Anyone better than Len7288 ( http://len7288.hubpages.com/ ) in terms of stats? 1430 followers, 1325 hubs, and this whopper : being read over 10 million times, yes not my typo error, 10 million times! She is fantastic!
In fact I came into Hubpages through Len7288 on Google Search. How did she do it? I did ask her but I think she was too busy to answer me.
Well as I see from a quick note is that she simply states major facts about given subject with very clear grammar but keeping her hub short. I bet these herb hubs show up high on most searches. No personal view just facts wherever she gets them. Could be from a book, lol. Smart girl
You would be surprised how long hubbers have remained with spun content. There are very clever spinners. I remember last year another one was discovered with just about the same stats. It was all spun content.
Oh so if that's the case I'm glad HP is cracking down on the spinners. Next should be the personal hubs that are entirely advertisements (people with just a single hub and use HP just for a minute in their life)
Yea, I don't think so. I do my due diligence before I link to anyone's content by doing a search for duplication. Len's hubs were original, at least the ones I linked to. This is just going to be one of those mysteries full of conjecture so off to fix I go....
I don't think so. "Permanently banned" sounds like HP was sure. When I first visited your thread, her pic came up, but said she had been permanently banned. Now nothing comes up in the search for hubber len7288,
Sure. It could also just be a terrible mistake on the part of a staffer.
What IS gratifying is that HP is taking action on these kinds of problems. I think that's good even when someone does get undeservedly caught up in the web - I'm assuming that errors will be straightened out and any accidental or incorrect ban will be lifted.
More important is that real spammers and copiers are being dealt with.
It would be highly ironic if the reason staff noticed a violator was because of a post like this!
Yes, we don't know and likely will not know the details. I'm sure we all realize things are not always as they appear. If it was a mistake, I'm sure things could be worked out. Sometimes hubbers aren't willing to fix their mistakes or it's too overwhelming of a process. And some simply get caught for violating TOU. We don't know.
If someone's Hubs are merely unpublished and they have the opportunity to edit them and get them republished, you do not see a message on the profile page saying that user is banned. When you see that phrase, that means it's a permanent ban, the kind where you don't get a chance to come back and where the making of new accounts will get those automatically banned as well.
Her posts are still on here - I know this as I wanted to see if I could recall who she was,I got same on her profile as everyone else.
She was here for 5 years and the last forum post she made was to offer support to the team in the 'Bring back Google Love' forum posting, Jason thanked her for her support.
If you want to see the Google Love post from her or her other posts on the list - I typed her profile name into the search here and then clicked forums tab. BTW This does confirm what I thought when I read TOS recently even if your hubs go your posts in the forums here, remain.
I am wondering if when all the alterations to duplicate content,links, etc. came in with so many hubs on one account how would you ever make the adjustments required, especially if there was a time scale to achieve it in. But then I would guess you could just unpublish them and work through them as and when.
It makes you feel a bit vulnerable putting in the work when you read about people with so many pages going.
I wonder sometimes if some people think my articles are spun, just because I have so many. I've never used an article spinner - ever. All my hubs are original content. No one has ever accused me - just wanted to clear that point up. lol
Hmmm...this is really such a pity! I read one of Len's health hubs when I was new here and I thought it was very well written? In fact, just a couple of minutes ago, I searched a topic on Google and a link to her hub was on the 2nd page. When I clicked on the link, it said the hub was no longer published. Then I come on here and I find all this. I'm itching to find out why exactly she was banned! I can't take it any more - why was she banned? Whyyyy?!
I received a message from Len. She didn't say why she was banned and I didn't ask, it's her business. In her message, she thanked me for following her here on HP and invited me to visit her new website where she has moved all of her articles. If you want to take a look, it's at len7288 dot com. I wish I would have gotten this sooner, I would have changed all the links I had to her HP articles to their new location. Oh well, I 'cleaned house' and what's done is done.
Len said that it was something to do with resubmissions of a hub considered substandard. However Hp was not satisfied over several resubmissions, and the heat got on the way; and Len was banned.
I have same experience with Hp over so-called violations which Hp did not specify. They just stated "violations" of "over-promotion". I had to guess and figure out the exact violations, and luckily for me when I re-submitted my hub, it was acepted. I think Hp should help us to correct the violations by pointing out the speicific violations so that we could correct them to Hp's requirements.
Well, maybe the system is in auto mode when calling up violations, and that Admin also will not know the specific violations.
We just need to be very careful, and not let frustration overwhelms us that we might offend Hp in our subsequent correspondence.
I checked the link to Len's new site, it should be obvious to all native English speakers why she got banned. Every article of hers has multiple grammar and verb conjugation issues. "This plant grow..." "The plants grows..." And the mistakes are prevalent enough not to be typos.
HubPages is not a learning site for people who speak English as a second language. If people want to help her on their own time, great, but HP is a business first and foremost, and it's their call to make these decisions. Google does not look favorably on content written in broken English, and unless you've been living under a rock, you know that HP staff are obsessed with staying in Google's good graces.
Hi Hubbers,I recently got a hubber following me, so I followed them back. The hubber also published an article just a while ago, when I went to check it out. I saw that the hubber is banned from HubPages . How is that...
I have been here since January, 2012 and this is only the second time I hit the hundred mark. The first time it came and went quickly, but this time it has stuck...at least for today! I have been working...
This hubber has 10 million views and just 15 hubs. He or she doesn't even bother explainining who /he she/ is on profile page. Writes about stuff like iphones. Are we all missing a trick. Do you think this person could...
The secret is out! One of our much-loved writers has achieved 1 Million views without celebrating it so I wanted to say congratulations to FlourishAnyway. What an amazing result in such a short space of...
