Why is it that some hubbers have 300+ hubs of pure garbage??

    And no one flags them or takes them down. They are painful to read, ive even noticed some hubs that seem like people are using automated software to enter the content , with repetitive wording over and over again, obviously not geared towards human reading.

      I know of what you speak i just hit 100 hubs and i have tried to make them as best quality as i can it has taken 8 months but I have done it. some of those with 300 + hubs are just using some type of article spinner to get you into reading and want to go away real quick and hopefully click there ad sense. but those will inevitable the ones that fail

      well....if they look automated, that means he probably hired some hack to dump out a lot of keywords and whatnot just to get Adsense hits. i have been approached by some of these individuals for this kind of content and they say 'of course i won't be able to pay you anything until it gets up and running blah blah blah...', at which point i tell them to keep walking.

    or maybe the question should be "How do they have 300+ hubs of garbage"

      I noticed a couple of hubbers publishing 15-18 hubs a day. I know it as I keep getting notifications. How can you expect quality this way?

        I have managed to write 4 in the last 2 days and that took a lot from me so I couldnt imagine 15-18

    I wouldn't force myself to read one hub of garbage. How did you manage to make yourself go through 300?

      Ok well you got me there winki didnt actually go through all 300 but i did peruse them, and every one i found was some type of automated entry.

    We have one forum moderator here and I don't thinks she's doing anything against it, cos this inevitably occurs in abundance in places like hp and it would be a poison to deal with it all working day.

    It's the inevitable result of the type of site that Hubpages has become.

    As soon as something worthwhile appears on the net, the dodgy internet marketers game the hell out of it.

    I've been trying to figure that one out! It just really doesn't make sense to me at all. Maybe after you have submitted a certain number of hubs they don't bother to review your hubs!!I really don't know....

    Maybe the "writers" are hoping this cliche is true: that one man's trash really is another man's treasure...

    I haven't flagged anything, but I've been tempted.

    Please flag hubs that are unreadable.  If you note when you flag that this is a pattern by the user, I will check it out.

    To take them all down I think HP would have to have an army of mods working 24/7.
    It's a shame really.
    I remember back when I first started using Google, you could type in a word, hit search and you'd get maybe 10 relative hits, then the rest were links to some weird websites that made no sense at all when you looked at them.
    Mainly just keywords strung together with your search term in every sentence.
    HP is nowhere near that bad.

    Do we get told if one of our hubs is flagged?

    I dont think that any of mine have ever been flagged, unless I wouldnt know about it?

    you need a big crew to control that unless we (the hubbers) attempt to ignore them. Why waste our time and flag them?

    I don't even waste my time reading hubs that sound like they were taken straight out of wikipedia... and yes, I do wonder why they are allowed... I'm new here so feeling my way around, there are some great writers here~~

    Wikipedia? I wish. Here's a 79-score hub from one of our newest hubbers (complete except for the stolen pic):

    Tequila is a Mexican National Drink most common 50% alc how could it take the question?
    and tequila should be taken very typically involves tequila, salt and lemon

    must first be wetted left hand position between the thumb and forefinger best lick it and then there poured salt and y in the same hand Take a piece of lemon. the other hand held a cup of tequila

    to move quickly if you drink tequila lick salt and eat lemon

    na in good party can be up to this action as well as the only salt has to be on the girls ches ;D

      looks like the hubber had a couple shots before he wrote the hub...
