It was the sense of community that I felt from reading the comments on the hubs I read. I wanted to belong.
Two main reason:
1) They share revenue with their members
2) Major search engine authority which I can manipulate every which way to Sunday and back to rank quicker, more easily for more competitive keywords.
Now that I've been here a minute or two I would add the community aspect was the icing on the cake.
I like the revenue sharing idea, and also that it is so easy to use to add amazon, ebay and videos. It is very user friendly. I also enjoy the community aspect and find the other hubbers extremely helpful.
Wanted a site to express opinion, share ideas, and open discussion. I have tried other blog sites but this seems to be the simplest and most put-together site I have found to date.
I joined here because of revenue sharing... also this site is simple to use.
When I first saw HubPages after following a link from another site, I was attracted to its general look. I joined HP because I saw that this is a free site where I can write whatever I want, whenever I want. Plus, I liked the hubs that I first read here.
I didn't find out about the earnings and the revenue - sharing and the forums and the other things after I've been here for a few days already! Until now, the chance to write for free and having a great platform to boot are still the main reasons why I keep writing in HP.

Do any hubbers spend 40 hours a week (or more) writing and researching hubs? Does the effort pay off if the site is treated like a regular job?

I'm very timid when it comes to change if the change is not one of my own choosing, even if it is good change. Moving to HubPages was an upsetting experience for me, mainly because I felt the place we moved from...

I'd be interested to know what people's views are about Hubpages. There seems to be rather a lot of 'rules' and at first it reminded me bit of some sort of strict 'school'. Personally, I'd like a bit...

I have been writing at Howtodothings.com which, like Hubpages, shares 50% adsense ad revenue. This site has now stopped sharing this revenue with its members. I believe there is no official announcement to it....
