But when I type in "anime" into the Hub search, it only lists articles about animals o.O
Can you guys look into this?
Keep in mind that the search needs to account for typos that people might make.
If you would want to exclude animals the easiest way to do it is to use the "-" notation.
Here's a search that looks for "anime" but not "animals":
Here's a direct link.

Yes, but anime is not a typo, it is a word itself.
I am suggesting that they correct this for search queries and include "anime."
Type in ANIME CARTOONS .....should achieve the acquired results you are looking for....I understand your gripe but the words are very similar (first four letters are the same) so it is not a matter of the word ANIME not being in the search engine. If the search engines become TOO specific there is a high degree of possibility that content could become skipped over...
Specificity sometimes helps clear anything up...
Still no excuse! Anime is too popular of a topic not to be able to search for outright. Anime cartoons is redundant =\
Hopefully someone working for HubPages will pick this up
I am on the HubPages staff.
I should also mention that I'm a big fan of anime. :-)
I'll verify that the search engine is handling this term correctly. I'll post back on this thread after I've finished testing.
OK I think Larry gave you the key for searching Anime.
You might want to consider that animals are extremely popular and have been for millions of years. Learn how to narrow your search and you will find exactly what you are looking for.
Man! You guys need to get out more! You know those cartoons are cartoons don't you?
I checked it out and it comes down to the morphology add-on that we use for HubPages. It looks like it will take some time to figure out how difficult the fix is.
In the mean time, I think that the best workaround is the advice given by Sidney Rayne to use
Use the word Manga then. It isn't a miss type and there all still anyway.
OK, I found a fix for "anime" vs "animal" issue.
It will go out the next time that we update our search engine.
Gotta love anime Just more recently got into anime myself.
I'd have to agree with hoodieweather on this one and say Cowboy Bebop, with GTO coming in a close second

We had more votes for the poll, but I realized I spelt one of the shows incorrectly! Still trying to create a title that brings in more readers.
What is your current favorite?
hmmm let me think...I have always been more partial towards Ah My Goddess and Inuyasha. Haven't watched either in a while though...I think I need to get them on DVD lol have the movies for both but still missing a couple for Inuyasha....
Interesting, now the word "cartoon" appears to be equivalent to "anime"
Oh well, guess there's no perfect fix.
Thanks for looking into this!
I can't remember what I put when I wrote about an anime movie I love watching for inspiration...
I still think it's a flaw in the search engine itself. It shouldn't matter how popular a subject is, the engine should find what you're looking for when you give it exactly that.
Thanks for all of the help Larry...tell everyone thanks too and that you guys rock!

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

Good job hubpages! Tell all your authors to write 3 sentence summaries about their hubs. Then use these summaries for meta descriptions in the actual webpages. Stupid. I bet hubpages has millions of pages with meta descriptions that clearly violate search engine guidelines. Bing won't even index a...

This week i have noticed a massive reduction of traffic from 1200 to 300 views per day. When I searched Google, I found that most of the Hubs have reduced Google ranking. The Most disheartening thing is pages that over take me in Google search are in fact advertisements and few sentence pages. In...

I've read over and over the "get quality backlinks with Qassia" line.Is it true? Do links from this site help?How do you do it? I know you write the "intel", but where does the backlink link to? Your profile? Or can you change it to different hubs each time?

Well, when you are suffering from depression and you opened your hubpages stats then you notice that 9 of your supposed to be featured hubs got unfeatured due to lack of traffic.. Very disappointing indeed but, can you guys here suggest some tips in improving hits? I don't want to spam my facebook...
