Pending hubs dilemma
How can a Hub still "pending" for publication have 13 viewers already? It does not sense to me. Just another HP nonsens
Yes, Hubs that are pending are still visible. The 24 hour pending status makes no sense to me either. Just more nonsense.
It seems to me, that the goal of this new feature is to prevent spammy, low quality content from getting quickly indexed into the search engines. 24 hours or more of "pending" status would allow more time for somebody to flag a low-grade Hub or more time to get caught by the lovely automatic filters we have here. The message I got on my last Hub, basically said that the Hub is still visible for readers but pending to the search engines, and when its status becomes active or "featured," it will be visble to the SEs (Google, Yahoo!, Bing, etc.) for indexing.
Yeah, well, this sounds like a good idea for repeat offenders, but I'd say that most of us would rather have our stuff active on the spot, as soon as we hit the word "publish."
I liked when I was able to time the publication of my hubs and it made a lot of difference. For the "qualified opinion" of Google, Yahoo and the rest I never cared since my hubs are clearly marked - NON commercial.
I agree it is a good idea for some but long term users, and those who have hundreds of hubs, really do not need to deal with it.
It's possible that the 13 views are actually your own. I've went ahead and just simply clicked on yes to show idled hubs on my profile, which also includes newly published hubs. I wrote a quick fix on how to take care of all of this - http://goody5.hubpages.com/hub/Quick-fi … led-status Keep on hubbing
Yeah, if people would regularly tweak and edit their low-performing Hubs, it wouldn't ever be a big deal, as it doesn't require rocket science, as they say... Just think of all the Hubs that got zapped from the non-active members... Ha!
Thank you so much Goody; after reading your hub I changed my settings on my profile page and at least the HP community can see them. I totally dislike the arrogance that HP has and their "explanation" that is for our own good

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...

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?

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...

Something happened to me today that I have not experienced before.I did some "gardening" and revision work on one of my featured Hubs... and I was "done editing" it stopped being "featured"...

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....

I have a hub pending and traffic is rising 2 triangles. Does this mean it will get featured.
