    Hey all - some good news at last. Despite losing 80% of my income and 75% of my US based traffic to my most profitable hubs - traffic to my religious nonsense has doubled!!

    It's a miracle!

    You have got to laugh - right? lol

      So we should talk about God and Google in our Hubs now?


      Are we supposed to put something on the sacrificial alter?

        Never mind that. Google is taking it out in "tithes" since our incomes have plummeted.

        Just keep your fingers crossed that first born anythings aren't required in addition.

      Exactly! Jesus is a heroic man of action, a healer and a miracle worker. You only kept on mentioning his name and now everything is double double for you.

        Hate is very marketable. Look at Paris Hilton and Trump's comb-over.

          Why do you think that Jesus lashed out at the money lenders in the temple - just didn't like the competition!

              Yes those Meerkats even had their own book in the top 10 bestseller list over Christmas - not sure what that says about us Brits!

              But you know Jesus does kind of dominate Christmas (in theory!!)

    You are all welcome to a G & T at my place - I have been to check my stuff for the first time for a while - and find that all my figures are UP - on my poetry hubs, and they have been steadily climbing since the Panda slap, maybe my choice of avatar worked as a ploy !!!!

    Sorry that the "google god" is taking so much of your traffic and income. With all the new changes I have decided that hub pages won't be anything but a hobby.
    Last time I checked my nick pulled one article I had written and its been my nick by which anyone found me.  A while back, before this change there were over 60 results for it.
    I have heard and seen that you have some of the hottest topics concerning our economy and if those aren't being read than what hope does anyone else have.
    The weird thing it all this is my traffic has been steadily growing, with no sales, but my back office says I am making a little money. Nothing to write home about though.
    Like the ones below I am going to change my profile picture too. This is for what they are doing to you Mark and I am guessing quite a few of the others here.
    Good luck Mark, and everyone.
