WHY HUBPAGES IS THE BEST WRITING SITE
When I first came here a few months ago, I really didn't know what to expect. I have wrote online for a few years, but I never found a site that I felt comfortable with. I won't list all the sites I have wrote on, but there are quite a few. I did constant research on the internet. I was new to being online and in all honesty, I wanted to see if I could make money. So I did research on writing sites, taking surveys, answering questions, writing articles, and many other things. In my first year, I found one site and I made $1,500 for the first year answering questions. But, I put a lot of time in on that site and I probably averaged $4 an hour. The site has now changed and it is very hard to make money on now.
While I was doing more research online, I finally came across Hubpages. I began writing articles and poems, as much as I could write. I am currently in that same process. Many people come here to make money and I see nothing wrong with that. We all want to be rewarded for are hard work. And out of all the writing sites online, Hubpagesis the most profitable site online. Now, I am not saying that people haven't made more money on those other writing sites. That is not my point. In an overall setting, Hubpages gives you more opportunity to make a steady income.
HubPages is your online space to share your advice, reviews, useful tips, opinions and insights with hundreds of other authors. HubPages is completely free, and you can even earn online ad revenue!
GOOGLE ADSENSE AND EARNING
On Hubpages, you can sign up for the Google AdSense program or link your account with Hubpages and earn money from add clicks. Hubpages offers easy to follow instructions to set up your account or link your current account to the site. This is a great way to earn extra income and it can be very beneficial. Google will pay you for advertising their adds on your articles or as we call them here, your hubs. If you don't already have a Google account, you will need to set one up. Make sure you have an up to date email so you can validate your email and account.
Hubpages has now added the Hubpage Ad Program where you can also earn money from them for views to your articles. This is a new feature for the site and it has been a great addition. It shows how much that the Hubpage staff cares for their writers. Compared to any other site online, they are far above any other management team.
EBAY AND AMAZON
Hubpages also gives you the option to earn money from affiliate programs such as Ebay and Amazon. You will need an account set up for both Ebay and Amazon. Once you set up the account, you will be able to list speciic items in your hubs. Amazon will give you a percentage of everything you sell. You will then sign up through their affiliate program and the two accounts will be linked.
Basically, all you have to do is go to your account page and click "Earnings" on the account page. You will then see a box appear in the center of the page. This is everything that you have access too. Here, you can sign up for AdSense, Amazon, Ebay, Hubpages Ad program, and also Google Analytics. All you have to do is hit the configure button and Hubpages has detailed instructions to follow. As long as you follow them through, you should have no problem. When you are linked to another site, there will be more instructions to follow to properly set up your accounts. Once again, if you follow them, you will be just fine.
BEST ARTICLE FOUNDATION
Out of all the different writing sites online, Hubpages has one of the best settings for your article. They offer a variety of capsules to maximize your articles potential. This is very important because you want your article to be presentable. This also gives you the ability to create the best article you can. You can add up to 20 pictures per article. You have your Amazon capsule, Ebay capsule, link capsules, rss feed capsule, quiz capsule, video capsule, poll capsule, table capsule, code capsule, and the map capsule. With all these available resources, your article has no boundaries. You will also have a comment capsule at the end of every article. This is very beneficial because you can leave feedback on articles and your readers can comment on your hub also.
Hubpages gives you the perfect foundation to maximize your article. You won't find that at many other sites. At Hubpages, they stress the importance of original content. It is very important. They want to provide their readers the best available content online. Due to this fact, they are ranked much higher in the search engine then most writing sites. See, it helps us all. This gives your article a better chance of finding a reader looking for an article similar to yours. As most of us already know, search engine position is a key opponent to an articles success. I don't believe many of us go to the 8th or 9th page on an engine search. Another reason is they do not want anything that is copied on the site. It will not be accepted. You will need to make sure you read the terms and rules before you begin writing. Just keep it original.
BEST COMMUNITY AND FORUMS
This is my favorite part about Hubpages. It is the people that write and read here daily. If I can promise you one thing, you will find many great people here from writers to poets, to moms and dads. You will meet people from all around the world. When you are new here, don't worry. They will eventually find you and they will help you along. Out of any site that I have been on, nobody's community compares to Hubpages. Nobody! The people here really care about you.
