Have you looked at the Related Hubs on your articles lately? They are poorly related to your topic and should be removed. This is probably pulling down our rankings. There has been various suggestions about how unrelated page links destroy rankings. We have no control over this. I suggest replacing it with a list of Tabs - that is what we select for our pages - not some random rubbish. Do you agree? How do we get it changed?
I don't agree, actually.
The related hubs are simply a function of how well we gear our hubs toward keywords and other triggers for traffic. The choice is ours. Do we write with our own unique brand of communication in mind, or do we craft for attraction to electronic triggers?
The reality of how electronic media works is a cancer to good writing, causing us to be pawns in a game we never wanted to play when we decided to put pen to paper.
The related hubs relate in a few days after hub publishing. I have no problem with it on my hubs. I will check on others to get a better idea about your issue.

The new layout explodes the prominence of the related hubs images down the right side of the page. This image appears before all the ads, apart from the Google adsense ad above the title. Related hubs get an absolutely...

I posted this in the "Need Help:Ask Here" Topic and it was suggested that I post it here as it seems that others are having the same problem, no matter the tweaking of the tags on our hubs."I have been...
