I have decided to post 3 worthy other hubber hub links on my blog. To qualify, your hub must be high quality and high traffic. I also must like you. You have one hour to email me your link. Do not post the link here.
Edit #1: As you will see further down the thread, both the link limit and the time limit have been scrapped. So keep those links coming in until this thread indicates otherwise.
Edit #2: Re: the "I also must like you" part: Don't worry. As I state further down the thread, I have low standards.
My traffic would probably beat half the hubs here, but that's about it. Also, I neglected the thing for several months and that certainly didn't do it any good. However, I've decided to go back to it big time.
Here's the method to my madness:
A. Instead of spending all my time inflicting my brilliant insights on fellow Hubbers in the forums, I shall now inflict at least half of those insights on my meager blog traffic instead.
B. I'm going to also be posting high quality links as well. I decided there is no reason to limit those high quality links to just CNN, livescience, and all the other well-known sites that don't need the links anyway. Linking to fellow Hubber hubs will work just as well. And it will be a lot more fun.
C. And as far as I'm concerned, my blog is not only G rated, but my “TOS” is even more strict than google's or HP's. Any hub that even wanders near a google or HP tripwire will not be considered. So no boob photo gallery hubs, etc. please.
I sent you a couple of urls to hubs, one is food related. Feel free to use whichever hubs you wish from any of my stuff...(if you like me of course! ) I have a Turkey Series that might be timely for your food section. Have a wonderful Sunday. I like your W site, tons of ref info! Cheers~ K9
I have to say that they are even if they are my Hubs! The Guinness Irish stew is my speciality and my daughter's come back from college etc when they hear I am making it. I end up making enough for about ten people!
The Guinness chocolate cake is suprisingly good too - I didn't think Guinness would work that well with cake - but you don't really taste the Guinness it simply makes the cake very rich and bold - now I'm hungry!!!
Well, I am happy to say that my masterpiece hub-link page is posted.
This brings to mind something else. If I post a hub link on my blog, then it follows that it is also good enough for me to click the FB-like and have that hub show up on my facebook page. I'm going to go through the list and do that now. Although I am indeed a fine human being in my own right, that is not the only reason I've decided to start doing this. Having my facebook page with nothing but my own hub links on it is tacky to say the least. So better other hubber's hubs than just Yahoo, Bing, and such.
I sent a few links. I'm extremely late, but there's always a small chance you might like me. My hubs are weird, though, so they may not fit into any neat category. Some get decent traffic, but one is new.
LOL, I am sure you absolutely love me (doesn't everybody?) I'm not going to send in a link because all of mine are low traffic and nichie, but I think what your doing is great... LOL, I wonder what would happen if everyone decided to do what you were doing... HP the new wiki? Okay, back to my lunch of coffee and fish sticks (I eat what the baby does during the day)
I haven't really developed a taste for macaroni and cheese and french fries... My last two have been EXTREMELY picky eaters (both have had oral aversions/sensory issues)... You know it is bad when you are mixing chopped up cauliflower into peanut butter and telling them it is "crunchy" peanut butter (which I guess technically it is)
I don't really care enough about taking care of myself to spend the time fixing two meals so I eat what I fix her... I don't like it enough to worry about eating the leftovers. On the bright side, I'm actually down 40lbs in 3 months. (No real appetite combined with a fourth floor walk-up)
Macaroni cheese and chips is my favourite meal. In fact, although it is now 9.30pm and I have already eaten dinner hours ago, I have some macaroni cheese on the hob at this moment, because I just needed some.
My son is dyspraxic and when he was little had real problems with the texture of certain foods. Nightmare, other than chicken, pasta and lettuce, I had to blend lots of things just so I could include other stuff into his diet. Awful I know, but when he as around 3 years old and asked what certain things were, like fish for example, I'd say " Oh it's just chicken that tastes slightly different" Didn't work, he'd often come back at me and say " I want chicken for dinner, but not the type of chicken you gave me yesterday."
I have posted and FB'd 2 of your links. Thank you very much for warning me that the summaries you included would have been duplicate content if I had posted them as is. I made the necessary modifications to avoid that problem. Very nice hubs!
The other link will be posted when I have enough links for that category. Thanks again!
Halloween, Photo Galleries of Animals, How to Math Hubs, Anything having to do with Religion.
Travel hubs (Good Idea Hollie Thomas!!!)
And any and all other subjects of interest.
And here is a new one! Nominate a Hubber. If you know of a profile that is generally confined to one niche and that has lots of awesome articles, I would like to hear about. And, yes, you can even nominate your own wonderful self.
And here is a mini-FAQ that I will periodically re-post so that folks don't have to plow through this entire thread to find out what is going on:
I am looking for hub links to post on my blog. I might even post a profile link occasionally.
Email me the hub link. Do not post hub link here. However, feel free to nominate a hubber via this thread.
Hubs must be of high quality. The only exception to this rule is if the hub happens to be one of mine.
Please include a unique summary with your hub link.
Any hub that I post will also be facebooked.
You may assume that I am open for business 24/7. The only exception will be if I start to get a backlog and post a temporary “STOP” on this thread.
You can access the blog via the “W” located near the top-left of my profile page.
Hey, paradigmsearch - If that one (not yet implemented) was the third one I sent you, I would like to withdraw it for now. I will probably resend it at a later date. Thank you so much for the links to my ghost stories!
The hummingbird saga had such a miserable, awful, terrible ending...
The thing even turned out to be a front door to even more miserable, awful things happening. It was as if the incident was trying to warn me of all the other true badness and evilness that was about to come.
If there ever was something that would make me believe in bad karma, the hummingbird incident was it. As such, I have deleted all blog and hub text referencing it.
Oh my goodness! That is so sad. I was genuinely impressed with the way you reported all of it, even up to and through the tragic ending. So sorry to hear there was other bad stuff afterwards. Good and bad both seem to occur in waves sometimes, don't they? I would have thought you would have attracted "good karma" just on the basis of the tender, compassionate way you observed and reported on the mama bird and her nest. Maybe the bad stuff later was a test of some kind?
Well, folks. I've rediscovered my old Twitter account. What with my having zero followers, I can tweet the account to my heart's content without being guilty of spamming. It will still post those lovely backlinks on my Twitter profile page. If the hub link is good enough to post on my blog and good enough to post on Facebook, then it is good enough to post on Twitter.
So, for the next few days, I will be twitting away... I will tweet all previous hubs and all new hubs going forward.
There have been some other discussions of pagerank in the forums. I didn't understand what it was for a long time. (I don't want to burst any bubbles. I was a wee bit sad when I learned this, but it's still good information to know.)
Seems like every hub I'm visiting today has a google chrome ad or a google adsense ad. What's up with that.
Also, I have a twitter question. Every time I twit, a number shows up next to the pop-up screen tweet button. The number ranges from the positive 90's all the way down to red negative numbers. What do it mean? I have yet to find the answer when plowing through the twitter FAQ's, so I thought I would ask here.
There are the usual spammy types "nude pics of Jennifer" Which I'm sure you have avoided. And, then there are various political groups which you would not normally associate with. Also, and this is my experience and not everyones, even when my tweets have been locked, I found a Conservative MP had somehow overcome the locked situation and was following me, without permission. As was the serious fraud squad. I found this worrying.
Your making me aware that it was possible to block followers quickly enabled me to figure out how to do that. Just being made aware of the existence of a capability is often all that is needed. Your post also led to my quick discovery of how to block followee's tweets if/when they get too prolific. Thanks, again.
You're welcome Paradigmsearch. I'm afraid, in life, I do appear to attract some funny types, which leads me to believe that this can happen to any of us. Forewarned is forearmed as my mother always says.
I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a...
In reviewing my traffic sources recently, I noticed that I was getting traffic from a site called traffup.com, which I had never heard of before. I went to the site and signed up for it to see what it was all...
hey, I wrote a nice hub recently linking my hub to a fantastic hubber related to my topic. Though I thought it was a great honor, it made that hubber mad. Is linking a hubber occassionally bad ettiquette???
Now, not before, when you place a link, you have a choice to click rel=nofollow so that search engines ignore it. So in future hubs that you write or if you want to go back and edit, do not check this box for links to...
"Paranoia" must think some of you, and honestly, I used to think the same. I didn't even believe that this was possible, even though Google mentioned that they have ways to detect link spamming. But the...
