Starting To Write On HubPages

What is HubPages?

You are browing the web for a place to post your article online and you came across the famous Hubpages. So what is HubPages?

According to Wikipedia, HubPages is a website designed around sharing advertising revenue for high-quality, user-generated content. The interface allows members to create individual pages on specific topics. HubPages differs from many other revenue-sharing sites by using the Google Adsense API to manage the revenue split with writers.

Starting at HubPages

I often hear people saying HubPages is a blogging site. For those who are wondering if this is correct, the answer is HubPages is not a blogging site. HubPages is a place where you can post your article online, to be read by people around the world and to earn side income from it. Another word, you can create articles (called as hubs) regarding any topic you like from how-to’s to family matters. Creating a hub is similar to creating a blog entry and it is extremely user-friendly.

The community over at HubPages is great and there are forums you can hang around to get noticed and even ask questions. The site also comes with Question section where user can post questions online and members can answer them.

Create a hub anyway you like is the best to describe writing at HubPages

Customized to your preferences

Writers are given a huge variety on ways to create a hub. There are capsules where writers can add in order to increase the attractiveness of their hub or even monetize them. You can even adjust the capsules to different locations and even the size of it can be adjusted to a certain limit. HubPages definitely gives the writers ways to create a hub.

At the same time, HubPages has the link capsule that writers can insert their other hubs to increase the traffic flow. These are indeed one of the great ways to promote the rest of your hubs to the world.

There are capsules for text, photos, tables, polls, Amazon, eBay, RSS, quiz and even much more to choose from!

Hubpages offers five different affiliate programs to all writers. They are Google Adsense, Amazon, eBay and Kontera.

1. Google Adsense

Hubpages gives you 60% of Adsense and 40% will go to HubPages itself. These is the main earning method and with a good content, you will generate traffic and there will be a higher chance in some one clicking the ads.

2. Amazon

As for Amazon deals, you get a nice little piece of income when someone actually purchase a product which is being promoted on your hub. In order to do so, you have to place an Amazon capsule (or capsules) on your hub to advertise the product.

3. eBay

eBay has the same working mechanical with Amazon. You can advertise eBay products on your hub and get a certain percentage of income when a sale is made.

4. Kontera

Kontera is one of the online contextual advertisers which offer its adverts through inline text, by highlighting relevant text. However, the fact is that you got to get a lot of successful clicks with Kontera before you can see any nice earning from it. I am not sure of the rest but I am getting very less clicks with Kontera. However, it is always great as an addon income generator.

5. Referral program

I love the part where you wil get 10% of your refer's ads income. 10% might not be much but in the long run, it is indeed a very well and great source of income.

Get yourself noticed

HubPages rank highly in search engines and has a high PR

HubPages has a good record in the eyes of Google and Yahoo! Most hubs will rank well in search engines if the quality is good. Therefore, in the case for promoting and getting traffic to your hub, HubPages is indeed one of the best out there.

Until date, I have a couple of Hubs that rank well in search engines and I am glad to see the constant traffic flowing in on daily basis. 

There are debates on the topic if HubPages page rank has effect on your hubs. In my opinion, I strongly believe it will have some effects on our articles. However, it also depends on our own as hubs with quality will slowly but surely getting more traffic.

Acknowledgement at HubPages

At HubPages, you get acknowledgement if you are active. Personally, I love this as we all love acknowledgement. You will be awarded with Accolades which are badges. You can simply earn them by reaching certain number of fan, being active in forums or simply by posting more hubs over a period of time.

The best part has yet to come. There are fan mail section where you can show off to others what you fans are saying to you such as “You are hot” and “Great Hub”. Basically, HubPages allows writers to have their own fan club. Fans are also known as followers at here.

As for your articles, there are feedbacks such as useful, beautiful and awesome article. These will also be published at the side of your profile for others to see. It is always nice to see people cherish what you write. As a writer, I consider that is the best reward one can ever get!
