How and Why I joined Hub Pages
First a bit of introduction about myself. I am into the MMO(Making Money Online) business for about 3 years now. I have created a few websites and blogs since then. I have gone through almost all the SEO techniques and internet marketing strategies. I have used the social media to the maximum of it. I have generated backlinks and a large number of them through a variety of methods and sources. I have ranked high in SERPS(Search Engine Result Pages). I have been at the first position for my keywords and for quite a few of them.
How I Came to Know about the HubPages
It all started with my site getting penalized. Yes, you heard it right A PENALTY, and that too from the biggest and a highly over-rated search engine, i.e. Google. Let me put this in simpler words. All of a sudden, without doing anything wrong, my major website got penalized by Google. It was the one that earned me most of the money. Google won't show it in SERPS any more. I lost 90% of my traffic and incomes dropped drastically. Because my main site got penalized, I thaught of making another blog to earn me some money. As I had done some research on keywords of that site, I thought my blog should have the same keywords. So the blog was made having same keywords. Next step was to gether some good content for it which obviously was done by searching the web through search engines and "Hub Pages" came again and again in the SERPS. Then I thaught of visiting the home page as the pages in serps were the articles written by hubbers. So, I visited the main page of Hub Pages and there I was totally stuck with it. Then I decided to join it and finally after waiting for a while I joined it and I am quite happy with my decision of joining this site.
Reasons for Joining It
Three very simple reasons:
1) I loved the articles written by hubbers
2) I wanted to write some articles of my own
3) I thought I can earn some money here
