Hey all - some good news at last. Despite losing 80% of my income and 75% of my US based traffic to my most profitable hubs - traffic to my religious nonsense has doubled!!
It's a miracle!
You have got to laugh - right?
So we should talk about God and Google in our Hubs now?
Are we supposed to put something on the sacrificial alter?
Never mind that. Google is taking it out in "tithes" since our incomes have plummeted.
Just keep your fingers crossed that first born anythings aren't required in addition.
Exactly! Jesus is a heroic man of action, a healer and a miracle worker. You only kept on mentioning his name and now everything is double double for you.
Hallelujah - You've cracked it. Now Hubpages can rise again.
I am off to rename some Hubs:
Moses and the Machine Screws
Why Jesus Loves Discount Queen Sized Beds
Buddha and the Ouzo Factory
Panda slap - pfft.
Ha! I'll follow suit with some of mine:
Nutella in Nazarene
Prayers and Pasta: 10 Ways to Keep Your Meals Holy
now watch a new crop of religious hubs being born!
I would certainly laugh at it. But, I do hope you get your income back.
the irony of it all....
Maybe SOMEONE is trying to tell you something Mark!!
Glad you still have your sense of humor...that's quite a hit to your income. Hopefully this turns around for us.
I've been saying for months that google is god.
Just as fickle and bitchy as any other I can think of.
Glad your religious traffic has shot up, Mark! That's got to have a HUGE impression on lot of people around here!!
Hate is very marketable. Look at Paris Hilton and Trump's comb-over.
I can see a Christian paparazzi tormenting you now. Can't wait to see the photos.
Baby Jesus loves you
Making any money with your religious hubs?
I dont think I could write a religious hub. I do not like religion being broadcasted. I believe in to each there own but dont push your beliefs on me.....

Jesus Saves You Money On Your Car Insurance
How to make money online sharing god's word.
Well that is why religion was invented ya know
God is very marketable
Why do you think that Jesus lashed out at the money lenders in the temple - just didn't like the competition!
Meerkats couldn't even hope to compete!
Oh I don't know, those meerkats are cute! Cute sells, simples
Yes those Meerkats even had their own book in the top 10 bestseller list over Christmas - not sure what that says about us Brits!
But you know Jesus does kind of dominate Christmas (in theory!!)

Ohhh you and me mate, we gotta share this one! Why not combine the two? Cute Meerkats and the promise of eternal salvation from a threat that cannot be proved to actually exist. It should make a mint!
Why Jesus and his Meerkats think you should buy a Juicer this summer!

I think that the Panda slap has finally started to affect my mind!!!!!!
At least you haven't lost your sense of humour LOL

My mind has been affected by lots of stuff pre-panda, sadly I cannot blame my lost mind on that panda
Yeah but try going to the doc and saying that you were down because you were slapped by a panda?
I suspect he would write something or another in his little note pad and proceed to show me a nice warm padded room and a lovely new jacket for me to wear
Sounds quite cosy, especially if they let you have a TV? Somewhere where the Panda can't find you?
Oh they wont let us have TV's, they have sharp corners
Those padded rooms do not usually allow anything pointy or sharp apart of my wit of course
So a gin and tonic would be out of the question then? But still sounds quite peaceful.....................
No to the gin and tonic but yes to adivan! Thats one of those nice addictive sleeping pills
What does he charge for an 18year old driving a 5 series BMW? The quote I got was from the "other" place I think!
Praise be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lolololol!
Miracles never cease - an Internet advertising firm - Google and God.
You are all welcome to a G & T at my place - I have been to check my stuff for the first time for a while - and find that all my figures are UP - on my poetry hubs, and they have been steadily climbing since the Panda slap, maybe my choice of avatar worked as a ploy !!!!
Sorry that the "google god" is taking so much of your traffic and income. With all the new changes I have decided that hub pages won't be anything but a hobby.
Last time I checked my nick pulled one article I had written and its been my nick by which anyone found me. A while back, before this change there were over 60 results for it.
I have heard and seen that you have some of the hottest topics concerning our economy and if those aren't being read than what hope does anyone else have.
The weird thing it all this is my traffic has been steadily growing, with no sales, but my back office says I am making a little money. Nothing to write home about though.
Like the ones below I am going to change my profile picture too. This is for what they are doing to you Mark and I am guessing quite a few of the others here.
Good luck Mark, and everyone.

I don't have big hub numbers but my Google traffic has gone from 40 - 60 views per day to nil and hubs that were in the top ten search results have suddenly disappeared.This is true of hubs I've had for a couple of months, and hubs I wrote within the last week.I've seen numerous comments about...

Just achieved a tiny milestone of 200+ a day and $1+ a day after 3 months and 45 hubs. Traffic is increasing gradually and all of my hubs getting good traffic from Google search. 60% percent of traffic is from Google, what I wanted and tried for. Hope will have my 1st payout this month.Looking...

Hi guysI Recently had a big jump in traffic due to a couple of my hubs making it to the front page of Google. While I am obviously thrilled, I wanted to try and dissect why? Is it simply a matter of time before Google decides if it likes you or not? If so should I expect to wait around a month...

Wondering where we stand with regard to a new accolade for having more than 5 EC hubs or even a way for people to see this special distinction publicly on our hubs. Right now, we are the only ones who can see it - on our account statistics. I'm tempted to opt out at this point. Is there anyone else...

Due to positive feedback regarding the HubPages ad program and myself being relatively new here (around 3 weeks), I decided to have the HP ads enabled from my very first hub. The cents have been steadily accumulating since the first few days, but I'm beginning to question if I've made a poor...

Regarding google adsenseI have written 16 featured HUBs. I applied for google adsense but was declined. How can I fix this? How do I get google adsense to let me have ads on my hubs? Thanks.Also, how long do featured hubs stay featured?
