Hubpages VS Triond: Why Not Just Write For Both?

It appears to me, that many eager writers may be confused or torn when they want to find out which site is better to write on: Hubpages or Triond. This debate, by the looks of it, has been going on for a while, but it seems to me that the only reason why it has been is because many people do not have the correct information about how to make money from these sites.

Hubpages and Triond are very similar to one another, mainly because it gives writers the chance to pick any subject to write about. I write for both, and I like the results from my work on both. The main difference between Hubpages and Triond is the ability to have articles published at a faster speed. With Triond, the writer has to wait until the website publishes their work, but honestly, this doesn't take very long, and it is not a hard process to go through either.

Here are the similarities:

  • They both use Adsense
  • Writers can write about whatever topic they want about in both
  • Writers can earn money from both adsense and residual income
  • Writers get accolades or "trophies" to congratulate them on their hard work and to show off their Milestones
  • Writers have the option of marketing their published articles as soon as they publish them.
  • And finally: They are both incredibly popular among readers. More than 50% of the time, the most popular and content filled articles come from either Triond or Hubpages!

Main Differences: Even though Hubpages and Triond are very much alike, there are some key differences between them that make either one of them more or less favorable to their writers.

  • With triond, you do have to wait until the site publishes your articles, for first time publishers it may take a day, but as soon as you publish more articles, the wait is less. Hubpages publishes your articles instantly, but there isn't a way to promote the articles like Triond after publication.
  • Writers can earn their fair share of money working for both Triond and Hubpages. On hubpages the split is 60/40, on Triond its 50/50. Hubpages has the Hubpages Ad program which is basically a program where you can see you earnings in Pennies adding up each and every month! Like triond, a person can publish and earn money every month, however, on Triond you can cash out you reach the threshold of .50 cents. on Hubpages it's more like $50. BIG difference.
  • Both Triond and Hubpages give you accolades or "trophies" where the writer can show off when they reach a small or big milestone: how many articles they publish, how many times they've been viewed and so on. These are more apparent on Hubpages, but Triond Writers also get their news shared on the "news feed" prompting others to be more interested on the articles.
  • Writers can promote their articles on both Hubpages and Triond, however on Triond, writers can promote their articles from over 329 social networks, webpages and so on, from the "share" button provided by the website. Hubpages does not have a button such as this one, but writers can promote their articles on their own.
  • Finally! Both Hubpages and Triond users can earn money from both websites! They can write about whatever they like! So, why not earn extra money and just write for both. They both get incredible amounts of traffic and great comments from social networks!

I hope this helps all those that are wondering which is the "better" writing site. Its all about what you prefer!

I was actually a bit curious about Triond myself, and you might have convinced me to give it a go. Exactly what does Triond do to promote your work that Hubpages doesn't?

Thanks Jessi! Great hub!

Thank you. Well, like I said before, Triond allows writers to promote their articles with an easy "share" button that they can find in the "Published articles" section of the website. Its easy, because unlike Hubpages, Triond connects the writer to almost 330 social popular and high traffic bookmarking sites. Hubpages doesn't give you this option. It only offers Twitter and facebook..

Give it a try! Heres a link:

Hi Jessi - your article made sense to me. Thank you for shedding some light on the subject. Can you publish the same article on both sites?

Joe 5 years ago

Sorry - I should of been more clear. Can you publish something that you are writing on both sites, without going against anything?

Jessi10 profile image

Jessi10 5 years ago from Lancaster, CA Author

You can publish the same articles on both sites, as long as you own the rights to them. However, i suggest making slightly different versions of the articles so that you can put links to the articles to other pages. That way, you create more traffic to your articles! Hope this works for you!

Here is the link to Triond!

Are you sure about this Jessi? I was told anything published elsewhere would get flagged on HP, but perhaps I was misinformed. If this is the case, I don't see why anyone wouldn't publish their hubs on both Triond and HP.

I will follow your lead soon. Great information and useful too. Be blessed

Joe 5 years ago

Thanks Jessi. By owning the rights, do you mean to copyright? I have read some questionable things about Triond, that maybe you know about. I have read that they heavily censor what you write, and some people actually have had their articles taken from them, renamed and no more kickback from it? I read this all online, but I'm sure you know - sometimes people exaggerate, etc. Any experience with this?

Joe: Triond has had problems in the past, but honestly I havent had one problem with them so far. I have had to talk to someone about problems with my earnings, but honestly the problems got taken care of almost immediately.

As far as the censoring, this place is not unlike any other website. You can write about what ever you want, just read the guidelines and you will be fine.

Thanks for this article Jessi, I have never heard of Triond, so it's good to learn about it.

Just to clarify - can we post same articles we publish on HubPages to Triond?

Wouldn't HP remove the hubs for being duplicates?

Which site is the most frequented by interested readers?

I actually write for both Triond and HubPages, although I haven’t written for Triond in a while because I have been concentrating on building up my HubPages stats. While the HubPages community is more engaging, I earn money more quickly with Triond. Almost immediately after publishing an article, I see financial reward. I have found that Triond prefers content to be written more like industry standard articles. They are not as strict as eHow, but not as lenient as HubPages. But still, with Triond I can write about anything I want. It's the same with HubPages, but with HubPages, I can relax a little on content structure. I like both Triond and HubPages, however I like them for their differences, which are few. I'm not sure about being able to copy and paste the same content on both Triond and HubPages, but I am sure I can promote an article from Triond to an article on HubPages, which I have done with no problems.

Jessi10 5 years ago from Lancaster, CA Author

Katrine: Yes, we can. However, you need to make sure that the articles are somewhat different from each other. I publish articles on HP THEN on triond! Give it a try!

Perspycacious: I think That both HP and Triond are as popular with readers. I havent really been working on Triond As much, However, I STILL get traffic to those articles. On HP I've had to build my portfolio in order to increase my traffic..

MarleneB: I totally agree with you. These sites are both GREAT for writers that like to just write for fun. And the cash isn't bad either! Keep on working on your articles!

Jessi, thanks for explaining this. actually i came across Triond before Hubpages. I was taken aback because at first i thought they have very strict structures when it comes to writing output (i am having difficulty since i am not a professional writer). that is why i didn't start there. i preferred hubpages because of the "ease" in content and structure. but now that you have explained it better, i think i might try it there. great hub!

Jessi, I've signed up for triond but had my first articles rejected. It needs to be original content, as I'm sure you know. I've thought about deleting my blog and moving those posts over to triond. Would this prove beneficial?

Jessi10 profile image

Jessi10 5 years ago from Lancaster, CA Author

I would just write a different version of your blog posts. Don't delete your blog completely, because you are already making money on Adsense.

my blog has two folloers. I've made .01 on it int he last six months. I don't promote it enough. hubpages and Triond have built in audiences. These seem like better options.

Jessi10 5 years ago from Lancaster, CA Author

If you prefer it. I wouldn't erase my blog. I would however, use Both Hubpages and triond to Market my Blog posts. That way, i'm making money more than one way.

PDXKaraokeGuy 5 years ago from Juneau, Alaska

Jessi... I didn't mean to imply I was going to erase my blog. I use my blog to drive traffic elsewhere (posting links and summaries to my articles). but, I may delete and move some of the posts to Triond... at least until they're approved for posting.

Interesting ideas, though I do know that Google specifically goes to great lenghths to find duplicate content and lowers the ratings of any that is found. If you are going to publish the same articles just modified they should be at least 30% different, which is the threashhold that is mentioned multiple times in various SEO articles I have found.

This is great! I just signed up at Triond, Thank you for sharing! I've been wondering about other sites that are similar to hubpages. But I do have a question: Is it a good idea to publish the same articles that I have published here on hubpages on triond just to get things started, or is that bad form?

Jessi10 profile image

Jessi10 4 years ago from Lancaster, CA Author

dmop: Thats true. Each article should be modified. You can certainly publish articles on both sites, as long as the sites allow you to. Thanks for reading!

Edgar Arkham: You should change the articles a bit if you want to publish the articles that you have on Hubpages, and use them on Triond. The website might deny your articles if they are the very same..

Hope this helped!

Thank you very much for this comparison of HP and Triond. I have accounts with both sites but have not had the time to develop my Triond site very much. Because I am also on Examiner, Associated Content (aka Yahoo! Voices) and Infobarrel, I feel like I'd be spreading myself out too thin if I also was writing for Triond. But I do want to visit the site in the future. Thanks again.

Hally Z. Thank you for commenting.

Triond is a great site for generating passive income, and earning with Google Adsense. Last year, I concentrated on building my Triond platform, and I ended up making a bit of money on both residual income, and Google Adsense. I hope you continue to earn with this site! Good luck on your business, sounds like you are doing great!

Triond is good for backlinks, writer freedom and overall ease of use except for when there are glitches.

your info was good but i dont find triond worth trying, even if you dont publish an article on a single day your traffic falls down. also the money which comes is too slow, i am almost giving it up now after two months and wriitng so many articles there
