What you can do at HubPages is basically endless as there is absolutely no limit on the topic and even method of writing. Here are a few topics (of course there are more) but here are the ones you can write easily:

1. Great Page Rank and reputation
HubPages has a high Page Rank (PR) and is currently 6 at the moment. It is very good reputation and articles submitted to the site will easily indexed by Google and other search engines within the day itself. My personal experience with indexing is 2 hours after publishing. Compared to other sites such as Squidoo and Triond, articles in HubPages takes very short time to get into the search engines and thus, increasing enormously in traffic and even chance of click rates.
When it comes to marketing, high page ranks are able to improve backlinks and and thus improving link building not only between websites but also articles. Thinking about increasing page rank of your site? HubPages is definitely the way to go and it works every time. Out of idea on how to backlink?

2. A ready and helping community
The community and readers in HubPages plays a vital role especially in a writer's experience. All your articles are guaranteed a definite visit from at least one hubber (as for the record, HubPages has tenth of thousands of hubbers) if you write good article. Trust me when I tell you that if you manage to write one 'hot' article, you are basically guaranteed a constant traffic of more than 100 views at day. And yes, I am just giving an example as I am sure that famous and successful hubbers here at HubPages are enjoying more than 300 views a day. I remember reading one of the successful stories where he or she said having nearly 1,000 views a day on one single article.
Besides that, the community also offers not only comments to improve but there are also place where you can interact with others. There are places such as Question & Answer, forums and even hubs that are divided into different categories for you to read. Take a quick dive on the right to see a few examples of improving traffic and increasing readership.
3. Great monetization programs at HubPages
Until date, hubbers or online writers at HubPages are seriously being pampered with multiple ways to earn money online. You can earn money by using:
- Google Adsense
- Amazon affilation program
- eBay affilation program
- HubPages earning program
Honestly this is what makes HubPages so great; the ability to generate income regardless if you are writing a sales page, promoting specific products or even just plain writing. Let's face the fact that it is rather tough to get Google Adsense clicks especially for new comers but with the latest HubPages earning program, you are able to earn a little earning on top of what you are gaining from Adsense, Amazon and eBay.
There is definitely an algorithm for the HubPages earning but is certainly only the staffs of the site would know. Basically, number of traffic, comments and activity all play a vital role in HubPages and its earning scheme. As logic as it seems, you will be earning more if you are constantly and active on the site (so to say). Of course, everything boils down to quality of the content and traffic nonetheless.
Last but not least...
HubPages are known to be one of the best sites to earn money with. What you would need is deep passion and continue writing quality articles. We might not earn much for starters but if we are serious enough, we can easily earn much more (and many hubbers had proven it is possible). Follow your heart and always find ways to improve on your writing and skills to be your competitors.
