Chrome has been refusing to load hubpages.com and the niche sites, from time to time over the last week. There is just a blank page. I haven't seen any effect on other sites when this is happening.
Firefox displays an Avira warning of a potentially harmful site ahead, if I switch to that browser. The Avira 'browser safety' feature is only installed in Firefox.
No idea why this is happening but I thought I let someone know.
Today I was unable to load HP. I tried several times over about 30 minutes. Finally, it loaded. I assumed HP was down for maintenance.
We did have a major site outage this morning from about 5:20 to about 7:20am PST due to a database outage. Things are up and running again and we don't anticipate more issues. Thanks for your patience, everyone, while we got this resolved!
Thank you for the update.
Is it possible for Programmers or technicians to put a message on site when it is under maintenance or something?
As Will Apse said, It was very scary and disappointing day for everyone.
I got scared at first that HubPage is permanently shut then I called up my internet service provider and fired him....haha.
Later in a day, I was happy and alive to see HubPages working normally. And yeah I said sorry to internet service provider.
Anyways, Thank you once again for the update.
The thing is when the hubpages.com site is down or down for for maintenance you can't see any notice!
The way most sites address this is by having a Twitter account which stays up when they go down...
I had that earlier. I ran hubpages (from the UK) through downforeveryoneorjustme and it agreed that "Hubpages is down". So I figured it must be global Internet infrastructure issues.
I'd not seen it before though... just today. But I'm not here every day.
I think if the site is down for maintenance there would be "Site down for maintenance" on the screen.
I have been sharing many good hubs from the niche sites onto Flipboard. When they get picked up, they usually get thousands to tens of thousands of extra page views. When I went to look at one this morning, however, it came up blank. I think if this happens a lot that site is going to stop working for the niche sites.
According to currentlydown.com/hubpages. com, the site was down for 2 hours and 10 minutes today.
I noticed today for maybe as long as 60 minutes, and yesterday from time to time. Quite worrying.
Quite a dip in the traffic stats today, I hope that this is just temporary.
This happened twice for me since Sat. In my case, it didn't load on either IE or Firefox ...

I have been pleased with the audience and revenue for my articles on HubPages since joining the site some years ago.I commend the company for creating the successful niche sites at a time when similar sites were folding. My existing articles that moved to those sites have done even better than...

Only the best Hubs on HubPages are being moved to niches, so everything on the niche sites is spam free and trash free. There are no pieces written in broken English or written in ways that appear to be spun. Everything that's low quality is left behind. Even the ads are high-quality on the niche...

Should I submit the article with the highest hubscore for a higher chance of approval?

I'm very happy with the results of the niche sites. It's a win-win for HubPages and writers like myself. But I'm a bit curious about the process for choosing Hubs that go on those sites.One of my most successful Hubs on a niche site has more than 1,250 words, multiple photos and an original video....

The chart showed a loss of about 55% of the traffic on Hubpages in the last 6 months.I also looked at the traffic trends on some of the niche sites, and they don't seem to be making up for the loss.In fact the bounce rate seemed higher than that of Hubpages.What are the old timers thoughts about...

I was under the impression that we could only submit one hub every two weeks for niche sites. I submitted a hub and an editor replied with changes that I needed to make before it could be moved. As I'm making those changes, I have received two emails that another two of my hubs are...
