      Hi there,

      Sorry, that's not an article. You need to write around 800-1,000 words.

      What on earth is a 'newbang'?

      And 'boringness' is not a word.

      HubPages is not a blogging platform.  Only magazine style articles that are about 1,000 words are published here.  If you wish to start a blog, take a look at Blogger or Wordpress, both are free.

    I didn't know what a newbang was, either. I've just discovered that a bang is a real thing with respect to web searches, though I believe "new" and "bang" are supposed to be separate words. Adding an explanation about the term would be one way to improve the article.

    Bangs are basically links that take you to search results on another site.  They are bloody annoying and search engines will eventually weed them out.

    Glad I'm not the only one whose first thought was "WTF is a Newbang?"

    Okay, didn't know what a newbang was either, and that's why I skipped over this post originally. Figured it was one of those things I don't know about that others do, and not into trying any new SEO tricks right now. el oh el. Now I know.

    Bang = the sound a rutabaga makes when it's thrown at a corrugated iron shed.
    New = the first time you hear this.
    Ergo, newbang, well I think you can figure it out from here.

      Last week it was raining cats and rutabagas around here. So the sound those things make hitting my roof are Oldbangs? Thanks, mystery solved?

          My dogs too; they hide underneath my desk. It was the ducks that really hated it. They love water but those rutabagas really bruise when they are coming down so hard.
