    I submitted my latest article to a niche site weeks ago and still no word. ?It is still "pending". Sent an email asking about it days ago and still no response. What's going on?

      It's happened to me. I get busy and forget about it. Then, it's posted on the niche site.

      Hi Melissa. We're sorry that it's taking longer than usual for your article to be reviewed. Depending on how many new articles come through a given site in a given period of time, it can take a little while for content to be reviewed. Please rest assured that it is still in our queue!

      Kindly,
      Haley

    I've had that happen too (without the email bit) quite a few times. Generally, it can be a bad sign when it takes a long time, in my experience. It can often means rejection. Although sometimes it's because they want to edit or alter it before they accept it and that takes them time.

    Generally speaking though, I can't remember anything taking more than 4 to 6 weeks before I got a decision back.

      I don't know what's wrong with this article, my content is usually approved in no less than a few days: https://discover.hubpages.com/animals/C … in-Iguanas

      It's even picking up Google traffic which is rare for my articles not on a niche site, so this is really irritating.

        If you've submitted and emailed, I think you've done what you can.

        Most of mine have taken a few days for a decision, but like I say, there are some that have taken weeks.

        Why that is, I don't know. There are many mysteries about the process! wink

    Perhaps it's just taking the editors a while to get through it; it's a rather lengthy (albeit informative) article. I did notice something in the opening paragraph, though. The last sentence begins with "Unfortunately," but then drops off. Is part of the sentence missing?

    I enjoyed the article. My brother used to have iguanas. Now wild ones visit his yard quite frequently.

    The vet tech/ editor from Pethelpful hás left Hubpages. It seems that an iguana health article, no matter how good, is no longer important. I think this is going to be the New norm from now on.

      We miss Tessa too! She was a wonderful part of the team. But PetHelpful will still be given the same love and care as always smile

        Thanks Haley. I have no longer been contributing since the readers cannot leave comments but I still appreciate the site and am glad to hear that the staff at HP still care too.

    It’s unfortunate that Tessa is no longer working at HubPages. She is very much missed. But who is the new advocate for Hubbers? I never saw an official announcement of a replacement yet. Haley, is it you?

      I do not know Tessa was a staff of Hubpages. I though she was just a writer like any one of us.

        We’re talking about Tessa Buchin, who was on staff as the advocate for Hubbers. She took over from Samantha Cubbison a year ago when Sam left HubPages.

          Buchin is qualifying Tessa. Now I can understand better. Thanks anyway.
