10.Real People

When on HubPages, one can be reasonably sure that real people will find his/her articles and provide meaningful and useful feedback on it. This is a site where real interactions happen and relationships are forged.

9.Not too Commercial

Unlike some other content sites, HubPages is not a place overrun with people trying to promote their affiliate links. Neither is it a place where people keep posting links to their own work. There is an element of selflessness here, and sharing the quality efforts of fellow hubbers is encouraged through referral links.

8.No Spam

HubPages is a community that does not spam its members with updates and offers. Members of HubPages have the ability to choose if they want to receive updates. They can choose which topic threads, questions, forum posts and hubs they want to follow.

7.Genuine Feedback

Hubs, questions and forum posts on HubPages receive genuine feedback from real people who have something meaningful to say. Feedback of this quality is quite rare on other content-creation sites.

6.A Place where Creativity Thrives

HubPages is a community of creative people. Here, creative people are rewarded for their hard work with badges, followers, encouraging feedback and money. A random exploration of the site will throw up many hubs with quality content and a good level of engagement.

5.Targeted Traffic

Unlike on some other sites, content on HubPages receives targeted and high quality traffic, which results in meaningful engagement. Hub and question creators have the ability to choose the category to which their post belongs from a wide variety of niches.

4.Transparent System

HubPages, unlike a large number of sites out there, is transparent. As a creator, you have the tools required to check for violations in your articles. Also, it definitely helps that the HubPages staff, and even the co-founders create hubs on a regular basis and post their feedback on the hubs of others, even new members.

3.Many Ways to Earn

On HubPages, one doesn't earn merely from Google Adsense through PPC (Pay Per Click) ads. There are many other avenues of income on the site. When one signs up for the HubPages Earning Program, it is possible to earn from CPM (Cost Per 1000 iMpressions), Amazon and E-bay affiliate capsules and referrals too! And the great thing here is that one earns from sharing other people's content on external sites through referral trackers. This is a great reason to read the hubs of others and share them on social media, thereby enriching the HubPages community.

2.Top Quality Rating System

HubPages is a place where meaningful writing gets rewarded. Members get to hop hubs and choose candidates for 'Editor's Choice'.HubPages staff pick pick a 'Hub of the Day' daily. Readers can vote each hub up or down and also choose from a list of options if it was 'beautiful', 'awesome' or 'useful' and so on. Apart from all this, there also happens to be an automatic system that assigns a 'hub score' for each hub, and a 'hubber score' for each member. In fact, the automated system is at work, in real time, even as a hub is being created, setting targets for the writer, and warning him/her of possible weaknesses in the hub from the rules and search engine optimization point of view.

1.Great Community

One excellent aspect of HubPages is the fact that virtually every hub gets meaningful feedback from hubbers. This feedback gives the writer a real picture of where he/she stands, and the areas where he/she must improve.

The community on HubPages is closely knit unlike many other writing sites where profit is the sole motive. This is a place for people who are serious about their writing, and therefore willing to persevere.
