Made a really bitch'n post today I did. Location to remain nameless. I even included a really bitch'n picture.
I was so proud.
I eagerly told G+. I equally eagerly gazed at my Real-Time. "Right now 0 active users on site."
Facebook was next. "Right now 0 active users on site."
And then, with trembling fingers, Pinterest. "Right now 0 active users on site."
Tumbled it? Tweeted it? Linkdn? "Right now 0 active users on site."
Hired a plane with a banner stringing out behind it. "Right now 0 active users on site."
Contacted CNN and Foxnews. "Right now 0 active users on site."
Tattooed it to my forehead. "Right now 0 active users on site."
The purpose of this OP? None really. Just messing around on a Sunday morning. If my adventure does get any unusual flurries of traffic, I'll post an update. After all, encouraging news is always a good thing.
Don't forget Stumble Upon... That has actually brought readers to my hubs.
LOL! now that really made me laugh! Thanks I needed that! it was the plane banner that started me off, I could just imagine it! thanks para!
I bet it's because it's Sunday. Hopefully, it will get hits later. It is gorgeous here on the east coast, nobody searching.
I also posted my gem on "B" (and put message at top letting them know it was from my own website).
Went to read some connections post. I'm reading one and "B" suddenly redirects my browser to a gaming website (as in gambling). I immediately closed the tab. The garbage just never stops over there. No wonder I can only stand them long enough to make only one post per day there.
I've quit for awhile at "B." They are out to teach me too much patience. I keep getting 504 messages over there. The site drives me nuts.
Yep, I flunked that course big time, too. And obviously it's really the main reason why I can only stand that site in small doses. I also keep noticing active posters who suddenly cease activity. Not banned accounts, just abandoned accounts.
I've noticed the 11 hour HP stats delay. That's not a complaint. I think in this case, no news is good news.
oh wow - i hope your messing around brings you some active users haha
Nah, I'm unloved. Haven't had my tummy rubbed in ages.
Real funny! You're loved in HubPages, buddy! All the brilliant, twisted, and convoluted blabber that you do around here just increases the flock of admirers ---- me included. Heheh!
I had an issue about spam a few days ago, so I got out of the site. Seeing the site bombarded by a spammer continuously for weeks on end made me throw in the towel. (Well, to their credit, it's gone now). PAA posts are being indexed by Google, but not fast enough. It takes a few days, by my reckoning. But if it is a republished post, PAA posts doesn't stand a chance with the bigger portals. It doesn't get indexed highly, if at all.
All 11 were from "B", which Google hates. So, figured nothing to lose and worth a shot. Looks like another failed experiment on my part. Oh, well. Only labor was gambled. And I even had some fun in the process.
The B articles are indexed by Google. I used to repost my B articles in PAA, but the latter is not found anywhere near the G ladder. So I stopped after reposting about 50 posts. Google too, was de-listing duplicate contents a few weeks back. I saw several of mine thrown out of cyberspace.
Any idea when and what I'll be paid for my illustrious 170 in-house May views?
Payments have started, as some PAA friends have already gotten theirs. Yours may come in a day or two. The CPM is rather low; well, it was a month ago. I have 6 articles in FOK ( a sister site, part of the Trinity) and got paid around a dollar for three months. The 170 views would not fetch you a big sum....maybe a few pennies.
p.s. views for May will be paid in June. I think, yours will be paid end of June.
Whatever it is, I'll duly report it in my hub so people can do the math.
Oh, yeah! I look forward to that. In it's heyday (last year), before the Google debacle, the CPM was real high. It started to crumble down after that. It is now restructuring itself by coming up with a new mix of advertisers. Meantime, they need writers who would religiously write for them to keep it going.
The site is A-ok with me (until that spam attack), since I never really expect to get great sums of money from any site, even with Bubblews. To be honest about it, I get more money from iwriter than anywhere else. But if I earn from offline sources, I stop writing altogether and enjoy my non-writing moments. I just read, bum around, and take things easy.
I look forward to your updated hub re PAA.

Perhaps someone on the Hub staff can answer that. By active user, I meant a person that has logged in within 30 days.Alternatively it would be interesting to know how many hubs are published on one day.I'm just curious.

Has anyone noticed GA Realtime has gone screwy today? Seems to be lots of referral spam.

Hi there,I'm not sure if this has been suggested before, but wanted to mention it.With the rising popularity of Google+ and the upcoming SEO refocus on social sharing and authorship, are Hub Pages considering adding Google+ +1 buttons and counts to hubs? I'm a big Google+ user and share my hubs...

Hi everyone,Since Google's updates these past couple of months, I've noticed a significant traffic drop (about 20%). Every time I gain some traction and hope, it's a case of going back two steps again. I'm sure I'm not alone! I thought it might be a good idea to start a healthy discussion here to...
