Is Hubpages Sexist?
I wrote 2 hubs... one about How Men Deal With Stress, and the...other about How Women Deal With Stress.
They are similar in length and content, but the one for the women got a higher score than the one for men!
I believe it is just one of the differences between the genders. It isn't that one is better than the other, it just may be a matter of who is interested in learning about how each gender deals with stress. Personally, I would like to know how both myself and my man deal with it, but that is a female's take. A man may feel he already knows how HE deals with it and could skip the article on men, focusing more on understanding HER.
Good point Mom Kat, but curiously they both have the same amount traffic....
*eerie Twilight Zone music*
i dont think hub pages is sexist mabey there are just more woman on hub paqges that are intrested with your topic
Likely the poeople who read it liked that article perspective more (as it applied to them) and voted it up. The voters could of been predominantly female or not the world will never know
Interesting. If they have the same amount of traffic, it could be that the higher score one gets more votes up and/or comments here on HP. The Hub score doesn't affect the traffic. After the first week or so, traffic mainly boils down to what Google, Yahoo, Bing... send to your Hubs as a result of web searches.
I don't think that Google, et al, knows anything about Hub Scores.
If it is considered sexism, it is probably because men usually give a cr*p less than women about the subject. C'est la vie.

Hello Hubbers! I'm fairly new to HubPages, I've been here about a week now and love the community so far! Anyway, I was thinking, since we all have the same goal; to make money, get readers and help people, I thought I would make a topic for us all to discuss the best places to post our HubPages...

I signed up for the Earning Program a little over a year ago (before, I used to only earn through Amazon and Adsense) and while I am seeing earnings every day, I've only been able to reach payout twice. I've tried to update my hubs, use interesting titles and good photos, but I still find that my...

So when I first published all my articles they seemed to average 5-10 views per day (approx.) but now they only average 0-5? I feel like each article gets a boost when it's first published, and then the articles are kinda kicked down into the archives? Is this normal? Thanks!

I am always surprised that guest blogging is never discussed on HubPages. We all know it's important to have backlinks pointing to our Hubs and websites. We also know that Google is working hard to detect and devalue links which are artificially created - things like directory...

I have read somewhere here that google search engines take into account the page-views to compute ranking. Is it advisable to delete non-performing Hubs, those with 0 pageviews a day, as a way to increase traffic in an attempt to increase ranking?How do you deal with low-performing hubs?thanks in...
