End of Year Hubpages Findings Tricks and Tips 2011
I Love To Share My Hubpages Discoveries
Hey everyone, since you are not on skype with me, how else can I share my enthusiasm and excitement about the changes on Hubpages when I find them? Are you noticing these little things or have they always been there? The environment keeps testing my memory and challenges me to move through the forest we call Hubpages.
With so many areas of the network, I'm sure most of us still stick to a routine and don't always venture out to explore the many opportunities out there.

Navigate Hubpages From The Main Page
What I learned today. You can click upon an image shown with the hub article listed on the front page stream of activity and suddenly a new window pops up. This means that you do not move forward to open that individuals hubpage URL. And, after reading, and rating, you simply shut down that little reader window and you're still on the front page.
- Perhaps someone who is wiser than me can tell me if this is an effective use of the network space regarding SEO, hits to the hub and overall Hubpages ratings on the internet?
Commenting Available After You Close The Pop-Up Window
In this shortcut mode to quickly skim, read and rate Hubpages articles you will not be able to leave a comment. In these cases, you have two choices: Either close out the reader and go to the URL webpage or close the reader and leave a comment on the main page. It feels like Hub Hopping when using this mode of action, where you can also leave a comment, as well as to rate and vote.

Bright Red Comment Moderation
The other thing I noticed this week was the special highlighting in RED of the comment moderation tool at the bottom of each hubpage.
In fact, not only can you DENY the posting of a guest comment, you can also MODERATE YOUR OWN COMMENT. Someone please explain the meaning of this? Couldn't we ALWAYS Deny and moderate our comments. Perhaps, this was redesigned to make it more obvious to newbies and older Hubbers, alike, because the staff was receiving SO MANY INQUIRIES.

HOT | We have always had the ability to click to a person's profile and view the list of their hubpages. But, this appears to be a new design where readers are attracted to see the HOTTEST of the author's writing directly from the page they are reading.
MAIL | I don't remember seeing the little 'letter' icon to contact me directly via email on all of my hubs in this way before? Perhaps when I first started that was available up under my profile image.
BOOK | This cute little "Bookmark" icon in green reminds you to tick this hub as a reference for the future. I wonder if anyone actually goes back to check their bookmark's?
Hubpages A Dollar A Day Is Better Than Nothing is a popular article and a topic of discussion. Many people come to Hubpages thinking they will earn the big bucks right at the starting gate. Far from the truth, as in anything, only with time, work and effort will your writing pay off. I wrote this motivational piece to keep our spirits up. Benjamin Franklin has a lot of wisdom to give us in this day and age. debbybruck.hubpages.com/hub/Hupbages-A-Dollar-A-Day-Is-Better-Than-Nothing
