Anyone type in the word hupages in google and look at the results today?
Think thats good check page 2
Update: No harm intended for legitimate articles or websites ranking for the keyword hubpages.
hopefully you see some results for the keyword hubpages lol
I saw quite a few, and I scanned at least 7 pages deep. But, not anyone's profile page. I saw HP's blog and Homepage, then a bunch of related articles to Hubpages.
what about hubpages.in on page 2.. I didn't realize HP had sites elsewhere around the world. Where people can earn 75%
I think that might be what the OP was referring to. A second rate blog set up by an Indian hubber.
True! Check out the prices for the Squiddo/Hub articles for sale on the second page.
Do you think besthubpages.com has any duplicate content? or is that just some sort of RSS feed I think not but I'm not sure/ page 6
Took me a while to find it...I read the squidoo article by whitney first, then found what you were talking about on page 3!
I don't especially like this because it takes away the idea of this being a mere writer's platform, but then again so long as the hubs are well written and the cheapest quote is for a minimum of 500 words which means it should be better quality than most of the muck that is getting published these days, there shouldn't be a problem.
I would rather see paid for and professional looking hubs here than some of the ones we have, to be honest.
Not really, it just means that there aren't that many hubs specifically focusing on that keyword.
Search google for http://www.hubpages.com and you get some pretty good results.
With deals like the below running out there, don't expect anyone to start respecting HubPages again anytime soon. I doubt this is making Google feel good about this site.

'SEO experts' have always preyed on the suckers.
Read this page and you will see that Glenn Stok reckoned someone was using a bot to follow folk.
In view of the link you have just shown I think HP staff should be informed if they haven't been already.
I don't know enough about this kind of software to know how to deal with it.
Wow! That will definitely not give a good reputation for hubpages....These corrupt people are ruining legit people!!!
Interesting site Relache. It makes me think that traffic should no longer be a determining factor in individual hub scores.
My intentions of this thread were not to discredit those legitimate websites or articles that are ranking good for the keyword "hubpages" I was amazed at the ones that seem rather shady that could also be harmful to the community here.
I think HP got a bad beat but its fixable with time. Its gonna take some work.
On Bing and Blekko, HubPages.com is still the first result on a search for HubPages.
On Google...not so much...

Hello all, I will be conducting an experiment of trying to get one of my hubs to the first page of a rather competitive keyword. All updates will be on here.The keyword is "Best Facebook Games"Now, I am giving myself 30 days to do this. Starting today June 24, 2013. Experiment ends July...

I have read many forums over the last couple of months on how traffic to HubPages has dropped considerably since July. After much investigation I believe to have figured out what has caused this drop (and I don't think it was the algorithm change).I keep statistics on my keyword performance for...

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more like 30. The articles I worked long and hard to produce, sit there doing nothing...
