I was one of the lensmasters at Squidoo and part of my attraction to Squidoo was the ability to donate my earnings to some charities of my choosing. Now that I have transitioned to being a hubber, I was wondering if Hubpages could implement the same process. It would make a great promotion item for Hubpages and perhaps attract more hubbers. It definitely will benefit charities with a new source of income. Thanks.
Because HubPages was started just after Squidoo began, they have been asked this question since the beginning of the company.
Their answer, for more than nine years, has been that you can donate your earnings wherever you want, but they are never going to build such a feature into the site.
Thanks for the info. Just offering some ideas to help. HubPages are loosing hubbers and traffic and ranking ever since the merge with Squidoo. If an idea has merit, why not pursue it? As I said, it can be used as a promotional ploy to attract new writers.
Do you mean, you can earn something worthy of donating to charities?
I don't know even if I can earn my first 100 dollars in 5 years.
Jack, HubPages was losing writers, traffic and ranking for three years before they decided to buy a chunk of their former largest rival, who was going out of business at the time.
Taking on that chunk of low-value content from Squidoo is what hurt HubPages, not that they were lacking an in-house donation management system.
If that's the case, why did Hubpages bought out Squidoo? I was under the impression they were consolidating to even out the competition. It sounds like Hubpages is in no better shape than Squidoo.

Over that time, I conscientiously stuck to all the rules and guidelines, and was rewarded by views gradually rising to around 350 per day with earnings around $25 per month. I...

I've just joined Squidoo and published my first "lens". My initial impressions of Squidoo are that it's less easy to use than HubPages (from the point of view of actually publishing something rather than just browsing as a reader), and is also slower. I do however like the...
