I been seeing lots of hubbers that have hubs only of pictures and yet they have hundreds of fans..
Is this allowed on hubpages? I take my time writing each and every hub with detail information about each topic and yet my fans are not nearly as close to the fans of photo collections, I not saying is bad but actual informative content pays more than photo collections...
Because a lot of people are lazy... And that is referring to the "sexy babes" picture hubs, not those who publish real photography hubs.
Lester, you'll find plenty of threads on this topic. Yes, photo Hubs are allowed. Indian Hubbers have discovered they can get lots of traffic by stealing pictures of sexy Indian actresses and creating Hubs from them. From all reports, they earn very poorly though, so I wouldn't worry about them.
I have a few photo hubs - and they can tell a story just as content-rich as a written hub. They can also take as much time to assemble if you want a story to emerge, and you want to bring your "reader" to a certain place.
Not so sure mine do that but they're lots of fun
You should have a look at my Hubs but not a lot of following or comment. I'm into photography and I do like looking photos, there's lots to read in a photographs. <snipped - no links please>
I have a couple of indian actress hubs, and they do convert VERY poorly, which is surprising, since my indian actress websites actually convert fairly well.
A lot of the people who create spammy content (I am not talking about all photo hub authors here) will also spam fan requests in an attempt to increase their own fan count.
This does seem to work for them, and may even earn them some cash. Personally however I like my fans to be people who have found my work, and enjoyed it!
Well actually it doesn't, because excessive "fanning" will cause your HubScore to plummet. And fanning has no influence on earning.
When I say it works, this is because I notice the people who partake in 'fanning' have a huge number of fans in return.
I definately disagree with your comment about it relating to earnings, since hubscore doesn't reflect earnings.
What might affect your earnings is if every time you publish a hub, a notification is sent out to hundreds, or even thousands of people. Out of all these readers only a few may read the Hub, however it is only a matter of time until someone clicks a link or purchases a product.
Making Hubs on Indian actresses is no different to those people making hubs around a product and trying to sell it, or even just hope people buy it after reading a review.
I include pictures with my Hubs based on products, the same applies to my hubs on Indian Actresses, it's just a type of content which can be leveraged to increase earnings.
It's easy to get high and mighty about subject content, keyword optimization and so forth, without realising that Google Images can often give more than ten times the number of organic visitors when compared to text based search methods.
Should a hub covering the top ten PC games of 2009, created to sell games, with lots of pictures included be flagged and removed?
After all a huub with the top ten katrina kaif wallpapers is doing exactly teh same thing, but targetting google clicks more than anythign else.
As I previously stated though, the Bollywood actress hubs are poor converters, and my overall income from my Bollywood Actress niche is around $50 a month, although if an actress is in a film this can jump to around $300 a month.
I was wondering who would be interested in pictures of Indian actresses. They could just pick up a magazine from a newsagent's top shelf. HubPages is for writing good content, not for displaying pin-ups.
Saw one with literally five words but three big pictures. Apparently the system cannot see it as substandard if the theres enough pixel image. The same author had another that literally said watch this sexy "bitch" get naughty in the scene and be as big of a "whore" as she can be. Is that really acceptable quality work. Talk about substandard ; but the pixelation was big enough that it didn't get caught as substandard. You'd think there'd be a minimum amount of wording like maybe 20 or 40 at the least to be considered an ARTICLE. Photos should be considered a BONUS to the ARTICLE ,not the other way around .I distinctly remeber when signing up it said Informitive or entertaining ARTICLES needed to be written. I can understand a true gallery article of art photos but ,get real most of these BOLLYWOOD galleries are just SPAM BAM THANK YOU MAM !!! GEEESH!
You should just report Hubs like these if you find them - that's what the button is for. It's up to all of us to help keep standards up
Are we sure this is not about envy, only if Hollywood allows us to their photos, many will gladly do so. It seams that we are going down the same road, of racism blend with deranged Christian thing (Whore). Live and let live, lets concern ourselves with our own hub and let others be.

I just ignore the Indian actress hubs, but it does bug me they are part of HubPages.
People who wish to display their own photography is a form of self-expression just like writing, but there are plenty of other sites where people can find pretty women. I don't get why soft-porn is here.
Hubbers with pictures of Indian actresses, should join orkut. There might be an audience there for such hubs. Good luck to all

I mean all I am saying that stealing pictures of the internet and making a slide show as a hub is not considered spamming, why not write rich informative hubs that will actually make some money...in my opinion those hubbers are wasting big opportunities to earn, if they are just doing it for enjoyment, then there plenty of other sites where you can make photo albums... like flixya that has 100% adsense earnings
They're allowed, but low quality. Tend to get decent traffic, but earn little.
* Waste of server space, probably.
* Waste of time stealing images, definitely; but it wasn't your time.
But, if you think about it high traffic, low quality hubs still get traffic to HP, which means possibility of more traffic in general and overall.
I'll admit to picture posts on my blogs just for traffic, but no semi-naked people though.

Lately as I hubhop, I am finding lots of photo only hubs. Are these considered low quality? It would seem that hubs need to have text of some kind besides a title. I started out flagging them as low quality, but I don't want to put moderators to extra work if these are considered acceptable.What do...

The question of whether poetry Hubs should have 400-word minimums came up in this thread a few minutes ago:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70203#post1528809I've been puzzling about what to do with poetry Hubs I've found while hopping. I haven't flagged any of them, because poetry is a unique...

You all know the hubs I'm referring to, right? The hubs with pictures of beautiful women from India, Pakistan, etc., and a dozen or more links to sites for "the belly button" or whatnot?I flag these, either as low quality or adult -- but isn't there something that can be done to...

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.
