The above url was discovered by a fellow hubber. Upon following the link we discovered that our hubs were posted there. All links are HP hub links.
We would like to know if HubPages owns 'The Best Hubpages' website.
This has been discussed on the forum several times...nothing to worry about
I think they will be very thankful to you for giving a working backlink.
BTW, are you promoting them?
I am not promoting them, I was kinda surprised and posted the link wihtout thinking.
I removed the link.
Thanks for pointing it out.
Ive accidently typed in that website ,there are others with the word 'Hub'in them, interesting ,but I doubt if any are linked.
Which reminds me ,I wouldnt mind a change of name for this site....used to work in a cafe called 'The Hub' shopped in a mall called 'The Hub'..
Im so over the word Hub
Whois says they have been around over 3 years. Other info is hidden, which I don't think HP would do.
Here's an interesting forum link: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/6811
Looks to me like this site actually may help us in our rankings. More power to them!
It is a link. You can't stop any website from adding a link to your article.
Oh, yes I can- the article is mine and if I don't want it advertised with smut -it won't be !
Well, I found one of my hubs on there. I was wondering why it had such a high score with much fewer views than the other high scoring ones.
Seems no one here understands how the internet works.
BACKLINKS are any links pointing to your article/site/page. There is nothing illegal about linking to a site - if there was I'm sure a lot of you wouldn't be linking to sites in your own hubs without permission - or did you conveniently forget that you often use links to other sites?
Links to your work that YOU don't create yourself are called ORGANIC BACKLINKS. Most small sites dream of getting dozens of organic backlinks without having to work for them - the more you have the more traffic you get, both directly and from search engines.
There is no such thing as a bad backlink (anyone who says so is incorrect - otherwise SEO experts would simply spam their competitors with 'bad backlinks' to get them taken out of search engines). The only thing possible is a low quality backlink - one that isn't worth much/anything to the search engines or brings you little traffic.
The MORE backlinks you have, the higher you can rank in search engines. Simple as that.
For more info on backlinks and why they are good for you check out What is a backlink?
I don't mind backlinks, but the initial reaction was....Whoa, Someone has a website totally dedicated to Hubpages best articles!
At first seeing you best articles there is kind of a shock but it wares off.
After talking to a few people in the forums, I realize its not anything to worry about. It actually may help bring in organic traffic. The person who build that site really loves Hubpages.
I kinda feel good about having another link out there now, so I am all for it. It's not like they are copying my content or anything.
I politely disagree with most of you. To me - for that website to be advertising my hubs is equal to a prostitute parading up and down the street with a sign advertising my articles!
I don't like it.
Back links are great but I think you should check to see if you're really getting all the hits you should be getting from that site.
And how many hits "should" you be getting from the site?
It's like someone putting up a free advertisement for your shop but you telling them "please take it down because it's only sending me one customer a month instead of 10."
In that case, I suggest you write to the site and ask them to remove your Hubs.
As for the number of actual hits - that's irrelevant.
Links are good for two reasons. One is that real people follow them, but that's actually less important. The main reason is that when Google assesses the value of your Hub, it looks at how many other people have linked TO it (backlinks). Google sees backlinks as votes of confidence. The more backlinks you have, the higher Google will rank your Hub.
So others are right to say the link on that website is valuable to you. But you have every right not to accept it, if you don't want it.
I had a visit on my stats from besthubpages.com and I thought it was a hubber and clicked. I thought it was a hubber named best. lol So I guess I need to read through this thread.
I visited the site and all it had there were HubPages links and ads. I really believe that a member of this site has created that site. I also think it has a good Google ranking. I don't mind my hubs there so long as they have not plagiarized my content. It's a link that may be helping us.
It looks like no one is understanding what I'm trying to say. I simply don't like any of our hubs being used as a coverup or lure to get people to look at their porn!
I understand what you are saying, I just don't care. I went to the site, saw not one stitch of porn and am glad for the backlink(s). Stop saying "our hubs" because the links to MY hubs are just fine. This crusade is all yours... Good luck with that.
I certainly hope you never have any of your hubs go viral. You might be shocked where they turn up.
What porn? Did you actually find some or are just imagining that anything on the web must be a coverup for a porn site?
I actually just combed the site and saw ads for insurance companies and that such, which would make sense since I was looking up insurance quotes earlier. Other than that, most of the stuff seemed pretty tame. There was one of those trick picture things that said "is it a lamp or a women" that was the only thing even slightly racy... and it was a perception thing so if she saw porn then that says something about her doesn't it
Could be. We all know that everything about a woman is pornographic, after all!
Don't some adverts change based on what you've been looking at previously?
I know right... The other day I showed my ankles. My husband became so randy that we scooted the twin beds together (after he was done beating me for being a temptress)
It doesn't have the whole article on the site, just a tiny selection from the article. It's great for backlinks. This site is actually a good thing... free backlink and it doesn't hurt us since it's just a teeny, tiny selection from each hub.
Yay free backlinks!

This is how I understand backlinks. Linking to a webpage that links back to you is more valuable to SEO than not having it link back to you. The more removed this website is from your own the better. ...
