I think it would be cool if hubpages had a market, where members could buy, sell hubs, hire other hubbers to write hubs for them, etc.
It would also be fun if we could check what each of our hubs and all our hubs are "worth".
I totally agree with you. It would be good to do that here on Hubpages as it would keep it in house.
You can of course sell your HP account on other forums that buy and sell this type of stuff. One of my close friends sold her Squidoo account for five figures so I know it can be done.
I would like to see the idea catching on where it can be asked of other hubbers to write up hubs for others who need a page or two written.
If Relache is right about the Hubpage team not supporting these ideas, I am sure they soon would if they could get a slice of the action, let's say 10% but probably more like 40%. Although you do bring up a good point about bringing in more content to the site, and it's that content that makes this site money.
I would support such an idea.
You can do all the activities you suggest (hiring someone to write, selling a hub, buying a hub) already. As HubPages does not support these ideas, as evidenced by their responses to all the times this question has come up in the past, it's unlikely that they will build such a feature.
And then there's how the community at large feels about the issue, http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/48190
Disclosing anything but net earnings is against the ADSense TOS. And why would a successful Hub author want to disclose info that could open their Hubs up to copy-catting that might ultimately result in the loss of traffic or earnings?
Thanks for the info relache.
By selling hubs I didn't mean to to sell them for third party sites, but strictly between two hubbers. The sold hub itself would stay within hubpages. It just would be beneficial for hubbers who need some cash fast (and not wait for AdSense payout minimum to be reached)
By worth I didn't mean AdSense Earnings. I you search google for the term "what is your website worth" you will find bunch of sites. They usually "value" your site based on your backlinks. I meant something like that; just a fun estimate, not an official or serious value. This would enable hubbers to learn from the most valuable hubs (It would also benefit hubpages financially).
Thanks for pointing me to the forum topic. Checked it out.

Although I am here for a love of writing, however it would be nice to be able to earn some money for my passion also. Has anyone here actually seen decent earnings?
