New format on my page WHY?? I hate it
Why is my page a new format, (I hate it) yet when I visit other hubbers, their page is as always has been ????
Dim my format is no different than yours, very narrow, yet they have all that extra blank space to use?? so why are we so SIZED DOWN? I don't get it either.
Yeah, it seems like Hubpages is going through some growing pains these days, with the overall web design formats for sure. I think they are trying to experiment with a newer look overall, and just hope they get it right quick and soon, because many of us have invested quite some time into writing our hubs, and it would be an extreme injustice for them to just drop the ball on us like that, you know.
Lets hope and pray that they aren't making a grave mistake, and are only doing these updates to improve our overall standing on the web as a whole, and for good reason. I guess the best thing to do would be to be patient with them, so that they can get it right. I think they're also working on changing the overall format of the hubpages profile section as well, who knows with the web today, maybe they had no other alternative but to adapt to the growing changes on the web entirely.
The post on the blog gives a little more information. http://blog.hubpages.com/2012/06/new-hu … -sitewide/ I guess testing has shown that this format gets more click-throughs to related hubs which is good for everybody.
I was going to post what Nochance posted (the blog link.) If you have any specific issues, like I did, just reply to the blog post. They already sorted my issue out, so maybe they're open to your thoughts!
Dim, I hate it too. Hub formats were ok,, but then it jus quit and went to a format that I really hated, and it won't let me change it! Kept thinking it was me but it isn't-- it's definitely hp. Like you, I've found most are same. Frustration? Hah!

As a person who has devloped several sites and works with the web, I am very disappointed in the "Start a new hub format page". Everytime I try to start something on that page it keeps saying something stupid and it never allows a simple easy process to let you work through. YOu need a...

Hi I noticed recently that when hubs are listed in the Google search results the 2nd link doesn't got to the hub but to the category page - for example: You can see the tumblr page has the normal double link to the page ranked - but the hubpage doesn't the 2nd link is to...

For the past 12h or so, when I log in and view my pages/hubs or profile, when I plan to edit, etc, the page format looks all wrong - photo alignment is all messed up, my photo ends up somewhere on the right, more than half-way down the page, everything is all left-aligned and looks plain...

Not that I was making any money from them, but why has my directly related Amazon product link been snipped in the hub-pro edit ?I could understand snipped competitor products, but what is the point of having ebay / amazon capsules if they are being removed from the niche sites?

I've been trying to increase the traffic to my hubs. Overall, my page views are rising. I've noticed the past few days that my page views go up and down during the day. For instance, this morning I had 99 views. Now this afternoon it's down to 87 views. What happened...
