Do you publish a hub as soon as you are done writing it? Or...
Do you wait for a specific day of the week or time of day because you have found that the reach for your target audience is better during that time?
Sometimes and sometimes I don't publish the hub right away, I like to edit the work. It depends. Some topics are easy and others need more time.
Great question. It takes me a few days for me to finally finish editing and revising a hub. There are a few benefits though. If scores are important to you - the hub score starts off very low if you write and publish in one sitting. If you edit on and off over a few days the score rises by the time you publish. I also understand that the Google search bots begin to crawl your title and sub-title choices before the hub is published (I'm not entirely sure this is a fact). However, if this is true, you then have a recognized hub on Google before you have even published it. Publishing during the week and in the late afternoons seems to get me more traffic. I'm not sure why, but I'm guessing this is the time people are getting off of work and checking their HP feeds.
In the end, most of it is speculation and your target would be the major search engines. Getting visibility greatly depends on your topic, searchable title and supportive sub-titles. Add to that quality content and your target audience will be reached when they search for keywords in your respective title.
I know I shouldn't do this, but I do publish it immediately! Can't wait! I tell my kids to always check they work, but here I doing exactly the opposite!
I often work on several hubs at a time which are in various stages of development. As I put the finishing touches on them, I publish.
Once I have checked what I have written I then publish it. That said I do often go into my hubs and add more content or change some of the wording.
I usually add the unpublished hub after I've finished the text. But then I go looking for the right pictures, videos, etc. that I want. So I've been accidentally not writing and publishing in one sitting.
However, I didn't know that Google crawls my website before it's published. Does that mean people who viewed my hub would get a no longer available message?
Anyway, I usually finish up a hub towards the end of the day. I haven't noticed whether or not that affects how much immediate traffic I get.
However, your question did make me wonder what would happen if I checked keywords for an unpublished hub through pageview.com to see where the unpublished hub would land before I finished it. I know there are other ways to look for page rank, but I like that one for now.
