Can someone provide a link to your profile page and all topics on it?

    I found  a blog by a supposed model/actress who dates Leonardo diCaprio, a bunch of topics by others. She has provided a link to the profile page and topics of several hubbers. including me. I do not really like my information known to the public in her blog link. Is this legitimate? She supposedly wants readers to click down to hubs that she is focusing on in her blog. A teaser photo precedes the link. Her blog also includes a section of her hot swimsuit poses.

      I know this sounds crazy , but I found it by googling my name.

      Your profile page is already available to the public, so I'm not sure why having the link on someone's blog makes any difference?

      If you don't want the general public to know your real name, then you need to edit your profile and remove your name from the "Real Name" field.   It is completely optional whether you give your real name or not.

        This blog is one of the spammiest I have seen. The blog title and lead ins to hubs misrepresent HP, her actual blog, and some other sites and consist of suggestive lead ins as a ruse to get to her ads and swimsuit section, She insinuates that she is a member of Hubpages. Google would not consider this a good backlink. Wouldn't we all love a good backlink from a supposed celebrity? Sorry if I created a misunderstanding..

    I will contact the team, as this may be against TOS.

      How is a back link from another site to your Hub profile a violation of the terms of use of this site?

        Especially a would-be potential celebrity backlink? I'd keep it.

          Exactly what I was thinking.

    The main misunderstanding here seems to be yours, in that you don't understand it is entirely your opinion/decision if the link from that site to your Hub should stay or not, and entirely your responsibility to take any actions against the other blog.

    If you think the other blog is so bad, file a disavow with Google and be done with it.  Explanations and instructions can be found in the Learning Center or from Google.

      Thanks Relache. I just thought it was an interesting topic and that others might learn from it, along with me. A similar experience has never come up for me. It is actually a learning experience for all. How many times does a celebrity link to our site?
