Every time I submit a hub through the "Share" button to MIXX site, I receive this message " Sorry, the URL you are attempting to submit is not valid on our system." ???!!
I believe Mixx have blocked the site from being submitted anymore due to some people submitting their own hubs.
The button is given by Hubpages! is it supposed that the publisher does not use it? why did anybody not point to that?
Yep it is the idea that people don't submit their own sites or the company will ban it. The share it button is for other people reading the article to use. The problem is so many people have abused this system that social bookmarking sites are getting fed up and removing the ability to submit page from hubpages etc which is detrimental to everyone, because some people didn't stick to the rules and submitted their own work.
On "My Hub Statistics" the first thing you find is a blue button says "How do I get more traffic", and the answer is "you can send links out to the internet community through ..." they give 4 ways, the fourth of them is : "Social bookmarking sites like Digg, reddit and StumbleUpon".
That means that it is not the hubbers who started that, it is the black hat tactics. I remember one "guru" wrote that you can submit a comment that contains one of your keywords to Propeller, the thing is that propeller banned the whole site and I think it is HubPages.
Mixx has banned hubpages because too many hubbers spammed the site.
Just put an excerpt on a blog with a link to yuor hub and submit that instead.
WHat is mixx anyway, just another stupid social bookmarking site? Its 499 in alexa rankings, in contrast hubs is 425...stick to top 100 for your self spamming
its prob not community members that ruin these things for you guys, its the internet marketers who do it formulaicly and u wil never change their habits...so just move on
I don't really like the way Mixx is set up. I did submit my work there, but I also read and befriended other people too.
I don't think it's a bad thing to advertise your hubs, but you need to also participate in the community that you submit them too. I don't consider that "spamming" but maybe others disagree.
It's called networking and people and businesses do it everyday.

I am wondering if these different sites that host articles (like hub pages, squido, xomba, triond, etc.) are better for certain types of writing and other sites for other writing types. If one were to write something...
