HubPages Green Flies, Part 2

Updated on August 18, 2011

HubPages Green Flies

Part 1 of our discussion of HubPages hangers-on provided profiles of several sites making a living from HubPages content and traffic. We continue with several sites that probably do not yet exist, but certainly deserve cyberspace consideration. offers many of the same services and features of Aspiring writers publish screeds addressing virtually any pseudo-interesting topic. Google ads appear on the pages. Comments accumulate in comment widgets. Readers become enraged or bored. However, rewards authors based on lack of traffic. Income accumulates inversely to readers. A page visit lasting .01 seconds pays better than an hour-long peruse.

You may ask yourself: "How can this work?". The answer is simple. When a web browser leaves a SnubPages page, it obviously loads a new page somewhere else on the Internet. Income is automatically diverted from the new page back to the SnubPages author. In effect, SnubPages writers provide hits to other web sites and are compensated accordingly. provides authoring tools for aspiring Internet Millionaires and writers. By design, none of the capsule tools support any editing whatsoever. No typos or spelling errors can be corrected. This technology provides fascinating insights into the extemporaneous literary abilities of Joe Lunchbucket and Tammy Twofinger as they struggle with dangling participles and proper tenses. Wheat from chaff is rapidly separated as frustrated literary giants fall by the wayside. Visit frequently: today's amateur Hemingway may be tomorrow's fry cook.

Given that the Internet suffers from a lack of emotion, fills this literary void. The site accepts only pointless ravings of anonymous bloggers living in parent's basements. Writers may not use real names. Rather, the site assigns random handles and avatars derived from popular anime webisodes and reruns of The View. Visitors to the site thrill to never-ending volumes of uninformed political rants interspersed with partisan political rants and peppered with home-based business political rants.

Many parts of the world have lawns. Billions of dollars are spent annually on fertilizers, pesticides, mowing, trimming, seeding, watering, raking, aerating, and cute little gnomes. Unfortunately, yard denizens are woefully under-served in cyberspace. Yard-based creatures starve for Internet content. offers writing and resources for every little critter inhabiting the greenspace between the front porch and the sidewalk. categories include:
