I was strolling through google analytics as a change from the ironing and I noticed one of the site sources was "awesome hubpages .com". I know HP is awesome but this is new to me. Have I missed a change or is it something that Paul is doing to revive the site?
Ah its the sub domain thingummy.
Therefore when we all have subdomains you will be able to see in google analytics which hubbers have read your hubs?
So far, I've found only about a dozen of the new subdomains. Some are users screennames but a few aren't.
Harharharharhar. I see you found my temporary subdomain.
When the staff was testing them out, some of us went with usernames, some of us (coughcoughcough me) went with words. Since clearly a synonym for Simone Smith is "awesome" I decided to have a little fun.
But it is going to be switched my username soon- that was just a test, and the subdomain shift will be username-centric. Hope that clears things up!
Ah, well as long as you enjoyed the hub I don't mind! I was just rather thrown, as if someone had changed the name without me knowing!
Is there going to be an option to change usernames? I kinda like the idea of having a 'cool' domain name and it seems a little unfair that new users will be able to use 'cool' subdomains and us more established users are going to be stuck with ultra-exciting sub-domains like: simeyc.hubpages.com
Some of the possibilities are frightening, while others make sense.
You had great advice at least a year ago from Hubbers who suggested organizig HP into subdomains that capture the content categories of the site.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but something like brilliant.hubpages.com could be mine? Or maybe glam or LOL or, well, the possibilities are endless

The whole purpose of sub-domains, from what I understand, is to give good hubbers the chance to rise up to the search engines while hubbers who don't produce quality content to umm not.Before the whole subdomain thing, we were urged to flag spam (and otherwise "bad") content so it...

In his hub 'What We Don't Know About Google Panda?', Paul Edmondson points out that Google seems to expect sites to leap high above any bar that might reasonably be set for quality purposes.Paul seems less than happy with Google's attitude. He seems to think that if a page can somehow limp over...

Calling all SEO experts on Hubpages -What do you think about using numbers in domain names - does it have any effect on SEO? Does this look spammy, or more importantly, SEs will consider them spammy?For example, which do you think will be better -99keyword.comkeyword-365.comAll this because...

I know that many people don't like HP cracking down, but I personally am hoping that HubPages will continue to find new ways in 2012 to encourage the good writers on here and discourage the spammers and spinners - I really do think that it helps the site's reputation overall with Google and the...
