I just had a text link snipped on one of my hubs. The hub is about making ornaments out of blown out eggs. The link was to a hub about making paper beads. I had actually learned about making paper beads through that...
I knew it couldn't be that good forever, but I am concerned that it's Healdove that seems to be getting hit.
I have been writing on HubPages for 5 1/2 years. I have had a great week this past 7 days, and I was just reviewing my lifetime earnings. Going strictly by HP Ad Program earnings, this past week was my best week ever,...
A few days ago, I noticed that a lot of people were talking about changing from HP Ad Program to Google AdSense. I had tried that a few years ago, but switched back pretty quickly because I earned better with HP....
One again, I have fallen victim to the whims of Google. My top earning article is responsible for half of my total views over my HP career. It was the first to be HubPro edited. It was the first to be moved to a niche...
For me, Healdove, Spinditty, Petdelpful, Dengarden and Toughnickle seem to be doing well. Owlcation, Reelrundown, Skyaboveus, and Soapboxie are just OK. Delishably, Holidappy, and Wanderwisdom have not made much of a...
Almost without fail, when a hub of mine is moved to a niche site, the views increase. I suppose this makes sense; HP created the niche sites to escape from that "content-farm" label that Google had put them...
Over half of my 47 hubs have already been moved, and every hub I've submitted (until now) has been accepted. With the new policy allowing us to submit one hub every two weeks, it's not SO bad. Still, I'd like to see if...
I'm guessing I'm not the only one seeing these black Editbot icons on my account page. This time, even when I click on the icon and view the changes, the icon does not go away. I think that, at least most of these, are...
It seems Editbot is at work again. Had several little fixes, almost all in comments.
There have been reports of a strange bearded man sighted in my neighborhood.
I have seen everyone saying how great Flipboard is at increasing traffic. I remember a similar experience I had when first using Reddit. Back then, I got high traffic numbers, but not much extra money. Are high traffic...
I remember when people used to ask this in relation to the traffic they'd get with a newly published hub. The reason for my question has more to do with niche sites. Do you think it's better to publish on a weekday when...
I've been writing hubs for almost 5 years now, and I've seen some ups and downs. At one point my traffic went to zero. I became so discouraged that I didn't sign in for six months, but I left my hubs here. When I...
This is the first time I've gotten one of the infamous emails. They love my hub, but it needs a little work.So, the issues they mentioned were Text Formatting, Spelling/Grammar and under Other Issues, making sure the...
Because I had a few lenses on Squidoo, I have two HP accounts. If I want to move those former lenses to my regular account, can I publish them immediately after I delete them from my second account?
I think it would be great if there was a "Site" column on the My Account page, so we could see at a click which hubs are on which niche site, and which ones are still on HubPages. My hubs are now spread over...
This issue has been going on for a couple of weeks now, that I have not been able to pin a hub from that niche site. I have heard that others are having this same problem with this and other of the niche sites. Is there...
I know that there is no "average" amount of time, but I am just curious. I see plenty of old-timers here who have that accolade. I have been here over 4 years, and I am about a third of the way there.
With all the snipping that's been happening to hubs prior to their moves to niche sites, I was surprised to see a hub on Bellatory today that has 8 Amazon capsules.Now, the products are all relevant to the hub, but no...
I hope Robin will come by and comment on this one. I have been going through all of my old comments and deleting any that don't add anything to the conversation, but some of my hubs have a ton of very useful and...
I was just going through some of my hubs, deleting irrelevant comments, as has been suggested. When I came to one of my hubs that had been moved, I found that I was unable to change the reader comments, although I can...
I just found a site that has some of my hubs on some other writer's hubs. It looks like it is all scraped content to me. http://www.toknowthings. com/
I wish I could exclude Q&A when I want to view hubs while signed in. Also, you can only see 5 hubs, and they are always the same. I wish there was some way they could rotate the hubs on the front page more...
I started a Pinterest account about two years ago. I pinned some of my hubs, without much hope of getting anything out of it. Now Pinterest is running a close second to Google in my traffic sources. Have you tried...
As many of you are probably aware, California is in a record-breaking drought right now. Yesterday, at about 2:30, I started hearing airplanes continually taking off from the small airport near my house. I knew this...
I know a lot of hubbers have had bad experiences at Reddit. I have too. Many subreddits have moderators that will remove any link to HubPages. If anyone is interested in trying again to promote their hubs on Reddit,...
I never have before, but in the past week I have made 6 separate sales through Amazon. Just wondering if anybody else is having this experience. Maybe it's just a fluke.
I have been at HubPages since December of 2011. Today I passed 100,00 views.
My traffic had been picking up in a gradual manner. I was happy with it. Suddenly yesterday one hub got almost 400 hits, it had been holding at just under 100 per day, which I thought was good. My total traffic is at an...
http: //zezd.com/It is a travel site, so if you have any travel articles you may want to check there.
In the forum the religious posts have been separated from the rest of the posts, and it is so nice. In the answers section it is still dominated by religion. I would love to be able to participate in the Q&A without...
A high percentage of those who apply to hop hubs for pay on Mechanical Turk are turned down because they do not pass the qualification test. Any hubber can hop hubs if they want to (unpaid of course), but HP may adjust...
For the past couple of days, when I look at traffic sources, I'm seeing -2 from Hubpages, Pinterest and Stumbleupon. -1 from several other sources. Is this happening to others, and does anyone know what it means?
I have no idea if this is a good number, but it seems like a milestone to me. I hope the second 50,000 doesn't take as long.
I noticed that the Amazon products I've chosen for my hubs are not showing up. Is this a known issue? I'm using the latest version of Foxfire.
I have this old ad for a concert, Newport 69. I think it was a newspaper insert. I'm just not sure how the rules apply to this. Anybody got a clue?
They haven't been updated for over 24 hours now.
I don't even know if this is for real or not, but I found this link on the internethttps://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petiti … t/1wrvtnglDoes anybody know anything about it?
I don't really know much about webmaster tool, but 20 of my hubs are getting 410 errors. What should I do?
OK, I've definitely been google slapped. On all of my best performing hubs, which have been steadily gaining views, I have 0 google views for the last 3 days. A search for the exact title of my hubs returns nothing. I...
For the last couple of days when I try to use the title tuner, it spins for a while, then tells me that "something went wrong"
I love the new profile page, it looks better, I like that you can choose which hubs to feature. One thing I miss about the old set-up is that I could see at a glance which of the people I'm following had recently posted...
I, for one, and mystified by how they choose which hubbers to put in this section. The ones on my page seem to have little in common with me. Not that they are bad, I just don't see why HubPages thinks readers who like...
I heard a story about this on NPR a long time ago. Some of them were fun, some sad or touching. Why not give it a try?
If you do, how is it affecting your community?
Have you lost your home, your business or your job. How are you coping?
This hub of mine was Hub of the Day when I had been a member of HubPages for only 6 days. I got plenty of praise for it, and it was quite popular around Christmas time. I really like it, and I like the title of it too....
They've fixed the Q&A section so you can reply to answers, when you reply to a forum post it follows the post you're responding to, I think they should change the comment section at the end of hubs so they follow...
I wish that when you hit the reply button under a comment, that the reply would show underneath that comment, instead of at the bottom of the page. If you have a lot of comments at once, sometimes it's hard to keep...
