Just achieved 100,000 hubpages views, thanks to all those who dared to follow me, to read and share any of my articles here. This article is for us all, and hopefully new comers can learn a great deal from it as well.
The possibilities are endless
I'd rate this potential for HP to shut down at a 1,000,000 - 1 odds chance and in favor of this true writers network staying alive, doing well, and breathing out better stats as the years continue to progress. Actually truth be told it all depends on the members here and how our community responds to any online losses in web traffic as a whole.
Like last year for example, what had occurred back then should never ever happen again (we hope not), which was over 100,000+ members here had jumped ship (Quit) and due to the very fact of being afraid when they seen their own web stats and Hubpages traffic numbers plummet. All this madness had occurred back in September 2012, and directly after Google's Last Panda update epidemic and previous to it the infamous Penguin, I titled in a few of my Hubpages community stats hubs I wrote "The pandemic!".
Yes indeed anything is possible, but with all of our cumulative efforts combined, HP can also hit the top of the web potentially in a single night. If we all chose to ban together all of us members in this awesome community, and fought long and hard to keep our viewers coming, members joining (Using link referrals and word of mouth), plus tried every now and then to promote Hubpages for the sake of each other. Then there would be no chance in hell for this network to ever go away, because we are currently still 120,000+ members strong today.
We can all succeed online, but we need to get back to basics, and work smarter as a community of authors & good friends that care
Professional writers never stand down, we keep pressing.....on
I mean with some real pro level writing and upper level promotions even on the ground, and in our towns, cities, neighborhood communities, maybe even make leaflet ad's for our writers network here and all. Yup we could keep this writers inferno of sorts alive, and no matter what, because all in all they built this thing for us writers to achieve true online success. So it's up to us the writer of this community to keep the fires raging here, and in terms of our ability to publish online content, in all actuality Hubpages could be sold off to the highest bidder, but its highly unlikely.
We should never ever back down to some Google updates or whatever the case may be. We are stronger then that folks! and we can put up a fight as a united community that the world cannot compete with, because we are content writers! and no matter our skill levels, experience or pay grade."We have a true voice that gets heard worldwide on the Internet, by global viewers in numbers excessive of 13,000,000 per month."
Yup I said it I love the Hubpages writers network, and all that this community has done for me, and I'm going to keep fighting to keep the flame and torch here alive. So no way do I think in my eyes that HP will ever shut down, but statistically the fear and threat is always present.
We're facing this online, so gear up and never jump ship!
The Hubpages Apprenticeship Program
There is on board this hubpages ship, a online writers aircraft carrier fleet of sorts, that of which is a select team, who've been groomed for such a all out epic battle. They are known as the HP Apprentice Alum (They generally are the ones who win the Hub of the Day). These epic elite writers are capable of replacing legions of faulty, inadequate, or incompetent writers in the 1000's to 10,000's. What is meant by that bold statement is, certain online professional writers have been either taught the master keys to unlock the digital doorways and chambers.
They've also been given the esoteric map to the infamous online SEO treasure chest to unlimited web traffic views that indeed does pore in daily from billions of random web surfers seeking more relevant useful content, and because most search engines especially Google, (The #1 search engine on the planet) ranks only the best top notch high quality content today. (A single pro writer can churn out 10,000,000+ views in a matter of 3 years time or less, and hubpages is arming up sort to speak, by literally training their writing troops, so catch up folks! if you haven't yet worked on your writing ability or skills.)
Surprise is a key! element we do indeed have as writers:
Keep in mind that we are playing with the element of surprise here as writers, and each time we decide to publish yet a single article, one of them may just hit the viral zone. Now imagine if there was a method to the madness where you could be trained to unleash on call a potential viral article (Hub) on a moments notice.
This is where the Hubpages Apprenticeship program has aimed at, and they are doing a brilliant job at strategically positioning such writers today to fight this online battle which will definitely sustain even the slight blows per say, with numbers of inactive members either not publishing, or publishing such poor quality content that much of it isn't getting registered at all when compared to these Elite writers.
The war rages on
So in fact a war is what we are all facing and its that of a digital kind, Google on one side is not only the digital ocean and online seas we have to fend for ourselves, but its also the (key holder) major battleship group sort to speak, where they can shoot their virtual cannon balls at us all, and on their moments notice at the click of a button. However, if we are prepared to sustain such blows by means of having more and more trained professionals and expert SEO style writers here on hubpages, which the move has already been made to make such a thing happen today with the AP program.
I must say that Hubpages does indeed have the greatest digital aircraft carrier the world wide web has ever seen, when it comes to online training centers, weaponry for us writers to master our crafts here, and loads of unlimited potential for network with others in the most responsive and friendly social community as well.
Hence fourth if lets say 50,000 of the worst writers, or average ones here just decided to up and leave the network, well there is actually in place powerful writers who will indeed take up their bandwidth and online slack for sure, and the amazing stats their putting up online does indeed alert Google to back off. This makes the search engines reverse their attacks of shutting down the web traffic to us here, and instead they begin to favor our articles.
This also makes other inferior search engines follow Google's lead by backing down a great deal in terms of hitting Hubpages and their members so harshly due to any writing infringements, content violations, and mainly because our gravy train is not stopping due to having poorly submitted user generated content any more. In fact these talented well trained new age authors of the web, are indeed fully armed with all the knowledge and resources they need to put up the highest quality, pure and uncut content (hub articles) that the web has ever seen in decades.
