Are you removing your "sign up for Hubpages" messages when you edit your hubs?
When I went into edit mode on some of my hubs today, one of the "style recommendations" was to remove the sign up for Hubpages link that I put at the bottom of the article. I wonder if others are removing this link and how people feel about this recommendation in general. Part of me realizes that I make zero from sign ups, so I might as well remove them. However, for some reason I am on the fence. Thoughts?
I didn't have very many - I only included them on hubs that offered HubPages advice, but yes, I think that they do need to be removed. HubPages frowns on these, and your Hubscore is likely to be affected.
That's an interesting question. I don't think I've ever added it to any of my hubs, but I have it on my Profile. Does that mean that I should removed my 'sign up' message from there, too? I have no idea if it has ever encouraged anyone to follow the message.
Instead of having the sign-up blurb on your individual hubs, why not put links with your referral code in your links to other hubs you've written instead? I started doing this recently when pinning or using twitter for my own hubs and that of others. I've not seen it do anything yet, but I only began this project recently so it might be too hard to tell.
If I get the results I'm looking for I plan on writing a hub giving specifics on different ways it can be done so we can differentiate where the various sign-ups are coming from, assuming there will be some.

My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to go down or what is the problem?

Hi its Louise again, I was wondering if anyone knew how to edit your hubs so that they can be featured and how often you edit them. I am trying to make blogging into a part time job or full time job but don't know how to get paid doing so and I am a horrible editor of my own stuff. ...

I am screaming with frustration! Most of my hubs have been unfeatured due to lack of traffic. I write about gardening which no one wants to read about in the winter. Spring is coming so I want to get my hubs featured again, but every time I try to edit them, I either get an error...

We're testing out a Facebook Social Plugin at the bottom of the sidebar on hubs. It shows personalized activity feeds (the most interesting recent activity taking place on HubPages) and personalized recommendations (hubs). You can read more about it and other plugins here.

I'm about to post my first Hub article! However, I was just wondering - if I publish it, and later on, I think of something better that I can add in or change, can I change it? Or does it become written in stone?Thank you!
