Just got the email about my 300+ lenses being imported to hubs. I excitedly went to check them and got the scare of my life. Investigated a bit and learned that Hubpages is blocked by AdblockPlus.
At Squidoo most of our earnings came from Amazon - most of our lenses are geared towards Amazon products, lists, etc, because that's what the Squidoo direction was, so when making our lenses, we went with the flow, not against it.
I think the magnitude of this will hit from now on as everyone gets their existing lenses transferred and the earnings (for many of us a full time income) basically vanish overnight because Amazon simply is not visible to millions of people online who click on the hub and don't see any of the products (links) for what we're talking about on the hub.
Is there any chance for Hubpages management/IT of looking into it? I mean if Squidoo managed to do it, isn't there a way for Hubpages to also get a whitelist? Could you please at least consider looking into it?
HP is not going to do anything about adblock according to Paul Edmonson.
I'm really bummed out about this, because I have a couple of transfers that are set up to use the Amazon capsule as the image for the thing I'm writing about. My list of films about artists looks really bleak without those images showing!
Oh boy am I ever in trouble then. I was wondering why my lenses had not made it across yet. Hopefully they are working on a way around that.
Here is the post I was looking for: Paul addressed this 13 days ago. His comment is in Yellow box. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/124092#post2625802

I am being challenged. I have been having a problem getting a new hub to be featured. It has gone through QAP three times already. It is a new day, and I am feeling up to the challenge once again. Rested and refreshed after a good nights sleep, with a hopeful heart. So! Now, the hub will be going...

I just got my article transferred last night and today I spent 4 hours editing one of my less often read ones to get used to how to work here in HubPages. I did everything I was instructed to and it said it was published when I clicked the Done Editing Button. Then it said I had to click un...

I'm not knocking anybody (or maybe I am) but I have seen several "Hubs" that transferred from Squidoo that are composed of nothing more than very thin content and a whole bunch of merchandising links (and even one lady who pimped her own Etsy page multiple times in her "Hub")....

There has been a lot of discussion in the last few days about HP changing the rules and people being un-featured or even un-published for spam and over promotional activity. So I just want to add my thoughts......Whether people (writers) like it or not most of their traffic will be coming from...

Your arrival has eclipsed a new feature that we were discussing in earnest when the merger was announced.HubberPro is a new feature. In a nutshell, HP has hired 7 excellent editors to help bring our hubs up to snuff. They will be doing fact checking, editorial corrections, updating images...
