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.
No point in it now, as ya just let the secret out of the bag ... Just kidding!
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 alternate profiles you know but you will need a new email acct I believe don't quote me on that, better check, lol
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
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.
You could try Ning, too - I am on a couple of private Ning sites, and they are pretty good
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...

If you don't have the Google Plus thing, then there is nothing that needs to be done at the moment presumably?I couldn't follow the video. Couldn't see what the guy was writing clearly, and couldn't understand the accents very well. One of them kept going on about some relict(???)Anyway, it seems...

This might be a complete co-incidence, but I switched to the new profile a couple of days ago, and today Google is pretending it doesn't know me. Hubs that ranked on the first page for main keyword are not found in the first 10 pages. Even more worrying, I can't find them in Google even...

Hey y'all!Jason Menayan just published a GREAT blog post about his secret to finding high-traffic Hub topics: http://blog.hubpages.com/2011/02/high-traffic-topics/The gist is that he shies away from news, newsy titles, viral topics, review of low-cost products, and anything personal, and looks for...

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...
