    I just discovered Hubpage.com as opposed to HubPages.com. Hmmm...this is not a HubPages website but potentially takes away viewers who don't type the URL correctly...by leaving out the (s). This must take some viewers away who may assume HubPages has morphed into something new.

    Any ideas  and opinions for keeping "HubPages"  dominating the front page...because it looks like the other website is ranking  on the first page right now!

      I would say it needs to be reported to Hubpages asap! It could be trademark infringement.

    This has been going on for a long time. Banking, email and just about any website has been set up to draw people who make typing errors when they go for a URL.  That's why I bookmark and type from bills and other documents when I need to reestablish my bookmarks.

    These are dangerous scams and that is why we have HTTPS.

    Could be worse. Squido.com used to be a porn site so tasteless that even I couldn't bear to look at the splash page when I mistyped. (It's gone now, replaced by some other site attempting to cash in on typos.)


    What's even worse is that scammers have registered 800 numbers that are just one digit off from the numbers that credit card companies ask you to dial to verify your new credit card.

    So, you get the new card in the mail with a big sticker telling you to dial this number to activate your card. You dial the number but accidentally get one digit wrong, and don't realize it. An official-sounding recording answers you, impersonating the credit card company, and asks you to enter the card's 16 digit number. BINGO! You've been had.

    My aunt discovered this the hard way... twice.

    OMG greekgeek...that one about the credit card is a good one to know. It is so easy to dial wrong... so we all need  to be well-rested so we are paying attention when we input numbers...in everything we do!

    So far according to Quantcast this Hubpage site isn't getting a lot of hits...so hopefully just a flash in the pan and gone soon enough.
