I was just curious to know that how much time does it take to get your article edited, if your article is in the editing list of the staff?
2 months ago i submitted my article to a niche site, the staff mailed me that your article has the potential, so we are putting it in our editing list. But its been 2 months now, my article is still on discover. Any idea how much time it usually takes?
Amara, I'd advise you to forget about them. Six of my articles are in the editing queue, and they haven't been touched in over 9 months, nor have the editors responded to my emails. Simply place your hand on your heart and say, "All is Well."
Well, thats disappointing :-(
But this is what I've experienced. It is, without a doubt, sad and disappointing.
Please see this thread the case is still the same: https://hubpages.com/community/forum/35 … -this-boat
Stay blessed sister
I have an answer for you. It took one of mine to go from that queue to a niche site in 9 months. Granted, I did do a second revision sometime during the waiting process. So I'm not sure, but possibly revising it a little could draw it more traffic, which could mean it gets bumped in the queue.
If an article you submit to a niche site only needs a tiny bit of editing, the editors tend to go ahead and do it and move the article over.
There is some kind of traffic flow system behind the scenes for editing. If you get the email that says you've been placed in the editing queue but it's a really long wait, etc... it will be sitting in limbo for a while.
Thank you Andrea for giving some time in answering my question. That's helpful.
Yes Amara.3 of my articles are in editing queue now for 4 months .So I guess it takes time!!!
Its too late. I dnt like waiting that long :-D
Its a pity that nearly all writers are affect.
Haha Eric what a perfect depiction of the situation
What I find interesting, is people have been waiting so long for articles they have submitted to Network sites to be edited and accepted, but I was just surprised to receive an email saying that one of my articles “God is Watching Over Us (Things Happen For a Reason) was chosen to move to a network site ‘LetterPile’ without me having submitted it.
That may not sound so strange, but the article was written in 2013 (last edit 2020) and it has sat at HubPages all that time. They also moved it without editing it at all. There may be a backlog in accepting hubs that authors manually submit to the niche sites, but editors are obviously going through older hubs and approving them to be moved.
Mostly Petterpile? Because I had experienced same.
What is Petterpile, exactly? Wondering. . . Thank you, Miebakagh, for informing us that HubPages now has a new network site called PetterPile
. . . BTW...Thank you for bringing a grin to my face.
God bless you!!
That's really weird. lolz
Exactly. And despite the many challenges editors are facing, hope they got over and take the bull by the horn.
John, thank you so much for sharing this information.
Two of my articles have been edited by Hubpro. One takes eight months to edit, while the other takes a year and three months. I have other pieces in the queue that have been waiting for more than 1 and a half years but have yet to be revised.
Hey Eric, you're not alone. Others have been waiting that long. I'm on the queue likewise.
If staff can't cope with the influx, it means that they don't need or want more new articles. So why do we keep on writing when views and earnings keep on going down the drain...
They need more hardworking and responsible editors, I believe
I would like for them to get a bonafide social media manager who helps promote the best of HubPages and brings traffic to the site. When I worked on the web side for a news station, the amount of views one article would get just from posting to Facebook was madness.
Send a reminder to email@example.com/ It takes time. Some here have been waiting longer than you...up to 9 months!
I got a strange message some time back about one of my articles edited by mistake. And after that, no further edits happened on that article. So I guess the possibilities are endless !!!!!
About 3 years ago, I suggested an article of mine for inclusion for one of the vertical sites. I got reply it's on the editing list. 3 years down the line, nothing. No email to inform me the article has been declined for inclusion on one of their vertical sites. But, I never waited for their email to inform me of the progress or status of the suggested article.
And, that, was my first and last time I have ever suggested an article for consideration on one of the niche sites. I write and publish articles knowing they always scan articles on Hubpages to include on the niche sites. I have about ten articles that are sitting coolly on the niche sites without having suggested them.
Don't tire yourself with waiting and reminding them.
Even though that sounds like a bad experience, I would submit every two weeks if you have content sitting in Discover and HubPages. Discover is like limbo, and with a little bit of editing, most things can find a better home.

Editing doesn't seem to happen any more. Maybe it's been discontinued as a cost cutting exercise?
by Eugene Brennan 7 hours ago
It was published 12 years ago and has had seven edits by editors over the years. Possibly it has been moved because of low traffic or not enough content. Some reasons suggested were: long walls of text non-evergreen content photos that are too small (<700px...

When you edit your existing articles, what do you do?
by Thomas Swan 9 months ago
In the last few months, I've spent a long time updating all of my network hubs, improving the language and flow, breaking up the text, getting better pictures, fixing links, adding more recent research, updating stats, titles, descriptions, etc. My traffic across these 100 or so hubs seems to have...

Hello Beautiful souls, This month, I submitted two of my articles to network sites and have yet to hear back from the editors. They did not accept or reject it, and I did not receive any emails stating that the articles had been placed in the editing queue. The strange thing is that I emailed them...

I have 37 articles on PetHpful that are undergoing editing....AGAIN. This happens a lot. I'm expected to go into each article, read it, fix the mistakes the editors put into my articles, and repost the articles. I have other writing projects (book, book trailer) pending for my agent, and I don't...
