Is it okay if hubs sit unpublished for a long time, like maybe for several months? I've started a few hubs but it's unlikely that I'll be finishing them anytime soon. Should I undelete the unpublished hubs and save them in Microsoft Word until they're done instead?
Just leave them there. Currently, I have about 7 unbpublished hubs. When I get an idea I just open up a new hub, title, and save unpublish, so that I don't forg the idea when I'm ready to write. Then I just work on them along the way.
Plus, I've noticed by working on them over a period of days the score tends to go up. I'm not sure why, and I don't know if it's that way all the time, but just somethign I've noticed on occassion.
yes, I have noticed that too...that when you work on the unpublished hubs, the rating goes higher.
Hi teacher Susan, I have 5 "wait-listed" hubs right now. Mom and Dad are here visiting so no time to settle down and write. Now vacations over (GROAN) and no new hubs for me. Oh well, by the way, I enjoyed your lumpia hub. Maybe you should bring again to the office.
Thanks, Whitney. So it's all right to leave unfinished hubs unpublished for several months?
I don't think it would be a problem. I'd just work on them a little bit every now and then as you have time.

This really isn't a problem, but rather something I am interested in finding out. I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs! I am wondering why that happens and if it is any indication of how good the hub...

I have a couple of WIPs (Works in progress) that are not yet published and in one case is simply a holding tank for an idea. Does keeping these in my "space" and unpublished affect my scores in any way?Thanks!

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or overall hubber score to have those unfinished hubs (often with just titles) sitting...

One or two of my hubs have fallen victim to the "does not meet quality standards" empty bubble.In one case, I imagine it is because the hub falls under the "purely personal" category, better suited to a blog. That's fine. I can move it. (It's an older hub...

I have a hub I am finishing yet when I just looked into my account is showed that it had a view. Can people read hubs before they are published? Doesn't seem like they can.
