Has Anyone Looked at the HubPages Directory? Is Your Name There?

    I just found the HubPages Directory and naturally, looked for my name. It says that authors must have published hubs to be listed there but I can't find my name. How do we get added?

      Are you just looking at the first page that shows up on the directory?  Did you click on this?

      http://hubpages.com/directory/173.

      They are indexed similar to an encyclopedia. Aarron-Alan...Alex-Arthur...
      I found your name under Pawpawwrites--penrose

        Thanks Anna Marie. Must have been a brain fog that kept me from seeing that.

          No, it's a weird directory. You have to click on a name close in spelling to your to get to that area.

            Agreed, Beth37. I thought it was just me. At first glance it looks like we have only a few authors. Now that I know the "secret" I feel better.

                  Actually, I've suffered with migraines since I was ten years old. I spent years where my sole focus was how to get more imitrex. Doctors would give me all their samples in addition to my prescription. I took at least one a day to survive... I tried every preventative on the market and nothing worked. Then one day I found out a distant relative had the same problem. She took inderal (propranelol) er. Apparently, I was getting too much adrenaline to the head... this is a beta blocker and it slowed the process. I take that every day and almost never have migraines anymore. This was a miracle in my life if you had known how I had suffered. Have you tried everything out there already? Please feel free to email me if you'd like to discuss it privately. smile

                    Sorry to hear that you suffered so much with the migraines. Actually, I can control mine most of the time with over the counter medicines. Mine are definitely not the debilitating kind you have, thankfully. And thank you so much for the offer to discuss it privately. So very sweet of you. Mine were mostly triggered by working in the corporate world and putting my nose to the grindstone. I used to blame it on my boss who was a complete um, well, nevermind.

          No problem.  It took me a minute to figure it out.  I looked for my name, and thought...wait, she's right...my name isn't here either...then I looked more closely.  I tend to rush through things.

        Like most things, once you know how the directory works it is easy to find a name. So I'm okay now on this, although, I do think it would be more impressive with a long list of authors or an Alpha character to head up each group. IMHO of course.

      Yes. I went to the authors page and saw nothing to click. So I went to the URL which Anna Marie put in for you - again I saw nothing to click. So I went back to the authors page and clicked the name closest to mine. There I was!

        Although it seems obvious, once you understand, there could be some kind of explanatory note.  ie, " We  currently have more than xxxxxxxx active hub authors.  The listings here  are alphabetical, similar to encyclopedia volumes. If you are looking for a particular screen name, Click the appropriate section listed below."
        Many, even most, of the people finding this  index page think that these are ALL of the active hubbers. Maybe even adding the word "to" or "through" to each entry would help.

          The Examiner-1posted 3 years ago in reply to this

          How about 'click on the names on this page which are closest to yours' - or something shorter.; or simply 'Forward' on the bottom right corner of each page.

      lovebuglenaposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      When you go to the directory all the names you see is actually a list of range names. So to find your name you have to look at the range into which your name fits and click on that and it will bring up the list of the hubbers that fall into that range and your name should be there. Not sure that I like this idea but perhaps there are too many hubbers to do it otherwise.

        I doubt it very much.  It doesn't indicate that it is a listing from "all to app" kind of thing.

          Hi again Mary. Yes, one would have to look very closely to find people. I wonder why it is condensed like that?

          I'm hoping your family is doing better now. Was worried about things after reading your hub TIA or Stroke. Another friend, Hawaiianodysseus wrote about his TIA experience in Seven Miles of Gratitude. Very scary stuff.

          PegCole17posted 3 years ago in reply to this

          Goodness gracious, Cheeluarv. I wish I knew the formula to get 100 scores. I'd be all over it. The hubber scores seem to vary with many things like quality of the hubs as decided by the powers that be and the people who read and vote on hubs; by the ratio of followers to how many people you follow; to the traffic your hubs bring in from outside of HubPages. For example, do people search for certain things and your hub pops up in the results? Stuff like that.

          Read a lot of other people's hubs and you will see a vast difference in author's style and subject matter. Comment when you are moved by something you've read. Follow only those hubbers whose work interests you. Respond when people comment, not like I did here waiting so long to answer your nice question. Sorry about that.
          All the best and I hope this helps.
