Hubpages is a little bit hard for me.Will somebody help!
How do you publish a hub?What is 'pending'?I am frustrated.I don't seem to know how many words a hub should have
In the initial stages you feel all at seas to have a grip on what hub pages really means. You should write an article without grammatical faults and your content should be yours. You cannot publish what you had written elsewhere. 500 words would be fine. If your content is rich in information, your hub gets featured. You will find it very easy to be a part of hub pages if your content is hundred percent original.
Pending means you have to wait for a moderator to check your article before publishing it. If you look at the upper right portion of your hub, you'll see a scoring section. It will also show you your word count. Try to get as many boxes on it checked as possible. This will increase your chances of having your hub featured, which means more exposure. Good luck!
Publish a hub by clicking the button. Pending simply means the hub is going through the Quality Assessment procedure. I'm not sure about other people, but most of my hubs move from "pending" to being given a status within eight hours or so. Once the hub receives a score or if HP finds some problem with it you need to fix, you'll see the appropriate symbols next to the hum title under your account.
HubPages is a very simple Online Publishing Platform once you get the hang of it.
When you are writing a Hub there is a box to the right of the editor that helps you gage what you need to do to your hub.
There is a word count, HubPages actually say you should aim for around 1150 words in your Hub.
The next part is a Picture count. Aim for 3 or more relevant images.
The next part is for Maps and interactive content. Look to add two. A map is a great addition to a Tourism Hub. Polls and Quiz's are a great addition to.
Once you are ready hit the green Publish now button at the top and you will be taken to the preview of the Hub.
It takes 24 hours for a Hub to be fully approved. Check your account to see how it is doing.

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 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...

If updating a hub that is featured, say your best hub, a Hub-of-the-Day hub, a contest winner, or such, puts it into a no-index state until it's reviewed again, why would one want to ever update it?I have such a hub that has an almost constant broken link symbol. Every time I've checked the link in...

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...

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...
