Updated on August 29, 2013

Is It Worth Writing Hubs Anymore: The Answer Is Yes

More and more people seem to be wondering whether it is worth writing on Hubpages anymore. This is because from time to time Hubpages seems to experience a major drop in traffic, and this causes panic among Hubbers.

So, is it worth writing hubs on Hubpages anymore? Of course it is still worth it! Hubpages still offers people many benefits, even when the traffic is not so good. If you want to find out what some of these benefits are, then continue to read the rest of this Hub.

Gain Exposure

Hubpages may have been one of the top websites to suffer the wrath of Google Panda and Google Penguin, but Hubpages is still one of the top websites to write for when someone wants to gain exposure as a writer. If you want to gain exposure for yourself or for a specific cause, then there is no better place than Hubpages to gain exposure.

Maybe you want to raise awareness for a specific type of charity, and if that is what you are trying to do, then writing Hubs relating to that charity may be very beneficial for you. Maybe you want to gain exposure for yourself because you are an aspiring musician. It literally does not matter what you want exposure for, the chances are you can gain some by publishing content to Hubpages.

Hone Your Writing Skills

Maybe you are not the best writer, and you are interested in honing your writing skills. If this sounds like you, then Hubpages is a great place to gain some experience with writing and it is the perfect place to hone your writing skills.

There are a few ways Hubpages can help you hone your writing skills, with one of the best being the other writers you find on the site. Find some of the top writers on Hubpages, and then pay close attention to their Hubs. Check out the way they structure their Hubs, where they are placing commas and hyphens and so forth. Basically, you want to pay close attention to their grammar and the way they are structuring their Hubs. If you do this, then your writing skills will surely improve over time.

Earn A Little Bit Of Extra Cash

Will you earn thousands of dollars per month writing Hubs for Hubpages? Not likely. This may have been possible months and months ago, but ever since Google's algorithm changes, the chances of making thousands of dollars per month on Hubpages is unlikely going to happen.

The good news is that there is still a little bit of money to be made here. If you are looking to earn $50-$100 per month on Hubpages, then this is a realistic goal that you can achieve, even if you are a newbie. Just don't join Hubpages with the hopes and dreams of making a whole bunch of money from it, because the chances are that you won't.

Create Videos And Upload Them To Hubpages

Sure, there are many video platforms that allow you to upload videos. However, YouTube seems to have cemented the top spot for people to upload their videos too, leaving many video sharing websites struggling to get members.

However, this is not the case with Hubpages. Hubpages is one of the top websites in the world, and if you want to draw attention to a video of yours, then uploading your video to Hubpages is a smart idea. Uploading a video to Hubpages is very easy to do, and it does not take a genius to know how to do it.

      If you want to make money AND write something timeless and worthwhile, this is not the time to put anything on Hub Pages.

      If you want loads of traffic for your in depth hubs this this is not the time to put anything on Hub Pages.

      But for me there is still a role for Hub pages. It is useful to get backlinks to other pages and it has some useful capsules. For me the code capsule is useful, and I suspect I will find the video capsule useful.

      But I have started moving my IT related articles to Digital Steampunk and my Edinburgh related articles go onto theRealBadjao as the primary aim of the one is something so show case my skills on my CV and secondarily as online notes, and the Edinburgh articles are marketing for http://www.badjao.co.uk

      And Hub pages has a good community which is important.

      So while Hub Pages is no longer my prime target it still has a role

      Thanks for this hub. I seriously considered quitting Hubpages just days ago. My writing is going in a different direction, and I really don't have time to write hubs.

      However, reading some of your points, esp, regarding gaining exposure, has made me rethink my plans.

      Good hub. Voted up and useful.
