How do I undo this "Hubpro" rubbish? Why did they destroy my Hub?
I logged on to Hubpages today to find that Hubpages has decided to "select" me to destroy my hub. One of it's staff went in and removed half of my hub and for what? In their almighty knowledge, it has resulted in my best performing hub being destroyed and it's views being cut in half. They removed links to other hubs in the same series and any amazon links. How do I undo these changes, or is this just some kind of late April Fools joke? Hubpro seems to be an excuse to be control freaks!! I'm extremely offended and very close to quitting this mess of a site after many years.
Maybe you made a hub with barely any pictures and 300 words, if not, this is unheard of.
I really cannot comment on it as such a thing has not happened and sort of looks weird. One thing I have observed is number of articles are going down in hub pages. There seems to be some struggle around the corner. Maybe this amputation of your hub is a result of that.
First of all, you had/have the right to opt out of HubPro and you chose not to. So I suggest if you don't want them doing this to any other hub then opt out in the Edit My Profile section under the Account Settings tab.
Secondly without seeing what the article is it is hard to form an opinion on if the changes were truly bad.
Third, many articles that may be moved over to one of the new niche sites are having amazon links removed. The explanation is that the ad is not an identical match to the articles.
Fourth, is it possible the text taken out went off topic or didn't fit in with the rest of the article? Just a thought.
Fifth, are you aware that they send you an email when they do this and you have the ability to change back anything that you don't like changes on right? The email they send lets you easily see both the before and after so you can fix it back to the way it was if that is what your prefer. Just click the email and follow the link. You should be able to correct it back to the way it was before in a matter of minutes. Also you should always keep back ups of your articles somewhere else. Then you could just copy and paste things back together.
I'm not knocking your opinion on the way it was edited, just making sure you understand what you have the ability to do to fix it. Also I have to add that if this bothers or offends you maybe you should consider running your on site. That way you will have total control of your content and won't have to go by the expectations of the professional editors here.
I've had a couple articles edited in HubPro with only minimal disappointments. Some have had horrible experiences with it. I guess I lucked up. I suggest if you continue here, you may want to opt out so you don't have further issues.
1. Not according to the policy, 2. My opinion is that the changes were negative and that's what matters as its my article. Views also dropped by more than 50%. 3. It was moved to a niche site. 4. No. 5. I should have to c & p. They are supposed t
What is not according to policy? I just looked when I answered this and there is a spot to opt out of hubpro in the edit profile section. This has been in play for over a year. It sounds like ur fed up. Lots of writers do better on their own sites.
I had opted out of hubpro. They edited and moved it. Even changed the title. It sometimes pulled in a few hundred views a day. Currently it's at 17. They even butchered the name and cut out my links to other, linked hubs in the same series.
Wow! I don't think I have ever heard of that much being changed. However it was kind of expected our views would drop a bit when moved to niche sites, but that is a significant drop. I'd go to forum and ask for answers from staff.
I already send an email. I was pretty annoyed. I have over 225,000 views on hubpages and it makes me happy that it used to cater to all my writing areas. Now I am left with no choice but to leave, it would seem.
I can understand your frustration. I have 3 account here, but now I prefer my own site where I don't have to deal with their constant changes. This site has become my hobby while my site is where articles with effort and time go. Good Luck!
Maybe its because you copied information from another site, causing them to shut down your hub.
Gavin, that's simply offensive. Research libel. I did not infringe copywrite. The hub is still active. They just messed it up and moved it to one of the new sites.
Thanks for the info. just edited my account setting to 'No" on hubPro
They will be wanting to move it over to one of the new niche sites, or maybe they already have. All hubs moved to the new sites are subject to "snipping" and editing.
Not that I've experienced it, nor am I likely to.

I have been hub hopping lately and I am disgusted with the incoherent garbage that I am coming across - nothing but poorly translated articles of about 400 words, usually without even any formatting. I would say that more than half of the articles I randomly encounter are clearly nothing but spun...

A couple years ago in 2011, I had a hub on another account that went up to 5000 views rapidly. Eventually it waned to about 1000-1300 views. Now after a couple years it gets about a few hundred views a day astonishingly. Would that hub be defined as "going viral?" I know it's not...

Right now, while a Hub is pending, it doesn't show ads, it has a "no follow" tag etc. However our followers get notified and they may share the Hub during that time. It would be nice if that notification could be delayed, too.

I have posted several questions recently as I try to decide if I will write "for" the HUB or write and post on my own domain site.I can see pros and cons for both. Hence my reason for asking several questions the past few days.I have also been trying to answer a lot of my questions on my...

I know the more exposure we have, the more chances for page views. That is not what I am asking about here. I am wondering if we are effected by the quantity of hubs over the quality of maybe a smaller number of hubs.I am looking to delete more older hubs (seasonal in a way) to help boost the more...

I have been pleased with the audience and revenue for my articles on HubPages since joining the site some years ago.I commend the company for creating the successful niche sites at a time when similar sites were folding. My existing articles that moved to those sites have done even better than...
