    I wasn't quite sure where to post this. I haven't seen anything about this on the forums so hopefully I'm not asking something blatantly stupid. If so, Sorry.

    Anyway, do any of you ever create new hubs just to reserve the URL for future development? Sort of like regular domaining with .coms

    Is it frowned upon in the community? Do unpublished hubs ever get deleted?

    I ask because I kind of do this to some extent. I like to work slowly on several hubs at time over many days, and so I usually will go ahead and make a new hub with the idea that at some point I'm going to publish it and I like to make sure that I grab up a good hubpage url.

    I've noticed that there are huge amounts of hubs about ipads/iphones and it seems like people who grab up the best urls early have a big advantage.

    What do you think?

    I don't-- but if some do, why would they advertise the fact?

    I know some members of the community do this. However with over 900,000 hubs onsite,  many basic names have been taken.

    I only reserve hub names so I can remember all the topics I want to write about. Then it'll be staring me in the face telling me to write it.

    In the end hub URL names aren't really important. You can add an extra word on the end. It's the hub content that is important.

    If I write a 200 word, one text capsule only hub with the URL as

    I'll probably still rank lower than a 600 word hub with pictures, amazon adverts, lots of capsules etc called

    In fact the second one might get better results as an URL because it has both singular and plural in the title.

      ah good point. about having cars and car in the url.
      I know content is king as they say. I try to make sure I have somewhat long hubs. I'm always going back and editing them, updating and adding new info.

      When you want a particular URL I find that certain URL's  are not available then I search for the hub and don't find one,  this means  people are booking URL's
      Can't we get this URL if the person who booked it has not worked on this? or decided to write on something else?

        No. As far as HP is concerned, Hubbers can sit on URLs for an indefinite period of time.
