I feel there should be a way to identify Hubbers who are experts in their field. Perhaps a voting system based on the best answers to questions or the ratings given to individual hubs. I am thinking about SEO in particular. There is a great deal misguided information being offered on the forums and individual hubs that could potentially damage the rankings and the online business of those who follow it.
I know that another scoring metric might seem excessive to some but I think it might be useful if you are looking for a reliable source of information.
What do you think?
Not sure but I see your point.
If it was about hub advice like SEO only......Like a Business category
I'd say it's sort of ok.
Some of my hubpage advice is basic at best (and more than likely outdated!) in the area of SEO that's why I've gone back and just gone with art as my specialist subject as this is one area I know a lot about, drawing and stuff....
So yes this would be a great idea!
I think you are complaining about me :-)
But you are wrong. You just don't like my opinions on certain subjects. Moreover, you don't even know what advice I actually give. You have just jumped into the middle of other threads and assumed things you have no reason to assume. You are very quick on the draw.
The funniest thing about it is that I often recommend your excellent hubs to newbies. My arguments on certain aspects are valid, but when I go into them in depth at my own hubs, I am very careful to present all sides and often link to hubs written by the very people I disagree with. The linking is not with any malice or disparagement; it is always with a strong recommendation that those are the places to go to learn more.
For example, I expect to soon publish a hub on the subject of our most recent spat. I'm sure you won't bother to read it, but those who do will find a fair examination of the matter and will also find links to hubbers here who explain things from a very different point of view.
I believe in honest discussion and fairness. You have made your views on that rather obvious: you think only those who mindlessly agree with you have any opinions of value.
I am not complaining about you, you never even entered my thoughts when I was posting. And I will read you hub when you publish it. This post was prompted by a couple of hubs I have recently read.
Could I ask a favor, please don’t hijack this thread by spilling another completely unrelated discussion into this one.
I don't hijack threads. I thought I recalled that you were one who accused me of giving bad advice, but I should have checked that, so I apologise. Nevertheless, someone said that, so my point stands, just with a mistaken target.
I think that is what it will come down to: certain people will gang up and insist that other folks opinions have no value.
It would end up like the religious forums, some of the expert advice is "opinion" and not every expert has the same opinion..
Are we going with the Christian or Islamic version of SEO today??
Actually, most professional SEO's more or less agree on what works and what doesn’t, well that’s my experience anyway. One problem is stuff that’s years out of date being pushed as current best practice, for example excessive reciprocal linking. This is probably done with best intentions at heart by people who have little or no experience.
As to nonsense like link trades, all yiu have to do is point at Google's Link Schemes page. It is short and to the point.

Hi,I've signed up and am ready to start making hubs in my specialised subject, but I was wondering what the earning potential of hubbig (if that's a word) actually is. I realise it all depends on how attractive your pages are and how good they are etc, but what are people actually earning? I am not...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

In the few years that I have been on this site, I have heard that you can increase traffic by picking short titles. I have also read that you can get traffic by choosing a long title and including many search phrases in your title, and also by picking long titles that are specific for a...

I came across this piece of advice in the first part of the Learning Center:"Write to educate your readers on your topic: create content on subjects that you are an expert; don't create content for search engines, a link, or to sell a product. Hubs that are written for readers have a higher...

I now have 11 hubs that are not indexed by google - nothing published since July 12 (the last one was published on the 9th and indexed yesterday). Normally I've seen then set up with 24 hours, occasionally in 48, but now it's 8 days and not done!!??
