So what is the part most people overlook? Traffic? I know i dont have much traffic right now, but im waiting for the search engines. Ive done my SEO so hopefully i will see it pay off. How long does it take?
I'm not sure I understand correctly; but if you mean when you add a picture capsule, add a picture, and then click it to move it up to, say, be right next to your text; do you know you can double-click to make it narrower (so it will go right next to the text - rather than be over or under it)?
In other words, if you don't double click the top of the picture capsule it will stay wide and won't fit next to your text. Also, with the picture capsule at the bottom of the Hub (when you're in "edit"), you have to "change the order of the capsules by moving them up/down on the gray box at your right-hand side. Don't forget to click "re-order" or they'll all go back to where they were.
If you double click to make the extra capsule narrower but try to move it up to the left-hand side of your text, it will stay on top (or under) the text, depending on where you move it. Whatever the "extra" capsule is, you can shrink it to make it go on the right-hand of your text.
HubPages makes it pretty clear the site is optimized for FireFox, so you have to take that into account if you use other browsers.
And I have to agree with everyone who says HubScores don't mean anything outside this site. You sort of have to think of your overall HubScore as a very vague metric. Yes, it can effect nofollow-dofollow, but that comes down to just staying over 75.
Ok i misunderstood then. Its not so much the traffic, but that people take you more seriously and you know you are doing something right. Having said that its still early days for me, i just dont want my score to drop much below 80.
You do n't import your hubs to Red Gage you load a link to them. If you could import the hub it would be a duplicate of the one here and that would have a negative effect. Linking to a hub is similar to loading a photo there. I have HubPages open and also Red Gage then go to the bottom of the page of the hub click the link and copy it into the correct box to load it. If I can do it anyone can.
I notice that people like Sunforged and Darkside, who know what they're doing, don't actually import their blogs to places like Redgage - I assume because of the obvious problem of duplicate content. They only use them for adding links.
However I just tried importing a Blogger blog and I see what you mean - I can't get it to work either.
Taking seriously ? Hmm, don't worry about it. Like offline world sometimes we're invisible or nothing for crowd and unless you offer something that they need and they'll not take you seriously unless you give them what they want. Think about your own hubs and forget hubscore completely. i see a lot of content on your squidoo profile,25-lenses. I wonder what made you get into hubscore-loop worries. Just keep on writing for HP or other revenue sharing writing communities.
Stop worrying about your hub score. It means nothing outside of Hubpages. It only gives you some confirmation that you're making a useful contribution by writing really good, interesting hubs that people want to read and comment on, and become fans/followers. Reading and commenting on others' hubs is good too.
Participating in the forums helps as well, even if it's just frivolous nonsense.
Increasing traffic from outside of Hubpages is more important than within. I also woudn't think most hubbers would be inclined to click on the Google or Amazon ads on others' hub pages.
You can optimize SEO until you're blue in the face, but it won't mean diddly-squat without backlinks from blog sites, forums and such. This is more likely to increase traffic.
I have an old blog that isnt monetized at the original source (Marisa is correct, I wouldnt run full feeds of an actual money site to a revshare site) set to import to redgage..also a facebook and twitter feed. Maybe youtube also, im not sure.
The functionality is spotty, it didnt seem to work for weeks and all of sudden there were a bunch of new links.
I also have been surprised to see the feed work and get some feature money on a facebook photo feed of some old paintings.
..in short, the import feature works....eventually
Mmmm duplicate content, thats slipped my mind. But how can that be bad for you? When there is duplicate content dont they still credit the original article? Or else people can just copy anyones work and influence their SERP in a negative way. So if you copy to redgage for instance it gives you an extra backlink, and it can get traffic to your site. Not true?
This whole duplicate content thing is a thorny issue - some people will tell you it doesn't matter, some say it does. My understanding is this - obviously when faced with two identical articles on a subject, Google has to choose between them. It will choose the copy with the most "authority" but it doesn't always get it right. You don't want to risk Google choosing the one that isn't monetized, so it's better to avoid the situation.
My hubber score is not rising despite all activities prescribed by the hubpages.Average of my hubscore is increased a lot. Traffic has gone doubled. Backlinks to my profile page and hubs are also increasing. My forum...
I don't check my traffic sources in my Hubpages account panel on a regular basis, but today was one of the days I did hae a look and am wondering if it is the same for other hubbers.In my hub stats, it says I have just...
