Hubbing VS Blogging-Know The Difference

Not all too long ago I was esteemed with the honor of being hubber of the month. I was asked some questions and somewhat dealt with this subject there. Many people don't read that newsletter and I think this is a subject that needs to be looked at.

My goal with this hub is to help new hubbers and even a few veterans understand the difference.

Hopefully, I can give you some ideas that will drive your hub scores up and a nice paycheck from ad installment too.

I had also found a video of the GREAT Ryan Hupfer getting interviewed, but it is uninstallable.

If you are new please watch this video. I, like many of my fellow hubber's, want to see quality content on hubpages.

Scroll down and learn a few of my secrets.

Froggy's Advice

John has some great stuff in that video.

I want to first point out that hub's are NOT blog's.

When you make a hub, you are essentially making a one-page website. That is the best way to look at it.

Hubpages gave you all those widget's for a reason, use them! People want to see pictures, video's and your writing's. Yes, your writing's, not other people's.

Below are link's to 5 great, well put together hubs. Take a close look at them and find your style. There are many ways you can put a hub together-play with it and ALWAYS preview your hub before publishing it. Change it if widgets aren't working together well and re-preview it. When it is right, then you publish. I have new hub's on a RSS feed and check them regularly. I and other veteran hubber's do flag the bad hub's; get it right from the start and you won't have to worry.

Each of these five hubs may not be using all widgets, but they are put together very well. They are informative, not full of spam, and are hub-worthy. Read them and learn. Profile pictures of the five hubber's are included.

Spam a No-No

Notice that each of these hubs are very informative. It is each of these hubber's own word's. Most important, no SPAM.

It is ok to backlink to some of your other sites but don't make that your main priority.

Just so you know, I also have blog's. The link's are below. Look at them and at my hub's and you can see the difference.

Residual Income

Many new hubber's have asked me, " Are you making money? " The answer is yes; but it started slow. I have just collected my first $100 from adsense. I have made a total of $176 from E-bay affiliate and 0 from Amazon affiliate.

It takes time and a lot of content.

This is a residual income, much like selling insurance.

Your hub's will be on the web until you delete them so impression's and click's will rack up.

I attempt to write at least one hub a week. As I do, I see more reading of my older hub's.

I use Boomja to backlink and I use stumbleupon and many other bookmarking sites.

It takes time and patience. Don't give up.

If you have question's ask!! I don't mind, I know Ryan Hupfer don't mind and many of the veteran hubber's are more than willing.

We all want hubpages to be #1 and quality is the way to get there,

Ok, time to get off your duff and write a quality hub--No ideas, check the requests, many ideas can come from them.

Hope you learned a little something from this hub and HAPPY HUBBIN!!

I'm not sure what you mean by "ping" Please explain. Happy New Year too!

Ok I looked it up and I don't use it much--only to see if my sites load quick enough-that is it--nothing I hate more than real slow pages loading-.

I looked at Boomja but didn't really like it. I don't like the look of the directory itself, it doesn't have a nice professional feel. Also, I would need a bookmarklet or some other way to quickly add sites without having to leave the webpage/ blog I'm on.

If you set up a WordPress blog you can use a plugin (free) called Link Library. It was fairly simple to set up and run. I've been using it over a year now.
