Hubpages: A Touch On Everything

Updated on July 16, 2011

When I saw the news about HubPages being nominated as Best Consumer's online site, it's not a surprise anymore for me. It is a trending site for hubbers around the world who are continue to make a difference in writing online. To date, it is the most reliable sources to search various topics that interest you. HubPages touches everything!

It is the brainchild of a humble father named Paul Edmondson. He carries a fatherly authority on the site by baring the rules and regulations that didn't limit the capacity of hubbers to delve on topics that are wholesome and can be understood by young readers.

Friendly neighbors of affiliates fuel the interests of hubbers to recommend products or open it's link for a better understanding on the published hubs.

Write on HubPages!

To experience what I call " a touch on everything" you have to sign up first. You must use either your name or alias as you add your email address.

Writing a profile depends upon your outlook on writing and how you can attach yourself or abide with the policies of Hubpages.

The user-friendly tools in this writing sites prompt you to write your first hub. You can easily add followers and as it Hubpages continue to add new features, you can now write your thoughts about everything, just like in social media.

You can write your personal experiences by tweaking it on the subject. It's the term for incorporating hub-blog mixture like on the feature articles of magazines.



You can't touch these!!!

Hubbers are given the leeway to write about everything but with exception. Moderators will warn you about certain things that considered to be violations from the rules and regulations of Hubpages.

Take for instance:

  1. linking to prohibited sites - I braved to link one site for my hub about smoking. I was instantly cautioned by HP moderator regarding the suspicious website.
  2. copying and pasting information from other sites - The software of HubPages can easily identify whether you just copy it from the other site, not even taking time to rewrite it.
  3. writing about pornography and gambling - I never touched or have written about pornography and gambling.
  4. writing substandard hubs - The standard is more than 500 words in order to generate high score.
  5. a hub with nothing but photos - I've seen some hubs having photos only more than the words that certain hubber have written.
  6. promotional hubs - Some friends on HubPages, in order to uplift their feelings, I dared wrote promotional hubs, only to know that it's a no-no on HP.

Freedom on writing have limitations, too. Because what we are writing should have a long lasting impression and information as well. Either you can upgrade it or retain it's original content as long as it's written to last for a decade or so.

Note: For a more clearer understanding regarding our responsibility in this virtual writing community, please review HubPages Terms of Use.


Achievements

Hubbers in Actions

Think about having your hub being visited 1 million times and counting. The feat was first accomplished by a hub about cake.

You can also praise one of the HubPages elites who have the most number of followers in the name of Patty Inglish.

How about the most number of hubs ever written? I think it's still Patty to thank for with that achievement.

Hubbers are not solely contributors in this site. They are active participants online by making lots of blog sites, personal websites and continue to expand their horizon by contributing to other sites as well. Some have personal networks that add to the experience to earn decent money online.

Hubpages Ad Program

The continuous expansion on HubPages benefit hubbers by enrolling in its own ad policy program. Aside from the main affiliates, like Google AdSense that which pays 40% monetization with each hub, it's still worthy to note that the site devised its own monetization program for the benefits of the hubbers.


HubPages: What Are They And How You Can Make Money c/o juliekhorton

It's not all about the Benjamins

Learning comes first before getting the compensation for the work done.

With HubPages, a surging source or knowledge spill out everyday in the whole world. Try to imagine if this writing system didn't surface online. You can just rely on blogs (short footnotes or online diaries) without grasping a whole idea of the subject being tackled.

Hubbers are committed to write what they thought of, what they know about their places and things that they felt worth-knowing from general to particular and the trivialities of life.

      @thesailor: You bet it is. If you search for a certain topic, HubPages has it.

      Like I said, anything under the sun that you can think of, HubPages will surely give a run with other writing sites due to the tremendous response and dedicated hubbers that keep on increasing everyday.
