What is awesome hubpages.com?

    I was strolling through google analytics as a change from the ironing and I noticed one of the site sources was "awesome hubpages .com".  I know HP is awesome but this is new to me. Have I missed a change or is it something that Paul is doing to revive the site?

        I'm not sure whether to find this amusing or irritating quite honestly. I'm feeling a little of both. lol

    Ah its the sub domain thingummy.
    Therefore when we all have subdomains you will be able to see in google analytics which hubbers have read your hubs?

    So far, I've found only about a dozen of the new subdomains.  Some are users screennames but a few aren't.

      I think I was just really confused when I saw the phrase as a source on google anlaytics!

    Harharharharhar.  I see you found my temporary subdomain. wink

    When the staff was testing them out, some of us went with usernames, some of us (coughcoughcough me) went with words.  Since clearly a synonym for Simone Smith is "awesome" I decided to have a little fun.

    But it is going to be switched my username soon- that was just a test, and the subdomain shift will be username-centric.  Hope that clears things up!

      Ah, well as long as you enjoyed the hub I don't mind!  I was just rather thrown, as if someone had changed the name without me knowing!

        Yeah, it was just part of subdomain testing, nothing big big_smile

      Is there going to be an option to change usernames? I kinda like the idea of having a 'cool' domain name and it seems a little unfair that new users will be able to use 'cool' subdomains and us more established users are going to be stuck with ultra-exciting sub-domains like: simeyc.hubpages.com

    Some of the possibilities are frightening, while others make sense.

    You had great advice at least a year ago from Hubbers who suggested organizig HP into subdomains that capture the content categories of the site.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but something like brilliant.hubpages.com could be mine? Or maybe glam or LOL or, well, the possibilities are endless smile
