I can't believe that I'm ranked behind people who just link up American Idol highlights.
I asked Hubpages what the deal was and they gave me a runaround. I'm starting to think this is all BS!
Please help renew my faith.
I can't renew your faith in crappy content on here, because its a societal issue, there are all of people out there that have turds for brains.
Certainly you don't mean ME? LOL But... I hear ya! I have gone to check some of the other 'idol' hubs and been shocked to find that they are a few words and like you said... links.
My idol hubs do pretty darn good, but I think it is the 'Mormon' angle and because I do write content along with them.
Best of luck to your figuring this thing out. I checked your most recent post... nice work.
Do you mean the hubscore? In which case - there is a whole long forum thread about that some where, but I can't remember where. I personally don't worry about it any more. I did for a while, but the internal traffic is not worth much financially and it's a lot of work to stay highly ranked LOL
I think darkside has a hub about how it works - worth a look .
Just remember it like this:
Your content will be more entertaining for longer. American Idol information is very dated, and goes out of style when the next season comes out.
LOL I found yourself on the 7th page, and myself - on the 13th! I should probably through a tantrum about that
Just to make a quick comment "Whenever I hit Hubbers I can't see myself unti page 10!
Truthfully next time you hit Hubbers we'll chase hubpage's 25foot tall watch dragon named Baba after you. hahahahahaha
Sorry couldn't help myself....
DJ a little thing my Mom used to say to me whenever I was being a crybaby.....
"May God grant me a favour and bless you with nothing worse in life then being listed on page ten of hubpages."
I keep getting spam emails from you about your Hubs. I think you need to be ranked even lower.
I think 95 is a decent score, I am usually up and down 94-97. Does me just fine.
What - you mean like these?

First of all, thanks to all of you for your support in this endeavor. GOOD NEWS!!! I will not be sending these emails (which I realize can be annoying) anymore!
EVERY NIGHT at 8PM, I will publish a new TOP 5 VIDEOS releasing one for the following day. so anybody that wants to vote has 28 hours to do so.
http:// hubpages.c om/hub/Rock-The-Vote --TOP-5-Most-Thought-Provoking-Videos
will be released tonight at 8PM with WRITERS in mind! All you thinkers can be assured of quality stimulation. If you think of a subject YOU'd like to see, or better yet, if you'd like me to form one in conjunction with one of your future HUBs, I'd be obliged to help out in any way I can.
No more emails I promise!
8PM every freakin' day!
No more emails people
Crybaby spammer. Wow. I only sent them to people I was a fan of.
One person asked me not to send them one again and so i decided not to send them to anyone ever again.
The tone of my email is so evil I can see why you get bent out of shape for it.
Thanks again to gamergirl.
If any of guys actually saw the videos I was posting you might have a had better time than you did with all this.
As usual it's the finger-pointers who win uncontested.
Well, if you mean you not sending any more emails to me, yes, I consider that a "win."
The troubling thing is that you never even considered the fact that I might not want your emails, get numerous unsolicited emails from all over the place including hubpages, and am quite honestly sick to death of them.
You thought you were the only one to say to themselves, "I know - I'll send an email to all those hubbers I like so they can come and look at my hubs."
I ignored the first one and didn't reply. What on earth made you think I was giving you support? Because I couldn't be bothered to send you a snotty reply because I was too busy deleting the hundreds of spam comments on my blogs.
I don't even understand why you are pissed. There is a system in place to get mail from people you are a fan of. You join their fan club and then click to get a notification when they write a new hub. You think I'm too stupid to work that out?
And I get offended when some one writes to me and doesn't even have the common courtesy to put my name on the mail. I spend a lot of time replying to emails and yours was just a tiny waste of my time. In isolation it would have made no difference, but when I consider the fact that you are one of thousands of people who manage to send me an email soliciting something, it's annoying.
The tone of your email has nothing to do with why I didn't want them sent to me. Although the tone is "impersonal." You sent the self same message to all the people you wrote to. You didn't send the message for my benefit, you sent it for yours. See the difference?
I didn't even get snotty here - I just made a joke.
So, just why are you pissed off exactly?
Mark, what you said about my impersonal emails is completely true! I was naive to think, "oh well it's just one more email." I get a ton too.
But I was in no way pissed at you. You left a great and helpful comment. i went looking for it right away.
I don't mind that you posted my email either. Normal people reading this exchange will see it for what it is.
The troubling thing is that you never even considered the fact that I might not want your emails....is not true.
I wrote: One person asked me not to send them one again and so i decided not to send them to anyone ever again. Sounds like considering the fact to me.
I just learned how hook up video links 3 days ago, so if you think I know about spam etiquette ....Maybe this is the best explanation as to why i'm not ranked as high as I would like. My HUBS are nothing like Maddie or Isabella. They are another level.
I just made the mistake of getting excited and improvised a plan to start something fun for us all. Have you seen the lame ass videos people run?
http:// hubpages.c om/hub/Rock-The-Vote --TOP-5-Most-Thought-Provoking-Videos
covers War, Religion, Politics, Music, Dissent.... ya know something for intelligent people to talk about.
Not pissed. I'm just disappointed you guys don't talk about more cool stuff than this.
p.s. LdsNana-AskMormon. I did not mean you at all. You are a sweetheart. I made up the example of American Idol actually. Meeting you was probably the only good reason for this stupid thread.
p.s.s. This whole thing began when I crushed Stacie on the Amy Winehouse thread in Entertainment. Now she's just being the person that she is.
There was no crushing. I haven't even looked or thought about the Amy Winehouse thread since I posted on it, whenever that was. So I haven't even seen this "crushing" thing.
DJ, I see you have issues with me. Do all of us, including me and yourself, a favor: just let it go. Ignore me. I will ignore you. Stop. Thanks.
As much as I usually disagree with Stacie, I'm in full agreement with the post above
You are quite right that it should be OK to send out messages like this. But - I get hundreds of the bloody things. Yours wasn't particularly offensive, and I did not (as I have been known to do) send you a message telling you to piss off and complain to hubpages about you.
I didn't do that because I got the impression that you were trying to be friendly and helpful - and were too naive to realize that this is spam. I figured I would let you learn it the way every one else does
Update: since this lesson learned, I started using LEGAL methods of expanding my HUBs exposure and started using amazon ads which I had I hadn't done prior.
NOW WHEN YOU HIT HUBBERS, I'm on page 3. Whoooo Hoooo!
Props to Stacie for not losing her cool, when I kinda did.
