Today I was on a conference call with Don Crowther regarding his new product. I have no idea how this guy keeps up with such a fast paced industry, but from what I heard today - he's even sharper than ever.
I've been a huge fan of his for a long time and figured of all the products we Hubbers promote, his is worth a peek.
Check out my hub:
<snipped link - do not promote your hubs in the forums>
I am really excited to think of how many gifted Hubbers among us can put Don's knowledge to use.
And the link got mis-pasted somehow. What a day!
Doesn't look like you've spent much time in the forums, but posting links to your hubs here is against the rules (except if you are looking for feedback on content/formatting, in which case you need to post in the Extreme Hub Makeover forum).
As far as this new product... I hope it teaches people to use HubPages responsibly, and takes note of our rules regarding linking. Otherwise, I'm afraid anyone who takes this fella's advice will be banned, and maybe even blame you for it.
It's the low quality 'gimme instant success' riff raff that usually follow in the footsteps of gurus.
I can personally vouch for Don's credibility at teaching people the right thing to do, and how to use HubPages responsibly. (I don't know about any new program he has, but he's certainly not promoted spamming in the past)
I attended and spoke at one of his seminars about 2 years ago, and it was not encouraging exploitative or irresponsible usage of social content sites like HubPages.
(This is not an official endorsement by HubPages, since we don't do that sort of thing.)
I'm sure somebody like Don Crowther would make it clear in his content what the rules are for sites like HubPages (especially if he promotes HubPages specifically like Kent said).
I actually haven't been around since I started my account several months ago, but I'm a follower of Don's tweets and when I heard of his endorsement of HubPages I gave it a look.
Rest assured that he vehemently discourages spamming and that this thread is a mistake resulting from NOT hearing what he shows people. Had to join Jason in defending against guilt by association here.
Don Crowther? Not a spammer.

I have been in touch with the team concerning a hub of mine that was unfeatured due to the fact that I had only HP traffic and no Google traffic and felt this was not fair because my article had been online for years and had more than 1400 total views.This morning I received the following email...

Yesterday I read a thread that pointed out an HP term pertaining to self promotion. At a quick read over it seemed to suggest that self promotion is banned here. Does this mean social media too or what does it exactly mean...? I read the page the link went to and didn't fully...

The share button (for sharing to the newsfeed) has disappeared from hubs. I've seen other mentions of it too, in the Q&A. Is this a glitch, or is there an upgrade going on that I missed?

After reading HP's excellent social media primers in the help section, I must admit that I feel a little intimidated. It's just not something that comes naturally to me (I've always been more reserved, or 'Salinger-esque' both personally and professionally). Still, I'd like to face this...

A couple years ago in 2011, I had a hub on another account that went up to 5000 views rapidly. Eventually it waned to about 1000-1300 views. Now after a couple years it gets about a few hundred views a day astonishingly. Would that hub be defined as "going viral?" I know it's not...
