    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 page, this feature will make it easier to keep your flow going.

    We apologize for not sending out a notification sooner, we were ironing things out right up to the last moment!

        It pops up on my downward AND upward scrolls halfway down any desktop or laptop page on HP, hurts my eyes, and causes a physical headache for me.

        This Maven Recommends pop-up is ill thought out and will undermine the niche site value. Viewers will leave and I can't blame them.


        It needs to be removed immediately.

      I'm sorry but this is a very serious issue. Any pop-up at any time on an article is potentially a disrupter and that can lead to immediate abandonment of the page. It just doesn't work. It will put people off. And once they know this pop-up will appear on a site they'll avoid it. Simple.


      The majority of my viewers need to spend a decent amount of focused time on a page. Having a pop-up repeatedly in their faces isn't conducive to close study.

      Perhaps the HP/Maven team need to get round the table again and rethink. We've just had a Google update which may affect some niche sites negatively. This Maven Recommends pop-up will only add to the confusion.

      This pop-up should be removed before it's too late.

        +1- Popups are a no-no in any circumstances. They are spammy, offensive and annoying; an invitation to quit reading the page they appear on.

      I'm finding this feature annoying.  Can anyone on the team explain why this is a good idea?  Was any testing done before rollout?  Is any monitoring of reader engagement being done subsequent to rollout?  I'm anxious about this new feature because I am finally (after many years) starting to get significant traffic increases and not incidentally making good money.  I don't want to lose traffic or money because someone got the brilliant idea that popup recommendations would be a value add without considering the impact on readers, authors and niche sites.

      Why should we keep writing high quality articles to have annoying pop ups appear on them to distract our readers? My earnings are so low now I don't even bother to write.

        But the problem is that this hub of yours is on hubpages.com. There are no good hubs that are left on hubpages.com unless they are new or the author has a lot of hubs and is waiting for the 14 days to pass before the next submission. The lack of good hubs results in bad recommendations. Try checking out the niche sites and you will see better-related hubs and recommendations.

          That's not entirely true. I have a few good ones left on HP and I don't have a lot of articles waiting for submission. The staff is taking a long time going through ques and no longer gives us the option to resubmit without wasting another submission. One of mine the staff has had in its que for over a year now. It gets some traffic, but I'm stuck waiting for the staff to finish it before it can be moved. I've edited and resubmitted a few times but it still hasn't moved so its not going anywhere any time soon.

              Yep and I've contacted staff, but they can't do anything. I've done the edits, but I'm done wasting submissions on it. I've pretty much given up on it at this point and am putting my efforts elsewhere.

                  It was "accepted" but needed a few edits. Was moved to the que for the staff to edit before they move it. I was given a few suggestions to complete and resubmit, but it still wasn't accepted and moved.

                    In addition the the suggestions they gave you, did you go through all the requirements for a stellar hub and update to get to a 10 rating on the QAP scale?

                    I once wasted a submission and had to wait 60 days to resubmit. I learned my lesson from that and started checking all my updates against the QAP rating scale. I always tried to reach a 10 rating on the scale and now have all my hubs in niche sites.

                    Here is the scale...

    5. OldRoses profile image96
      OldRosesposted 3 months agoin reply to this

      Okay, that was weird.  I just finished writing a new hub and went into preview mode to check the formatting, etc.  The new Maven Recommends widget appeared as I scrolled.  Why?  It's a preview, not a published hub that the entire internet can read.  No one is going to see it except me before I hit the Publish button.

  2. eugbug profile image97
    eugbugposted 3 months ago

    The problem is that a reader may need to examine a diagram in an article, and have to scroll up and down several times, referring backwards and forwards between text and image. So this is very annoying when it suddenly blots out the screen.

    1. chef-de-jour profile image98
      chef-de-jourposted 3 months agoin reply to this

      I agree. This pop-up will undermine the viewer's experience and they might not return once they know the whole niche site is being bugged by these nauseating things.

      I think the HP team need to get rid asap.

  3. lobobrandon profile image89
    lobobrandonposted 3 months ago

    Just saw this thread, and as I commented on another, yes it does seem to show only on an upward scroll. I'm happy with that, but an upward scroll can happen pretty much anytime.

    Question: do people really scroll upwards when they are done reading? I would think they just hit the back button or the x to close the tab.

    Instead of saying Maven recommends why not say we recommend? I know it's all about getting the Maven name out there, but Maven recommends on a Dengarden article when the hubs are all from Dengarden anyway? Isn't it about niche site branding too? Why not say Dengarden recommends? Lots of management in this decision and I do not expect an answer, but I had to throw it out there.

    1. chef-de-jour profile image98
      chef-de-jourposted 3 months agoin reply to this

      I've emailed the team because I think this is a potential disaster. It needs to be removed asap.

      Many of my viewers need focused time on a page and because I deal with close-up analysis mostly for students they'll not tolerate a distracting pop-up.


      I'm all for innovation but this idea seems not to be have been thought through.

  5. eugbug profile image97
    eugbugposted 3 months ago

    I think it would be better to popup the widget when a user clicks/taps the back button after reading a niche site article and before they return to SERPs or their previously visited page. At that point they may be more inclined to browse the related content. Doing it while they're trying to navigate an article is distracting.

  6. Kenna McHugh profile image90
    Kenna McHughposted 3 months ago

    I saw it this morning. First impression, not happy with it because pop-ups are passe. It is piggybacking my article, and I am trying to be in Maven shoes and understand the purpose of these ads.  I don't get it. Why would someone click on another article if they are reading my well-written piece?
    Brandon has a good point, keeping continuity with the niche site is advised.  "HubPages" recommends or "Dengarden" recommends. "Maven" popping up is non-sequitur and confuses the reader. 
    I suggest surveying HubPages writers beforehand because we know more about our site and how it influences our readers.  Please add a turn off button. smile
    I want to like this new feature, but it's irritating, and my readers will not like it.

      I've emailed the team because this is a potential monster. I'm not usually so agitated but this pop-up is going to turn people off and once they know the thing is site-wide they'll not want to return.

      I hope the HP/Maven people will listen and act. Please get rid of this pop-up.

    It is almost impossible to read a pages comments at the moment. If there is a conversation of some kind you really do need to scroll around to find the beginning of that conversation. As soon as you do that, the stuff you are trying to read disappears.

      This pop-up is a shocker. It needs to be removed asap or viewers will leave in droves and never return.

    I agree with most of the other comments. I did find this annoying at first sight. It may just be a matter of getting used to it, we'll see. I do agree it would be better to say HubPages or the niche site recommends rather than Maven though. Reference to the Maven influence seems to just continue to grow.

    1. Will Apse profile image91
      Will Apseposted 3 months agoin reply to this

      The problem is that one time visitors are not going to take the trouble to get used to it. They will simply exit.

      Also, the links are not all within a particular niche. They got rid of the interlinking of niche sites in the sidebar because it was bad SEO, now they have reinstated it in the popup.

      Personally, I hate seeing work being wasted, so I hope they can adapt the feature to work constructively.

  10. EricDockett profile image97
    EricDockettposted 3 months ago

    I have no problem with this the way it currently appears. Maybe it has changed since yesterday.

    The linked content is, for the most part, on the same site and highly related. It appears when you scroll up, but goes away when you scroll down again, so it doesn't seem that intrusive to me.

    Problems start when HP links out to crazy, unrelated and sometimes disgusting content on other Maven sites, but that doesn't appear to be happening, at least that I can see. Is someone else seeing it?

    I'm sure the Team will be extensively testing, but if this widget can keep people on the niche sites longer it is a good thing for all of us.

    The only negative I agree with is that is should not say "Maven Recommends". The reader will likely have no idea who or what Maven is, and might be confused when they look up and see a different name on the banner at the top of the screen. It should be specific to the niche site (Dengarden Recommends, etc).

      It is better now. It covers less of the screen and the recommended links seem to be more relevant. Also the X to get rid of the popup is easier to see.

      They need to check the visitor reactions, though. See if we get fewer comments, lower dwell times etc.

      If there is no improvement in engagement stats, it might not be worth keeping.

      1. lobobrandon profile image89
        lobobrandonposted 3 months agoin reply to this

  12. Glenn Stok profile image96
    Glenn Stokposted 3 months ago

    I discovered this yesterday before seeing this thread.  I agree with everyone else that it is extremely annoying. Pop ups in general are frowned upon. I have no idea why Maven thinks this is good for us. It will have a negative effect, just like when they listed sexual content several months ago, and also when they had annoying “vibrating images” in ads. Now this!  Looks like Maven keeps coming up with dangerous experiments.     

    Eric made a good point earlier, that people have “no idea who or what Maven is.” To make this even clearer, readers from organic traffic don’t know Maven, especially since the heading at the top has a different name. In my opinion, I think this will cause people to think the pop up is some kind of spam.

    1. chef-de-jour profile image98
      chef-de-jourposted 3 months agoin reply to this

      Glenn, I agree 100%. I'm trying to picture one of my viewers intent on some serious study of a literary analysis, scrolling up and down for facts and ideas, interconnecting and so on...when suddenly here's an intrusive pop-up splashed with Maven Recommends.

      Big or small, pop-ups are an intrusion and are irritating. I think this idea is too risky and will turn people away from the niche sites. I like the theory that says most folk when they're after a quality page of information go for the path of least resistance that is, they prefer not to tolerate interference in their quest for useful and valued content.

    I was just on the History.com website and the Maven pop-up appeared at the bottom of the screen. No idea what to make of that, but it looks as though it might drive traffic to our articles.

    1. Glenn Stok profile image96
      Glenn Stokposted 3 months agoin reply to this

      I’ve gotten the same pop-ups there too, as well as on A&E (aenetworks.com).

      I noticed that A&E Television Networks and History.com include the Maven logo with the Maven key icon on their sites, indicating that they are “A Maven Channel.”

      I’m confused by this, because when I Google “Who owns A&E Networks” I don’t see anything about Maven.

      In any case, I don’t think this will bring us traffic though. Their pop up’s (same as we see here) only include articles on their respective sites.

    Severely detracts from the user experience in my opinion.

    Google's whole mission is to gauge how a user experience is and rank websites accordingly. If they don't figure this out now, they certainly will in a future update. Hope it doesn't burn all of us too bad when the shoe drops!

    Bad idea in my opinion. A definite liability just to get a few extra page views. Might come back to bite!

    Ugh.

  15. AliciaC profile image98
    AliciaCposted 3 months ago

    Based on the articles that I've just been reading, the pop-up has moved to just below the last comment. I think this is a much better place for it. The problem is that if it's closed, the pop-up reappears every time a reader scrolls into that area and stays open until it's closed again.

    I don't know how many readers will scroll to the last comment repeatedly, but if they do, they are in for a frustrating experience. I discovered the behaviour of the box accidentally when visiting an article with no comments.

    Clicking an X on a box generally means you no longer have to see the box during that visit to the site. Having it reappear no matter how many times you click the X or being forced to leave it open is annoying.

    1. Will Apse profile image91

        Actually, to be fair I should add another thing that I've realized. When I start to write a comment, the pop-up that I triggered by going to the bottom of the page disappears.

  16. eugbug profile image97

    I'm finding that it still appears in the body of the article, not just after comments. After 3 down/up scrolls, it doesn't appear on the 4th scroll up or subsequent down/up scrolls.

        The intent of this project is to help readers discover more quality content to follow up with on that particular network site. We are monitoring user engagement and will be making adjustments to improve user experience based off of our findings.

        Your articles will be promoted on nearby pages, which should increase traffic and direct readers that are looking for the next thing to you.

          Why would readers want to "discover" articles not related to what they are reading? Not to mention it still pops up when scrolling, which is kind of a nuisance when you're trying to find something.

          Owlcation has a plethora of unrelated topics. If I'm reading a humanities article I'm likely not going to be interested in electrical engineering which is a very specific and in my experience hard subject to learn. If I'm not looking to learn about engineering the pop ups are annoying and irrelevant. Will these pop ups eventually 100% relate to the content being read or just whatever is on that particular niche site?
