All Things Now - www.allthingsnow.com is a type of repository that displays the most popular links on Facebook, although it claims to be a search engine that "scans the web for interesting content daily".
I was recently made aware that one of my Hubs was showing up on allthingsnow so I checked it out.
Unlike a Google search result, allthingsnow gives viewers a live window of your site (or Hub page in this case), including active links. I was signed in to HP at the time I found my article on allthingsnow and discovered that I could edit the hub from their window!
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Perhaps someone can explain what type of technology is presented here. I just want to confirm that others viewing my Hub while I am signed on to HubPages will not be able to edit it.
I did find other Hubs on this site and while no one was active, I did have the option to sign in as if I was the author.
Since they wouldn't have access to the HP database of information, they wouldn't be able to allow other users to change your content since they don't have your password.
It's really like an "in browser browser" is the closest I can think of it.
Kind of like the stumble or digg ones or even blogger - you have the site's info at the top but can browse the 'net normally through it.
Thanks for your quick reply QM. It was just a bit unsettling to see a "live" editable hub on a search engine result. I logged out of HP, then went to view it again and it was not editable. Still, it must link to my on-line status somehow. I'm sure there's nothing to worry about, but I'm unfamiliar with the technology

I have three Hubs about the 2015 Sydney Siege. They were all featured. They do not attract a great deal of views as these are about a local event. However, only one of them has been demoted a few weeks...

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.
