Building your Network Online through your E-mail address

Have you seen my e-mall address being used by spammers?

I'm not happy with the way my e-mail address @ Yahoo being used by spammers in order to urge me ordering e-products or lure me to provide additional information.

Perhaps, you, too are tempted to answer them back and get the prizes they've been offering, as they declared you one of the winners of something of this and that, sponsored by this and that, and the list goes on and on.

Unfortunately, I'm not easily tempted by that kind of tirade, even I'm still a newbie in creating my online network.

My Yahoo e-mail address is my most used contact online. There are many purposes as to why I always affix that contact when I'm signing up at the different social networks online.

I am keeping two e-mail addresses, the one that I've mentioned above and the other one is for Google.

That's what I can only maintain and easily access, once I turn on my computer online.

Remember: Even if you have jottings or listings of your activity on your notebook, there's a possibility that it will be lost or your pets, like dogs or cats will have a liking to investigate your hubbing space and distort the arrangements inside your room.

My network online

I am partly motivated by fellow hubber, Ms. Treathyl Fox, to pursue the building of the so-called network while busy writing hubs at HubPages.

Why not expand my coverage online if I want to broaden my horizon and payout as well.

First and foremost, I kept on forgetting my password at, so, I created my own blogging site for the third time. If you'll ask me on how to revive the first two accounts, I don't know how to do it, since I cannot remember those passwords and also my old e-mail address that's been idle for half-a-year.

I cannot concentrate before at online activities, since I was on board commercial ships. Restrictions on the usage of internet were just limited to checking e-mails and news from the Philippines and World news, too.

Other than that, no social activity online, as to check Facebook or Twitter messages and tweets.

So, with my two year hiatus on my profession as a seafarer, since 2010, I was able to join several networks, from social media, survey sites and online writing communities.

Aside from blogging, hubbing came into my life as the last quarter of 2009 was nearing to end.

From then on, the use of my e-mail address has never been put to rest.

If only I can hear it whine, maybe, I will stop the tik-tak staccato of my desktop and android net-book.

If you're familiar with the following sites, you can also add it to your network

  1. Online Writing Sites - include HubPages, Wizzley, Blogger, Technorati
  2. Sharing Sites - Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Multiply, Tumblr
  3. Survey sites - Survey Head, Air Online Survey
  4. Others - Zazzle, Freewebs

I am sticking on these sites as intertwined my network, through RSS (Really Simple Syndication), backlinking and a lot more.

Here's a clear example on how online networks are helping each other to stay on top of the crop.

  • The official sharing sites of HubPages are Facebook and Twitter. Aside from it, you can also link it to your free personal site, like Freewebs, Multiply, Blogger and Tumblr without the danger of being branded as duplicates.
  • If your official e-mail is enrolled at Google AdSense, then, your online activities should also be monitored by this Ads and Payment Program. The good news is that HubPages is also paying us with our published hubs!
  • You can add available templates of (also owned by Google) that will link your activities from Facebook, Twitter, Freewebs or even HubPages.
  • Commercials or ads being offered by eBay and Amazon are also valuable in promoting the content of your sites. By just typing the permalink of your hub or the subject of your article, you can easily associate it with the available products on the said online stores.
  • Facebook has intricate programs in order for you to earn cents, tenths or even hundreds of monetization by just creating pages (let's say for food photos, groups, etc.), commercials and applications that will be informative or important to other users. It is also allowing us to curate all our pages through the NetworkedBlogs. Once your photos or articles go viral (meaning, other FB users -not your mutual friends - can like or share your articles), there's a tendency that an increase in earnings will be noticed through your Google AdSense. You just have to associate your every activity through its available templates and codes.
  • If you've seen my profile @ HubPages, the upper right corner buttons also feature my Google+ affiliation. It is already linked on my YouTube account, Blogger and also here @ HP

Privacy of e-mail address

If a network sends an e-mail needing an affirmation or confirmation of your membership to the site, it has a disclosure that your e-mail address is in safe hands and will never be used to send you spam letters or contents.

I'm just wondering why those spams continue to be delivered in my mailbox.

Everyone of us needs a little privacy when it pertains to our e-mail address.

Here at HubPages, if you want to send e-mail to the main office or contact a hubber, there's always a caution that if you used it for wrong purpose, the system will alert that there's a mistake with what you did.

And if you continually do it, perhaps, your membership on this site is or will be at stake or will be compromised.

      @pringoooals: Thank you for leaving a nice insight on this hub. I wanted to tackle this subject because of the increasing spam letters that I've been receiving nowadays.

      Although, I've been pleading them to stop sending such messages, they're just changing their names and still the same persons kept on disturbing my peace online.

      Great article! I don't like the use of my e-mail by spammers too. The worst about it is that once the e-mail address is in their database it is really hard to switch it off. Wonderful advice on building the Network online!
