    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.

            Ah that's great, I've come across a few of them sad . Yeah I'll try and see what Ican do I'll keep you posted. I've started again on my hub page so it should look better when i've sorted it out. I hope this will be a nice passive income! big_smile

          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.

            Look to the right-hand blue bar for Adsense info.

                As this link says, if you have an adsense account you enter it--then select whether or not to join the Hubads program.

                    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.

    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.

      It does look as though some of the "niche sites" are going to do well so there is potential for improved earnings for some, I think - but otherwise your analysis is spot-on.
