    Found this website today and thought it was neat, and kind of funny. Put in the URL of your HubPages profile and it will analyze your writing style, vocabulary, etc, and tell you how old it thinks you are. Mine was spot on! Check it out:

      Mine was close. It said 51-65 and I'm 47.

      It said that my URL is written by someone 51-65 years old. Way way off! Ha!

      That's fun. I write like someone 51-65 years old. Actually that makes sense to me; it's not my age but I'd agree I write like I'm that age.

      Edit: Just checked on my own websites; two of them I'm 18-25 and one of them I'm 51-65. Again, still makes sense to me, considering subject matter of those sites and how I orient the articles.

    Very cool, Christy. I just did it and it was correct, although the age range was 14 years. Hmmmmmmm . . .

      Obviously you can write like your age. It may mean you can write for teens also.

    That's fun! I'm 26-35, which is correct.

    Mine was dead wrong.  It said that I was 51-65 years old.  I'm 23.  Ah well.  'Twas fun anyway. smile

    That really was cool! The analysis was quick and the result was correct!

    Mine was eerily correct - I even entered a hub to see if it would change. Nope. They must have creepy access to my personal data.  Scary.

    LOL, it sounds like mine was the only one it got wrong.  Interesting...

      I looked at the vote results, and 60 percent say it's wrong.

    I did that test and a few others which said I was a happy male in my thirties.  Um, probably wrong on all three, certain on two.

    Mine was right too. 51 to 65

    If your upper range is a 100 is that wisdom or senility?

    It got me wrong. 51-65 years old? I don't think so! (though I knew I was older on the inside wink)

    Interesting, and it only missed by one year.  It said I write like someone 50-65 years old; I turned 66 earlier this year!wink

    I just took this test and mine was dead wrong!!!!!!!!!!! It calculated that my profile was written by someone between the ages of 51 and 65 years old. I'm not THAT mature, thank you very much. I'm twenty-five on Monday! tongue I loved doing this, though. This was fun!

        True. Very true, but I don't take these tests TOO seriously. I do them for giggles. tongue

  16. paradigmsearch profile image85
    paradigmsearchposted 3 years ago

    I gave it one of my former hubs that Google hated. A brilliant, experienced, mature, 65-to-100-year-old I am it said. Wrong. Well, brilliant, mature, experienced, yes. Just not 65-100.

    The lesson? The stupider your hub, the better Google likes it. big_smile

  17. Lisa HW profile image81
    Lisa HWposted 3 years ago

    Based on my HP profile URL:   I got 51 to 66, which is right.

    Based on copying PD's approach, I tried a Hub that I thought was a subject/style least likely to give away my age - and I got 65 to 100.   Wrong - but understandable, I guess.



    (I couldn't resist...     I tried my Bubblews profile and guess what...   36 to 50 on that one.    hmm    "Wronger" than than the 65 to 100 thing.    smile  )

    1. paradigmsearch profile image85
      paradigmsearchposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      I also did a couple of my current hubs.

      One that I considered a dingbat hub.
      One that I considered an intelligent hub.

      Both came back as the same age range, 55-64 or some such.

      Which, incidentally, happens to be right.

      1. Lisa HW profile image81
        Lisa HWposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        I don't really have any true dingbatty Hubs left after major clean-up, but I tried my shallowest and, to me, one that ought to go next (which is casual review of a cell phone that may/may not still be available).  That one got me 26 to 35.  For some reason they apparently aren't lumping a subject like a less than top-of-the-line/entry-level "smart-ish" phone in with the "heavier-duty-older" set.    I'm wonder if they got "the Lisa thing" associated with the profile and are somehow factoring in/averaging (that type of thing) the subject (electronics/cell phones) - but then (maybe?) "assuming" that the absolute youngest set generally has the better smart phones?

        In the meantime, I'll be expecting to see some new ads for people between the ages of 26 and 100.    Either way, it's probably like checking your blood pressure can be:    If you don't like the numbers you get at first you just keep taking the test over and over again until you get the numbers you like.    smile

          Just plug in someone's subdomain, And find out how old they are. I think I'm going to go do a few right now. And anyone is free to do mine. Cuz I don't care. big_smile big_smile big_smile

    And here are the results for a former SEO experiment hub I did, since moved elsewhere.

    The AgeAnalyzer thinks ---------------------/2013/12/i-like-to-pretend-im-carrot.html is written by someone 13-17 years old.

    I can still be young when I want to. big_smile big_smile big_smile

    Mine is 26-35. Very wrong because I´m 53. It´s funny though how this computer can analyzed my age. It keeps me thinking that I might have written hubs for these age brackets. LOL!

    That doohickey said I was between 18-25. I wish! I just turned 44 last month.

    It must've been thrown off by all the articles I've written about KISS... but if that site knew anything about music, they'd know that nowadays most KISS fans tend to be old goats like me.. big_smile

    TDowlingposted 3 years ago

    Pretty cool! I tried three of my Hubs and it figured out my age range correctly on two. The third was about computers and it estimated my age in the mid-30s. Oh! to be 30 again.

    I explored the link site and discovered that they also have a gender detector. Here's the url: http://www.uclassify.com/browse/uClassi … nalyzer_v5 

    Enjoy!

    Very interesting! I entered my URL and it said I wrote like someone 26-35 years old. Since I am 67 years old, I guess it is good thing. Does this make hip and cool too? LOL!

  24. lbsf1 profile image85
    lbsf1posted 3 years ago

    I'm 18 but it got 26-35. So its kinda correct in that I'm young, but still thought I write more mature than my age. smile

    What about the idea that you should write to a 7th grade level. I guess it could still guess your age, or try to, by the way you write.

  28. Rochelle Frank profile image88
    Rochelle Frankposted 3 years ago

    Well--- yes, it did say they were 60% wrong, But mine pegged me between 51-65. Those were very good years, (but  missed by about  6 to 20 years).

    huh...mine said~Some assembly required~and closed my browser...well...that's a bunch of Bull!...so I went back and submitted my highest ranking hub...then it said~Please stop as we are unable to evaluate multiple personality's~...Of course...I blame myself...

    Thanks for the link to the Age Analyzer tool! That's really neat!
    I have found this other tool which tells you which famous writer you write like. It is a very interesting tool and really grabbed my attention!
    I Write Like Tool

    I write like Cory Doctorow, a sci-fi writer. Who do you write like? smile

      Good link!

      This thread just keeps coming up with all sorts of good stuff. smile

      I tried a former hub and a current hub.

      It came up with two authors I'd never heard of.

      I'll check the library next time. I may have found a whole bunch of new books to read.

      1. Jayne Lancer profile image89
        Jayne Lancerposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        If you click on the author name, it leads to Amazon, so I guess the intention is that you buy a book by the author you write like. Great fun, nevertheless.

      Cool. Pasted an excerpt from an old Hub, said I write like George Orwell. I consider that accurate, actually. Then I pasted a personal blog post and it said I write like Cory Doctorow. I'm going to have to look that one up, don't know that writer.

      Just googled Cory. I haven't read any of his stuff but a brief description of him makes me think that's accurate too.

  31. Rochelle Frank profile image88
    Rochelle Frankposted 3 years ago

    I pasted some excerpts from what I consider one of my funniest hubs, about ways to save on gasoline and, oddly enough, it said I write like Stephen King. Eeek!
    Then I picked a serious piece  on an art history subject and came up like HP. Lovecraft. Maybe I should be doing horror fiction, but I don't even like that stuff.

  32. Zelkiiro profile image84
    Zelkiiroposted 3 years ago

    No matter what I submitted, it said I write like H.P. Lovecraft.

    This disturbs me somehow. I mean, I know Fate/Stay Night is awful, but it's not exactly C'thuloid horror-levels of awful.
