Writing & Earning Online: 10 Benefits of Joining Hubpages

Updated on September 15, 2011

I write for Hubpages and two other sites. Hubpages was launched in August 2006 and according to Quantast (media measurement company), HubPages has become one of the 50 most visited sites in America. Below are some benefits of writing on Hubpages.

.·'★ •:*♡:


a) Lots of Inspiration / Humour – From Religion, positive words to Inspiring Poems and people falling in love / finding love. Lots of funny articles too. An amazing Hubber of L♥ve is: Acaetnna -


b) New friends - You will meet some Hubbers that you will even keep in touch with, via email or interact with on Facebook or Twitter.


c) Knowledge - Learning new things or reading some amazing stuff. My favourite Hubber that has mind blowing Hubs is Prasetio. "Extra-ordinary!!" See photo below: An underwater bedroom – I found in one of his Hubs.

UnderWater Bedroom

d) Hubpages Ad Program – This is a program run by HP where you can earn from your publishing. You can choose to opt in. More details here:

e) Adsense Earnings – If you sign up to you will receive a percentage of earnings from Google for Ads placed on your pages, if readers click on them. You can also take advantage of Amazon.

f) Genuine feedback – Readers “Hubbers” take time to read your Hubs unlike some sites, where some people don't read it, but just write “nice share” at the end. God forbid, if you write that your pet dog is lost, in the comments box some people will still write:

“Nice share.”

g) Ask Questions – Post questions in Questions & Answers Section. If you are not sure about a particular issue or you could help someone else answer their question.

h) Interactive – Visit Forums. It's like a little community, where you can interact with many Hubbers. Be warned, it can be addictive. Forums is also a place you can ask for help / support.

i) Twitter Traffic – sometimes Hubpages Hottest will Retweet any Hubpage article you Tweet to thousands of people. This will increase your traffic. ** Traffic – Number of people who read your article.

j) A quality website - I know some people complain that they were flagged for duplicate content, but it’s part of how Hubpages is raising its standards and maintaining quality. There is a site I write for that some people copy word for word, other articles online and publish it as their own. I know because you can use Google tools to check if an article has been copied. (read link below). As for the "writers" who do this - My lips are sealed.


Ps: If you already write on Hubpages, please share what you benefit from the site, to give new Hubbers more of an idea. Thanks. ٩(•̮̮̃•̃)۶

      Hi, yes Twitter is a good help for more notice of my Hubs, by retweets. Pinterest is a great site as well, I click "Pin it" then my Hubs may be repinned up to 10 times or more; depending on the Pinit image of a hub. Voted up.

      "You" are one of the reasons I like HubPages. You and others who are encouraging, and always seem to be there when you need a helping hand, a smiling face or words of encouragement and enlightenment.

      The people are the best part of HubPages.

      I agree with all the benefits you have mentioned being in the hubpage community. It's a good source of knowledge and inspiration as well as a joy to meet with fellow hubbers. It also allows me to improve my writing skills. You are so right about prasetio30, have not met another hubber yet who comes up with the amazing topics he does - thanks for introducing me to acaetnna's hubs and very grateful to have met you on-line Lady_E - sharing writing tips on how to be successful - computer knowledge - ways to stay motivated and sharing your knowledge of England (and being passionate it) - learned a little England linqo and that I can write to The Queen!! Hope we will continue to be 'ace' and 'minted' hub-pals. Have a great day!!! v/r

      I agree with you on all the above. The main thing I like about Hubpages is that I can design the hub the way I like it--with videos, pictures or capsules. Rated up.
