I'm brand new here. I'm 'finished' with my first hub and want to publish it... but only if I know I can come back later and make it even better.
p.s. I can feel an addiction coming on
I'm with Mark. Some of these topics are so current waiting to achieve perfection before publishing isn't always the best way to go. At least three of my hubs address topics that change on almost a daily basis. So I update them as often.
One hub in particular I published last night. I've updated it five times since I posted it. All because new information became available over the course of the morning.
Another hub dealing with competing technologies has also gone through at least six changes as new information became available.
Another reason I "rush to hub" is to ensure my hub title isn't <cough> stolen. So I say post now and polish later.
Yes, you can. However, it's sometimes a good idea to let your Hub "stew" for a few days before you publish it. You want people to see the Hub at its best, so don't put it out there half-baked.
HubMaster .. Welcome in the club Of course you can edit your Hub as many times as you want , you can even delete the entire Hub if you want to .... So go on Publish it .. Happy Hubbing !
Hey Marisa - don't worry - this is just college signing in as a new person and asking questions so he can answer .
He'll be along in a minute.
I like how newbies name themselves "Hubmaster" and the like.
Thanks. I'm not sure if you are joking Mark or if I should care if you're not... but I believe in 'playing fair' so I don't want to be mistaken for someone who doesn't (especially right out of the gate).
Well, I recommend not caring about what I say that's for sure
Publish and be damned - then fix it later.
Darn that is a good point... I actually put that in assuming it would be taken, and then bam! it was available so I kinda knee-jerked it, surprised it was available. See you guys soon. I'm off to ride a bike w/my 6-yr-old daughter (just got home from school)!
I have seen in one of the days "A three word Hub" , so it can`t be worser than that , is it ?
If you perceived hostility from my comment regarding your name, then that is your mistake.
I merely mused on the fact that you are brand new to the site and yet chose an alias for yourself that is misleading and,well, arrogant.
None of us are Hub Masters. Every one of us continues to improve day by day, word by word. To name yourself so from the start is pretty arrogant and rude to the rest of us.
I can fully understand that you'd need to rush your Hub out to publication if it's on such a hot topic. I just remember reading a "how to" Hub from someone who found their Hubs performed better if they were left to accumulate a better Hub score for a few days, before publishing them. So if your Hub is not that topical, it doesn't hurt.
I read the same info here on the forum. It was casually mentioned. I tried it, and it seems to work as long as there is original content added to the hub.
How does an unpublished hub accumulate a score? WEIRD!!! I guess I'll have to try that sometime.
I was going to attempt a cute/sexy comment to you Stacie, but apparently you are a MARRIED WOMAN! <gasp>

I asked for feedback on my hub and got some very good help. I now want to make some changes. Will the original hub stay up while I edit it, provided I don't hit "publish"?Thanks

Is it possible to be able to see the word count when previewing the hub unpublished, or another way to do so before publishing. I know that after the results have been gathered, the word count is listed in the stats. It...

Prior to publishing a hub, how do those page views keep adding up? I thought that no one could see it prior to having it published. My latest one published already had 60 page views! Just curious...
