    Do you think there are people here who get paid by outside interests to post on the forum? Just curious what you think.

      I think it's more likely people are paying others to write hubs (which can be a part of SEO practise for a website). But the forums? Not sure why anyone would care that much about the HubPages forums to pay for it.

      Being a "newbie" to hubs, I never even thought about it. However anything is possible and you know people can do some pretty off the wall things.

      probably. it could be part of a social media budget to post on high trafficked forums.
      or to keep the forums buzzing to bring in traffic.

      I was thinking about this the other day.

      I think they do.

    If there is a market for it, then you can bet that those who have the funds/resources to pay market value or set market value will utilize it. smile

      I've been wondering the same thing since I saw this thread - thought I was missing something ...

      Maybe a thread about hair products? And then the paid poster writes.. I love x brand because of x, y and z. Just a guess, lol.

    I keep seeing ads on oDesk and other places for people to post on forums to promote something or other.

    As a matter of fact specific governments hire people to promote government agendas
    on forum sites.

    I see recurring spam posts for shoes and for how to burn to DVDs.

    I would think it is more than possible. If I were going to pay someone it would be to make hubs.

    For at least a decade, my impression is that there is paid-to-post.
