Editorial Policy

HubPages.com’s mission is for our community and readers to discover and create original, in-depth, useful, media-rich pages on topics they are passionate about. We have created topical domains to showcase the best articles on HubPages.

The following Editorial Policy is to provide information for potential authors who would like their work on topical domains, e.g.,Bellatory.com, our beauty site, PetHelpful.com, our pet site, or Delishably.com, our food and recipe domain.

In a nutshell…

We are looking for authors with a genuine interest in the article’s topic and whose main motivation is to inform and inspire (not to make money). Authors should have a unique perspective and be willing to share their personal experiences with their readers. Articles should be well written, have original insights into the topic, include high-quality media (preferably original), and contain no spelling errors, grammar mistakes, or spammy elements.

We are not looking for articles that have been published elsewhere, are simple regurgitations of content, or that are written purely to promote a blog or brand. We are also not looking for authors whose main motivation is to make money via unnecessary links, products, or spammy SEO practices—if money is your only goal, our topical domains are not the right venue for your information.
