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...

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...

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....

I chose to not have my stuff pinned on Pinterest, so I do not know the answer to my question. I am just curious. Do you feel that Pinterest, with recipes, images, and other pins, diverts traffic from your hubs?...

My HP earnings have bombed thanks to the Penguin, should I jump ship?Does anyone think it would be better to go with Google Adsense rather than the HubPages payment programme?

Almost a year back I tried to write 30 hubs in 30 days. I thought, writing 30 hubs in 30 days would not be a difficult proposition. But I failed to complete the challenge. Even now, I do not have 30 hubs total. I shall...
