Secret Hubs?

  1. Matthew Hollands profile image61
    Matthew Hollandsposted 8 years ago

    Can I make a secret hub that doesn't appear on my profile, but that I can give people a direct link to?  Maybe even password protected?

      There's no way to not have a Hub be in the index, or to have it not found by Google nor password protected.  All newly published Hubs appear on the "latest Hubs" list too.

      Why would you want to do that? Does it have naughty sexual content? The be all and end all of Hubstaff can still read it you know.

    A few people have more than one HP account smile alternate profiles wink you know but you will need a new email acct I believe hmm don't quote me on that, better check, lol big_smile

      yes, you would require a different email acct to sign up with. A new acct would allow you to post hubs you may not want associated with your current profile, but won't keep them out of the system, like Relache said.

      Of course, if you published under a different name, readers wouldn't know it was you unless you told them smile

    Thanks all!  I wanted a family only hub, but I'll look at other options...

      Both Blogger and Wordpress.com allow you to have private accounts, but watch the use of tags on wordpress.  Even on private accounts google will pick them up.

      If you'd like a family website, it's really easy to do it with wordpress.com. smile

      You could try Ning, too - I am on a couple of private Ning sites, and they are pretty good smile

    I haven't seen that feature here, that's why they are so strict on unfinished hubs, all the hubs are indexed in google.

    Or maybe write it in a code language that only you can understand... smile
