What's up with the 24 hours pending hubs?
Every time I turn around Hub Pages is making new changes. What is the benefit of this new nonsens?
I think they are trying to determine if the hub is "good enough" to be indexed off site or not.
In other words, they seem to have definitely determined that a lot of things published here are not worthy of indexing, and may negatively affect the site.
Things like new hubs pending for 24 hours seem to be the norm since the hub pages started the idled hub program. It's just something that we all have to live with now. If you need a quick fix for your other idled hubs then I have just what the doctor ordered for you - http://goody5.hubpages.com/hub/Quick-fi … led-status Keep on hubbing
We can still tweet, Google Plus and otherwise market our articles while we wait.
We "have to" live with a lot of nonsense from the everchanging rules of HP.
The idle idea is again hurting creative writing and HP could not care less since the money is not there. Being able to time the publication of a hub makes a lot of difference
It sounds like a good way to weed out the B.S. artists and low-quality crap Hubs, so I'm all for it.
I don't have idled hubs, but I do have one that has been pending for over thirty hours.
I am up for this knowing how many so-called writers are stealing other people's articles. HP obviously doesn't want any of those here. A great idea to get rid of them. It is a benefit to this good writing site.

As reported in the Forums certain hubbers appear to have "Pet" status and their new hubs get published immediately without the 24-48 hours "pending" delay (orbiting arrows). What's the criteria for this (all had hubber scores above 95). or is it related to what's in the hub -...

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...

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...

Please can someone explain to me why, if one decides not to wait 24 hours to put up one's hub, one then has to wait three or four weeks for Google to index. This has absolutely nothing to do with Google, but has everything to do with punitive action from HP.

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.
