    I've been heard sever times in this forum that people suggest that we need to wait to see real traffic and google position for a hub until the hub get mature. Can anyone explain this bit more? how we say a "hub mature" or not

      It takes time for a hub to settle into it's "final" resting place in the search engines.  It takes time to gather the organic backlinks that will effect your traffic.

      Such things are what is happening when a hub "matures" - they are not automatic or immediate.  A good hub may well have increasing traffic for many months before it settles out at it's top level.

    This is a reference to the way the google algorithm works.
    Although not completely understood, it appears to value aged content over new content (although there is often an initial spike in traffic as search engines have a component that is designed to get breaking news found quickly.).
    I believe Hubpages has said that traffic to a hub often doesn't peak until between 18 months and 2 or 3 years.
    Many hubbers have reported continuing increases in traffic over time, even on neglected accounts or hubs.
    Many people quit when they don't see instant results but those who continually publish new material are glad that when their first hubs really start to get moving they have plenty more on the way to maturity.
