Anybody seen this website that searches hubs unofficially?

    I noticed one or two sites like this that promote searching for our hubs..how it happened is I linked my Twitter with my phone and it came up mentioning that I'd been mentioned in a tweet..do you think someone is earning by tweeting our hubs?

      Sounds like one great big back link for Hub Pages. I just visited it - simple concept, easy to use.

      Thanks Paradigm, I hope to reach at least 270 hubs by the time I get home in 10 days..as you can see from my recent hub I have done quite a bit of sightseeing!

    That is Hub Search.Net. It tweets many links directly to our hubs.   
    There is one tweeting/retweeting hubs with a tracker that doesn't work. The person has an account and thread here requesting Twitter URL's.


    That is really quite a site he has formed, but links do direct to our hubs.

        That's the whole point of trackers though. I think whoever came up with that is pretty darn smart.

        How so?

          But its just a custom search, no way to stick trackers in through google

          I have the same custom search in place in the 60dc/online writers toolbar. It blows away the functionality of the in site HP search.

            sunforged, is this good or bad for us.  I don't understand the concept.  If they tweet our hubs, don't we get traffic from it?  If that is so, that's good, isn't it?

              promotion is good .


              I dont know anything about whether they tweet our hubs, but thats ok if they do and its ok if they do using a tracker.

              I was pointing out that the search page doesnt insert trackers in, although it would be fine if it did.

              I cant imagine it gets much use or sends much traffic, but its cool if it does.

              It all adds up.

                In a sense who ever started the site is right. His idea of searching hub pages first is a great idea.

                The answers to many questions are at our fingertips by many writers here covering about every subject under the sky, and a few who go beyond it. I bookmarked it and plan on using it.

                I have a blog going right now that I have no intention of putting my url on until certain things happen, so am using other hubbers urls probably for about a month. In my case to prove I am able to do what I promise I have to be paid for my efforts first.

                With this search engine I should be able to find the hubs I am looking for without hours of searching. In this sense his program is helping get trackable people to hubpages.

        no, he is not the one using a tracker. The account seems legit to me. If you're on Twitter, he has probably tweeted your hub. I had his name wrong up there.. it is HubSearchDotNet.
         
        Another Twitter account HubPagesHottest, I believe, (something like that) uses a tracker that doesn't work. I've sent a few messages, but to no avail. Sometimes hubbers insert trackers improperly.

        Yes - I just went to take a look. I'm not sure I understand the point of it. Do you think it'll do us any good?
