We are the leaders in building services that support authors in an open publishing environment. We are investing in editing, improving monetization, and today we started a test to promote content.
Our community and our platform are best suited for creating everyday useful information. We talk a lot about our strategy of satisfying readers and Google and our mission to be the best place to create useful, media-rich pages on topics you are passionate about.
To continue on this path, today we partnered with an agency to promote content on PetHelpful that will grow useful inbound links directly to articles. The effort is focused on building resource style links directly to articles from respected sites.
We believe links are an important part of the search algorithm for the style of content authors create on HubPages and that promoting content in a responsible way is among the toughest challenges for authors that create high-quality content. Over the next several months, we will make a significant investment and monitor the results as we continue our march!
Wow! Awesome news. Can't wait for the tests to reach all niches.
Interesting and very exciting. HubPages once again showing why they have succeeded where other sites have failed. I'm quite curious about how this will work.
Sounds good, Paul. But who pays for this "significant" investment?
Wow, that's great news.
I am glad to see that HubPages is heading for the best
Sounds promising to me - I leave it to the experts at HP - but just a question or two - Is this an irreversible process? That is, if it backfires will it be detrimental to the whole? Got to be optimistic, HP seems to be on the right track for success at this point in time..
I'm all for experimenting on pethelpful. My one, inadequate, fish article deserves to perish for a good cause.
On the other hand, if the links are genuinely worthwhile, and a few could rain down on the YMYL sites wouldn't that be wonderful?
That sounds promising! Thanks for all of your promotional efforts.
I'm glad I publish my articles on HubPages. This news sounds very promising. I look forward to it being done with all niche sites eventually, assuming it works.
Sounds great, I look forward to seeing the results and possible widespread implementation.
A happy news. I am glad to know about these awesome promotional tools introduced to HubPages sites.
Thanks for informing this good news.
I would foresee this feature being introduced to all the niche sites.
I look forward to see the outcome of this. I do enjoy Hubpages and the community spirit here.
Yay for innovation! I haven't any PetHelpful hubs, but that's okay. If it's good for the site, it's good for all of us. And if it works, then all the niche sites will benefit too. Thank you, Hubpages.
I hear Fancy Bear have a special package this Autumn:
Five thousand roubles gets you ten links from RT and Sputnik.
Ten thousand roubles gets you 15 links and a new President.
This is exciting. I appreciate you all and your expertise and desire to see that our articles get seen and read.
Exciting that you picked that niche. Is there a reason that you selected that one?
This is great news. I just hope you are getting links from websites that have actual viewers That's the metric Google is considering these days, based on my own tests and also other experts out there.
Sounds like a super-deluxe idea! Can't wait to see the results!
I can't help feeling a little bit worried that this is artificial link building.
I have about 6 articles on Pethelpful. I am interested to see if there are any changes to my traffic. Right now one of those articles is doing quite well. I will let people know if/when there are changes.
How can I know if my links are correct and draw the views I need?
I hope this paid company will have all the checks and balances we Hub writers have regarding links on our articles.
But I am right, we can link, for example, one Pethelpful article to another PetHelpful article?
