Introducing the HubExchange

It's new, as far as you know

You're a good writer, but Google is bored with you. Your evolution from keyboard monkey to accomplished wordsmith has pretty much topped out, yes? We can help each other.

Now is the time to jump into the HubExchange.Your account will receive a much-needed boost in the search engines, or not. At the very least you'll have something to talk about at the next Trilateral Commission conclave.

How does the HubExchange work?

'Work's might be a strong word, but we can certainly explain how the HubExchange operates:

  1. Find a friend or treasured acquaintance on HubPages.
  2. Agree on a common topic
  3. Independently write hubs on that topic and exchange them.
  4. Publish the donor hub on your account, crediting the original author.
  5. Sit back and watch as Google gawks in amazement at your new-found creativity.

How do you find a HubFriend?

Step 1: stop appending 'Hub' to every English word. That's old and tired.

Anyway, as an accomplished HubAuthor (sorry) you should have voluminous volumes of followers by now. Simply pick out a follower who tends toward sycophantic behavior in your general direction. Gently contact them, proposing a HubExchange© transaction. Use Internet email or clandestine meetings at Starbucks to exchange writings.

Topics

Seriously? You need topics? Get out of bed and look around. There's a big world out there waiting to be written on.

Oh, all right:

  • Lawn care using spent nuclear fuel

That's all you get. Think up your own topics. You can do it.

What could go wrong?

"Wrong" is such a harsh word. Look forward to enjoying eons of interaction with fellow hubbers rather than fretting over a possible stalking lawsuit. Certainly it could go either way if you don't choose your friends wisely. We're here to help, but at that point you're on your own.

Disclaimer

This is neither an offer to buy nor a solicitation to sell. No endorsement of HubExchange by HubPages.com and its lawyers is expressed or implied. They have more common sense than that and they live in San Fransisco.

Here is a product that is lexically related but not semantically related to this hub.

A group of 16 of us hubbers did this last summer (July) and it was one of the most gratifying experience of my almost two years here. Take a look at The Journey and see what can come of this kind of collaboration! Thanks for spreading the idea nicomp!
