I just read the HP update on Google. The question is, for the rest of us that are here for the long run; Is the end of a pseudo-commercialized writers site? Or, it is a capitulation of HP as a business? Or, even worse, are we all going to be a flotsam or writers set adrift on the web by the arrogance of the Great Google?
It is in the last HubPages Weekly Report that we all get. And it gives a link to a FAQ about "Spammy Articles"
Very depressing, actually.
I must have deleted it without reading it, can't find it now.
I have another question: Was that 'gator in the photo asleep when the vine grew over its nose?
Could somebody please post a link to it - I can only recall an update about how HubPages defines spam. Nothing to do with Google
I received two warnings from my antivirus. I did not pay attention to the first one except for the item removed. The second time, I noticed that, like the first, it was connected with Google Chrome again so I looked at the details
and it was suggested that I switched browsers so I did.
I do not know if the problem is Google or just a virus.

Looks like Google made another algo change earlier this week. My traffic rose about 25% on my main HP account around this time, so I'm guessing the update was the cause. My traffic is still low by historical standards (down by more than a third from the start of the year), but I...

There may already be a thread on this, but I can't find it. So the two reasons I can find for the Fred update (9th March) were backlinks from ureputable websites and for websites which had a lot of advertising Some sites have apparently dropped 90% in traffic.I truly doubt that HP is going around...
