You could try, but it is pretty impossible to sell a hub because it is within your account. It si easier to sell entire accounts as they are transferable.
Thanks for your responses. The last few years I had very little time to update my lenses/hubpages. So, yes I want to sell my account. Is this the right place?
There is not specific place for that but here seems as good as anywhere.
I've absolutely no experience of this, but maybe you could try on Ebay in the category 'Websites and Businesses for Sale'.
Just to be clear - You obviously can't sell your Hubs or Hubpages account as they're not your property to begin with. You can, however, sell any content to which you hold the copyright. But you can't sell it anywhere on HP as that would be classed as spamming, much the same as selling a laptop, phone or whatever.
It's an interesting question, though. I guess valuing the content would be the most difficult. For example, you might sell me the content to a high-traffic hub. After the necessary unpublishing, de-indexing process and waiting, I start a new Hub and fill it with my newly purchased content and publish it as my Hub.
But it's a brand new hub and URL. It's not going to get the traffic yours used to get - maybe for years. And there's no guarantee it ever will. My hub won't have all the back links and authority or maturity that yours built up over the years. And any illegal copies that people may have made of your hub will outrank mine in the search results.
You can always just leave them here. They don't need much maintenance if you've little time here.
You can sell your account in that the name and SS# of the owner of the account can be changed to that of the new owner, and Hubpages has no history of objecting to that during the previous times it was discussed.
As with most online assets the value tends to be based on annual income. In a stable environment you might pay 5-10x annual income, but in the current context I would expect no more than 2x annual income as that income is declining and might flatline, especially if the buyer does not do what is necessary to keep the content featured.

In reading the forum post from two years ago when all Hub URLs were changed to Subdomains, many people reported that copied Hubs began to outrank theirs when the change was made. I think this might happen again and we have five forum threads going right now about copied content. Be sure to do...

Can't find the answer in the help section. The help section states that we retain ownership of the content we publish on hubpages - does this extend to the right to sell our account to another person? Anyone's help appreciated...

This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a hub has been clearly copied (for example from a PDF file that the plagiarism...

Sorry for the inconvenience- but that's what I just saw. HubPages staff, Jason Menayan, who runs another account called 'livelonger', just posted here in the link below, to save the Hubs from sinking??? Hah!I quote forum rules- "Multiple Accounts: While we don't prohibit having more than one...

I see that the general forum topics revolve around Hubs being copied, Hubpages not doing well, views going down, no future for hubpages, etc. etc. So the general unhappiness continues.. I had taken a break for about a month to write on other sites and of course, earn from it, but have returned with...

If you report or flag a hub or question, is it anonymous, or does the person know who did the reporting or flagging?It would be a shame to have a retribution war started....
