Haven't seen this before:
Any chance the average visitor will know Mr or Ms Maven?
And just how related is that content?
This came right out of the blue. And it can go back into a black hole if it isn't radically improved. To be frank, I think it should be got rid of.
Emailed the team with a strong disgruntlement. I hope they think again and get rid of this nauseating pop-up.
Boohoo... Whether they know what Maven is or not does not matter. What matters is if the content is at least in the least bit related and whether the recommendations are intrusive or not. It is not and it is respectively.
Strangely enough, I care about who recommends stuff to me. Especially if I suspect they might be mad,
In the case above, I visited a page about palm trees and was recommended a poetry analysis, some Filipino proverbs, a chemistry set and a bunch of animals with sharp teeth.
No, the articles from Maven that I saw last night were not related at all. They were all those booty articles that were removed from the recommended section last year.
Maven should write a hub about this. They could call it "How to Destroy Traffic From Google"
This morning my "Maven Recommends" are hubs written about dogs. Not all of them are health related, but an article about naming your dog is at least in the ballpark.
Yuk! This is awful. I've just seen "Maven recommends" on one of my WanderWisdom articles.
For anyone who's not yet seen it, it's a broad stripe at the bottom of the screen advertising "recommended" hubs and it overlays your article. It hides a large portion of the article underneath. This is going to have people rushing to close the page and go to another site PDQ.
I haven't witnessed this phenomenon on any of my articles (yet), but it certainly looks irritating. Is it only on certain niche sites?
*EDIT* scratch that, just saw it on one of my articles on ReelRundown. Yikes, that's intrusive and annoying.
For whatever it's worth, it came up when I was looking at my article on a desktop PC, but not when I looked at the same article on mobile.
if you are viewing on your phone, it will cover the entire screen. You can temporarily remove it; however, if you decide to respond to an article in the comment section (while doing this on your phone) it will pop back up and cover the entire screen, including the comment section.
It will? Bummer.
Well, pfffft. That sucks
If you view on the desktop it can also cover the entire screen depends on when it pops up and if you decide to scroll up From what I saw, all the recommended are related in my case, same as from the recommended sidebar. Four of the five are even my hubs, but then again these are the ones that show up in the recommended section anyway. Still not a fan of it unless it pops up only when the reader is about to exit a page (a upward scroll triggers it from what I notice).
Please get rid of it. Sometimes it covers the Edit and Stats menu on top and the Comment section below.
I'm pretty sure Google is not going to be a happy camper about this.
Not too bothered as clicking it away stops it reappearing. All of the Maven recommends on the hubs I checked were other articles by me
I posted on another thread. Readers are not going to like this because it cuts their thought process as pop-ups do. Terrible idea, I wish the Team would check with us first since we know our readers better than they do.
Honestly, it's really irritating and would cause most readers to leave immediately. Hoping Hubpages gets rid of it.
That's what I thought too. But average time on page is not statistically very different so far.
Agreed. This widget pop-up is a bad idea. Viewers will leave leave leave and not return once they know it's a site-wide pop-up.
Emailed the team because I'm disgruntled.
Now the Maven recommends articles are related, at least, for a few of my hubs. I think there has been some improvement since the last few hours.
Is this work in progress, therefore?

This new feature is a handy widget that appears at the bottom of your screen with suggested articles. These suggestions are related to the site you are on, and only appear when you scroll up (aka, when you are ready to move on to the next read). Instead of having to backtrack to the top of the...

Does anyone else find the Maven recommended articles that pop up at the bottom of the hubs you are reading to be totally unrelated to the type of articles you read? For instance I keep getting things like “Sexy 70 Year Old Women, “ “Female Fitness Models and Competitors,” “Are Blacks the Cursed...

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...

How do you comment on someone's article? I have tried to comment on a few articles but couldn't find the place to do it.
