low priority, not-a-big-deal fyi to HP

    Is HP aware of this?

    Ad on Yahoo first page near bottom when "hubpages" is the search word:

    --- start ---

    HubPages: Writers Needed
    $15/article. Steady work. Full support. Hiring now. Writers needed.
    Freedom With Writing . com

    --- end ---

    I did not go there to check further because I thought it might be some kind of bait.

    Is it a true sponsored HP ad or someone writing for HP hiring writers? I'm sure there are hubbers here who hire writers.

    who knows..

      You would be right. I think Misha has accepted writing from other people he has wanted to write articles for him. It would be better if Misha would confirm it though. wink

        Sure I did. Some of my hubs were written by other well known hubbers, some by total strangers, some by myself. smile

          Thank you Misha for confirming what I said. I was pretty sure I had read it somewhere once before, but do appreciate your post. smile

      If it’s a legit and honest ad, then I think they are going to hit their writer quota limit very fast now... I’d be fine with that. smile

      HP sponsored or independent, either way; nobody would pay $15 to have junk posted here. The more quality articles the better.

    I saw that a few weeks ago. It takes you to some site offering to (if I remember correctly) to teach you how to make money online or something like that. Nothing to do with HP at all.

    I know that there definitely are successful Hubbers who pay others to write for them, but I'm not sure where (or whether) they would advertise.

      If they are willing to pay for writers, then I’m guessing they are willing to pay for advertising. smile

      I'm a full time freelance writer on Elance and there are ALWAYS projects posted for Hubpages and Squidoo.  I actually did a job about a year ago that I just assumed were content for a web page and have stumbled across them on here.

    Hmmm. I'm going to do a whois and send them an invoice. lol

    I didn't know that it was legal to use another's company name like that.
