Why isn't my last published hub showing up in my profile page?
Usually, as soon as I publish an hub it shows up in the hubs section (top) of my profile page, but yesterday I published one and nothing... Anyone experiencing the same?
hi algarve, its because it goes through a 'checking' period of 24 hours. I noticed this with mine and others too. I was actually thinking that if this is the case and we have to wait 24 hours, we should be able to 'share' with hubs after this time, otherwise how is anybody going to see it? I know that it will show up in the feed, but not on the emails from hubpages. hope that helps.
But that's new, right? Because it's the first time I notice this... I'm really tired of all these changes all the time...
Yeah, there have been so many changes over the last few months, it is crazy. I have noticed that my keyboard hasn't changed, at least... Ha!
There has been many changes as of late, but I suppose they are trying to make our experience here better. It is impossible to make everyone happy and change is inevitable. I have faith in this site and I know that in the end it will be positive.
This is paraphrased from http://hubpages.com/faq/#IdleHub...
When a Hub is first published, it has a status of "pending" for the first 24 hours. Hubs that have a status of "on idle" or "pending" aren't displayed on the HubPages profile page unless one has enabled the setting in their My Account > Profile > Edit Profile (there is a checkbox at the bottom of that page that enables one to show Idle Hubs on one's Profile).
I hope this information helps.
Daisy is right. The "new hubpages" puts new hubs in pending status so they don't show up on your profile for 24 hours. They do show up in your account. The sad part is they won't show up for Google either...but I guess 24 hours isn't too long to wait.
The same thing happens now when you update a hub, it goes into pending and doesn't show up for 24 hours;.
So if I correct a small typo, the hub goes out of the loop for 24 hours?
If you correct *anything* or even click on "edit" and then change your mind and not edit anything, the 24-hour "pending" clock is reset, and the 24-hour waiting period starts all over again.
Even though a new hub won't show up on your profile or on Google for 24 hours, you can still copy the link and share it yourself on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or any other site. By doing this, you'll get a little head start on views until your hub is officially taken off "Pending" status by HubPages.
As a follow up question, I'm curious to know how others feel about this new rule and about the new idle feature. Personally, I believe it has hurt my traffic and I'm disappointed with HubPages for making it harder for writers to get hits. I've read the explanations as to why HubPages is doing this - it may be good in theory, but in practice, it's hurting members.
Honestly, I don't think that 24 hours of pending status on new hubs is hurting me. I was a little annoyed about the idle feature at first, but it has forced me to revamp some hubs that aren't doing anything, anyway, and that's a good thing.
Crystal, I totally agree with you. I actually published and then unpublished to wait out the pending period. It had me too irritated. All of the hubs that I have published since this went into effect have had half the views and comments of previous.
I agree with Stephanie. My hubs that were idle deserved to be idle - they had issues and weren't of high quality. My views have gone up since I let my idle hubs stay idle until I can really improve them one at a time (and delete sorry ones).
Yes, same here. The site seems to be having trouble keeping up with a lot of things lately. I have added mine to the featured hubs section so it doesn't get overlooked.
Hi algar, go to your "edit profile" button and click. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to the "'show Idle hubs" button and click "Yes." Your hub should show up immediately. The new button is for idle hubs, so since your new hub is Idling, it will now show up for you. Hope this helps!
On October 8th 2012 the hub pages rolled out another new program. They have released the ability to choose whether or not you would like to showcase Idle Hubs on your Hub Pages Profile. This means unless you make a change then your idled hubs will no longer appear or be accessible from your profile page for others to see. This may also include newly published hubs, and I've recently written a hub about a quick fix for this problem - http://goody5.hubpages.com/hub/Quick-fi … led-status I hope this helps. Keep on hubbing

There is a lot of anger and/or frustration relating to the 'pending' system and most of it is down to the fact that it's not clear why there are exceptions - this is justified and there should be open-ness. (Note this only is aimed at new hubs, not hubs that become un-featured later)One way to do...

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks. New pages do not get indexed for days or weeks. This causes lost traffic and lost...

I just updated my HubPages profile a couple days ago and in my profile linked to some of my favorite hub topics that I wrote about. Is this bad to do this since on the profile page we have those same hubs randomly come up below? I just don't want overkill but like the thought that I've got my...

It appears that there has been a recent change on my profile page. Underneath the number of published hubs, there is a number of featured hubs. I do not want this to be shown. My ratio of featured hubs is less than 50% of the number of published hubs. My understanding of why...
