Do you think there are people here who get paid by outside interests to post on the forum? Just curious what you think.
I think it's more likely people are paying others to write hubs (which can be a part of SEO practise for a website). But the forums? Not sure why anyone would care that much about the HubPages forums to pay for it.
Being a "newbie" to hubs, I never even thought about it. However anything is possible and you know people can do some pretty off the wall things.
probably. it could be part of a social media budget to post on high trafficked forums.
or to keep the forums buzzing to bring in traffic.
I was thinking about this the other day.
I think they do.
If there is a market for it, then you can bet that those who have the funds/resources to pay market value or set market value will utilize it.
I've been wondering the same thing since I saw this thread - thought I was missing something ...
Maybe a thread about hair products? And then the paid poster writes.. I love x brand because of x, y and z. Just a guess, lol.
I keep seeing ads on oDesk and other places for people to post on forums to promote something or other.
As a matter of fact specific governments hire people to promote government agendas
on forum sites.
I see recurring spam posts for shoes and for how to burn to DVDs.
I would think it is more than possible. If I were going to pay someone it would be to make hubs.
For at least a decade, my impression is that there is paid-to-post.

I like helping people with their hubs. I've gotten to know the ins and outs and how it works. I know how to use the tools and other websites to drive your traffic. If you are new post hubs in here and I will get to each one of them to let you know what I think

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

As some of you may have noticed ads show up on articles, the answer section and the forums. Great, the more ads the more that we can possibly earn. But I am still having a problem with the hubber (profile) score. Since any links that appear on a hub are no follow if the profile score is below 85,...

A certain member has been annoying me recently and I'd like to stop seeing their posts. How do I block them? All I can see on their profile is the flagging option.

I know there's been alot of changes here lately, but I can usually justify them in terms of being good for HubPages. This one I'm not so sure about. There was a thread in which the OP made outrageous and unsupported and in fact outright false claims. Several people pointed out that she was...
