Is There A Better Way to unFeature / NOINDEX Hubs?
HubPages unFeature / NOINDEX hubs action that occurs when their software decides a hub is no longer popular enough to index in Google has caused a variety of reactions from Hubbers. Since having a NOINDEX tag can cause Google to ignore a hub for a very long time, even after the tag is removed by HubPages, are there better ways to implement this policy? How about providing Hubbers a gentle reminder and give them a week to update Hubs that are close to reaching the criteria for getting slapped with the NOINDEX tag? That way HubPages gets what it wants without potentially harming hubs.
You'd really have to direct that to hubpages themselves....
Thanks. I know they read many of these questions. I am also wondering what other Hubbers think are good solutions to this NOINDEX policy? HubPages is losing writers over it. Perhaps they should give a warning and time to fix a hub?
That would take more manpower though... The idling thing, I'm sure, is done automatically by computer... Warnings would need to be monitored and sent specifically....
Computers are pretty sophisticated. Warnings and the actual implementation could be done automatically by computers. If a business just lost 40% of their customers over policy changes (like HubPages did), you'd think they'd reconsider the polices.
Again, no point speaking to me about that.... Contact hubpages?
Got it. I have, with no response. Seems as if they don't care that they upset 40% of their writers, who packed up and left. What a way to run a business!
a gentle reminder should be suffice. Email or SMS would be better too.

I understand it difficult times but what good will deleting hubs do? I see some of the most prolific hubbers deleting heaps of hubs. Have we lost the hope of a hubpages bounce back?

Along with the Google effect lately I've seen a lot of forum posts about spam, and every time I hub hop it is obvious that there is a lot submitted here of both spam and simply substandard hubs.I would suggest that the...

After observing fluctuations in my hubscores, position/rank of my hubs on topic pages, pageviews, and number of comments from hubbers, it just hit me that it really is all about traffic. I say this primarily because my...
