HubPages Green Flies, Part 3
HubPages Green Flies, Part 3
Continuing our tour of web sites that leverage the success of HubPages.com, we examine several domains that consume HubPages content for repackaging and potential advertising success.
Indeed, this series of hubs about sites that piggyback on HubPages could indeed trundle on for many thousands of words. Sufficient quantities of green-fly sites persist. They ain't going away anytime soon: they are just different enough to keep the lawyers away, but suing a offshore site operated by automated software and registered to shell corporations in the Cayman Islands tends to be problematic anyway.
Read on. You may receive an inspirational flash of inspiration for your own web site. Microsoft stole from Apple (allegedly) and Apple appropriated from Xerox (also allegedly): you are merely following in the footsteps of greatness. Innovators with far more chutzpah than you have borrowed far more valuable concepts.
Looking for yet another HubPages 'front-end'? Tired of actually visiting HubPages in order to peruse HubPages content? Check out HubsDirectory.com, where the motto is "The Hotest, Best And Latest Hubs From HubPages.com". Subterfuge takes a holiday.
25 categories appear on the home page. Click on any of them to drill down a little bit. Clicking on 'Relationships' links to a hierarchy of over 233 pages replete with relationship hubs. Wrapped around all four sides of the hierarchy are Google ads in various shapes and sizes. Click on any of the 10 Hub links to jump directly into HubPages.
An advanced search feature provides filtering by "Release Date", which isn't readily available on the Real HubPages site. How the Release Date might be determined is not immediately clear. How the categories relate to the hubs is also foggy: under the Humor category is a hub titled "Creating The Perfect Diet Creating Rule 4". The original HubPages author, 30ishWarriorWoman, assigned her work to the HubPages hierarchy "Health /Diet and Weight Loss / Weight Loss.
In our search for MoneyMakingHubPageWritingHelp we uncovered a site called HowToBuildaMoneyMakingHubPage.com. This little gem provides a blueprint for crafting moneymaking Hubs. The page host, Jerrico Usher, plans to publish a lesson plan for generating $2000 a month from HubPages income streams. As of this writing, much of the site is still under construction, but quite a bit of verbiage can be found on the home page.
Countries 'pwn' TLD (Top Level Domain) names: for example, "us" is The United States and "in" is India. A HubPages specialty site, HubPages.in, claims to provide "Quality Articles On All Topics Written By Expert Authors" in the "World's First Indian Article Directory." Start at the home page and drill down into over 30 categories, many of which have more than one article beneath.
HubPages.in shares advertising revenues 60/40 with its' authors. Ads are placed by Google.
Keep looking for online riches, but bear in mind that ultimately your quest will lead you back to UltimateHubGuide.com. As the home page clearly yells to you: "...Get More Than 10,000 Unique Visitors In Under A Week For FREE". Yes, every word is capitalized. The free guide sells for $9.97 USD, ostensibly because any desperate seeker of Internet riches should be able to afford this paltry amount. All major credit cards, and PayPal, can be used to set your hubs on the path to Easy Street.
HubPages rocks the Internet. Join the HubPages craze to find online fun and riches. Write your way to happiness.
