      Google doesn't like Hp because of all the advertising hubs that are allowed in here.
      Why would they help promote their competition?

      If Google skips useful contents (For business) that suits the search, then people use different search engine. That means:

      If you write very good content, the search engine give priority to it. Actually they are forced to show that in search results to keep the good name of "Google is a good search engine"

    Normally when starting a thread you start with some ideas of your own.

    "Google is destroying Hubpages?"

    ...welcome to a year and a half ago. Where've you been?

    LOL.

    Yes, it has been in a sort of hopeful zombie state since then.

    "Hopeful zombie state" hits it right on the button. Those who were established are still making some money, but most new writers aren't really succeeding.

      William, We might still be making some money, but our earnings our down. At least mine is and I've heard many say the same thing.

      Agree, I really think, that it is best to put the effort on your own blog instead of writing here.
      I stopped adding new hubs. It is really doesn't  worth the effort, as i see it.

    I totally agree. I meant that the only ones making any money at all are the established ones (and those earnings are reduced).

    So is it still worth of creating new articles? or maybe hubpages are falling down and even good writer/good articles will make maximum few cents...

    I've found a "prediction" about this current state here: http://cat3na.hubpages.com/hub/The-Tuth … -From-Hubs

      That hub is at least 5 years old.  It is a little bit out of date, don't you think?

        it is of course... but is this opinion not valid right now?

    Hate to disillusion you guys, but HP still works.

    I have a load of 'newbie' accounts since Panda and you can still see success if you find the right 'niche' or target certain keywords, or even just get lucky.

    As for the OP, it is not a good idea to forum post and show the world how poor your English skills are, when you have a bunch of reasonably written hubs.

    It makes us wonder if you wrote them yourself.

    "Hopeful Zombie State" would be a good band name.

    ....as would "Post-Panda."

    Yes, it still works.  But it is far from clawing its way back to where it was in the glory days.

      This is true, but I do believe it is moving slowly in the right direction.
