    I'll bet this one doesn't last long-- although the hubs show a great deal of effort and interesting rhetoric.
    You had better go check if, before they disappear

      Wow, 7 hubs in 26 hours, thats impressive.

      Though Rochelle, why do you say that she may disappear, I mean she's been here only 26 hours , why do you feel that way?

      These hubs make perfect sense. I'm quite shocked that you hubbers do not get it. You have to read every third word backwards and skip every other row while standing on your head.

      Deep deep content here... wow hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm hmmhttp://www.freewebby.com/happy-smilies/24.gif

    Poor grammar because of language difference and material may be duplicate content as well.

  4. JamaGenee profile image85
    JamaGeneeposted 8 years ago

    Aren't there sites (Google, for instance) that can translate a non-English-speaking hubber's hub from his/her own language into English?  Is unfamiliarity with English the problem, or is this yet *another* case of throwing unrelated words at a page to get the URL?  Some of this person's hubs are surely dupe content.

    The content in these hubs has been produced by an article generator...definately won't last long...all they do is try to optimize key words to get ad clicks...not even the titles make sense.

    It looks like they were created with an article generator in a language other than English and THEN put through babelfish... so they make even less sense than the usual article generator garbage. *g*

    It certainly did not make any sense but there was one that was thorough although it didn't make any sense, quite a few run on sentences but who am I to judge I ramble when I am tired and have to go back and correct.Lol big_smile

    Just read an article by a hubber, full of usage and grammatical errors but there will people's comments lauding her writing skils instead of providing some constructive criticism. Heck, the hub has a score of 82 yikes Not even a single hub of mine is in the eighties presently roll

    I have seen some people comment as if its a duty tongue

    The internet is polluted enough with spam, bad writing, and clutter.  Hubpages must delete all of this nonsense.

    Life is too short to waste on looking at something like that.

    And now, thanks to the attention we've drawn to them, they're off and running with loads of hits today. 

    Reminds me of an advertiser I used to know that always insisted on his ad being published upside down and in one color while all of his competition posted in normal fashion and 4 colors.  Guess who got the most attention?  Being odd works.

      Rochelle Frankposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      But that's OK-- I agree that they need to be removed, but  I thought there was some entertainment value there.  To me it was a lot more interesting than Indian movie stars.

      If they earn something, it doesn't hurt anyone else. 

      I would not draw attention to anything of immoral or illegal or crass content.   I think it was just someone trying to join in the game without understanding the process--not to mention understanding the language.

    Spring has been here for about 10 days. Deer eating the the sprouting green grass, daffodills blooming yellowly, and blossoms appearing on the fruit trees, and wildflowers growing in the canyons. We are supposed to have  a few inches of snow on Sunday.
    Spring should be back soon (after wrecking some of the flowers).

    Apologies to those of you in the S. Hemisphere.

      Rochelle I had to go up north (1000km's north from where I live in southern Ontario) the last week of February. I had to clear up my uncle's affairs. His lawyers told me that it would only take a day to fly in a day to collect up all his personal effects and then fly home... Three days tops. The plane lands in front of the cabin on the frozen lake drops me off mid morning, by noon it starts to snow and by 6pm there is a few feet of new snow all around and its not letting up. By next morning the plane company radio-d that the plane won't be able to land until the 120km/hour winds die down. we'll be in touch...  I was thinking of inviting the local Yeti-neighbors for poker nights. It took 19 days for them to be able to land again. Me that long without a computer was a nightmare (there was no Internet connection anyway) So you see I'm celebrating the beginning of spring twice as hard... Sorry about hijacking your thread zs

        My heart goes out to you, ajcor, with your Autumn setting in.  After record snow in Massachusetts, and after an ice build-up on my "unsunny" driveway that lasted from about the last week in December until last week, at which time it at least became walkable; I can't help but sympathize with anyone "heading into the horror".  (Of course, maybe your "horror" is not the same as ours, here, in the Northeastern part of the US.) 

        We don't use salt because of the neighborhood's cats and other wildlife; so I just stopped going to the end of the driveway to get my mail about halfway through January.  I didn't want to kill myself and left that task to the men and their good-traction shoes.

        Just the day before yesterday I was able to just walk out to the mailbox (in sandals) and get my mail like a normal person.   smile  What a Winter.  What a horror show.  What a tremendous relief to know it's finally Spring (even if it's - like - 20 degrees out right now.)

    I've heard of article generators but never believed they could "compose" essays all by themselves. Every nook and cranny on board the internet contained ads pointing to some article generator, and these articles contained testimonials too, from "satisfied" users. "Satisfied" users ... ha ha ha ha ha ha!

    The seller repeatedly draws attention as to how one could fill up his/her blog with "content."

    If these "gadgets" do work, I suspect they are programmed to scan the Internet for articles based on keywords forwarded, pick a few phrases from several articles, put them into some sequence that they have been programmed to identify as logical, and then deliver a brand new "article."

    LOL! + smile

    I'm guessing that it's a badly translated article that has been ran through a translator of some sort that's not very proficient at translating Chinese,rather than one that's generated by an article generator.  I'm thinking it's Chinese since the hubber does make a number of references to Chinese names and places in his articles, plus his profile pic appears to be Chinese. The problem with translating Chinese to another language using a translator is that Chinese words are composed of Chinese characters which individually are words of their own. E.g the Chinese word for train is composed of the words "fire" and "car". Since there's no spacing in between Chinese characters in a single sentence, it's going to be hard to code a translator program that's able to tell when it should translate "fire"+ "car" and  when it should translate "train".  Compounded with the problem of handling differences in sentence structures, idioms etc when you're trying to translate a language into another and I suspect what you get would be something very similar to what this hubber has posted.

      Maybe we have discovered their secret . It could be that they are translating from a different language and using some random word generator while crossing their toes and typing. Or drugs.
