Would it be welcome or even an option to suggest corrections to mistakes that we come across? For example, Editbot changed cant to can't and isnt to isn't on some comments on a particular hub of mine. When going through the corrections, I noticed the following:
A comment read as: "... I completely agree with what you have wrote..."
In this case, with the word choice of "have wrote", it's always going to be "have written" unless I'm missing some word grammar rule hehe. I'm sure this issue is going to be on some other hub (considering the number there are). And there are going to be many similar easy corrections that are always true.
Probably a thread for these issues which could easily be added to the script? Maybe the person in charge just goes through it once a month or so. Crowd-sourcing on such algorithms is always the best way to go in my opinion.
I'm beginning to think this is the team's way of making us update our hubs on a regular basis. One of the latest fresh editbot corrections found an apostrophe missing from a contraction in a comment and fixed it but left in the word "gey" which was probably intended as "get". That same hub was snipped back in July when they took off the words "Step-by-step Photos" from my title. I'm sure I'll have a third chance to review this same hub when they see the word receipe.
That's what I was talking about. Unless someone tells them that the word get is sometimes misspelled as gey (the keys are really close after all), the algorithm won't be able to go ahead and correct that mistake.
It's very easy to change these:
havent - haven't
isnt - isn't
But then we come to a level where someone needs to be finding mistakes that can be successfully corrected for all instances of that particular mistake. There should not be two possibilities (one of them being wrong in particular cases). If that's the case the system needs to be smart enough. But there are still many cases where we can always say "This mistake" must be changed to "this"
Ideally, from an SEO perspective, Editbot should be detecting the errors that the Googlebot detects. Pages need a clean bill of health for ranking reasons.
Dunno if the Googlebot manages grammar well enough to detect 'what you have wrote' as erroneous. If it does not already, I'm sure it soon will.
I'm hoping Hub Pages is not just looking to satisfy the Google Algorithm anymore, but looking for quality (with the main intention still being to satisfy the google bots, but not the only intention). Since they are doing pretty well with the niche sites, why not do all it takes to be better than the Google Algorithm. Like you say it may or may not consider such stuff to be erroneous right now, but in the future it definitely will. Why not start being ready for that day today?
