    Does Google recognize our domain ( as individuals or as a single unit?

    The question that woke me up this morning was whether or not Google differentiates each of our accounts as individual or as a single unit... when promote or visit other hubpage hubs....???

    Does active participation and commenting help or hinder?

    This might sound like a stupid question Dave, but what is the difference between "individual" and "single" units? I'm perplexed.

    Google recognizes each hubpages account as subdomains...yes!

    Each account is separate that is why, in the hubs stats you can tell from which other domain visits came from, for example you may see some traffic from another hubbers account. Someone might have clicked on a link from the related hubs section so it records that visit as unique.

    All traffic is now recorded as separate, HP traffic is from hopping and clicking on hubs form the hubs category, all other traffic names the sources such as the hubbers domain.

    I hope I explained it well.

    The simple answer would have been yes. Active participation does help, it's like getting traffic from other websites.

    @ George this is what he meant:
    Individual in a sense you and me are different websites
    A single unit -we are one under a single website namely HP

    We are individual subdomains of the main domain Hubpages. It is like a craft site that has a subdomain for scrapbooking, another for crochet, another for sewing etc. You get some of the authority from the original domain, but each subdomain stands on its own at the same time.

    Being on Hubpages does help us right now, but if Panda would slap them again, it could harm us at the same time. The rank that Hubpages has with Google for now anyways, is higher than we could probably reach with our own website.
