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.
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.
HubPages rank on Quantcast = #71, est 17 million US unique views/month.
Infobarrel rank on Quantcast = #29,339, est 50 thousand US unique views/month.
I haven't been active on info barrel for years. Doesn't sound like I've missed anything.
So what I'm hearing is that it's absolutely pointless to start writing on infobarrel?
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.

People have suggested I join Infobarrel so I did. I unpublished and deleted a hub here about La Guancha in Tenerife and thought I would use it as my first InfoBarrel article. The first problem I ran into was it said I was using a keyword too much. The keyword was roses and I was saying that there...

Here's an announcement (dated Aug 11) from Harlow-McGaw, the owners of Daily Two Cents, Writedge, and other sites:"It saddens us to say we will be shutting down all our sites at the end of the month. We just can no longer afford to keep them going at a loss since we have so few active writers...

These Thieves are back up again.. and once again monetized with that company that has a dollar each way on both the thieves and the Copyright owners... Google!It appears that much of the HubPages content has been shifted or merely re-published with all links, authors and previous publishing sources...
