The Hubpages Sucks Page
Due to changes over the last two years, and finally with the 'idle hubs' feature I can no longer support or suggest joining Hubpages platforms. I have advised against multiple changes made by Hubpages, and the final choice to de-index hubs based on arbitrary factors is quite simply the last straw.
I'm not going in to details here, but needless to say - despite my previous recommendations of Hubpages I no longer feel that I can recommend this platform without risking my reputation.

Now the community that say Hubpages sucks is as expected rather small, they may all say Hubpages sucks. But judging by their grammar, their overly promotional stories, and even one person who was upset and said Hubpages sucks because he copied content off of a website, and was unpublished for duplicate content, maybe they deserved it.

So Why Do People Say Hubpages Sucks (And Why Should I Not Be Worried?)
There are several Hubpages sucks arguments you see time and time again from people who say Hubpages sucks These people tend to be speaking out of personal vendetta, saying Hubpages sucks for reasons that are more or less their own fault. Let me list some of the reasons people say Hubpages sucks, and more importantly, why they are wrong!
Complaint - Hubpages sucks because they take your money/a percentage of your money and they do nothing!
The Reason - Hubpages does take a percentage, but they make it incredibly easy to insert adverts and sales modules, not to mention how their system really does help your page get to the top of Google for your Keywords!
Complaint - Hubpages sucks because you are meant to make money on their website and I did not.
The Reason - Hubpages does not pay you money, the advertisers (Adsense, Amazon, eBay, Kontera) pay you. That means that if you are not making any money off of Hubpages with these affiliate programs, you are unlikely to make money anywhere.
Complaint - Hubpages sucks because my hub was flagged as overly promotional!
The Reason - Hubpages, like any other website has to worry about spam articles devaluing the rest of the website. Hubpages will not let you just join up, write an article about your own website or some affiliate product in sales speech, and then past a load of affiliate links. Instead try providing information, with just one link back to your own website.
Complaint - Hubpages sucks because they flagged my site for duplicate content, but why should I write unique content when they do not pay me?
Reason - Hubpages might not pay you, but the with good quality unique content the advertisers will. Try asking yourself why you think duplicating your own content, or stealing from others, will bring you any profit, since duplicated content does not work well in Google. Instead write your own unique content to give you search engine success with Hubpages!
Complaint -Hubpages sucks because the forum is full of clubs, people who band together, trolls, people who are ignorant, etc.
Reason - Yes the forum has some specific groups of friends, and like any group of friends you are not just going to walk in to any of them uninvited. But remember the Hubpages forum has thousands of users and you can find people who share your interests. Also BE WARNED, there are people who will also disagree with you, even about your deeply held beliefs if you are religious. If you feel as if you are offended by anything in the forums, no one is making you post or read the forum. You can still make a lot of money, even if you avoid the forums altogether.
However I personally find most of the forum content is enjoyable, and useful!
Complaint - My Hub has been flagged as substandard, I feel insulted, therefore Hubpages sucks!
Reason - Don't feel insulted, and definately don't think Hubpages sucks because of this,it's an automated system! Try cleaning up the grammar, increasing the word count, and picking up your SEO practices. Hubpages will flag your Hub as substandard for the exact same reasons that Google will. If your writing doesn't pass the Hubpages standard, chances are it won't rank well in Google either!
