    Hi everyone! 

    I have never posted in the forum, so just thought that I would give it a try!  Haha.  Just out of curiosity, how long did it take you to get your first 1,000 views on HubPages?  I have been here for almost four months now, and I'm just 100 views shy of the thousand mark.  Its a bit discouraging sometimes.  I had hopes for a lot more by now haha.

      I've been here 4 months and iam almost at 4,000 views. I share my articles. On social media sites and my views went way up about 3weeks ago.

        Wow! That's awesome! I hadn't really though about social media. I'll have to give that a try as well!

      It took about eight hours to reach my first 1,000 views on HubPages, but my content had been moved from another site to HubPages and got to keep its backlinks. Views slowed down after that because HubPages is associated with malware and spam and thus is heavily penalized by Google.

        Also, the owners are well known satanists.

        edit: that is probably not true.

          I'd show you an image from my dashboard to prove it's true, but you aren't worth my time and you'd never give me your email address. You're one of the reasons I use this forum infrequently. I'll reach a million views soon. Without the penalty, I think I'd have reached it in less than a year if traffic were similar to what I get on other content.

          You know the Google penalty on HubPages is real. It's why our hubs that languish on HP proper take off within days of moving to a vertical site.

          [edited to add] And every content farm online has been penalized for being associated with spam. Heck, it seems like half of Googles algorithm releases are intended to combat content farms.

            Kylyssa, Will wasn't questioning your statement, he was referring to his own remark about satanists.

            You should give some thought to what you say to newbies especially when it is only partly true.

            Yes, HP has been penalized by Google. For the most part, the niche sites provide a solution to that.

            Also, suggesting that 'HubPages is associated with malware' is downright malicious in itself. As well, as untrue.

            Don't expect to be treated with kid gloves. You ain't no shrinking violet, why should I be?

              I have screen captures to prove that, right or wrong, HubPages gets flagged as hosting malware. It doesn't matter if the flags are false, because most people aren't going to click a flagged link.

              It's unkind to let newbies think they can keep plugging away on HubPages proper and gain enough views for it to be worth all their work. They have to submit to the vertical sites because HubPages proper has been heavily penalized by Google.

              Wait, are you accusing me of creating fake images on my post that shows HubPages flagged as malware on Bing, Google, and Mozilla? They're just screen captures. I only cropped them and enlarged them.

                You have screen captures that prove Avira is error prone, at best making a judgement on a few rogue ads that slipped through screening, or simply reacting to file names that are similar to virus file names.

                You use this to insinuate to newbies that HP is completely disreputable.

                No doubt you are upset about some issue with your pages and then segue into 'HP is the embodiment of all evil'.

                Surely, you can do better.

                  Where did I say HubPages was the embodiment of all evil? Hubs that don't move to vertical sites are dead ends because they've been labeled, right or wrong, as coming from a questionable site by Google. If a hub stays on HubPages, it stagnates.

                  If newbies know this coming in, they can focus on creating content for the vertical sites and not for HubPages proper. There's really no point to publishing something that doesn't fit one of the niche sites. Would you rather have them write their hearts out and give up because it takes them months to get the views they could be seeing elsewhere in days or would you rather they write for the vertical sites and stick around?

                  An anti-malware program "sees" HubPages as unsafe. That is a fact. It may well be a flaw in the program, but how are its users to know that? If you don't think the Google penalty against HubPages has anything to do with Google's software's negative assessment of the site, then what is it for? Is Google just being mean?

                  I almost feel you're playing devil's advocate because you have to see the differences whenever you look at Google Analytics. I have individual pieces of writing that get as many views as my whole HubPages account and they are of no higher quality. I'm embarrassed it's taken this long to get to just under a million views on HubPages. Some of that is my fault, but my hubs cannot possibly be a hundredth as good as everything else I write. Something that lousy wouldn't even be readable by anyone.

    Really, HP is penalized by Google! Are there any consequences on individual hubs?

    By the way, saw your article Kylyssa, great articles with social messages. waiting to read more such articles, following you now on HP.

    Larry, I feel your pain. I think it took me about a month to get 1k views.  After two months, I'm just over 2600.  Just keep working hard and enjoying what you write.  In time, the views will come.  I think being consistent, sharing on other platforms, and enjoying what you are doing will pay off in the end smile  Good luck!

    What part of that image makes me a liar?

    False flag or not, it is an association, and blessed few people or search engines are going to take the time to investigate something their software identifies as a risk.

      Are you sure this is legitimate security status?

        It's what I see when I click the red Avira box at the top of any HubPages page on my friend's computer. I can get it to override by creating an exception, but we can't count on readers to create an exception rather than just trusting their anti-virus software.

        The red tabs only come up on the HubPages pages I've visited, with one exception. I've visited a wide assortment of other sites using this computer today and none of the others except for a clickbait link someone shared on facebook showed the red tab at the top.

          Ok. Just checking. I use AVG, but I couldnt see any anti virus logo on your box/ screenshot. Sometimes hijackers will use some warning box that looks authentic, if you know what I mean.

    HP has been flagged a few times by a few services.  If it is a major one it is worth sending a help email letting them know--they get in touch with the service and work out what is causing the flag.  It is often perfectly normal features like redirecting urls.  These are used in malware, but also used when hubs are moved to one of the new sites.
