Okay, well, um, so...
Today I decided to follow Brie Hoffman's suggestion, and I googled my screenname + HubPages. A few hits looked uninteresting, but I did follow up on two, and I got sort of blown away.
Here's the quote from one:
"N*** on January 1st, 2011 12:36 pm --
Hi, t***b***w*****, wishing you the best at hubpages. read the income hubs of darkside, misha, mark knowles, sunforged, thisisoli, susana s, rebecca e, marissa wright , website examiner, aficionada, so many, etc. there's one more I like very much, can't quite remember hehehe"
Are you splutter - splutter - splutter - splutter-in' KIDDING me??
Income hub? when did I ever write an income hub? Unless maybe N*** was talking about the one-and-only-one I wrote about linking hubs together, which may (or may not) be good for generating income.
And, if N*** had any idea of what my income has been so far to date, s/he would not have been quite so generous in including me in that stellar list.
Stellar! Stellar!! How on earth???????
[Just hazarding a guess, but maybe N*** got my name confused with someone else's? Where was relache in that list? nelle hoxie? ryankett? WryLilt? PCunix? IzzyM? KristenGrace? Spacey Gracey? wilderness?]
At the very least, I have had my laughter therapy for the day.
Flattered beyond words.
Uh, thanks - truly, thanks-thanks-thanks! but...
I'm not worthy, I'm not WORTHY, I'M NOT WORTHY!!!!!
LoL congratulations - like all things, 1% truth and 99% assumption makes everything grow.
And I wouldn't call my own income big - February will be the first month I reached payout in an actual month!
But you are still months ahead of me in earnings! Unless I can count some earnings that have come about as a result of my participation in HubPages, rather than from the Hubs themselves.
EDIT: And actually, technically speaking, you would still be months ahead of me then, but by a smaller margin.
WOW... I am going to try this right now. I will let you know what happened
That is very cool-- I must give this a try ( although I have a feeling I will end up disappointed) off to google to see what happens :-)
Hahaha, totally flattered you would mention my name. Quite curious now after your reading your post here, though!
Oh, I definitely think you have the credentials for writing Hubs about generating income - definitely more than I have, whether you have actually written any or not. And I know that your page views put you way on up there. Your name belongs on the list far before mine ever would, although I certainly felt flattered to see it there.
I followed the steps to the letter and I was shocked to see my hubs all over google....
Ok tired and fed up of typing etc - I'm off to type me into google. I bet I'm a regular virus around the net
Just for starters, there will be a google entry for each and every one of the 4423 forum posts you have made (except maybe sandbox).
@Mrs. J.B. - Thanks for the report!
Let us know what you find. It's fun to do, but sort of shocking at the same time.

Since Google AdSense hasn't approved me, my hubs aren't earning anything from anywhere. I've been told that ads show up on my page but that they belong to hubpages and I won't get paid for those. I guess hubpages is earning money off my hubs but I am not. Is this the case? I have other hubs I would...

Hi, what was you maximum earning with HubPages Ad Program in a month (not google adsense)? Is it possible to make much money with this program? Thanks.

On a different account, somewhat "experimental" account, one of my Hubs is unfeatured. Generally my inclination was to unpublish it and move it or just delete it. But I kept it and put it in a Hub group. Meaning, if the Hubs before and after it get traffic, possibly the unfeatured one...

So hubbers help? I had four hubs that went from the pending state to having the featured status. Originally they were all viewed on the page where you can hop hubs.Now I dont no where they are? What does that mean? They all appear...

So I've deleted all of the idled hubs so far and am wondering when I will have none left. I'm not going to edit anymore until I see some sort of improvement in traffic. Too much trouble for no results at all. With all of the scrapers and with HP's brilliant program I'll soon have...

Hey folks. I'm a long time member here and an SEO guy by trade. I love this platform and want to support it. I've been digging into Panda data, and I have a few suggestions. Let's work together and 'right the ship!' 1) Start a brand new account today. Fresh content is what Hubpages needs. Google...
