        Do you link to your personal blog from your hubs?

        2 years ago

        When I had a health and nutrition blog and I linked to articles on it from my hubs it seemed that my Google rankings actually went down. So I'm a bit dubious about doing it now with my new strength training blog, but I...

        I'm planning on starting a website in the New Year but don't know which hosting company to go with. Hostgator is often recommended but I just read that FutureQuest is really good. Which hosting company do you use for...

        Will too many comments from the same person affect your rankings?

        3 years ago

        One of my hubs has a huge amount of comments (questions) from the same person, and I'm just wondering if this could cause my Google rankings to drop. The reason is that the name of this person is on there such a lot of...

        Deleted hub

        3 years ago

        I just re-wrote my coffee hub and deleted the original. The new one is very different (hence the deletion rather than a simple re-write) but it does contain some material that is identical to the original. So does...

        3 years ago

        I just wanted to ask any UK members a quick question about your Paypal payments. They come through in US dollars and you have to convert this to GBP. Now they have a new site layout I can't see how to do this, but...

        Page views up; earnings down

        3 years ago

        Over the past few weeks my page views have been substantially higher than they were before that, but strangely my earnings have actually been significantly lower. So when you work out the earnings per 1000 views it has...

        Accidentally clicked one of my own ads.

        3 years ago

        I just clicked one of my own ads by accident. Has anyone ever done this? Do you know if I will get an instant ban or is there a degree of tolerance to this? Surely it happens occasionally to many people. Am a bit...

        Usage of OTRS photos on Wikimedia Commons

        3 years ago

        Does anyone know anything about using photos on Wikimedia Commons that are listed as OTRS? On the photo page it says to confirm permission by leaving a note on the OTRS noticeboard. But when you go to the noticeboard,...

        Is it ok to mention potential earnings in a hub title and content?

        3 years ago

        I just wrote a hub on making money with HubPages but wanted to make sure it's ok before publishing. I know you are not supposed to mention what you are earning on HP, but is it ok to use titles like 'How To Earn $1000...

        It's encouraging to see that my traffic has been picking up recently, and my best performing hub has today broken the 100 barrier for the first time, achieving 105 views in the last day. My combined total is just 210...

        3 years ago

        I had several hubs ranking in the first 50 for their respective keywords in Google, but they have all suddenly disappeared. That's not just dropped down but gone completely. My traffic has gone from 200 - 250 views per...

        I'm in the process of updating all my hubs, and one of the things I've done is to make sure they are all at least 700 words long, which they now are. My latest update is how intermittent fasting can help with weight...
