Any ideas why a hub that was published on the 22nd, score of 87, and 100 views, is pending still?
Obviously a quality hub with the score and number of views. Why are other hubs which were published later not pending and this one still is. It doesn't even show in the topics. I feel like I am getting robbed of views. Are these the supposed improvements?
The only thing that comes to mind is that you might have edited the hub while it was in pending mode. Whenever you do an edit on a new hub, the 'pending counter' is reset to the beginning. So if you publish a pub, you would normally expect it to come out of pending in 24 hours. However, if in hour 23 you go and edit that hub, it will take another 24 hours for it to be published.
Also I think the official blog said that a hub might be in pending for up to 48 hours, although they try to get them out before that. I don't think the quality of the hub has anything to do with how long it spends in pending mode.
I guess HP staff would say that given the numbers of visitors the hub might expect over its lifetime, a couple of days at the beginning will hardly be significant, unless it is a hub about something that is happening now, where you expect a spike in traffic, but which will not be searched for very much in a couple of months' time.
Thank you, I will no longer go to correct a typo until it is no longer pending. I never believed in leaving a error sit. I also added a link to part 2 of the story. It seems we are being penalized for making improvements.
Becky, if one edits any time even after the Hub is released from Pending status, it starts all over again.This whole thing needs to be revisited by HP. There are serious problems.

I find it kind of ridiculous that I have been waiting for a couple weeks now for one of my hubpages to be published. What was the longest time you have ever had it take to get a hubpage to publish?

The hub I published this morning says not featured but has a good score and ads? I'm on my phone so I can't edit it. This is not a low quality hub though.

I just completed a one year study of the best times for me (my time zone) to publish a hub in order to gather the most initial one day views. I have found that when I publish a hub at 2:30 pm (Florida time/Pacific time) I get the most views in a one day frame. The reasoning is that at 2:30 pm it is...

Right now, while a Hub is pending, it doesn't show ads, it has a "no follow" tag etc. However our followers get notified and they may share the Hub during that time. It would be nice if that notification could be delayed, too.

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...

How do I have 14 views and comments on a hub that is pending being published?I wrote the entire hub in one sitting without re-editing, so it can't be my own views.
