Flexibility of Hubpages

    Albab's Penposted 5 years ago

    It is the time for hubpage to show flexibility to survive....From my research I have found the article directories which only installed adsense are ranked high in google....for the article directories google discouraging the links in the article.....so hubpages need a big change in the layout.......

    Sorry but this doesn't make much sense.  Can you clarify what you are saying?  The Hubpages staff are constantly optimising the layout to reflect both what Google 'likes' and to maximise advertising earnings.  If you believe links are bad then don't include them in your Hubs.

      Ravado....i am new in hubpages but till understand it is a great place because the number of writers here.... You know I am getting good traffic in another site which have less attractive feature of publishing a article than hubpage......the thing is that it only installed the adsense......see the ehow also.....their layout is very simple.......I have seen the most of the directories with complex layout suffering from this recent change.......just think why google will be interested to promote amazon, ebay , and kentara......the new algorithm is concerned about it.....the layout of the articles is more complex to see.....just open one article of ehow and one from hubpage than you will understand.....the content in hubpage more informative than ehow even....but we are not getting traffic........so we need a layout only with adsense and which should be simple......i dont bother if i add some vidios and pictures but now link.....no other product capsule....to attract google no way but only adsense affiliate.........

    Kontera will be removed during June update of hubpages(check the sticky topic). There will be no in-text link ads clutter on hubs in future.

        Hubpages just changed their ad layout and removed a lot of ad slots

        I can understand your concern but if you get simple layout then your next thread title will be "why my earnings are low ?". I hope you understand the relation between annoying layouts and clickouts.

          I have seen bukisa has also a good layout....very simple....and they have good traffic till the algo change.......if we dont get traffic even how we can think abt less or more.......I want a simple layout.....but well placed ads......see the social networking capsule.....i dont think it has any use.... and i can challenge if we dont remove amazon and ebay........we will not get traffic back.......

    Since you are new, you better read the TOS here.
    You can't publish duplicate content here.
    Your hub: hubpages.com/hub/How-to-buy-a-computer1
    compare to this: bukisa.com/articles/472741_computer-buying-guide
    Both are submitted on March 22.

    In fact, all your hubs are duplicated.

    You call this research ? No point in discussion in that case. Anyway, please fix your duplicate hubs as noted above for the love of kitteh krist or else your earnings will be tanked.

        You are not allowed to publish hubs that have been published elsewhere.

    It is up to you, you don't have to put Amazon or Ebay capsules in your hub. The layout can be as simple as you wish.

    I'm usually patient with people new to the site but I suggest you find your feet here before being critical and at least read the TOS before copying your stuff from one site to another.

    Also your articles would benefit from a lot of constructive criticism - we have a special thread here where you can ask more experienced hubbers for advice.  I suggest you use it.

    Welcome to Hub Pages smile

    In the meantime, get rid of your duplicate crap. It's bringing down my earnings.

        With two hubs that are not terribly unique?  That is not the way. Hubpages optimizes their pages across the whole site, our job is to bring the content.
