    "Apparently HP's stats have been down in order to jazz up the lower pages with the Related Hubs bulls#it. As with the bogus Related Search ads which takes money from the writer's share of views.It's simply another method of getting searchers to leave your article even though you may have more related hubs to direct them to.

    If this keeps up we'll eventually end up with 60% of nothing to show for our work. Egad!"




    What's REALLY happening with all the hubbers' money on this site?

    To everyone reading this - I just got secretly banned for raising my voice (by creating this thread). This is just enough...

    There was no reason that my profile could be banned, except that I raised my voice.

      We have discussed this issue at great length.  I think the related search ads suck.  But we seem to be stuck with them. 

      If saying that got you banned, dozens of us would be banned.

          Yes, he had posting privileges suspended. If it was for bitching about related search ads that would be a mistake to be corrected.  Because bitching about related search ads is a very long tradition around here.

    Well it's because hubbers never really got the RS ads issue properly addressed by the staff and the owners of this site. What you termed as 'bitching' - was actually an expression of truth, and long pent-up frustration.

      It seems pretty resolved to me.  They are going to keep it the way it is.
