I am unable to access hubpages.com from home or workplace. I don't know what has happened. I am currently writing this comment using a proxy server. It has been two days now and I am really fed of this. I don't know what to do. I have sent an email to HP regarding this.
Please let me know if anyone else is facing the same problem as I am.
Problem is with the ISP concerned. I have contacted the ISP and told them about the problem. They have checked it and corrected the problem. Now I can access the hubpages website.
Are you facing same problem? Why I am a mess? Please elaborate PS.
No I am in India and can always easily access Hubpages.
The reason I asked this is because not long after seeing Soni's post a facebook friend asked this very question when she could not access hubpages.com
Same here, Soni - haven't been able to access it from yesterday!
Yes the same has happened with me since yesterday. Do you live in New Delhi Shalini.
Is HP barring ips in India selectively following ryankett's advice (he seemed to be very upset about hubbers from non native-english speaking countries, particularly India, in his forum posts)?
While I don't recall Ryan specifically advising that, he has made a lot of suggestions, and while I don't speak on his behalf I'm pretty sure he'd say that HubPages haven't listened to any of them
Personally I think HP would do well to stop ALL new sign-ups, while they sort through the current content and apply their new quality criteria.
And if they ever did something as drastic as singled out and block entire countries, I'd certainly hope that they would still allow current members from those countries to continue using the site and benefiting from it, just as the site would have benefited from their articles up until that point of time.

That does not encourage true growth either and would still not be the best solution to any panda or misuse of this platform as rightly perceived.
You would hope so - but it has been done before. Helium blocked India and the Phillipines, and allowed only a very few to keep their membership going.
@soni2006, Network breakdown with a few Internet service providers and the virtual worlds here and there, I think it got to do with your local ISP. Just this morning Blogger went down, no access to login and dashboard but the are currently fixing it. Wait for some time...
Thank you so much friends for your help. I think waiting for sometime should be the way to go.
It's the ISP that's the culprit. I'm using another ISP right now and......no problems.
Soni - I'm in Pune but the common factor seems to be Airtel.
Okay friends, after a trouble for 2 to 3 days, I am finally able to access hubpages.com via Spectranet and I hope so Airtel will also be working fine. Thank you so much to HP and to all hubbers for their kindness and support.
I did that SunSeven - whether it helped or not I don't know but things are fine again and I can access HP.
I have had absolutely no problems .. I have been logging in for the last three days without issues.
I was also not able to access HP from workplace (Airtel network) since 2 days, but luckily it is working from home (Tata). I hope to get it working on Monday.
I guess this is because they're filtering sites based on malicious scripts. I found airtel/Vodafone filtering few sites. HP Ad program runs some annoying/malicious ads so it could be the reason behind this issue.
As for anyone suggesting blocking entire country IP, yeah that theory is good. Block it and US traffic will rise for sure.

I am screaming with frustration! Most of my hubs have been unfeatured due to lack of traffic. I write about gardening which no one wants to read about in the winter. Spring is coming so I want to get my hubs featured again, but every time I try to edit them, I either get an error...

For the past 3 days, I could not access Hubpages. (I am in India). My browser (Firefox) failed to locate HP and reported it could be a server problem. I tried Chrome browser too to no avail. Was there a technical glitch? After 3 days, I could reach HP today.

Jeez, I check my stats this morning and it's a disaster. I run to Quantcast and discover it's all of HubPages and not just me. What the heck is going on? I even rushed to a calendar website to see if there was something special about May 1; there wasn't. I checked the news for anything that could...

Yesterday evening, when we walked outside to the car, I could smell a skunk. In my front yard! I've never been that close to one before, as far as I know, other than roadkill. A few hours later the smell had dissipated. What's the oddest thing that has happened to you recently?
