    This is new to me! This site will write and promote an article for Hubpages or Squidoo for $35:

      Amazing. I have a hub that has been published for six months - it has garnered less than 200 views and has made me no money whatsoever.

      I wonder how I'd feel if I spent $35 to get it.

      Maybe I should write to them and apply for a job.
      I bet their only takers would be those new to online writing.

    I'm not saying that's the worst investment you could make. But it is in my top five.

      It's in my top four.

    *doh* Maybe that's what I've been doing wrong -- not hiring the right expert to write my hubs for me!
    I wonder how long it would take to reach breakeven on one article?
    lol
    This is a real find. I wonder when it will make it into the HP learning center? lol lol

      I think I'll apply for a writing job with them - or maybe I should start my own similar service. Whatcha think, MM? Wanna be my business partner?

    Of course, an ordinary hubber is unlikely to get any return on investment.

    However, if a company used this to get subtle mention of themselves without breaking any over-promotional rules, it would be a cheap price to pay for advertising.

      It would be a waste of money, because unless it hit a high search/low competition keyword, it is likely to become idled very quickly.

        I agree with you about this IzzyM.

    Lame.
    Anybody dumb enough to fall for that "service" deserves to be ripped off.

    Don't even bother with it, unless you feel charitable enough to donate some money to others.

    Whether or not it is "worth it", to me, would be dependent on the guidance and instruction given. With poor instruction, you might as well flush this money down the drain. With proper instruction, this could be very worth it.

    Hmm.  A 400 word spun hub with 5000 backlinks placed overnight by 'bot.  Wonderful opportunity for only $35, yes?

    I don't see much difference in this versus the money paid to the mentees in the AP program for hubs which may be idled shortly.  Just those on HP get less money for their "quality" hubs.

      Wow! You have a real pic now! I always wondered what you looked like.
      Is the hat covering up the horns? lol

        Not yet, but if this ridiculous idle program isn't booted soon they will certainly be useful to gore a few folks with.  yikes

    Hey I'll do it for $15 bucks!

    I think I'll stick to writing my own hubs! But hey I wish them all the best of luck (I got a feeling they are going to need it) big_smile

    This give me an idea. I can take my idle hubs, unpublished them and then sell them to someone for $35 so that they can publish them on Hubpages! I think I just might be on to something.

    Oh wow, I could be making a fortune! yikes

    (Nah, I prefer to write for myself as it is, although $35 is pretty ridiculous for an article/hub that will probably never break even unless you happen to score on a subject matter in a hot niche).

    It is a rip off. I'd like to offer my services for only $10. Well worth the price.

    1. wilderness profile image98
      wildernessposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      Sold!  I do require 1500+ words, 10 pics and a unique video, along with the use of 3 other capsules and a guarantee of 100 views per day within a month.

      When can you start?

        I'll start on the video now... it should guarantee quite a few hits. wink

          Great!  Just, please, no Indian Auntie flicks.  I don't like them.  lol

            Considering I don't know what that is, I think you're safe.

    Yeah, seems like it would take a while before you made your money back.
