I searched for stats regarding how many active Hubbers there are, and I was surprised to see that someone posted 13 months ago that there were about 97,000 more Hubbers than HubPages stats list today. I have notices some Hubbers have left for various reasons, but I didn't realize so many left over the past year. Did I get something wrong?
sort by best latest
I have to say that I am still quite irked about the Hub Idle policy that they have tried to rebrand as "Featured" Hubs. Some of my best written most informative Hubs are unfeatured (aka idled) from time to time. Does not make sense.
I agree on that point - I know they were doing it to appease the Google gods ;) but it still is aggravating. I've only had it hit a couple of my hubs - ironically "featured titles" that HP picked in the first place! LOL
I still don't get what causes a Hub to be unfeatured (idled)? I understand HP's concerns about keeping quality content on their site listed in Google, but it seems as if popularity is the real measure that they use rather than writing quality.
Writers are getting discouraged. There are plenty of other places to write.
Good points! A great deal of one's satisfication at HP has to do with their goals. I like to make money, but my primary purpose to learn about and write about topics that I am interested in. The problem is that many of those are not popular and...
Thanks fort the confirmation Goody. I will check out your Hub. I wonder if HP management is having second thoughts about some of the changes they've made over the past year?
Rock_nj, Today we actually gained 4 fellow hubbers. We will see if that's because of the warning issued earlier today with issues with the traffic data collection over the last 10-12 hours, causing the hub traffic statistics to be under reported.
