Is the performance of a hubpage determined by the geographical location of the hubber?
I do not believe that is the case. As best I know, these are some considerations:
1. Quality of the writing.
2. Layout and appearance of the hub.
3. Time on page; how long do readers stay on the article?
4. Relevance of actual content to the title given.
5. Inbound organic traffic
However, if most hubbers are in North America, and you are in Asia, you will likely post new hubs when other hubbers are sleeping. They will not read it, and not vote it up. That might stymie your score a bit.
There has been a belief for some time that there is a best time to publish a hub to hit the American audience. This will only impact your HubPages traffic as your website won't likely be crawled by the Search Engines yet. Personally, I am rather skeptical that there would be a noticeable effect of when it is published.
So there may be a small difference on the traffic you get on day one, but it will not impact future traffic.
I think you should concentrate on what Robert detailed (the quality of your writing) rather than when to publish it. High quality writing will shine through regardless of when it is published.
I agree with you Robbie and Robert. The timing is critical since the traffic is usually high for a newly published hub, but stabilizes with time. However, I believe geographical targeted traffic plays an important role for hubpage performance.

What is the geographical location of the majority of hubbers on hub pages?I follow hubbers from the USA, Canada, Great Britain some in Europe, Japan, China and Asia. However the majority of writers do seem to be from the USA. Is that correct?

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some topics just don't get that much traffic. It's not because they are badly written,Is...

What constitutes a country? Is it purely a geographical location or the people that live...within/at that location? Maybe it 's a combination of the two.

I just noticed that one of my featured hubs got "un-featured" What could be the reason for this?Could it be due to fall in traffic? Or is it just content based? Do you think I should try making changes in the content and try to resubmit it? Would that help?

It would be great to find more Hubbers from my home city - could we have an option to find Hubbers in our countries and towns? I look up Manchester on the search options but the threads are dominated by football fans with threads on Manchester United - all fine and dandy but i'm not a...

I've been on HubPages for over a year now. I have written 253 hubs (I deleted some) and just recently passed the 100,000 views mark. I think I should have more views by now considering the number of hubs and the amount of time I spend here. I know it is more about quality than quantity,...
