Hubpages changing urls has turned out to be not so good a thing. I am now seeing a big SECURITY WARNING and the screen refuses to allow me to move further on our past urls which happen to still be sprinkled all over the web (especially on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter etc).
New url: https://hubpages.com/health/tips-for-li … e-syndrome
Old url which was supposed to redirect to the new url: https://ladylorelei.hubpages.com/hub/ti … e-syndrome
This is the exact message I receive:
Your connection is not secure
The owner of ladylorelei.hubpages.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.
You get an even worse message on Google Chrome. It says that attackers might be trying to steal your information! Definitely something for the site team to take a look at.
Thanks Lorelei for letting us know. Had trouble with this before, but hoped it was all resolved.
Hello Lorelei Cohen, The link you are referring to is a HubPages subdomain link. HubPages has never supported nor disseminated https links on subdomain urls. All links were http when we had subdomains and those redirect properly. This issue only affects https subdomain links of which there should be very few.
So, what would cause this, and what can we do about it? Every one of mine that I have checked seem to be HTTPS
So when we are de-indexting articles will we need to put both the http and https settings for each previous url in Google and Bing deindex?

Every time I use Hubpages, I always receive warning alert from AVG. I often ignore it but constant warnings just made me post this. Is Hubpages really safe to share personal information.

When the new rules were brought in, we were told we'd receive a warning email if a Hub was non-compliant.And so we did. But I've just had a Hub unpublished which was not on the list. It was for a link to a "prohibited site". I got no advance warning, and as it's...

Today one of my hub was unpublished by Hubpages stating that it is on a forbidden topic. I never knew debt which is one of the highest paying topic in adsense is a forbidden topic at Hubpages. I would request Hubpages moderators to unpublish all my hubs on various debt topics as I have about 15-20...
