How long does this normally take? HubPro editing.

    I have a message on the top of my account page... "You have been selected for HubPro basic.. We plan to edit your article *****  " It's been up there for like two weeks. How long until they do this?

      I've had one waiting since December, so I think it can be a while...

        lol, well that's not encouraging! I guess not a big deal as my other articles are doing fine and paying the bills. Can't complain too much, after all, we're lucky to even have editors. (just wish they'd hurry up!)

          I think its fine just to carry on as if it isn't there and edit it yourself in the meantime if you feel like it. I tweaked mine a bit already, and if I get round to it I will give it another edit.

      I have 5 HubPro notices. They have been there since October 2017.

        Damn! I guess it's just what it is.

      I once waited  6 or 7 weeks. Don't know what happened, but normally, it's a week or two.

    I had one for over a year. But then 2 months ago I got another email telling me it's in review again and it was immediately edited and then an hour later moved to a niche site.

      Unfortunately, it can take some time because our queues are quite long.  However, if you can edit it yourself, you are free to submit it to a Network Site and it may be accepted and removed from our queue. Rob, you have other articles on Network Sites, so I suggest editing the article in a similar way to those articles.

        Good advice Robin. I'll work on it. Thanks!

        lol, no wonder why I'm encouraged to edit it myself! They are much older articles and wow, what a mess.. Proof positive that the more articles you crank out, your writing skills improve...a lot! Yep, I definitely have some work to do on some of my older hubs!

        I have tried editing some of my newer articles to reflect those which have already been moved but find that newer editors are changing the latest ones so that they look nothing like the ones I am trying to mirror.  I also have two outstanding ones which is very frustrating as I can see they could do so much better if they were in the niche sites where they really belong.

          Hi Sally!  Have you tried submitting them to the Network Site?  Your articles are so good, I would think they'd be accepted.  It's difficult because our standards have gone up over the two years since we launched Network Sites.  I know that it can be frustrating to authors, but we are trying to maintain our success.  Let me know if I can help.  smile

            Hi Robin,
            No, I have not, oddly one of them was a submission to the contest and I got confirmation of its acceptance and also of its 'worth'.  I will do that but I was trying to be patient knowing how long one has to wait between submissions.  The delay stops me from wanting to submit a new one in case it too gets lost.

      What are HubPro notices? I haven't seen one in any of my articles. Where are these notices posted?

      On your articles page on desktop view look at the legend on the bottom of the screen. it shows all the symbols that can appear on Hubs and it is there.

      I've had one waiting what feels like close to a year?  I'll get around to updating it myself eventually.

      I try to do what they want me too, but seems different editors think it is wonderful and some not!

      Correction Robin, I have 3 still waiting but have now submitted one of them.

        Did the article you submitted to the contest get moved?  If not, feel free to send me the link, and I'll take a look.

          I submitted 2, the winning one was moved, the other one I have just submitted to the niche site.

      When you say 'submitted' where do you submit? Directly to a niche site? I thought this could not be done. It is the editors that do this after they've reviewed the article. Appreciate clarification on this.

        sallybeaposted 7 weeks agoin reply to this

        If you open the hub you want to submit you will see a place at the top of the page where you can submit the hub to a niche site.

    8. Daniel Mollat profile image99
      Daniel Mollatposted 7 weeks ago

      My hubs appear in the categories where I initially indicated when I first published them. Is the category I selected for each the same as being in a niche?
      There is nothing at the top of each hub page where I have the option to submit to a niche. Am I missing something?

        Go to your hub, not in Edit mode. At the top it will say 'submit to a network site'. They are not the same as the categories you choose when setting up the hub.

        Don't submit new hubs though. They are considered automatically. As we can only submit one hub every 14 days, it's best to improve old ones and submit those.

        You will have to negotiate the submission process. It can take a few weeks for a hub to be reviewed.

      Got It!
      Thanks for the clarification

        You may not have seen that message because your first 15 articles have already been moved by the HP staff. If you want to see the message you can look at your latest hub (not in edit mode), but, as theraggededge points out, it is not necessary to submit it because the editors have not had time to look at it yet.
