If I understand HubPages' instructions, they say if I'm going to promote an article on Facebook or Pininterest, I shouldn't do it immediately after publishing, but that I should wait until it gets featured.
Apparently it has something to do with the URL.
However, once featured, if I now wish to submit the featured article to a Hub niche site, should I still wait to see if it's niche-bound before posting it on FB and Pinterest?
Not sure and any input would be appreciated!
Yes you have to wait until your hub is featured because if you promote it when it's just published, but hasn't passed QAP yet, your readers will see a 404 message (page not found). I don't see any advantage in waiting until it's moved to a niche site. Keep in mind though that for keeping it featured your article needs views from the search engines like Google, Bing. Views from FB and Pinterest are nice, but don't count to keep your hub featured in the long run.
I usually do. I want the finished product to be what gets seen anyways and feel a few days won't hurt me. As long as it's evergreen (which based on your other hubs likely is) the traffic will be there...if time sensitive like a current event or something, then I guess you may be forced. That's my opinion on it anyway.
Thank you both for taking the time to help. I appreciate it! Tim

I recently had a hub un-featured for engagement, as the half-circle indicates. I think this is an unfair practice and should be eliminated entirely. Here's why I feel this way:Our hub traffic is often affected by the time of year, holidays, seasons, and current events to name a few. If left alone,...

Is it better to share Hubs from niche sites as opposed to the main site on social? Do you guys wait for them to be selected for niche before you share?

I have been in touch with the team concerning a hub of mine that was unfeatured due to the fact that I had only HP traffic and no Google traffic and felt this was not fair because my article had been online for years and had more than 1400 total views.This morning I received the following email...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

Typically, when an article is shared in Social Media sites, the first photo on the page is the one that shows up. For me, many times that's great; it's the photo that I want to appear, but other times, the photo is good for the page but not so much for Social Media. Is there a way, or...
