I can't seem to sign up because I'm a UK citizen! How can resurrect this??
There are quite a good few UK citizens registered here, so if you're having problems, it may be something else. Could you give more details?
It won't accept any of my information like my national insurance number ect. You know the basic stuff. Or is the site just another scam?
It certainly isn't a scam.
It's a while now since I signed up, but I don't remember having any difficulty. If it won't accept an NI number, try leaving it out. Surely there's somewhere that asks if you are a US citizen which should allow alternatives.
I don't remember having to add my NI. Just looking at my account - no NI number there.
So, as I can see your profile, http://hubpages.com/@itechstories you are already registered at Hubpages, so what's the problem?
Edit: You've written two hubs, although I don't think the 'Computer Maintenance Tutorial' will be approved because it isn't a complete article. HubPages isn't a blog site so writing about forthcoming attractions isn't going to work.
Your other one 'Development Corner' won't be approved either. It starts off about addiction to online games and then goes off on a weird recipe tangent. Further down you have a section on anxiety. Hubs are supposed to be complete, standalone, magazine-style articles.
You need to spend a lot of time studying how HP works. Have a look at this http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents, especially the article about Stellar Hubs.
As a UK citizen you don't have to enter any tax information. You simply make a declaration that you're not a US citizen and that's that.
Oh okay, Ill look at the forms again It's very confusing if you're a first timer here
No it isn't, you just need to read the page properly. Before you even open any forms, you'll see the link where you declare you don't need to fill them in.
okay thanks, so i just need to link my amazon and ebay affiliate programs? It be nice if the website had a step by step guide thats easy to understand
Look to the right-hand blue bar for Adsense info.
Thank you so do I just need to do that and link an affiliate program?
As this link says, if you have an adsense account you enter it--then select whether or not to join the Hubads program.
Ah okay, ivr added my PayPal link is there anything else I need to do?
If you haven't already got an Adsense account, then you need to apply. But you can't do that until you have at least 10, and preferably more, well written, published and featured hubs. You can't receive a share of the advertising revenue until you have an Adsense account.
You can use your own Amazon affiliate account to add one Amazon capsule to each hub. Any more than that and the reviewers get jittery about spammy elements. Ebay, too, but probably hardly worth the bother.
Your first task is to read the information in the Learning Center and start writing quality articles. The rest will come a bit later.
Edit: you can't use any other affiliate links.
Thanks. So I can just use my amazon or ebay affiliate accounts to earn for the time being?
Yes, but you won't be earning more than pennies until you have a good collection of featured hubs. I wrote 50-ish before any significant earnings started to appear. Of course you could get lucky with a few high-traffic articles.
Oh okay, cus from what I read on the blog where I found the link to here they explained it you'd be earning highish rates ect. But I thought I'd give it a try. It's nice to hear from someone that's experienced with hubpages as it;s my first time using them.
Correction - you can't use your own eBay affiliate account here - you have to use HP's. And that won't work until you've got your Adsense account, which will allow you to join HP's Earnings Program.
If you've already got an Amazon.com account (that's the American one, not the UK one), then you can use that - but unless you're already using it to earn income on other sites, I don't recommend it. They don't pay out until you've earned $100, and then they send you a CHEQUE (yes, really) which you have to take to your bank, and your bank will charge you £10 to pay it into your account.
Far better to be patient, write your Hubs, apply for Adsense and then join the HP Earnings Program and their Amazon program. Once you're in the Earnings Program you will actually earn little or nothing from Adsense - it's just a prerequisite really.
There's no point fretting about not earning from your Hubs until you get Adsense: even if you had Adsense you'd be lucky to make a few pennies from them in the first few months anyway. You can expect to earn $2 to $5 per thousand views here, which is pretty normal for this type of site. The difference between HubPages and other content sites is that you're likely to get more views here.
Even making payout every month is unusual, but the things you can learn by using the site are worthwhile even if you don't ever reach it. HubPages is also ethical, a rarity in a content farm, and they always pay what they owe, without argument or unnecessary delay.
Writing on HubPages won't cost you anything, and it can help you to learn your strengths before you try jumping right into paying markets. Just don't expect more than enough money to go out on a date every month once you've gotten the hang of things.
I don't earn much of my income from HubPages, but it's dependable, unlike freelance writing gigs. And every penny is coming from work that can't be placed in paying markets, so it's like free money for my pleasure writing and for my passions that aren't profitable. Nothing I have on HubPages would earn a penny elsewhere (because I've moved everything that would), but every month I get enough from HubPages to go out to dinner and a movie or to pay all of the co-pays on my medications. Think about that for a moment.
