Why have all of my hubs been completely deleted except maybe 20 of them out of over 500? Just wondering. If they were unpublished I would get it, ie: I dont belong here any more... but completely wiped out? It's showing my traffic at 178 today.
Check your profile settings. You have to check the box to have all your hubs appear now. Otherwise only the featured hubs appear in your profile, the rest become invisible.
Thanks, That Grrl...I checked my profile and only the featured were showing...lol....can't keep up with the changes...and I wonder how long that has been so...probably since the changes to profile...so now I am expecting a major flurry of activity. (tongue in cheek)
Thanks Mary for noticing! Maybe others should check their profiles and perhaps HubPages will have increased views. No?
No. How many people ever look at your profile?
I've chosen to make idled Hubs visible on my profile because (a) I can find no evidence that will do any harm, whatever HubPages thinks and (b) I want to highlight my Hubbing-related Hubs for the benefit of newbies - and they are idled.
However, I don't expect that showing all my idled Hubs on my profile will do much for my traffic, because in general, only members of our little HubPages community ever look at profiles.
I agree, I figure if I wrote them and have them showing, at least they are available for anyone checking the profile. I usually scroll down the list of Hubs of other Hubbers when I visit their profile and often visit Hubs that way rather than just current or popular ones. It is a great way of catching up on reading Hubbers I follow since I enjoy their writing and can't read all the Hubs as they come out and often block some time and visit profiles to catch up on new and old Hubs! So no harm done and people like me do go and look at them... so display them please!
Ok... very weird.... now it's all back? Sigh.... I need more wine...
Wow! Ive never heard of anything like that happening..........Is everything back to normal?
Now you've got us all checking our hubs.
I know they don't want to dump you-- of all people.
I know they posted a special link that would show only the hubs with RSS Feeds in the Stats window. Is it possible that you were viewing that and only have about 20 hubs with the RSS Module? That is all I can come up with.
I bet you're right. But they came back by themselves? I haven't checked my account much because a have 2 clients that ... well I wrote over 140 articles in the last month. Good for the wallet but I dont get time to deal with my own stuff...
It still says that you have over 500 hubs. Are they really deleted or just lack the featured symbol next to it?
That sounds a bit like the time a few months ago when many people were showing negative numbers of views. Hope it's all back to normal now, Marye.
And there was me thinking my hubs and my written work would always be here and safe. Not so. This is worrying. Marye you have my sympathy. Your face I recognize from Hub Pages sign in page where you have been featured for some months. I hope you have hubs backed up somewhere and that hub pages have a adequate answer or explanation for this.
No... they came back...it was a glitch that freaked me out

And I can't change it!!!The wording changed in the profile editor. It now says, "Show only Featured Hubs on my profile: Yes No"Which means we now want to click "Yes". Which I did. And then I saved it...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

Hi,Hi,I keep getting the message that my hubs could be featured, but no matter how often I change them, they never are. I keep getting told that they may contain "spammy elements" but I'm not sure what these...

Hi,I've got several hubs which have suddenly become un-featured "due to lack of engagement".On the one hand, fair enough, in that they haven't had a lot of traffic, if any, since they were transferred from...

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is...
