    I received a hit on one of my hubs from this site. I'm not failiar with it. Is it affiliated with hubpages, or is a separate entity?

        Are you sure its affiliated? I thought Ryan or someone else must have at the least blogged about it if it were affiliated with HubPages...

            I have seen that and that is why I thought HubPages won't create something that lacks quality. In addition to what Cls1321 has said,  on their start earning money page, the link has a tracker which means its not affiliated with hubpages because HubPages don't need to place such trackers in their links.
            Anyways, you have been here for a couple of years now so might know a lot. Think we will solve this mystery soon.

                This incident indicates that not everything you read in the forum are true.  You must take any advice with a grain of salt.sad

                  You are adorable we should read the information and my information had came from a hubber who was here much longer then I so all of us make mistakes. I feel horrible because I am normally on target and won't respond unless I know the answer. sad

        Thanks! I was pretty excited, that was my first hit that wasn't from hubpages, facebook, or shetoldme (I've only had about two hits from there so far). Then right after that, I saw my first hit from yahoo.

        It's NOT affiliated.  It is a separate entity. 

        An affiliation is when there is a formal partnership.  This site is just some guy trying to make a buck via his own trackers by making an entire site that points people at HubPages.

          Thank you for the clarity I realized I made a mistake and caught it, thank you again. smile

    I just looked at those for my hubs, didn’t realize you could until now, However I have a question. I'm getting good hits from Yahoo & Google, even some from AOL search but I received some hits from Facebook which is great, but I’m not a facebook member, any ideas?

  3. readytoescape profile image61

    Another curiosity is I am receiving more hits from Yahoo than Google. Confusing, great, but confusing considering adsense affiliation?

      That happens to me on a few of my hubs. It's not a problem. Yahoo traffic converts better on AdSense than Google traffic.

    AEvans I trust you and all but I sure hope its not an affiliated site. Just on the "start making money" and "about us" pages you can see 2 blatantly obvious spelling errors. And they claim to be a small niche marketing company ?

    Whatever the case, that site has a garish colour scheme. Jeez.

    Below is the first sentence from the "Start Earning Money" page, just to show what everybody is talking about with the quality issues:

    "You probably heard about Hubpages.com  if not  the go and create you new account, you are loosing money every money you are doing it."

      Haha!!! lol

      Hence proved, the site is in no way affiliated with HubPages.

      Thanx Monty.

      agreed its a pretty messed up site and there is no way it is affiliated with hub pages. but it prob is makeing some good money by displaying hubs there.. is it legal for them to rss feed hubs from hubpages? or are they copying the content. not sure if i like either idea

        Tell me abuot it... But, I've seen worse. There's a blogger blog that uses nothing but RSS feeds from hubbers. It's one of the trashiest thing I've ever seen. I get a few hits from it, but I know they're just trying to get referrals. If they do, good for them, but the blog looks terrible. Just can't remember what it's called off the top of my head.

    Paul's official word confirms it, but were you seriously even thinking hubpages had something to do with that site? haha

    That's probably ran by a fellow hubber. It's got ads pasted in various places, color scheme is horrible, pagerank 0 out of 10...yeah that's not the work of hubpages.
