    I just did a search for HubPages in Google...

    The first result that came up for the last 24-hour search was...

    HubPages . in (I put the space in there on purpose, as they seem to be leaving lots of blank info, too.)

    Hmm...

    I think I like the California site waaaaaay better! smile hehe

    Ive seen that (.in) and also .ca (canada) they probably have versions for all the major markets in a play to get better results in localized search

      The .in isn't a HubPages.com owned site. Someone "borrowed" the name...

      and the .ca site - it's a parked domain's page of nothing but ads...

        not sure how I can hunt them down

        perhaps they have them arranged as subdomains and/or server locations

        z.hubpages.com (new zealand server)

        Ive seen .ca and .in also in results - but cant spend the time to replicate at the moment


        I realize you have found something different

          smile we'll agree to disagree on that new zealand server thing... smile
          ... or at least i will... smile

          it's okay sunforged. don't worry about tryin' to track it down for me... though i certainly appreciate the thought... smile

            sorry, netherlands, 3 am here - z created the association


            z.hubpages - netherlands

            .hubpages - california



            another random sub - hubwbe11.hubpages.com

            ive seen other country codes but seems irrelevant now that Ive seen the Hubpages India site you listed

    It appears to be a cheap ripoff of hubpages. The articles appear to be written by someone whose first language is not English. Some of the articles also appear to be duplicate content (but not from here.)

    Read this: http://www.hubpages.in/about

    Sound familiar but in stilted English?
