    This post was made by LiveWithRichard on another thread. 


    I'm aware the other thread is not monitored by staff and I do feel Richard's experience is worth investigating, for all our sakes!  He's an experienced blogger so is likely to know what he's talking about.

      Thanks Marisa... Simone made a post earlier letting us know that we can allow our Zzz'd hubs to be featured on our profile pages...  this will allow them to be indexed through our profiles.  She also warns that allowing this 'may' have negative consequences.  Since HP has provided ZERO proof of these negative consequences, I've made the switch. 

      I have been working hard to get my content more social mentions and Jacharless (James) has come up with a great idea in this thread http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/104364 

      Of course this is just a start, but you connect that FB Branded page to your HP Profile where you can edit the FB link.  Of course this is only important if you want to keep your personal FB segregated from this place.  You can also link that Branded page to a Twitter account but you will have to manually post to G+...  MY Hubpages profile is linked to my branded FB page which is linked to my Twitter account which links to my G+ which I have used to claim authorship back here on HP.... big circle and not even sure if it will make a difference but its better that I do something than wait for HP's game plan...

        Richard, I understood your post to be about Hubs that were not Zzz'd?

          The post you linked to up top was about all my content that was not Zzz'd... I theorized that the noindex that was placed on my idled hubs was leaking to all of my content as a consequence.  I posted screenshots that showed my hubs were showing up as 'related hubs' in other hubbers pages but my original content was nowhere to found. 

          Paul E. showed me today that they are being found with the exact same search I made 'site:profilename.hubpages.com' but this was not the case 2 days ago.  I have fetched my content manually through webmaster tools, created the social loop explained above, and made the adjustment on my profile page to allow idle hubs to be featured, thus indexed. 

          I think I need at least a couple weeks to make any conclusions on how all this is going to affect my content here but I will be closely monitoring traffic and social mentions.  I have completely avoided any backlinking, I'll let that happen as natural as can be, and it makes little sense to use other methods such as guest posting, forum, and blog commenting for individual hubs.  There is just not enough time in the day for this. 

          Other suggestions made by Paul E make sense as well and some are just a matter of taste such as the lead in with a picture.  For me, as an experienced searcher, when I go to a page I want to see right away if the content is relevant to what I'm searching for.  The picture is just fluff and it though it only takes a millisecond for me to scroll down, I get an immediate impression of what is to follow.  I prefer a lead in with content with a picture to the side.  Breaking up longer text module into smaller ones may help as well.

          @Pearldiver  Taking advantage of the new Ratings module might be of help with your Poem hubs by adding the new 'Ratings' module immediately after your final text module.  The 'Ratings' module will be crawled as a 'Rich Snippet' and can possibly give you a boost in the SERP's.  The 'thumps up or down' is just for internal ranking and has no affect on Google.

    Good On You Guys!

    I really appreciate that others whom I consider to be highly respected, have similar concerns and opinions that are un-fudged and support the level of practical and realistic common sense, that I had previously found as being one of the most beneficial reasons for writing here..

    I really struggle with understanding the logic of certain others, when the ink that their logic is written in, is clearly, by everything I have learned in my life, substantially smudged!  sad

    So... genuinely.... thanks for your efforts.  smile
