Remove Actress Hubs

    I have seen that hubpages has several actress hubs which are nothing but a collection of sleazy pics. I don't think these are of any utility to hubpages. I have flagged a few but there are thousands of them still. I believe these should be removed immediately.

        Closer to three years too late....

        No matter how vehemently the community has complained about these Hubs, admin seems most unwilling to remove this style of content.

          But why? Do they bring in lots of $$ for HP?

      Well, I certainly hope you're talking, specifically about certain hubs.

      I personally have many Celebrity hubs, which might qualify "Actress" Hubs, however, my hubs have a lot more content on them than just pictures.

      I would suggest instituting a words count minimum for those specific type of hubs. Most of mine are at least 400 words or more. wink

        Hi Ray,
        Your Hubs are good and they don't qualify for the sleazy stuff category. Your hubs deserve top stay at hubpages.

            You might have a buttload of copyright violations though...

            I don't think all of Hubpages problems can be fixed retroactively. Four years of Indian aunties, 1 paragraph hubs, wholesale copyright violation of photos, etc... can't really be fixed without massive manpower. Either Hubpages will be able to weather the algorithm changes or it won't. It is really kinda late to do anything about it.

      I agree completely sid_candid ,nothing but garbage with no value to a site that's touted as a community of writers.

    I flagged 3 by the same person, they were filled with sleasy, x-rated comments.

    Would it not be easier for the moderators to reject them right at the  just published stage? you know a wild horse is easier to control before he's left the stable.
    Logical even.

    I don't think they would do it from jump. I saw a few of Bollywood Actress' which had risque photos, soft porn type pics and there were a couple of other hubs with regular girls who were not celebrities and the hubber put something like, "Isn't my aunt a hottie! See more picks below." One was of the sister, another of the cousin. I don't know if they were trying to advertise mail order brides or what! That was a definite flag.

    Cags I have seen your hubs and they are legit. They have beautiful photos and are informative so there should not be any comparison at all when it comes to your hubs.

    I have done hubs with lots of photos about American Idol but I add alot of info as well.

    I guess none of you were here for the oversaturation of Indian Aunties back in the day.

    I love the idea of a minimum word count -- for ALL hubs.
    For goodness sake. This is a WRITERS' SITE. We are supposed to be WRITING here.
    If you can't pull together at least 300 words (arbitrarily chosen #) it's not a hub. It's spam.

    For the record: I have nothing against beautiful actresses or hot Indian aunties. There's a time and place for those. HP ain't it.

        LOL, I thought you were writing in German, so I hit the translate button. It failed to translate, but then a second later it says:

        Did you mean to say "MM you know writing is my life!" ?

        I haven't felt this stupid for a long time.

    I am in favor of a minimum word count, but I think they need to put all of the poetry hubs elsewhere.  I like the idea of the poetry outlet, but I am not sure that those monetize well and be warrant a segregation to a more poet-friendly area.

    1. Cagsil profile image60
      Cagsilposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Hey Mutiny, I have a few hubs that are poetry that make clicks and have word counts over 500 words. tongue

      Nice to see you again. smile

      C'mon now...leave the poetry be.  As you said, poetry doesn't earn much, which means it's not getting picked up much in the search engines, either.  In other words, poetry isn't even close to the problem here on HP.

    and while we are at it, I recommend removing FOREX hubs and the big influx of insurance hubs.  Most of them appear to be shallow and seem to serve the purpose of giving someone's blog a backlink.

    I am sure there are exceptions...but good grief already!

    Celebrities are a legitimate category to write about, and there are plenty of people out there interested in celebrities.  They tend to earn lesss than others per thousand visitors, but they also tend to get more traffic.

    All low quality hubs should probably be removed from Hubpages, there is no reason to limit this to celebrities.
