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 Do unpublished hubs ever get deleted?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 hubpages.com/red-cars
I'll probably still rank lower than a 600 word hub with pictures, amazon adverts, lots of capsules etc called hubpages.com/red-cars-car
In fact the second one might get better results as an URL because it has both singular and plural in the title.
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?

Who are the top hubpage earners and what is their secret?I read a few hubs that described the top hubpage earners but I think it was from last year or so. Who are the top earners now and what are the main reasons for their success?

I have just noticed today that many of my hubs where I reference other author's hubs and included a link to their profile, the URL has been shortened to just "hubpages.com" - thereby removing the actual link to the author. I have no idea how long this has been happening, but I am going...

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some topics just don't get that much traffic. It's not because they are badly written,Is...

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...

I have noticed that when I open up some hubs to read that there is a # symbol at the end of the url.What does this mean - is it anything to do with the idling/pending/whatever they are calling it this week business? And why only on some hubs?
