Is there an optimal day or time to hit the publish button on your hub?
It depends what you're after.
When you publish a Hub, it appears on the HubFeed, so it's best to publish when people are likely to be around to see it.
However, you make no income from Hubbers looking at your Hub. Your paying audience comes from the search engines, and they won't start arriving in significant numbers until several months after you publish your Hub - by which time, the exact time of publication couldn't matter less.
Remember you are not selling items on ebay that you have to list your items on specific days & times. For hubpage articles it really doesn't matter when you publish your hubs.
Your Google ads clickers come through Google organic traffic or search engines. Hubbers don't click on Google ads they simply visit your hubs to read and write their views in the form of comments. Keep up the good work.
Yes! When you know you've put an interesting topic, wrote the last sentence, crossed all your i's and dot all t's.
That's really a good question. I know a few people have some theories, but I don't know if anyone actually as any evidence of what time of day to publish to produce more hits. There are a ton of factors involved....how appealing is the title? the topic? Are you looking for hubber hits or outside hits? are you looking for it to be read, or do you want someone to buy something or click on an ad? That would mean knowing when people are in a buying mood.
It really depends on the topic. Hard to say an exact time. I know I have some hubs that do better in America time and a couple that do better on international time. So, topic really dictates as well as how quickly Google picks you up and the topic demand at that time.
I know back in the fall...my football hubs were instantly indexed and did great for me and even better on weekends where other hubs would just Die on weekends. Some hubs do better in the afternoon to early evening because of the topic.

First a disclaimer is in order.I broke the evergreen rule with this approach. I knew it going in and did it anyway. What the hell, sometimes rules are made to be broken. Sometimes a gamble pays off, often it doesn't. I do live in Las Vegas though so it is in my blood! Hubs should be on evergreen...

Just wondering if it is spamming to submit your hubs to the same social networking sites more than once? For example, if you wait a week or so between and you are trying to get your hub more traffic can you submit it again to Twitter or Facebook? Or is this a bad idea. Also if so then how long...

I'm finishing up a Hub I've been working on for like 4-5 days now, and I realize that I could probably separate it into 2 because it has become more in depth than I thought. I'm feeling really good about it, and I think it will be a good article, but I wonder if it is becoming too long. ...

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

So I just completed my newest hub (even though its my 9th one, I still feel proud about it and now I was wondering how to promote the hub. My hubs seem to be dying, with some only getting several views daily, and I only have two strong hubs that bring in traffic. I really want to learn how to...
