Looking at the Latest Hubs listings, I found one that had somehow managed to place a large image advert in the middle of the description. This of course made this entry jump out from the page. I didn't think that was possible, never having seen it before, so I checked out the page source code, and found the entry included this:
(img border="0" src="http://www.undergroundattraction.com/ebc_vol1_mid-adjusted.jpg" width="250" height="319" align="left" hspace="10" vspace="6" /)(/p)
But how on earth did the author insert it in the first place??
note - I've replaced the angle brackets with round brackets so that it would paste here.
Maybe they had two text blocks and adsense inserted it inbetween? Don't know, just suggesting. I'm no expert.
Hi Kenny -
No, the picture wasn't in the hub - it was in the listing of hubs! You know, when you're looking for something to read, you go to HUBS/LATEST and see all the new ones listed. They are all the same - small picture on the left, text block on the right. But this one had a huge advert picture in the middle of the text block.
It was also that hubbers first hub, and he'd joined only minutes before. I suspect quite a clever hack, but let's wait for Paul's thoughts.
Oh, how did he do that!
Apologies, and yes, let's wait for Paul to react.
Paraglider, I saw it now! It just draws all attention to itself quite easily. Though it's a little unfair on us who are no experts at such things. Sigh.
Damn, that is a clever way of doing it.
I am sure it will disappear, but it's clever.LOL.
Of course any moron who buys that book needs his head examined, but....
I kept a screen grab of it just in case Paul wants to see it, but I guess it will be there until he removes it! Of course, maybe it's a Gunship Hub !!
Ok Paraglider, I cracked it. The trick is in pasting the code in the summary text area. See the latest hubs list now. I will unpublish it later.
I was thinking of trying that myself, but I just assumed that html wouldn't paste into the summary window. I'm sure it won't for much longer!!
Gunship hub? I roared with laughter at that!
Now we have to wait for Paul to tell us whether it's ok to do this or not!
Look at that, SunSeven's pic plastering the latest hubs page!
Paul should be up any time.
Ok Friends, I am glad this issue is addressed by the admin. And, a lot of thanks to Paraglider who brought this into the light. I have just logged in and I have deleted that test hub. Thank you Paul.
its funny what things make programs go apesh**, I was using the myspace email system once and recived a mail that never seemed to load.. I kept refreshing the page and still nothing showed up where mail usually is.. unpon a last minute frustration I scrolled down (didnt think to do this right away) and found the entire email was on the outside of the entire mail frame below it (broke format).. curious as to how this happened I copy pasted the entire email (which didnt look different than any other and no html at all) into word to see what it could be (thinking maybe their was hidden html tags or something).
Upon seeing the mail something stood out in word that didnt show up in the email, the girl put a sentence then ended it with an exclamation point (!) however she over endulged in the repeating of this key !!!!!... about 100 of them showed up in word but only about 30 on the myspace mail page..
Remembering the old AOL days of writing email punters (they used to plug in confusing html codes that didnt have a closed bracket i.e. writing (<) over and over to the end of the email made the software look for the html (that wasnt there) and no closed greater than sign froze up the software (software nowdays has none of these issues thanx to aol and all those kiddie hackers lol)..
Well what happened in the myspace mail was the exclamation point repeated over 100 times caused the html page to somehow bounce the mail right out of the box and appear outside the entire frame/shell designed to contain the words of the email!
Interresting how stuff happens.. more interresting when you find a bug and can fix it fast due to experience in your past and I thought all those people punting me would just be annoying, I actually was motivated to learn how they did it and now can fix alot of simular issues beacuse of this knowledge.. kudos sunseven.. nicely figured out.

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

I know this article is not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but it does fairly well for me. I've tried submitting it at least twice in the past and it gets rejected with the basic e-mail. Is it worth editing again and trying to get it approved, or am I wasting my time? Am I focusing on a lost...

Since I migrated here from Squidoo two months ago, I've seen a steady stream of threads in this forum, complaining about lost page views. There are a lot of theories about why it's happening, and how much it's happening, and what can be done to get into Google's good graces.Google is not my #1...

The graph speaks for itself: Don't publish hubs. Disclaimer: Sarcasm may have played a role in the making of this forum post. The graph, however, is legit and has not been altered in any way.

Does anyone know how to find a search funtion to look for articles on the newest Firefox update? This used to be straigtforward, but I can no longer find it, and I have so many articles posted that I need to use this when looking for something.

I can't believe that I'm ranked behind people who just link up American Idol highlights.I asked Hubpages what the deal was and they gave me a runaround. I'm starting to think this is all BS! Please help renew my faith.
