In various posts I see search strings to find posts or hubs on the HubPages site.
Is there a list of these somewhere? Or is it something that experienced hubbers learn?
I've searched the site but can't find them. Any help appreciated.
Up the top of this page you'll see a search feature. The default is set for forums, but you can change that.
Type in what you want, click search.
What people are doing is grabbing the URL from the web browser address bar, and copying and pasting it.
So if do a search for hubscore in the forum, you'll find the results, but the URL will look like this: http://hubpages.com/search/include:forums+hubscore
You can also add multiple types of content, so if you wanted hubs, images, and polls instead of forum posts you would do this (comma-separated, no spaces):
http://hubpages.com/search/include:hubs … s+hubscore
You can also take it another step further and restrict the search to a specific user. That's really helpful for making RSS feeds of your HubPages stuff, just add the user like this:
http://hubpages.com/search/include:hubs … itteritter
Then, to get the RSS you would add "&rss" at the end of the URL instead of "?rss" - I wrote a hub for these little HubPages RSS and search tricks because it can be a lot to remember
Thanks Darkside. Just needed that pointer in the right direction!
... and you can also insert the Hubpages Search Box in your BLOG or WEBSITE. Here is the CODE:
---***--- <p><!--webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" startspan --></p><form method="get" action="http://hubpages.com/search" target="_blank"><input name="q" size="25"><input value="Search Hubpages" type="submit"></form><!--webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" endspan -->
PS: Just Remove "---***---" that I have typed at the start of the code. I hade to type it because Hubpages was not accepting the code here in this Forum.
Thanks Mobile Phones. Just tried the code and it works. Perhaps I shouldn't be surprised but when I start working in code and it works I'm always surprised! Not sure if I'll use it but who knows.
I'm curious, what is the purpose of the HTML comment there, isn't that something for people who use FrontPage to make web sites? It certainly won't hurt anything to include it, but is there a specific reason that it should be included with this search form?
No Specific Reason. I just wanted to show that just ANY Search Engine's Search Box Can be created and included in websites and even blogs or any platform where HTML is allowed. All one need to do is change - "http://hubpages.com/search". For e.g if you want a BING Search Box, just replace "http://hubpages.com/search" with "http://www.bing.com/search" OR "http://www.google.com/search"
I learnt this trick and wanted to share. That's all.

I received an email that a new Hub is "eligible" for a niche site. But it suggests I need to proofread it before it can move over. I edited the article for readability and ran it through a spelling and grammar...

We've heard several concerns about Hubs getting copied and losing traffic and we know how frustrating this is for the author. Google tries to identify the original content creator and show that in the search...

How many views do most people get on their hubs?

Prompted by a comment in another thread, I thought it would be useful to perhaps slightly change the way that we commonly think about changes to hub scores, hubber scores and the like. Rather than see them as a...
