    Stumbled on this on an old forum thread. go to http://hubpages.com/profile to see a cool "quilt" of HP profiles. go to http://hubpages.com/profile/YOUR PROFILE NAME/map to see a cluster of your article categories. Of course, actually put your user name in place of YOUR PROFILE NAME.

      This is neat - Does anyone have any other HP URL tricks? I know that there's a 'Top Authors' one, but I can't remember what the address is for that.

          That's cool. Interesting to see who has the top Hubber scores.

          Are these best authors judged base on hubbers score or earnings?

            It's based on Hubber Score.

      This is cool but non of the links in my quilt work. They all lead to a page saying "Sorry, that user does not exist."

      yup i saw those writers under the quilt, by golly, some of them had less than 50 hubs but high profile score.

    Nate the old forum thread http://hubpages.com/profile was indeed a cool "quilt" as your "play on words" stated. http://hubpages.com/profile/YOUR PROFILE NAME/map was a different tale. I stumbled upon a site of a hubber who called him/herself "your" and never contributed any hubs in the 7 years that "your" was on HubPages. Odd isn't it! What do you have to say about that?

      I noticed that too. Not sure what was going on with that guy. The link should be hubpages dot com /profile then you put in your profile name and then /map

      It gives you a cluster of your categories.

      Edit: Of course, there are a few possibilities for the profile called Your. Maybe they wrote Hubs and deleted all of them. Maybe they were a sock puppet account at one time. Maybe they just wanted an account to view Hubs and participate in forums. I remember some people saying they started account just to be able to participate in forums.

      Seven years ago would have been not long after HubPages first launched, so whoever they are, they were there near the beginning.

        According to Marisa Wright placing a link to your own profile within a hub you have written is illegal because it is considered to be an unrelated link.  I am no removing that link from all hubs I just added it to!  GOD I HATE THIS STUFF!

          ? illegal?  I have a link to my profile on a few of my hubs.  I've never read that it's illegal, only that it shouldn't be abused.  Obviously the links need to be relevant to the content.


          Hey Nate, the map link is rather cool.  It took me a few tries to get the url correct, but here's mine.  Make sure you enter the url correctly.  The links no longer work if you click on a title/word. This was pre -subdomains.

          Thanks for sharing, Nate.

            Oh, so that's why they don't go anywhere. Thanks Rebekah. I guess they just left this there and forgot about it.

            No problem, Rebekah. I didn't try clicking the links. That's interesting that it's pre-subdomain. I was speculating like Glenn why they're still there; a bit of a blast from the past I guess.

    Interesting. When I try this I get a blank page. Not even a hubpages page template.

      I suggest that you have a read through of the HP LEarning Center, it contains all of the information that you need on what HP is, how to start writing and how to enhance your work. Start here: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/great-content

      Read and learn, that's the best way to get to know how it works. Ask questions if you cannot find info you need. There is a ton of information in the Learning Center to sift through.

    Wow! This is really very interesting. Thanks for sharing the info. There are plenty of hubbers who scored 100. Amazing!
