I know at least a few people who do.
I tried it once or twice but didn't see any effect.
I personally don't backlink or promote much - if a hubs going to take off, it's going to take off.
Sure if I promote it, it may take off two weeks earlier, but what if I'm promoting a hub that just never had a chance, anyway? I'd rather write more hubs.
I've seen it help on a short term basis, like the immediate 24 hours after.
My hubs get indexed in less than 24 hours anyway so tehre is very little point in pinging.
All my own websites are hosted on wordpress, so I just updated the ping list in the general settings on there with about 100 services so I can be sure that my smaller websites are still indexed.
Pinging helps to get your site noticed, and that's always a good thing. A good free ping service to use is pinggoat.com
Also it is particularly recommended to ping after every new blog post. So this same practice can be used for HubPages too.

I'm curious if anyone actually makes money on their hubs. How long did it take for you to make some? Is it a good side income?

Wordpress submits each post to ping services like pingomatic. Should we be submitting our Hubs to these services or submit a ping each time we post a new Hub?
