a difference?
no it doesn't, the hubscore always balances itself out, depending on the overall average of your hubs.
Activity on the site also helps your score
No benefit with regard to hub score. Hubscore doesn't really matter much at all and will fluctuate without any effect on you. You might want to publish the hub when internet traffic is highest, during the week if you want the most views for it initially. Saturday is the deadest day.
To be successful however in terms of readers, the hub needs lots of views from Google, and generally speaking that happens over a period of months, if the hub is any good. So in that sense, it's best to think longterm and not worry about how many views it gets initially.
I didn't think anyone could see or read your hub until it was published. So, now I'm a little confused.
Waiting for a higher hub score can help you in credibility, but it will not affect initial traffic or direct traffic. When someone goes to your hub and reads it, the first thing they will see is who published the hub and a number. If the number is low, people automatically stay away from those articles or do not tend to link to them.
Besides this, if you are writing a seasonal article, it is normally good to wait until that season before you publish it. This way, you can experience a very high initial traffic.
Regarding hub score, no there is no benefit to waiting in my opinion, because the hub score changes fairly quickly soon after it's published anyway.
However, I do wait before publishing a hub because that way it gives me a chance to look at it later with a fresh eye and make any last-minute changes.
I'm a newbie here but I believe I read another hub stating that all hubs start at 50 then go up from there (eventually).
No benefit, in general. I am a ponderer-- so re-reading mine a few times usually gives me ideas for improving it.
On one hand, I am eager to get it up online-- on the other, I know there are probably errors, or improvements that could be made.
Of course you can always edit after initial publication, but I always hope I can have a complete package ready before someone opens it.
The only logical reasons to sit on a hub that is ready to be published is if you are waiting for a high traffic day,which is usually during the middle of the week, with the weekend being the slowest.
Another thinking is if you are waiting to see if it needs proofreading or if anything can be modified or added. I usually keep about three unpublished hubs at at time in the event that I cannot write one on a specific day since I write and publish one hub per day, then I already have some ready to be published.
i don't think so...because everything depends on the quality of your output and not necessarily the timing of the hub.
Whether you wait to publish a hub and your reasons for doing so rests with the individual. There may be valid reasons or there may not. One aspect that may be a part of the decision to wait is flooding the site with so many hubs that individuals may not be able to keep up with them.
In my opinion individuals should not wait to publish a hub based on two criteria. Are you satisfied with the content and approach you have taken and are you satisfied with the language and structure in making you case on the topic. All of us as hubbers have a point to make when we write. When we feel we have made the best effort to convey our point there should be no delay in publishing.
I like to add to a new hub for a couple of days and publish it when the score reaches 70 or so. Lately I work on three at a time. In the long run, as others say, I don't think it matters much. In terms of income, I expect outside traffic to have the most effect, so initial hub scores don't matter.
Within HP, though, I think publishing the hubs at a higher score might generate more interest. I wish I didn't care about scores and ratings, but years of academia made me hard-wired to focus on raising scores.
There is no benefit to waiting for your hub score to become higher. I believe you should decide when you are ready to publish your hub, which could be right away, or you may want to let it sit for awhile. I'm finding out what really counts is the traffic your hub generates regardless of the score. My advice is to publish your hub when you feel it's ready, then promote it as soon as it is published to get traffic.
I think no
coz when you publish your hub and people read it and live comments this will rais your hub score
Honestly i don't know exactly but it is the same
I've been accused of quick release but it's a problem I'm dealing with
Is there a benefit to waiting to publish your hub? I'd say definitely yes!
If you have spent a lot of time working on a hub its best to save it, so the following day you can look over it and cheeck for spelling and grammatical errors, ensure that you have sourced photos etc.
Does it affect your hub score? Well no, but in a way yes! I've noticed that while writing hubs, if my hub is better formatted and spell checked etc, the general score of the hub wil increase. I have had hubs begin on 70.
Waiting for the score to climb, well I think it's better to publish rather than wait on a score increase.
Different people with different languages but the important thing is sincerity and truth.
How'er don't go anywhere just message me even if you need a sincere one in life because i'm also seeking sincere, true and honest person with whom i'd like to share the happiest and sad moments as a partner of life
Like what most people say here, the hub score fluctuates so it doesn't really matter and there's no point in waiting. If you have an article in mind to publish then go with it. Besides it takes sometime too to make your published hub to be read and commented by people.
I guess that I have not had the chance to experience this yet because both hubs that I published were uploaded just after I finished them. I wonder why I should wait?
After publishing the hub, the hub score increases automatically. I think there is nothing beneficiary to publish the after waiting.
The only benefit to waiting to publish you hub is if you have not finished writing it. Oftentimes, writers need to pause to get a fresh outlook on the article's content and then return refreshed prepared to inform their followers. But if the article has been published and you are satisfied with its contents then it is okay to hit the publish button. By hitting the publish button, the hubpage staff can decide to publish your article and you get a quick status on the hubscore and the likelihood of getting more internet readers.

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...
