Oops, Paul Edmondson Forgot to Opt-Out of the NEW Writers Contract

It's getting harder to stomach all the excuses that HubPages is coming up with for abusing authors. Yes, abusing is the right word. I feel it's high time Hubbers took a look at what has transpired over the last few months to see how their rights have been infringed. Any opt-out policies that are currently in place need to be examined carefully. Often, these types of clauses are unenforceable and even illegal.

HubPages is Failing Writers: What You Need to Know

I finally understand the HubPages business model. Only the top content is meant to benefit HubPages, not the writer. But hey, after five Editor's Choice awards you'll get a fancy accolade on your profile. I've been wondering why Paul Edmondson isn't concerned about all the negative SEO attacks on authors (especially those who came from Squidoo). I guess subdomains and author identities are a dime a dozen to him.

Theories Why HubPages Unfeatured Former Squidoo Articles

HubPages unmercifully decided to unfeature hundreds of former Squidoo Lenses-turned-Hubs on or around December 1st, 2014. While former Squidoo writers are wondering what happened, I drew on my social psychology classes and research into workplace bullying to provide you with some theories. Bottom line: we need to hold HupPages and Squidoo execs to their terms of service and both federal and state laws.

Why on Earth Is Any Squid Filing a DMCA With Google?

In a response to a forum thread posted on HubPages, I felt compelled to answer Marisa Wright and others in this short article. I'd like to clear up some facts, present the law, and dispel any myths. Any anger directed towards me is clearly misplaced. My hope is that every writer is able to leave the HubPages platform and receive the entire amount of his or her earnings.

Squidoo Authors Who Migrated to HubPages: Here Are Your Choices

The grace period for Squidoo authors who transferred to HubPages ends soon, on January 15th, 2015. At which point, authors may find their work doesn't measure up to the QAP on HubPages. Moving content off of HubPages means losing the 301 redirect that proves you are the original author to Google. Plagiarists and scrapers seem to target HubPages more than any other site I've researched. Feel trapped? Well, you do have some recourse and choices.

HubPages: To Report Or Not To Report?

As predicted, the tension between Hubbers and former Squids has writers scrambling to find the spam on HubPages. Many people still believe that Paul Edmondson was telling the whole truth when he stated that Google had put a manual action on a couple of subdomains for pure spam. I had a hunch the problem wasn't with the writers. And finally, I figured out where Google sees the spammiest line of all - thousands of times online. And no, the writers are not to blame.

Dear Pinterest, HubPages Stole My Work and Identity

Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse, it did. After reading a HubPages forum thread about doing a Google search of your name and hubpages in quotes, I decided to do the same. Not only was I disturbed by the entries returned for my stolen identity and content, I was shocked by what turned up for my friend TanoCalvenoa (who deleted all of his Squidoo work August 20th, 2014). I think it's become crystal clear why HubPages will not let someone remove their author content.

Dear Larry Page and Paul Edmondson

Here we are at the end of 2014 and I'm wondering how I will make ends meet at the end of February. I have no idea how long it will take to hear back from the IC3 or Level 3 Communications, the ISP for HubPages. For now, Consumer Affairs has let me know they are "waiting for a response from the company." In the meantime, I thought I'd try to get through to Larry Page since it appears that Paul Edmondson has blocked me on Google Plus.

Online Writers: You'll Love Google's New Scraper Report

Just when I felt like giving up chasing plagiarists, Google comes up with an easier way to report them. I couldn't wait to try out Google's Scraper Report and I bet you'll love it too. Plus, it gives me an emotional boost to know in mere seconds I can report a page - even if it's written in another language. The key way I find scrapers is to look for words that don't translate easily. Often, I find my pen name or the name of this site, InfoBarrel, gives them away.
