I am pretty much sure that someone already mentioned it here, but want to highlight it again: that would be so cool if we could transfer hubs as we can transfer squidoo lenses. I know it's a big deal to add this feature to the site, but I hope it 's on the "to do" list...
Actually I kinda think it's cool that people can't sell Hubs. (which is really what you seem to be implying)
People sell their blogs and web sites and other "mini" sites as well and there is nothing wrong with selling hubs if you provide quality and interesting content. I would be happy to create and transfer a few hubs to people who were helping me with promoting my business and it would be a simple "thank you" from me. And you are wrong that people don't sell hubs, they do. But since there is no "transfer" feature, they open a new account, create a hub and never come back. I never opened any accounts (besides mine) and never spam hubpages.
We are aware that hubs have almost certainly been created by contract, and that accounts have probably been sold, but it's not something we want to encourage. If you look at the list of top Hubbers, they are by and large all real people that participate in the community and stand behind the hubs that they create.
I sell hubs - that is I write them and post them for money. I sell my clients the service of producing for them a hub page in my hubpages account. That way I get to keep the score and the amazon ebay and adsense income and they get the links and/or promotional message they want.
Works for me.
I'm a real person and wouldn't write about anything I wouldn't stand behind quality wise - and if they want a dubious hub they can have one but in THEIR account thanks!
So I'll write a hub for someone else's account for sure, but I prefer not to as I like the small income from the ones in my own name. I tend to point out to clients that my hubs in my name will get far better exposure than in their name as the profile score and hub score and fanbase is in their favour when they use my account.
I wouldn't sell one once written and pass it on - sounds too much like hard work! I hadn't even thought about it!
Hitting self over head (whats the smiley for that?) - like duh I never thought of that, I can be so bloody thick some days!
Mail me if you want, Lis - I do it all the time. If someone asks about articles for marketing I casually ask "what about hubpages, would you like me to post one of them on there for you?" and more people are nibbling all the time.
If they have their own account that's fine, but most people are very happy for me to use mine, hence the separation (I'm not my REALLY a multiple perosnality) obviously self-designed hubs that I find rewarding and fascinating and an outlet eg Dr Who, guitars, guitarists, pubic hair, local what's on page etc etc - and there are pages for my own ends such as the dogs pages, but the odd and disparate assortment of "other pages" that may seem a bit random at times will come from either client requests or HUBMOB (of course!)

For the second time in less than a week, I just spent time opening "questions" that aren't questions, but nonsensical "garbage"--bits of a paragraph copies from somewhere and dumped into HP. In each case, I flagged them for HP, and they will likely disappear soon. But they harm...

Is it possible to sell or transfer your hubs to another member on hubpages?Is it allowed by Hubpages? Should one be able to sell their hubs to another user if they no longer want to maintain a profile on hubpages?

Periodically I notice a downturn in the traffic to one or more hubs, which leads me to Google the beginning or sections of it/them in search of content theft. Now HP is helping with this chore by notifying us of possible content theft and listing the sites where it's being used. There's even a...

What would be a cool feature to add on HubPages?I wish there was a button for "favoring" some hubs so you can easily find them later.

About once a week I peruse my hubs to check on traffic, comments, and just generally see how things are going. One of my hubs, "What Are The Benefits of Eating Bananas," had the copyright symbol next to it. I know from past experience that this means hubpages has found my content...

I'm not knocking anybody (or maybe I am) but I have seen several "Hubs" that transferred from Squidoo that are composed of nothing more than very thin content and a whole bunch of merchandising links (and even one lady who pimped her own Etsy page multiple times in her "Hub")....
