I am checking in on my hubs in between customers here at my gift shop. Sold 4 vintage beer steins just now ! I hope this keeps up as last Winter about killed my shop so I need extra sales just in case it is terrible here in Ohio like last year.
I used to try to work on a hub at least once to week to keep them fresh, but I'm afraid to touch them now with these cranky filters. I only have 3 or 4 that are featured now out of over 40 Very discouraging.
Most of mine are now at the half-circle and they will likely stay that way because too many times when I tried to update them to get the full-circle, I'd get the empty circle IF, there were an easy fix as to why I wouldn't mind. But, the jumping through hoops trying to figure the one word or phrase... that they didn't like is just too much work.
@GiftsByDiana I hear ya, I haven't been active (trying to change that) and edited my 6 top viewed hubs earlier this week. Now the hub that got the most views in the last 30 days is "unfeatured due to quality" when it was featured prior to editing, and the only thing I did was witch out Amazon ads for eBay because Amazon no longer pays out in my state.
Additionally, the hub score for that one dropped to the 50s too, which makes no sense because it's got the 2nd highest views ever out of all my hubs.
It would seem that HubPages frowns upon the ongoing interaction within my popular thread, and I was wondering if anyone else has noticed this sort of trend within their own threads? The responses are relevant, engaging, and ongoing; so is this HubPages trying to say, indirectly, that it is time to...
What prompted this thread?I have exactly 700 connections at the moment. The problem? Over 650 of them are total slackers.It's getting to be a tough town over there, leastwise for me. And I've been a good little Bubbler as to treating my connections well.Guess maybe I should start writing hubs...
So apparently Mark was banned from the forum the other day for being a decent person. Then someone here had the audacity to call my favorite author's work, "drivel." So I thought maybe Mark, being one of the funniest ppl I have never met, should get a little shot in the arm. My favorite...
