I thought it might be fun to see hubbers' different 'traffic stories' since joining. Actual number removed to protect the innocent and respect the TOS. Please add your own! It seems like people have had all kinds of different experiences and I would love to compare and contrast.

This is long, so here's the bottom line: Basically, my problem is I want to build a site around the same topics and keywords I've done well with here on HP, but I don't want to do anything that would damage the work...

"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...
