    What's changed in a year?

    I'm just logging into HubPages again after being offline for a year. I was quite active before with 37 hubs and 92 followers but guess I just got busy and stopped being active. Anyways, got some ideas for new hubs so thought I'd log in and start writing again.

    But has much changed? I haven't kept up to date with HP news, I am noticing the layout of my account is different but are there any 'not so obvious' changes?

    Welcome back, the changes you see are very recent as in the last week, as for anything else, there are tips and advise as you write your hubs, goals so you know how many words per pod then total. Have fun.

    I've only been a member since this summer, but I know that there's no more title tuner. I think that overall the mission of hubpages has stayed the same. I know that it's important to regularly update your hubs if you want them to stay at the top of the list in search engine results because "old" or "inactive" webpages tend to get pushed towards the back of results if it seems like they're out of date or old

    Glad to see you back and looking forward to your hubs. There are many changes on hubpages which I really like.  No more "join hubpage" on your hubs.

    There are changes with amazon ads as well as ebay.  If your hub is well done, it may qualify for "Editors Choice."  Best thing for you to do is read all about changes, etc.  http://hubpages.com/forum/hubpages

    Again, welcome back!

    A lot of changes have been centered around mobile users.  A lot of people use their cell phones and such to browse the net, and HP wasn't formatted for that.  Changes have been made for that.

    Unfortunately, profits have been cut due to mobile users.  But seem to be picking back up.

    I am new. There are changes every month. Some writers were not happy. They complained about the money. They were getting for their hubs. I like hubpages. I love it. It keeps me busy. You are welcome back to hub pages.

    It is my own opinion but I believe Hubpages have made every effort to become more of a tool for the professional writer.
    Its rating system does nothing to encourage the casual writer or the amateur.
    Don't get me wrong its still a good tool to hone your writing skills but does nothing for your bank balance unless you devote hour after hour each day to writing.

      Hubpages is just for fun. I don't bother with the rating system because it's not consistent and doesn't have a reliable method of calculating scores.
      In order to get money from the ads you need a LOT OF VIEWERS
