I got a comment on my Pointe Shoe Brands Hub and was stunned to click on her name and find myself at a BBC website!
Just hope not in the scandals and gossip department linking you to some MP with an orange in his mouth or some such...
However, I wanted to know that:
Can't just anyone post a comment with a link to BBC?
Yes. Anyone can do it. I just posted a comment with the name of the journalist and the link in her hub about Scottish Dances, to see if it was possible. I've seen this kind of things done before. Im sure someone played a practical joke on Marisa.
extra-ordinary IQ-probably extra terrestrial IQ.
Yeah! you have to be an alien to play that kind of joke !
I suspect you are?Perhaps the news is true.Whatever it is, I never thought the news post might have another side,
So I look like an alien ? And were you talking about my IQ ? Well thanks then ! I love to be an alien!
And there's always another side to each story !
To the news as well. LOL
No, you think like an alien :You always find the funny side of a story,there is another hubber who almost think like you-Greek.Where is Greek?I read many comments in hubs,and I must say some hubbers really make great comments that are more funny than any jokes.I guess Misha,Badcom and Greek make great forum post. Unfortunate badco is missing from forum posts.thanks tantrum.
The bbc web site should be listed under hub metrics I should think. I've had interest from the bbc on one of my hubs and that's how I knew, but they didn't leave a comment.
As I said I left a message just like the one she got in another of her hubs. The one about Scottish Dances. And then I left another one bellow that one, as tantrum, explaining I was only trying to see if it was possible to do so, as I'm researching for a hub I'm writing. Actually I just finished it. I'm publishing it in a couple of hours. That's all.
Its nice when someone of importance comments, I had a comment from a British Models mum before
That's cool, Marisa! Congrats! It's exciting when something like that happens.
Good to see you back tantrum!
You didn't come to the forums or did they ban you?
Thanks Tantrum for raining on my parade.
I'm not dumb - of course my first thought, when I saw the comment, was whether it was genuine. But I can't see how anyone could benefit from faking it. And if it's a practical joke, it's not funny - there's no punchline. Different if they'd made the link to something amusing - or come out and told me it was fake after the event.
Well then you should delete the one I posted in your other hub. You deleted my comment and left the fake Claudia Richmond one on.
I told you it was fake, after the event. LOL
As you can see above I answered the comment of Ultimate Hubber saying
'Yes. Anyone can do it. I just posted a comment with the name of the journalist and the link in her hub about Scottish Dances, to see if it was possible. I've seen this kind of things done before. Im sure someone played a practical joke on Marisa'
'As I said I left a message just like the one she got in another of her hubs. The one about Scottish Dances.

I'm publishing it in a couple of hours. That's all.'
So you should delete that fake comment ,as it's of no importance.
You know it's me, but people reading your hub wouldn't know. they will believe it's a true comment.
I'm sure you wouldn't want to deceive any one.
Thanks for pointing that out tantrum, I deleted yours but not your fake one. Now fixed.
And it would be a pretty weird person who saw any humour in it as a practical joke, IMO. Since no one else knows, it would amuse no one else but the perpetrator. And it's not even clever - I'm surprised you even had to try it to know it can be done.
At least the rest of us brought umbrellas. We're tickled for you.
Wheres the trick? If that is research I imagine the end result must be quite feeble
Sunforged, I just read the Hub and I think what Tantrum is suggesting is that if you have a Hub that's not doing well, you can write a controversial comment on your own Hub, masquerading as someone else, to get attention.
Which I'm guessing means she thinks I made up the BBC comment myself, too.
You're wrong. I never said or thought you made up the comment. I don't think you need to do that, if you have a 100 score. So don't assume what I think or not. You're not God LOL
If I think that ,means I know your hub wasn't doing well, which I don't. I'm sure all your hubs do well. Or not?
Why is it so important what I think or what I do ?
I said before case close.
Let it rest LOL
You don't understand because you haven't read my hub. As I state in it, it's not a serious hub.
so if the 'trick' is feeble or not it's of no consequence.
anyway the trick is good to bring traffic to hubs. I've seen it done before. Maybe you didn't.
I hope Bill Gates or Carlos Slim visits one of my eBay hubs - not just to leave comments, but to buy the most expensive item there

OK, it was only an old bloke sitting with his wife outside Priceline in the local shopping centre. I smiled at him and his good lady as I passed, and he asked.... "Don't you write about cars on the Internet?""Yes I do" I beamed." I read your article on the BMW 5 series...

I just want to share my good news that I just got promoted to Assistant Manager. I don't want to name the store. I've been waiting for some time to get this so I am pretty psyched about it.

I always like when I see a bunch of zeros. It doesn't matter whether I ring up groceries and it's 100.00 even, or buying a couple shirts and it comes to 30.00 even. So when I saw a bunch of zeros down on my stats, it caught my attention! Lo and behold I have 1000 comments today!!! Woo hoo!!

Just a couple of minutes ago, I got my first Adsense check. I reached the pay out amount last December. It's not much in US dollars - $130 but if you translate it to local currency, that's equivalent to a one - month minimum salary / wage here! So I'm celebrating, and it's a wonderful post -...
