A brief response to a fellow hubber

Sacredlilac actually answered my question with creativity, accuracy, and to the best of her knowledge, I only had a few words to share, but I'm glad she located my question there in the Q & A area, and found it interesting enough to answer it.

Flash Poll!

Have you helped a single hubber on hubpages by commenting, following etc...

See results

Here’s my response to her-

I was simply "LOL" (laughing out loud) as I read this hub, but with all seriousness I truly loved it, I also enjoyed your sense of humor you have here on hubpages, and all through out your hub answer. I pretty much knew this because I "Read The Whole Article", actually I read each and every article that interest me on hubpages no matter the length.

I think that your hub you've written is sensational @sacredlilac, and I hope it earns you a hub Know it all contest award, because you scored high in my book on every part of this hub. You also answered my question fully, with integrity, awesome display of great writing skills, know how, in the true spirit of the hubpages sharing community, and honestly to the best of your ability it appears.

I would like to add, the fan following part, in which hubbers can leave juicy message there, and or you can rate that hubbers performance in the community with cool praise icons as well, which helps both parties simultaneously, and thus complete a single function of the sharing factors here on hubpages.

The other part is where we are now able to detect the activities of each member we choose to follow, and receive emails automatically of their latest hub releases if we did not opt out.

There's so many other ways to help our fellow hubbers, here on hubpages, and it might just require a whole series to truly answer, in its entirety.

Attempt to game the system & lose it big time on hubpages

  • All the false decisions, and activities people may tend to make on hubpages always leads their accounts into the worst possible positions, if anything.
  • The only true way up the hubpages success ladder is by being sincere, having knowledge of how the hubpages system works, knowledge of SEO, by sharing with others, by being a real person & original author who cares
  • If you're some silly person who thinks its just a game here, its not, this is a serious writers network, and writing for hubpages is not a joke. So make sure to read all the rules that apply here, in every location you can find, including the terms of service. (link is to a hub from a fellow hubber who admitted to hub violations)

Reading the whole hub is neccesary the system knows

What most hubpages members don't realize is, the "drum roll please'' (One of his favorite lines there in his hub), the hubpages crawlers and bots detect your timing on each page as you've also stated, and so they're a lot smarter than humans in the computing detective services arena.

These highly intelligent programs today, can somehow tell if a person’s cheating the hubpages system, or attempting to, by not reading a hub at all, and by simply leaving pointless quick comments in an all out attempt to gain accolades super fast, or maybe try to increase their hubber score dishonestly, they can even sense your scrolling activities, go figure.

Actually I try to avoid users like that, whom leave the shortest comments, 2 words to 5 words comments, and for good reason, because many of their hubs lack good integrity it seems as well.

      Thanks Eiddwen, I made a great deal of mistakes on this hub, but been extremely busy, and hadn't any time to fix it up, thanks for the signal, and for responding to my hub here.

      It truly means a lot to me, knowing that I don't receive much comments anymore, ever since I started writing for others for a while and took a break from writing for the search engines, but its been worth the time spent for sure, and investment to give back to those who have also helped me since I've been on hubpages.

      Hello @Mekenzie,yes indeed sharing is the key here at hubpages to get the community involved, and to help newer hubbers get the idea of the fact that its not just a place to right generic stuff, and keep it moving.

      We all try to make hubpages a much more pleasant place to have a writing career, its sort of like a big family, and we all are in the same vessel together sort of speak.

      You seem like a very nice person yourself, and for that I will also visit you in return, even if you wasn't I would still repay the favor because you took the time to pay it forward for me. Much love!! See ya soon.

      Hey @LaThing nice to see you've arrived to my hub, and I'm so glad you enjoyed the reading of it, I try to spice things up a bit on hubpages, and this is the reason for this 10 part series, on hub response's to other hubs.

      I like to try my hands at differing techniques, to break up the monotony a little, in my normal hub writing, and at the same time try to share as much as I can what others are doing daily as well here. In due time I'll get to your hubs as well, see ya there soon.

      Great follow up to saredlilac's hub on helping our fellow hubbers.

      Helping other hubbers is one of the things I like most about hubpages. We are able to critique, encourage and leave meaningful comments on each others works. This in turn inspires us to read more from others and learn from their writing style. It also benefits our writing as it broadens us.

      Thank you for your giving heart as you recognize and give praise to the hubbers you value. Voted up and useful.

      Is this even considered a hub.... Hub for a hub, for a question?? lol, just kidding! Great article, now I have to go and read sacredlilac's one. Missed it somehow.

      Didn't know they were timing us reading other's hubs!! Not that I was skipping anything!! ;)

      Anyway, I am a new hubber and I try to grab as much as I can from the fellow hubbers' articles.
