Amazon changed their affiliate program yesterday by cutting the payout for most affiliates by half or more. Has HubPages addressed how these changes will affect content providers here?
I have a hub published two years ago and it says it needs revision now, but I see nothing wrong with it. Please advise.http://keithtax.hubpages.com/hub/EdenPURE-Scam-Revealed
...the lower my CPM. So I make no more money. I love that about the HP Ad Program. Nice to lock in low returns with no hope for more.
There are no special awards. But I would be honored if it was you.

Things have changed in the forums in the last two years. Most of the good hubbers have left or no longer post much in the forums. I feel sorry for the newbies. They don't have the resource once here. I'm not...
Is it just me or is HP loading slow today? I guess my ISP could be at fault, too, but everything else is loading fine.
Straight from Matt Cutts. We'll see how this one works out.http://www.cnbc.com/id/46825487
The layout change removed the listing of top hubbers. I always enjoyed reading what the top hubbers published. Maybe a layout modification is in order. Top, hot, and latest hubs are still available.
Life in a Farm in Napal. I guess life is somehow embedded into the dirt and animals. I have no problem with the hub, but are there any standards HP has for a "Hub of the Day?" I guess we all need to work...
A year ago I was making $1000 per month on HP. With all the changes over the last year I offically dropped below the one view per hub per day number. Sad.On a brighter note: My 11 year old daughter started making You...
the HP/Amazon rape and rob we were all required to sign up for Jan 1st? I need to plan accordingly, but HP is mum on the subject after kicking the hornets nest.
Lucky me. The idiot is back. Merry Christmas, Keith.
I imagine a few people will notice as my hubs disappear here and appear elsewhere. So I write this forum and my last hub detailing my discontent.There have been issues in the past, but nothing I would leave over. A lot...
Amazon has performed poorly this holiday season. There are plenty of clicks, but few purchases. eBay is growing ok and Google and HP ads are doing great. Just curious if others having the same experience.
On a small number of hubs I provide regular updates. For a few months now, everythime I publish an update, said stalker comments his anger and sometimes even verges on threats. At first I published the comments,...
My 16 year old daughter wantes to write artistic hubs (sketching, painting, etc.) The TOS do not allow minors to join HP. Can I open a separate account in my name, have my daughter write for me, and use my HP ads...

I followed back. Thanks for the follow.
I took a lot of time this year away from Hubpages. The Google Panda update made me rethink my online strategy both here and in my accounting practice. The first leg is now complete as I rolled out my new and improved...

The Panda update seems to punish too many backlinks from comments on other blogs, etc. and is also against HP TOS if it is spammed. So it seems Google likes links directly from blog posts themselves rather than the...
It appears the Google.com website is down. I found a few references to the Google outage on Bing and Yahoo, but nothing concrete. It seems only certain areas are affected. How is Google working for you? Just curious.
If HP staff could check to see why none of my hubs list on the statistics page I would be grateful. It is impossible to manage hubs without it. Thank youKeithTax
I don't know how to manage my hubs without it. Would someone tale a look-see. Thank you.KeithTax
I would like to see the choice of using HP ads on a per hub basis rather than all or none. Some of my hubs have nice traffic but do not lend to click revenue. Impressions would be great on these hubs. Some hubs do very...
Livemind wants me to teach an online class for $25 per hour. Wondering if anyone has opinions on the comapny.
I have several copyright symbols on my accounts page, but only one shows any copyright issues when I go to the hub.
The new HP ad program may reduce Google and Amazon income more than new money gained. My CTR at Google has been terrible since I implemented the program. Traffic is increasing after the Google BS dance, but CTR remained...
My traffic over the last week edged higher and then doubled in the last two days. Today is even higher. Over half of my hubs are experiencing higher traffic. Google and Amazon revenue is reflecting the increased...

There are a large number of hubbers that are excited about their traffic going up a lot over the last week or so. That is good news. The big question asked is: why now? I think the reason HubPages is getting a better...
On my profile page the chart is one big black box. Nothing serious, but it is nice to see the chart.Thanks
I am thinking of taking extended time away from writing. I am tired after a long tax season and with nearly 100 hubs published I rarely get 2 page views per day per hub. (And yes, I do keyword research and some linking....
I made the payout level for AdSense ($100) on April 3rd and Amazon's payout level ($10), too. AdSense has been growing each month and revenue is on pace to reach $70 or so for April. Fingers crossed, I should get an...

I propose that duplicate content be banned outright on HubPages. Hub Hopping shows the massive amount of stolen or copied content on HP and denigrates serious writers here. Others have made the same complaint, but I...

I have over 60 hubs now and could have several hundred before year end. I have been using groups so far to handle the hubs I have, but would like to hear how others with hundreds of hubs manage them.Thank you.
Go figure. My best day ever... on a Saturday. Saturday's usually suck for me. I beat my best day ever by 2 cents and the day isn't over. If it goes any further I'll break $10 for the day on HubPages alone. The last fews...
HubPages today announced the first annual convention to be held in Los Angeles September 15, 2010. Guest speakers, breakout sessions, and social events are planned. "I can't wait to met fellow hubbers in the real...
I checked a hub I published this morning and the video is not working. I rentered everything and still, no go. Then I checked other hubs with video and the same thing.
One of my hubs causes Norton to flash a Phishing Alert. There is nothing unusual about the hub. Thought.
I have experimented with hub design and my new hub is my longest. Any feedback is appreciated. My main concern is if I should break it up a little. What do you think?http://hubpages.com/hub/5-Steps-to-Retire-Rich
I set up an account at Mixx and tried to submit a story and was told stories from HP are not allowed.Is this true? Anyone else have a similar experience? Did I miss something?Thank you in advance for your input.
I've been here only a month and a half, but I am comfortable writing everyday. I've blogged for a while and written a 180k novel in 90 days so I believe I can do it. I have 24 hubs under my belt and have started to use...
I'll be happy to answer them. I have practiced in the tax field for 27 years and enjoy helping others resolve tax issues. If the question requires a large answer I will create a hub page.
