Hubpages too difficult to figure out

    Triond is way simpler than this Hubpages.  I'm pretty frustrated as I write this because I've just signed in to my site and it says I haven't published anything yet I wrote two articles.  I've just spent half an hour trying to even find where they're published, seems nowhere. On Triodn I just have to get the article written and then boom - published - SUBMIT.  I need a site that is more user-friendly than this.  Also, at Triond there's no one putting a judgment on my articles either, grading them from 50 - 100.  Sure, if you're illiterate, then the moderators don't have to publish it AT ALL.  I've read a lot of well-written, boring, how-to articles.

    There is a lot of garbage on Triond, I like that HubPages has standards. The HubScore is not a grade, it has nothing to do with quality.

    Are you sure you published your hubs? Check under "my account" at the top of the page. They should be listed if they were published properly.

    I'm sorry you're feeling frustrated, Nancy.  Every site is different.  HubPages is a bit more complicated than Triond or Helium, but from my experience it also pays a lot more per article, so it's worth a bit of effort to find your way around.

    Click on "my account" at the top of the page and you should see your articles (Hubs) listed, unless you didn't save them. 

    If they're there, maybe you hit "save unpublished" instead of "publish now"?

    The Learning Centre is a great place to start - don't be put off by how big it is, you don't have to know everything from day 1!

    The "grading" is not based on anyone's opinion, it's an automated thing.  Everyone's Hubs start around 50, until the automated system gets a chance to work out what it should be.  It doesn't disadvantage you in any way, it just gives you an indication of how well your Hub is doing.
