Oh please dear god of hubbing

Updated on December 14, 2012

To hub or not to hub

With all that is happening in hubpages at the moment, I decide to pen another one of my attempts at poetry.

I should actual call it song lyrics, as I know a tune that it fits too, but not the name of the tune.




Oh please dear god of hubbing

I have often thought and wondered, what the outcome might have been.

If I'd joined another website, to pursue my writers dream.

My writing is a hobby, part of my therapy.

I think I'll find another way to keep my sanity.

They cry out in the forums, oh should we hub or not.

We have to find the secret, to please that google bot.

My clicks are down, my views are down, I'm losing out on sales.

We need to find an answer, your hear those hubbers wails.

We'll cull out all the spammers and ones who try to game.

For years now on the Internet they've all been doing the same.

Should we cut our backlinks, or is it rss feeds?

Oh Please dear god of hubbing, tells us what it needs.


We'll hop, we'll flag, we'll castigate, just tell us what to do.

Oh please dear god of hubbing we havn't got a clue.

I'm glad I do it just for fun, not monetary gain.

Oh please dear god of hubbing, when will it be the same again?

      I've been skating along here on HP with virtually no money to speak of, and my page views tend to hover around 15 per day. I've not learned 'the secret' yet and probably never will!

      I still love it and will continue to write and read anyway!

      Later, friend.
