There is a hub recommended on nearly every new article, “What Do Men Really Think About Pubic Hair On Women,” that is cause for wonder. With all due respect, it seems so asinine, bothersome, coarse, discouraging, etc that I’ve thought of alternative sites to publish. I’d much prefer so stay on HP, however, and so I ask…
Why can’t the team recommend something more neutral, such as about trees or flowers, rather than something so lowbrow and offensive?
Sounds very sexist to me. Has anyone pointed that out to them?
Yup, there was a big forum discussion on this with two active threads about the issue before Samatha created a new thread to clarify some stuff: https://hubpages.com/community/forum/34 … ed-content
But if it's still happening it's good that it was pointed out.
It is still happening. I found another one just as offensive when I was here last night.
I may have some kind of child protection on my laptop lol. I am thankful I don't see the recommended section yet, just related.
I realize that the team is experimenting but it seems more sensible to have hubs of a feather to flock together. I checked one of my articles last evening (on St. Hildegard), and there were two recommended articles on caterpillars and one on “What’s the Difference Between a Rat and a Mouse?” Granted these are not offensive but what’s the connection?
This is acceptable when they are "testing" not the end result. But the other stuff people see isn't acceptable even as a test IMO.
Yes, I don’t have a major problem with these unconnected and inoffensive articles, but I do think that “related” hubs are a better choice over “recommended.” I’m not referring simply to my articles; I’ve often found interesting and related articles in the sidebar of someone I’m following. It was a helpful feature.
I really like the related feature. I still see it and I always find other interesting articles there. Also, they are almost 100% related to the topic.
I don't think we need both recommended and related hubs IMO. It seems by listing related hubs these would be assumed to be recommended. If there are others that aren't related why would they be recommended unless this is just a way for HP to move traffic to specific articles of their choosing?
I guess this isn't as "fixed" as we were lead to believe.

I thought the main site of HP was not being absorbed by Maven. Either way, I'm seeing this on all the niche sites, as well as on HP. It's not on every article, I can't find this on the popular articles section or any article directly on the main pages. However, if I click on any of the recommended...

This is what it shows under recommended on all my hubs, whether they are on HP or on the niche sites. I've contacted staff already. Something is very wrong I guess.

I am yet to successfully publish any articles with amazon products. I am trying to be clear on the requirements for these articles. I thought articles should be limited to 1-2 products, however I have seen list based articles with multiple products (ideas for gifts) on niche site, Holidappy. Would...

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...
