Seeing more poetry than articles in Hubfeed?

    Maybe it's a coincidence or maybe just me but it seems that since this QAP transition, I've seen more poetry than ever. I admit that I tend to write more poetry to keep publishing when I don't have time to put together a "stellar hub." wink But I wonder if something else is happening. I'm actually enjoying the selections. They are obviously getting featured so I guess all is well for poetry on HP. Thoughts?

      Between the stricter standards and the fact that informational articles are being plagiarized, I think poetry seems like the safest thing to publish.

        Makes sense, PHILLY, I bet that's a factor.

        Poems are also plagiarized as well. I just filed a complaint with a site about my most popular poem, they removed it ASAP!

          So sad to hear, afraid to check mine.

      So you noticed it too, shhhh, its a secret, but the Poets are about to take over HP, then America, and then the World.   Remember, shhhh.   No one can know.    smile

        In a world full of madness, poetry rules.

          Poetry does rule!!!  There is a way to even make a poetry hub "evergreen" by incorporating a poem with other related information, great photos, imagery and videos too to enhance.  People are drawn to poetry as they can relate to the power of the dramatic words used to express much no doubt.

        Okay guys, so it's not just me. Let's enjoy it, shall we. Shhhhh.

    I've taken my informational articles to another site all together.  The payout is lower and the traffic is a bit better.  My poetry will remain here though, as the poetry community seems to be blossoming.

    I think many that write informational articles are going elsewhere now that the new standards are in effect and traffic is down. I am not seeing as many new articles written anyways. I miss the new stuff.

      I hope to see some new stuff, too, Barbara Kay.

    People need to stay positive and look at some of the old-timers such as Jimmy the Jock, Habee, and more. Traffic goes up and down, but over time it will rise. This is the best site to be around, and the standards reflect that. Why would anyone want to go to another site that doesn't expect high quality?  And about poetry, mine does fine. Mine is about 1/3rd ( a bit less) of my nearly 300 hubs. I try to come up with search friendly titles. Almost all of my poems are featured, as are my hubs. It just takes revision. :-)

      I agree with you, Victoria Lynn. My stats are similar (knock on wood). We need to practice patience.

        Yes, janshares! I'm sure all sites have their ups and downs. HP is great. We just need to keep writing good stuff and go with the flow!

    I've been seeing a lot more poetry in my feed because one of my "followers" seems to be constantly 'sharing" other writers' poems.
    ...no offense to the poets or the sharer, but I skip over pretty much every one of'em as I have very little interest in poetry.

      True dat, FatFreddysCat, a lot of them are shared.

        Ditto here - I love our poets, but some of the sharing is redundant.  It would be great to have more traffic for our wonderful poetry here.
