I am getting very low traffic and almost no adsence, horrable...This is the worst its been since I first started here....
Yep, many are suffering for the actions of a few, K! I learned the hard way about content farms. They are businesses which accept almost any content at first to build up their archives of web pages for the search engines to find.
So along with some well written researched articles there are also many more spammy hubs and duplicate content which also brings in money to the site. As usual, greed overcomes practicality and the results are what we are seeing now on HP and many other content sites.
But this latest fiasco has taught many of us a valuable lesson. Don't write for any site which allows obviously inferior content and start writing for your own site. It takes a certain type of person to be able to ignore those who trust them with their work.
Unfortunately, there seems to be no lack of these types in the world of content writers. I do not envy them in the least.
I found these guys in my travels and I believe this and the fact that they remain on this site, not only endorses what you are saying but also the OP.
I am sure that this is a Purrrrfect example of how to best insult the intelligence of legitimate site writers. Who is Earning of this Trash?
- Interestingly Every One of these 'articles' contain 100's of intentionally embedded Links!
Many of them also are Full of Links similar to those that were found on the Recently Stolen Content from HP.
- Such 'Comment' Linking is one of the primary reasons why many of the Auntie hubs are published here!
They act as solid link platforms and secretly coded (via personal contact details) mail boxes for large groups of commercial raiders!
Seems these sort of electronic highways are great free communication systems, as they remain active and online 24/7.
- Under the Radar!
- Think I am talking Rubbish? You follow the bouncy balls and see what you find!
- But You MUST Look Beyond What You Consider to be the Obvious!
- It is quite a simple road to follow
- Well - It is at least as simple to follow as it is to answer the question:
- WHY ARE THEY HERE?
Hope you don't mind me rubbing up against your letterbox - I had to fan you because I quite like the leftovers I found since I last called!
Chicken tonight maybe?

I've been approached by a number of specialized sites regarding a number of my articles on Guitar product reviews. Obviously I was quite proud and humbled to be even considered to write content for these sites, some of which are huge, but all I'm getting in return is a back-link to my hubpages...

I posted this hub about MOPS a few days ago: http://thatmommyblogger.hubpages.com/hu … S-Meeting. It took me hours to write, and I wrote it about a very personal topic. There is no chance that I plagiarized it, and I did not post it on any other site.I'm getting a duplicate...

Hello, here's something I've been wondering about for a while.I have a few articles on another site, which has recently announced that it's no longer going to pay international contributors. So I'm thinking it would be a good idea to move a couple of them over to HubPages (where we're...

I don't think I'm alone in thinking that the main thing that has dragged hubpages down in this latest algo change is the amount of crappy content posted on here over the years. I understand the reasoning behind the latest changes regarding ad placement and reduction of amazon and ebay links and I...

Hi everyone,I know there have been a lot of concerns about our hub content being stolen. It has been difficult for all of us to keep an eye on our hubs - plagurising is rife! However, I wanted to share a freebie with everyone (I like free!) that will search the Internet for duplicate...

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including the authors' names and copyright notes, ironically). I see lots of names of...
