Should I refrain from editing my hub if I see a red arrow?
Since our hubs goes through quality assessment and the status is "pending" not "featured," should I refrain editing a hub with a red arrow (meaning traffic is rising)? If the status is "pending," does it mean that no one can read it or is it like "not featured" that someone who will click on my link, in pinterest for instance, can still access the hub?

As to your second question, I'm honestly not sure. But the Hub status, whether featured or not, should be resolved within a day or two, so I doubt much harm will come by linking to it early.

Yesterday I went into edit mode on one of my non-featured (idled) hubs but DID NOT make a single change. (The reason I went in there was because I just wanted to look at my summary, which I can't do without going into edit mode). I did not do any typing whatsoever. To my surprise,...

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...
