Someone told me something a few days ago about a "wheel" that determines which hubs show up on people's home page first. For the life of me, I can't find the thread.
Anyway, idea was that new activity on a hub can cause it to bounce up. I've done a few tests, though, and I'm not seeing it. Under latest, or under hot.
Other people's comments, my comments back, revisions, etc... none of them seem to have an effect. Is there a time lag? Am I looking in the wrong place?
Just trying to understand the mechanism.
Or was it "the feed"
(this is what I get for trying to remember something I've only got fragments of)
Looking at home page now, maybe it was about that feed....
but that's only things you're following, right?
I think the wheel you are referring to applies to google rank rather than hubpages rank...
I'm explaining myself badly, I'm afraid. I see now that it's the feed on the homepage that I never visit. I kept trying to see it under hubs with latest and so on.
Feed only appears to show thing you're already following, though.
Nor will most of your readers, so it's not important.
I often wonder just how many people do visit that page?
OK... just trying to get the terminology down and understand how it all works.
I think I've got this bit now. It was "feed." I just couldn't remember the word. I've looked into it a bit since.

Hey Hubpages Staff,I've been a member for 15 months now and have been told countless times that "Share with Followers" is NOT to be used by the author of a hub.Then why is it that the FEED is loaded with...

While I understand that hubbers might occasionally want to share some of their own hubs with their followers, it can be frustrating to see multiple 'old' hubs shared by their owner when looking at the 'feed'. I'd...

Are spam comments supposed to show up in our feed? I've never noticed them before, but all of these latest spam comments are appearing in my feed on the home page, and I've received a notification email about...
