Hubpages seems to have been blocked there as a spam site - anyone know why?
I tried adding a bookmark, and it will only let me save it as private, not public.
Its because many people use hubpages to spam with and im talking lots! so some social bookmaring sites have blocked! its nothing to do with us..!!
A way I get round this is to create a blog at blogger quick n free and then leave those hubs or what ever else you want!!
just a thought!!
If they've had a sudden influx of lots of URLs from HubPages, they may have blocked the site. That's happened on a variety of social bookmarking sites in the past.
Here's what Mister Wong has to say about spam, http://www.mister-wong.com/terms/#paragraph_8
I'd read that, and I've definintely not spammed - I have about 5 hubpages bookmarks out of 400 or so.
Will it unblock in the future?
Hi - what do you mean by leave the hub on a blogger? Sorry to be thick!
You post links or even blog posts about your hubpages, I usually do both as you can write some extra stuff about your hubpages that you didn't quite get to write actually on your hubpages...treat it like a review of sorts or fun little advertisements for your hupage articles.
Blogger.com has a good page rank, so if you post quite regular to a blogger blog for awhile it'll show up in the search results for whatever you write.
Okie cokie Londongirl!
very sound advice above....quickly set up a blogspot page, and then swing through all your hubs and use the "blog this" option - you can also add your hub rss feed or perhaps even of other hubbers you enjoy.
Then swing through all the social bookmarking pages and either bookmark each entry (as they have a n unique page) or the blogs main domain. (you can use toolbars like socialize this to automate the submission process)
You will now also now be able to join topblog lists which are great promotional tools (ive made it to number 1 in google for topics in under 2 hours using this method (unrelated to hubs) )
You will gain multiple backlinks in less than an hours works
Just a FYI. Propeller.com is another social bookmarking site that has banned hubpages for the same reason.
Thanks for the update. I had just signed up for Mister Wong not too long ago too. Darn.
Im totally new to this whole game of generating traffic and I've been reading a lot of out of date information.
*sigh* oh well.

I am wondering if these different sites that host articles (like hub pages, squido, xomba, triond, etc.) are better for certain types of writing and other sites for other writing types. If one were to write something...

IzzyM and I have been chatting about backlinking, and disagreeing on what's the best way to go about it. She's been spending hours backlinking her Hubs on social bookmarking and backlinking sites, because she feels...

Most of us want to get traffic into our terrific hubpages. However, simply putting all your links into social bookmarking sites may actually decrease your traffic. Why? Your pages, or site gets banned, your social...

I was wondering how often a hub should be social bookmarked and if my internet history is deleted i do not know which hubs I bookmarked. I don't want to be considered a spammer. How many hubs do you guys bookmark...
