I have just wrote a hub about writing techniques and while it has not managed to engage comments (which I am a little sad about) it does have more views in 24 hours than any of my other hubs have ever recieved. I know it has had a few shares on Facebook which have contributed to this but when I looked at the stats I saw a handful had come from a site called news360.
I popped over there and it is full of articles from hindreds of sites - but it doesn't tell me how I got there and I can't actually find my article on the site.
Does anybody know how this site works? It may be a useful place for getting my hubs a wider audience (and other hubbers too).
Looks like a website one wants to be liked by.
Now as long as Russia doesn't go starting World War III and there's an embargo...
That's interesting. My latest hub had quite a few from there and I've seen a smattering here and there on other hubs. I was wondering about it too
Thanks for the link paradigmsearch (just saw your comment, didn't get a notification for some reason).
Does look like a good site to get noticed by and hopefully a few more of my hubs can go that way.
My article on the future of retirement in America was posted there in a prominent place. Don't know how or by whom.
It might be Helium.com. They recently restructure and created 26 theme-based platforms that all end with "360" (as in a full 360 perspective). Apparently, they often scout out the other writing sites. If they do approach you, know that Helium does not allow their writers to delete articles. Once your submit to them, they keep your work >> forever << and continues to make a profit off of it even if you're no longer a member of their site.
They have not had my permission to print it and I am not a member, although I have recieved some referrals from them. It looks like they link back to source so I don't mind it appearing there, I just want to know how it appeared there as it may be a way of getting more views across all my hubs.
It's not Helium. They might approach writers to ask them to write for them, but they wouldn't just take existing articles and use them on the site. News 360 is an app.
I found one of my articles there and researched them. Wikipedia will also give you a good explanation of what News360 does. They seem legit!

I just noticed on my second site that something called Guardlink dot com has suddenly viewed my hubs over 30 times. When I checked on this site, it was written in Russian, and when I translated it, it seemed to be...

The NBA lockout has now started, and it threatens the 2011-2012 season, but does anybody care? It seems to be an afterthought on the sports pages, with the NFL lockout getting far more attention. I know I won't care if...

I just got a turtle and I named him, Turk. I love him already but I am not really sure on what to feed him exactly. I started by giving him water (of course), a slice of an apple, lettuce, and a couple of leaves from an...
