    Do you think you are losing readers with this new policy of hub waiting for 24 hours?

    I have noticed ever since we have this 24 hour 'holding' hub thing going on that I have lost readers on that particular hub. I think that now it doesn't show up on our profile for nearly two days we should be allowed to use the 'Share' button again, not just other people doing it. What do you think? Did you notice lost reading? And any suggestions about howor when to promote the hub, straight after writing? or a few days later? thanks!

    I typically am already getting traffic from Google within twenty four hours....so I know I'm losing out on this deal.

      Wesman, being new, could you clarify for me how you know you are getting traffic already from Google within 24 hours.  Is that because there are views, even though it hasn't been "published" yet?  Appreciate your response.

      Mr. Clark - on any hub you have published  you can go to the top of it and click "stats" and see where your traffic is coming from.

    I think for me it's not hurting my HubPages followers or those I'm following. For the most part, I still get an email when a new hub is just published. Google is different since I don't get that many guest commenters on most of my hubs.
    But I still say you should let people on HP know via social media that you've published a new hub especially when the topic's trending- it helps give it an extra boost.
    I hope this helps!

      You can't make money on HubPages until 90% of your traffic is coming from Google.  Followers are lovely to have and help keep you motivated, but they don't help you earn income.

    I dislike the pending status because you can't tell when the hub will " go live." It was nice to press publish and see it available right away, you had more control over when it would appear. I do think initial traffic is less now, not that I have a great deal of experience.

    You can make a pending hub show on your profile. Go to edit profile, part way down there's a choice of showing idle hubs. If you tick the box and press save, it will show. I don't have any idled hubs yet, so chose to do this.

    I think pending is a bit of a pain but probably gives HubPages time to thoroughly ask any awkward questions about a hub if they have to. Perhaps a minimal amount of traffic is lost - depends on the quality of content and subject matter - but it looks as if Innerspin has the answer!

    For me, pending status lasts at least 2 days. If I had more followers, it would probably clear up faster.

      I'm still new to this, but as far as I can tell pending status lasts about 24 hours after the last time you edit a hub.  Perhaps that's why yours are keeping their pending status so long.

    Greekgeek is very concerned about the pending status because if Google sees the "no follow" on the Hub, it may not come back and index the Hub for weeks.  So that could mean a huge loss of your most important traffic.

    Boy, I thought it was me feeling frustrated and paranoid, hahaha   Thanks for bringing up this sensitive topic.  Frankly, I just don't get the purpose behind it.  Does anyone else have a clue as to why this was implemented?  Thanks for asking.

    I am still getting readers right away and I am wondering how so somehow that hub is being seen but I don't like that it cannot be shared for 24 hours so in that respect I would rather no one did see it! My first one went beyond 24 hours to come to profile. So will others?
