    The above is the text from "Recommended Hubs" on my article "Worlds Fair Collectibles".

    A previous hub on S& H Green stamps had an article entitled :How To Shave Your Butt!

    This is outrageous.
    Get out why you still can!
    I'm 100% sure Hub pages is biting the dust like all the rest.
    And the reason I'm not getting any hits is because NO ONE CAN FIND THEM!

      And in the meantime a 6th grade student wants to study Colonial Printers and Publishers. They find the article and get sidetracked by a recommended hub titled something like: "What men Want from Women in Bed"
      Which article do you think will get read?

    1. I've never seen you before in nearly 9 years. 2. You're wrong about Hubpages 'biting the dust.'  3. If your content gets little traffic, it's entirely your own fault.

    Sounds like that pesky coding problem hasn't been completely solved yet.

    Something like this maybe?

    X=search-hub-text-for-noindex
    If X Then
       Exit
    Else
       recommendation-procedure
    End If

    Actually, why not just block all hubpages.com domain hubs from the recommendation procedure altogether? Linking to the hubpages.com domain isn't that good of an idea anyway.

    Am I the only one who never looks at the "recommended" or "related hubs" on my articles?

    I never would've even noticed this phenomenon if there weren't a dozen forum threads ranting about it.

      If you look at your hubs while editing or whatever you would notice these I guess (when present). They stand out. I didn't notice either until lots of forum threads about it. But just once, only once while writing a new hub in the preview I got these recommended articles other times its usual related hubs that go unnoticed.

      It's not about you seeing them, it's about our readers seeing them smile

      For example, I have a lot of hubs about a certain video game. In the past, the "recommended" section had more articles about that same game, most of them written by me since I've written about 70% of HP articles about that game. That helped boost traffic since people "browse" from there.

      Now it's unrelated pornographic/trash taking up the "recommended" section instead. I feel OP's frustration, even if they didn't articulate it very well.

        I keep getting the hub on pubic hair on Owlcation, on articles that middle school kids read. I wrote to the administration, but they are playing dumb, and asking me what articles of mine that article shows on. It's on HP, so never made a niche, and they should just delete it.

        We can't write about romance unless it's at about an 8th grade level, as I've been chastised about romantic pieces I've written in a Venus astrology series.. Gay articles about anything, no matter how sanitized, get kicked off. So why should I have to have this trash on my niche worthy work? And it's been on here for years. Wait until somebody gets it on one of their Christian hubs, and then they will do something about it.

        I also didn't have time to go back to over 140 hubs to see where it shows up.

      Yeah, no kidding.  It's a recommended article on at least half of my hubs.  Maybe more those are just the ones I've seem it on when editing or checking something specific.  Short of calling up all my articles to see, which I don't have the time for, I have no way of knowing just how many it's listed on.  Not that I have written anything at all it would be related to, not even close.

    Makes you wonder what determines the "Recommended:" selections. It surely doesn't seem to be the article they are displayed on.

      Wendy Iturrizaga (Princessa) is a middle-aged woman in France who seems no longer active at HP, according to her HP profile. I don't know why this particular article of hers is so much recommended now. It appears as recommended on many of my unrelated articles as well.

    I mentioned earlier in this thread that I never used to look at the stuff that popped up in the "Recommended" section on my pages.

    ...but of course, now that this thread (and others like them) have made me aware of this situation, I can't help but notice the kind of junk that's getting stapled to the side of my articles, because most of the time it's hilarious.

    For example, right now I'm writing a review of the new Metal Church album, which isn't published yet, but these are the "recommended" articles currently showing on the unfinished hub:

    https://hubstatic.com/14319530.jpg

    ...needless to say, I HAD to click on "Erica Mena Breaks Internet With Graphic Horse Video," cuz I was like "Good Lord, please don't tell me this chick is gonna be doing a horse," haha.

    (Also, "Graphic Horse Video" would be a great name for a band.)

    As it turns out, the title is typical click bait BS, cuz the article is benign gossip rag junk about some reality TV performer I've never heard of, from the show "Love and Hip Hop." Yeah, I'm sure all the Metal Church fans who will be reading my album review are HUGE hip-hop fans who LOVE that show so they're all gonna click this link. Pffft!

    The site these articles come from, "MTO News," claims to be "The Most Visited African-American News Network." I'm not African-American but I think I can safely call BS on that claim, if this is an example of the poorly written crap they peddle.

    I still refuse to get my undies in a bunch about this, cuz experience has shown that when my articles move to a niche site, the "recommended" box starts displaying stuff that is more relevant.

    However, I will continue to mock the crap that shows up there in the meantime, until Maven/HP gets their you-know-what together and deals with the issue.

    I think these are getting worse  and more graphic all the time. Pretty soon we will be wishing the hair style ones were back. I'm seeing these next to articles recently moved to niche sites -- mine and those of other writers.

    My recommended section had cleaned up quite nicely. Now I'm seeing cross niche site recommendations again. I thought that was a bad idea? Owlcation was recommending all Pairedlife articles. Pethelpful was showing Bellatory (which I've never visited), pairedlife, & HP. Delishably shows Owlcation & HP. You get the idea. The section is a mess!

    I thought they were finally getting it fixed. Looks like it is worse than ever sad HP articles are again being recommended on the niche sites. Some of the recommendations are articles that I've already clicked on and read (when I was at the niche site itself). Why would I want to read those articles again?

      Titiaposted 14 months agoin reply to this

      At least they're not the filthy ones we see on other hubs.

      1. Shesabutterfly profile image95
        Shesabutterflyposted 14 months agoin reply to this

        They may not be as filthy, but I wouldn't consider most of the content something I want to read and it can still be offensive and distasteful to some of my readers. Especially some of the pairedlife articles I've seen. If I want to read something on a different niche site I will go there directly and search for something.

        The fact still remains that cross niche site links especially to the HP home domain ( where most of the filthy article links remain) is not a good idea. Whether the articles are filthy, offensive, or perfectly fine and related to the article being read they should keep the links within the same site.

        If something is being recommended to me, it should be because I am likely going to want to read it. Right now it seems like they still need to do a lot of work on their algorithums, because the section is all over the place. Some niche sites have great recommended sections, while others clearly do not.

        However, if they simply want to get click throughs then I guess this is the way to go. Although I wouldn't consider this a good way to get traffic. We all know search engine traffic is the best in regards to a steady traffic flow. This type of traffic won't last long, especially if they show articles people have already read or clicked through on. Which is the case for most of my current recommended section across all my niche site articles.

  18. Natalie Frank profile image94
    Natalie Frankposted 14 months ago

    I thought they won't link from a niche site back to HP?  We aren't allowed to do it at the end of one of our articles so I just assumed they wouldn't do it in the recommended or related sections.
