I recently received an email (via HotMail) from HubPages about a new fan/follower (interesting format, and info - nice intro to your new fans/followers.

Does anyone know what's up with that? Can anyone tell me how to get rid of or avoid it?

Is Google now keeping most of the revenue from ads?Do you think the algo tweaks are really a smokescreen and that Google now keeps most of the revenue from ads? Could this be why content-rich, quality sites are still seeing huge losses in ad revenue?

Thank you for posting. As I know, advertizing websites is not in agreement with HubPages. HIV has been around for more than two decades, and that means it has been followed by much education....
