      You overlook the part where you started this 'game'.

      And here I am commenting on your demonstrated behaviour and you're making up stuff and flinging mud.

          You might call it sarcasm, but others call it personal attacks.

          And of course, more of your guessing games. Making things up to throw more fuel on the fire.


          If it sounded like it to you then you're hearing wrong.

          No one else here claims to be a guru, but you want to be an acknowledged expert.

          But tell you what gxsr, you win. We'll give you a crown and you can be king.

          Having read one of your hubs (the one catchily titled "Googladsense|Blogg Traffic Tips") I think I understand the reason for your original post.

          You joined here thinking you could make a lot of money in a very short time, by publishing a few hubs on - of all things - how to make money from Adsense.  In the hub I mention above, you even tell people that they can earn several hundred dollars a month from 5-10 minutes' work!  As the more established hubbers here will tell you (and as I'm discovering myself), that just isn't true.  Basically you've just got a bad case of sour grapes.

          Oh, and BTW: nobody's ganging up on you.  They're telling you the truth - you just don't want to listen.

    As much as I want to respond to this thread I don't want to be seen as one of Darkside's 'hub mob'. What I can offer is some knowledge from one former newbie (myself) to a current newbie.

    If you walk into a forum and proclaim yourself as a guru, you better have the facts to back up your claim - or else you will be called onto the carpet.

    Case in point ... a transgression of my own in the past.

    I emotioned some factoid about adsense that was accurate for those who own their own website, but a factoid that didn't fit at all with how Hubpages operates. I had failed to do my homework and I was called onto the carpet for it.

    Now, I could have screamed foul and spouted how I had been making money on my own sites for years, studied SEO until my ears blead, and could find a great keyword phrase for nearly any topic ... but instead ... I sat back and listened ... and learned A LOT!

    Hubpages is not a site owned by individuals, which makes some things here work A LOT different than they would on an individual website. I needed to learn that lesson quick or I would have never found myself making a profit at this point. The fact is ... knowledge learned elsewhere doesn't always apply everywhere.

    And why was I lept upon for getting my facts wrong? Well, at the time I considered it as you do 20, a hubmob out to supress the facts, but by listening I discovered something interesting ... they were helping me - and what they said definitely helped!

    Fact is, no one remains on a site like this for 2 years unless they really like the forums or they like to make money. Just publishing hubs to publish them? I see no one doing that. And while we have people here that write for the fun of it, we also see them participating in the forums - and don't misconstrue that as meaning that people who write in the forums don't write hubs that can make money - some see the forums as a time-out from writing or a place to go to learn more about making money while writing.

    Darkside is a teacher as he has been here a long time and the advice he gives helps people improve their earnings. The same goes for Relache, Mark Knowles, and many other hubbers I have forgotten to mention.

    You can turn your back to the masters and go your own route or you can listen to them; but to kick sand at them will obviously rile all of those who have been helped by these people in the past.

    20, you claim yourself to be a guru, which makes me wonder why you aren't posting more helpful info in the forums rather than having a war of words with Darkside.

    If you're a guru then share what you know and allow the other members to decide the worth of your knowledge. To stage a battle of words with Darkside doesn't make you look like a guru, and in fact, it makes you look like someone who is just looking to pick a fight with who they consider to be 'the big dog'.

    If you originally overspoke your knowledge then you can say so without any further need for posturing. Whereas, if you possess the knowledge you speak of then I would recommend that you spend more time sharing what you know than attacking those which you don't.

    I can already perceive as I write this that you will misinterpret this as an attack as well and consider me a member of 'Darkside's hub mob', but I consider Darkside to be capable of fighting his own battles - and it is on your behalf that I am in this thread, not his, as I am attempting to help you salvage your credibility.

    So, continue your war with Darkside if you must, but understand that the mob you see forming around you isn't called upon by Darkside, it's manifested by your own actions.

    The sooner you realize this, the sooner you will see the crows disperse - and then you just might discover that many of us are quite downright friendly. smile

      mmm.... If they created it they are entitled to reap the reward however I commend them for making it a community where we also reap benefits from it and find new found acquaintances and friends along the way. If a person is a creator of a business and works twice as hard to maintain it putting in countless hours, money and hard work to keep it going what would be the point of sharing a majority of it? That does not make any sense. So calling them leeches , you are politically incorrect. smile

    "hubber mafia"?

    "brainwashed"?

    seriously, do you really believe that? honest, 20, no one here is a sheep and we all make up own minds and follow no one.

    we all express ourselves freely and don't choose our words to please someone else. you're just plain wrong, and on so many counts. i sense a lot of hurt underneath your lashing-out, and no one here caused it. please try to step back and take a deep breath and think about what you're saying, if you want to thrive here. this is a great community.

    As I see it in biological terms we hubbers have a mutualistic relationship with Hubpages which is facultative to us both.  Or to put it in plain English we both need each other and we both benefit from the relationship!

    Since you asked 20gsxro5

    let me tell you what the deal is:

    On the agreement (I hope you read it before clicking an “agree”) it is stated very loud and clear: the writer makes 60% and Hub pages 40% of the income generated.

    If you think that is hard to understand, try Helium (another freelance site); they will NEVER tell you ANYTHING; not what your traffic is, not what their percentage is – NOTHING

    If you go to Helium’s forum and ask any question that is less than convenient for the site two things will happen:

    1) The Helium’s police (a select group of “writers” all of whom are part of the paid elite will insult you, will call you names and will try to intimidate you. Only recently they admitted to be part of Helium’s staff after swerving up and down that they were volunteers

    2)  Your thread will be deleted if the discussion gets to hot

    I know because it happened to me. Want more details, read http://hubpages.com/hub/helium-nightmare
