    Hello fellow hubbers, I am a bit confused about how discover works. According to the official announcement new articles that pass the quality assessment tests are to be moved to discover. However, my latest featured article is stuck on hubpages. Is traffic also required to get my hub moved to discover??

      When articles are first published, they are on Discover until they are assessed. At assessment they can either go up to a network site, stay where they are, or be pushed down to HP.

      It's in your interest to improve the article so it can go back to Discover where it can earn. You need to work on it and submit it to the appropriate network site so the editors can have another go at it.

      Newly published articles will first live on and then move to after 1 month at most (if it did not get selected for a Network Site). But an article could move sooner if it's getting multiple views before then. It takes some time because it needs to go through QAP and Network Site curation. New articles that pass QAP will not go to HubPages.

        I must have misunderstood. The announcement said this:

        "The new will host all content that meets our established minimum traffic threshold and all newly published content that does not move to a niche site like DenGarden, Bellatory, or PairedLife."

        When it said 'newly published content', I thought it meant all new articles would be on Discover unless selected for a niche site.

          Yes, they will be moved to Discover once passing QAP unless selected for a niche site. That is what I was trying to say above, haha. Sorry if that was confusing.
