There has been billion dollar acquisitions by Facebook in recent days. Google is about to start the process. Do you see a possibility that Hubpages will be bought by Google?
hahaha--in short-- I don't see it happening-- but hey, if they do all us writers could start a class action suit to get our share of the billions Google will pay for Hubpages -- you know, like the bloggers at Huffington Post did when AOL bought it-- come to think about it they lost the suit so nevermind
On the other hand, if Mark can daydream about Matt Cutts in the sauna,.....tee hee ( waving at Mark)
I was having a sauna the other day when I bumped into Matt Cutts.
"Aren't you Matt Cutts?" I said.
"Might be" he replied, "have to be a bit careful now thanks to the Panda thing".
Of course I wasn't bothered about that, I was more worried that his towel had flopped open a bit and I tried to avert my gaze.
"So, er, what's up?" I said.
"Well, we're thinking of buying some of the content sites and closing them down" said Matt. He moved a little closer to me on the bench, towel still gaping alarmingly.
"In your case, we could make an exception".
... to be continued. Probably in a crap Hub that no one will read and gets no search traffic.
Sounds like a fantasy you hope will come to fruition, Mark!
Fair point. Ever since the Panda thing started and I discovered Matt I can't stop thinking about him. I'm thinking of taking my studies again, moving to the States, getting a job at Google, working my way up, using the company sauna and ...
...there I go again.
I like you. So I have decided to offer you the deal of the century. You may buy all of my truly awesome hubs for the grand total of only 100 shares of unrestricted Google stock. I recommend you snap this offer up before I come to my senses and change my mind.

Where are we on this?I see Google has added a new way to verify authors: http://www.google.com/support/webmaster … er=1408986That would seem to make things easier, though we would have to go back and edit hubs unless HP would provide a way to do this automatically if we wanted to (and...

People at one end say that good content is a must for a Hub or for any web article where Google adsense is the revenue source. I believe if the content is really good, the visitor will read through and reach the end of the article.But people at another end in Hubpages advice you not to place any...

I understand that traffic can fluctuate during different times of the year. Seen it happen myself -- traffic decline in summer and rise near holidays. However, I fear something is wrong like I have either been affected by a Google algorithm or something else. My traffic has been continuing to...
