The Benefits of Sharing Hubs on HubPages

Updated on July 3, 2014

Sharing Hubs

HubPages is more than writing words and pressing the Publish button.

As an online writer, you need to share your work on social media networks and interact with the HubPages (HP) community to increase your visibility.

When you share your recently published works, as well of other hubbers' works, you are strengthening your path to success at HP.

Another Way to Earn Money

Yes, one benefit of sharing hubs on HubPages is that this is another way to earn money on the website. This point refers to sharing your own hubs.

You have likely heard of RSS feeds. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. You are able to add RSS links to your hubs. Read the article at the side for step-by-step instructions on how to set up an RSS feed.

When readers, whether HubPages writers or not, click one of the links in your RSS feed of your hub, they are easily taken to your most recently published hubs. You can display between one link and eight links on the feed.

The RSS feed feature is a useful HubPages tool. You boost your earnings as you provide easy, ready-to-go links for readers who want to read other content you have written. Your recently published hubs will see a spike in reads.

As well, Google notes that you have new content, which is a good thing! Make it easier for readers to find your newer hubs and encourage them to continue reading with the ease of the RSS feed!

How to Share Hubs on the HP Feed

  • Press the HubPages Followers button on the right-side of the page.
  • Automatically adds the published work to the feed of your Followers.

Quality Work

Another benefit of sharing hubs is that you are able to share quality work written by your peers.

You may want to spread a topic of interest to your Followers and therefore share a related hub that you read. You may learn an important fact during another read and want to educate your Followers. Sharing work within the HubPages community allows you these benefits.

Share Work That Is Well-Written

When you share the written works on the website's electronic stream, you help a hub to reach a larger audience. Your Followers will likely appreciate when you share high-quality work that includes useful tips, especially if you do it sparingly. Remember that sometimes less really is more.

Be careful not to over-share within the HP Feed. If you share lower-quality hubs or share too many of them (several shares within a minute, for example) then you may annoy your Followers.

Those people will find their feed inundated with your shares, and if they are not all stellar hubs then they are not likely to be impressed! They may stop reading your own work or even Unfollow you.

Reach More Readers

Reciprocal Sharing

You may have encountered the funny situation at HP when you look at the Feed and actually see one of your own hubs shared by another writer.

For me, it is a great feeling to see my work being promoted in this way. When I see a hubber share one of my works, I often do the same in return when I enjoy a hub.

I call this method "reciprocal sharing". You are more likely to share a quality hub of a writer who does the same for you. This connection gives you both more reads as your hubs reach a larger audience (not only your own Followers). More reads has the added benefit of more income based on higher page views.

As well, you may get new Followers who come across your hub in the electronic stream and want to read your hub. If they like what they read, they may just hit the Follow button! The bonus is receiving Fan Mail!

The Benefits

There are many benefits to sharing hubs. While your main source of income at HubPages likely comes from hitting the Publish button, you can also earn money from sharing hubs with your Followers. Remember to be wise as to what you share and the number of hubs too.

Sharing work also creates a reciprocal connection with other writers and helps give more visibility to quality writing. Let's help each other be read and improve the visibility of written work, one share at a time!
