Just wondering because a couple of times when I shared things on RedGage, I got nastygrams from other Hubbers about profiting off their work. I thought it was kind of odd since they were profiting a whole lot more than I was from any traffic to their Hubs from RedGage. They were mad that I was making them money and taking a small cut? Anyway, how do people feel about sharing Hubs on sites that pay people for clicks? I am fine with people sharing my work on these sites, because I can see the forest through the trees, and that forest has Hub views and earnings on it.

It happend around the time when people's page views were dropping due to Google Penguin updates. I think they thought it hurt their Google ranking, but everyone was being affected. In fact, these Google updates make backling more important.
HubPages has no authority over the general internet. If some schmuck from wherever submits my pages on a site, I can't be punished for it, and neither can they.
The wording of the question is a bit misleading. RedGage pay their contributors for views of what they submit - in this case it is a link with a short description of the page the link leads to. Nobody is paid to click the link to a Hub.
When someone from RedGage clicks on your Hub's link, does this view show up on HP? I have had over 270 views on RG but only 9 registered views. And, have you sensed that Google doesn't like RG? I'm on it and not quite sure what to make of it. Thanks
Thanks. That may have been the problem, that the links were on RedGage. But it does drive traffic to Hub, instead of just hoping for Google searches. Also, some of the links to my own Hubs posted on Redgage show up high in Google search resutls.
Echo¨share my stuff, please!
I would never post someone else's content. It was simply a link back to their Hub, which does drive traffic to the Hub.
Don't we all! I often wonder about why some people are so reticent about sharing! I find it so easy to do, provided the Hub is more than average good.
So if someone from RedGage clicks on your Hub's link, does this view show up also on HP? I have had over 270 views on RG but only 9 registered HP views. I'm on RG and not quite sure what to make of it.
GoldenThreadPress I think a lot of people just don't bother to click the links. It's something I mentioned in my Hub about RedGage because it doesn't make sense to me either.
I believe redgage scrambles the links (i think i read that somewhere) but I find that clickthrough from redgage is minimal. I think i've had about 150 page views as a result of clickthroughs from redgage over the last 18 months
As I said earlier, at the end of each hub, there is a "link to this page". Surely HP can disable this if a Hubber wishes their Hub not to be shared. I think calling the rest of us criminals is out of order.
It's just a link back to material someone else publishes. Not the original material or even a paraphrase of it. Just a link. No copyright issue there.
