Is Infobarrel dead?

    Some years ago, infobarrel was competing with hubpages. In fact some articles there ranked better, just of recent I noticed that non of these articles on infobarrel found in search engine. Is this a natural death or what?

    Since you posted this, I went ahead and took a look at the site. At the top of one page was a new article written by me and scraped by someone called Salto. Not one word was changed, and he even stole my photos.
    If this is Infobarrel´s usual policy (to publish stolen content) I can see why they are doing so poorly. Since they are publishing stolen content Google can shoot them and put them out of their misery.

    Of all the barrels, I prefer the cracker.

      I prefer sweet taters, grown in a barrel. Crackers get stale in a barrel.

        Surely you've heard of Cracker Barrel? Or Crackle Barrel as my kids used to say.

          Yes, when I lived in Chicago there was one just down the road. It has not spread here, but we do have McDonalds, of course.
          Everyone, everywhere has McDonalds.

      Based on those numbers, I guess I am not going to worry about my stolen hub.

    I haven't been active on info barrel for years.  Doesn't sound like I've missed anything.

    They're all dead.

    Except one.

    So what I'm hearing is that it's absolutely pointless to start writing on infobarrel?

    And for anyone interested in Relache's stats, here's the source links.
    Hubpages:

    Infobarrell:

    (Sorry for the double post!)

    It means that infobarrel writers efforts were wasted just like that. What a pity!

    I wrote 2 articles over there. I guess I should save them, so I can put them on Hubpages when Infobarrel goes down.
