    I wrote this hub sort of as a jest since it was my 69th hub, it uses a lot of corny innuendo and double entendre. Some people seem to like it, but I've been thinking maybe I might pull in the reigns and put this one in the circular file, anyone want to give their opinion? I'm this close to deleting it....

    Here's the hub in question: … g-Position

      My honest opinion? I didn't like it, not my cup of tea...BUT, if others do, then keep it up (no double entendre meant lol).
      Does it get traffic, does it make money?
      I've got a couple of hubs I am thinking of deleting too, but I know that they are so bad people click on the adverts just to get away. So, because of that, I might leave them..still considering my options.

    I have thought of deleting several of mine because they are just going down and down more and more.
    Am I being penalised for not attending the hubs and forums enough ? Maybe I should just pull the plug altogether because I can't be there all the time due to illness.
    I don't understand why my hubscore is falling so far so fast. I have tried to do what I can with forums, when I can.
    What is the problem?
    Any advice, anyone can give me advice please. I am really serious about pulling out altogether !!!  Beautybabe.

      Beauty, for one traffic slow right now for many.  Your score is a wonderful 82!!  Be proud!  If you are sick, then let yourself get better. 

      I use re-write if the hub has fallen below the "no follow" number, but I stopped doing that. 

      Oh, I just went and looked at your profile and you have a new fan (errr follower). 

      You have 37 hubs, don't pull them unless you have another place to put them.

      Aww Sweetheart, don't you dare pull out. I have no idea why your hubscore is falling, but I do know so long as it stays above 75 your links will be dofollow so have a greater potential to earn you money.
      All the experienced hubbers say to ignore it, but you're right I am seeing your hubscore dropping. Anyone?
      Anyway, don't you worry about it, you just worry about getting yourself better smile
      I love your writing, ignore the numbers and keep writing when you get the chance, and btw I hardly participated in the forums until this week and my hubscore has dropped, so I doubt participation has that much to do with it smile

    BB, it depends why you came here in the first place. If it was because you want to share your writing, then ignore your hubscore and enjoy writing and sharing.

    Hello Artist Buddy-
    I thought it was funny. I wouldn't pull it. But it is entirely up to you.

      Well you seem to like it HC as do a few other of my regular "followers" (still not used to that term, can't we call each other liasons or maybe word warriors or something, I dunno) anyway, if you like it, maybe I will keep it. Mike Licktieg and Green Lotus chimed in with some pretty positive feed back so maybe I'll just keep it. Thanks for the vote of confidence!!!

    I am not with asense anymore. They pulled me off.
    My girlfriend thought it would be funny to get on and just click and click and click on my computer one day.
    I didn't know at the time as I was in the shower with my carer. She was mucking around. Until I got the email the next day from adsense.Had now idea she had been doing this and went right off as I felt that it would be detrimental to me somehow and it was as you are now learning fellow hubbers. I have been too embarrassed to bring this forward until now.
    I see everyone talking about money they make, and I am a very honest person and would not do anything to get ahead dishonestly.
    I did write to adsense to explain this to them, but they said they still saw me as a threat to others for some reason.
    I just had to accept it at the time.

    It upset me though because I could, as you say, have been making money in order to pay for mounting medical bills as my husband is still out of work and we could really have used the extra income as I can't work.

    I am only saying this now as I felt you should know since you may think that I am earning from adsense, as I should be, had I not been taken off their books so to speak.

    So, you see I do have a big problem here, still without an explanation and I am at a loss as to what to do. Now what do you say?

    I have told you all now so there is nothing more to say just that I am glad it is out in the open now as I know that I have been supported by many of you in the past.

    I thank you all once again for your support and advice
    Love Beautybabe.

    Just like to addd to this.
    I have stayed in because I have enjoyed the positive feedback on my poems and stories, not because of the money obviously since I have not been in adsense since the second month I joined and as you see I have been here on HP's now for four months.

    So that should tell you how dedicated I am to HP's and its hubbers, who have become both followers and friends to me, and not to making money out of this.

      Go to redgage. and you can post up links to the stuff you've got here. They pay you for content and they count your stuff here as content. You can also put up photos on their own and bits and pieces, and adsense has nothing to do with how they pay you.
      I'm really sorry about what happened to your adsense account sad
      Every penny helps in your situation and well looking around that site they pay better than here - at least short term.

      sorry to hear that beauty babe. That is rough. If you're any good at perfect grammar (I'm not so hot at it) hires writers for specific jobs too.  Best of luck!
