    Qassia is now requiring all websites to be authenticated by pasting a code into the page.  I've done that no problem on my blogs, but is there any way I can do it with HubPages?  I've tried pasting the code into my profile but it doesn't seem to work. 

    What do people think of Qassia anyway?  I don't seem to be getting any traffic from it.

    Me neither. For an article directory with a twist they seem to make things too complicated. I don't think I am going to bother with sites authentication... at least till they prove they are worth it smile

    I sent Qassia an email earlier asking them how to go about this on hubpages. If I get a response, I'll post it here.

    I agree in principle with Misha; I'm not going to expend a lot of energy into this, but if there's a way to do it, I'll give it a whirl.

    Qassia not only provided me with no traffic, but I noticed many articles there are posted by people who plagiarize other sites, which may be resulting in search engines ignoring qassia. Just curious if that is the case?  One article I saw on there was directions on how to shampoo your carpet, which read very oddly because it was translated using google tools or something of that sort.  That piece was very funny, but I have not had the desire to go to qassia since I saw all the plagiarism there.

    You can delete their code after you authenticate, so worst case, paste it into a text capsule, authenticate, and then delete it.

    The authentication process will weed out all the affiliate marketers who don't have control of the code on the page they are linking to, which means the site should improve dramatically in quality after this process.

    I have never seen a Qassia article appear in organic search results, but at least some of the pages are indexed, which means the links will count.

    Traffic has been zero so far in my experience.

    I just did as Jenny suggested. Worked like a charm, and it didn't take long.

    Qassia is poop.

    No traffic, no backlinks, no rewards.  Just hits and uniques for them. -shrug-

    You can post your hubs there and create backlines and hope for traffic. but as mentioned Quassia is poop. I had only 7 visits so far since i joined 2 months ago. Complete waste of time. I signed up and posted a profile on Flickr 5 days complete with my  hub links and so far i had 3 sign ups and 750 visits and its a photosharing site!!!.

    Qassia was never for traffic - only for backlinks - and I am happy that I am getting anchored links which appear to be counted - pain having to do the authentication though

    Is flickr do follow?

    It is a pain to authenticate websites on there. For us, we'd have to pay the programmers to put code in there, authenticate then pay to have it deleted again...unless we just left it hidden on the page.

    Regardless, I understand the motive behind it, but it seems a bit over the top.

    And I suspect those of you saying you don't get traffic from Qassia aren't getting traffic because it's in beta still. I'm not sure if that will change when they officially, publicly launch, so we'll have to wait and see.

    I was kicking around the idea of asking if it's validation enough to send them an email from a company email address...if I get an answer I'll be sure to post it.

    For what it's worth, here's their mission:

    The objective of this site is to allow website owners and webmasters to efficiently promote their web sites. Those promoting their websites on Qassia are rewarded with traffic and exposure for their websites in our web directory. The ultimate goal of this site is to obviate the need for link exchanges or submissions to web directories during the SEO (search engine optimization) process, and to instead focus website promotion activity on the development of original content.

    Note how they specifically say that traffic should flow as a result of one's work there...

    Should be interesting to see if that's the case when they come out of beta.

    Nick,

    I have a question regarding site authentication! I apologize for asking because I'm sure the Qassia staff is inundated with questions right now, but hopefully I won't take too much time!

    I am wondering if it's possible to authenticate website ownership a different way than the two listed on Qassia. You see, for several of the websites I'm promoting I pay a programmer to design them. It is quite a bit of hassle (time and money-wise) to authenticate using your two methods as I would have to pay a programmer to do either option.

    Is it possible for me to authenticate by emailing you using a company owned email address? In other words, since this is from an email address "@designcrafters.com" then could it serve to authenticate www.designcrafters.com?

    Thank you in advance for your time and for all you do for Qassia!

    Pete
