HubPages' staffs seem reluctant to come to the forums.
"Request to HP STAFF to address the RS Ads Issue"
Silence is Golden. . .
The "Related Seaches" Scandal continues...
This is TPTB. . .
"Of course, Simone's hints earlier in this thread (that the site is struggling to find the money for QAP) might have been misleading. Those ads might be funding the staff's taste in fast cars. Then I could get outraged and envious at the same time."
(I know the troll will ask further clarifications. Mr. Will Apse, er, the CEO & God of 'Terror Ports of the Tetra Babinsacs, continue'. Lol.)
I am sorry to be so bothersome but it is so important that I speak to the person with the Tetra Babinsacs.
Could you help me?
The God of the Terror Ports of the Tetra Babinsacs will help me. He is like terrier. You send him in hole. He always come up with rat.
The true God of the Tetra Babinsacs ain't afraid of no thing. He certainly ain't afraid of no girl.
By the way, my low score seems to pique your interest in ways that I do not understand.
lol... you don't have a low score. It's just 4 pts lower than mine thereby being the only thing I have to cruelly mock you with.
I thought you just liked slumming...
I am off to find a very ancient stone.
So I googled tetra... whatever... and this is what I came up with as the number one google search.
"Related Searches" Scandal: Why Is HubPages still SILENT?

Your hubber score is being advertised across google.
"I do not like HP using key words from my hubs this way....I feel my name is on the article and I do not want to be associated with the deceptive practice. It would annoy me as a reader to be sent on this wild goose chase.
So thanks for starting the thread on our behalf......hopefully, HP is thinking about the impact of the "related searches' and will answer in their own time. Sometimes a little noise is a necessity for change."
"The only reason left to write on HP, is that it is a powerful platform and can get you views.
Well, it is a lot less powerful than it used to be.
To be honest, Blogspot is just as good.
Major difference is, you don't need to split earnings.
And no-one puts unrelated RS links on your posts to lure visitors away."
It is happening more quickly than I imagined.
This thread is obviously exerting an immense evolutionary pressure on this previously lifeless rock.
Sheer desperation is forcing it to bend the laws of God and Science and Cooking.
Maybe if you posted smaller rocks... say a pebble maybe, our burdens would be lighter... you wouldn't have thought of that though, being a 94.
I don't understand this thread at all.
...but "Tetra Babinsacs" would be a FABULOUS name for a band.
I can see clearly now. This is not the true God of the Tetra Babinsacs. It is the false god of the Uno Babinsac.
Oh good! I thought I was the only one - on both fronts lol
Isn't it your national holiday today? Shouldn't you be eating hotdogs and rounding up English people to burn?
I worked tonight. Just got off a bit ago... besides I burned a bunch of English ppl yesterday.
Maybe, a little. Monsoon and flood season where I am. No fireworks for anyone for a while...

Well, many know, that I have been wrestling with this "related searches" ads thingy for quite a few days now. I took me some effort to figure it out what it actually is, but I got the answer. I'm finished with the calculations... almost. Here is the final analysis, with solutions:-1) The...

We lost the keyword feature but now a list of HP chosen keywords appears as "Related Searches" in the side bar & at the bottom of Hubs. I believe that these so called "related searches" are actually links to Adsense & HP ads. I daren't click on them on my own pages...

Today, via an email from staff, HP has revealed that"The revenue from the Related Searches ads is not shared"These groups of RSS style adense ads appear down the right side, and the bottom of all hubs, irrespective of whether the ad program is tuned off or on. They first appeared on hubs...

Why do my "related searches" have nothing to do with my hub subject matter?If there is a way to fix this, I would like to know.
