    What was it about Hubpages that made you join?

    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.

    A bit off topic.. but If I could dabble in some PHP, MySQL and Ajax coding here that would be so awesome. Or even just basic JavaScript with a simple PHP proxy. (probably never happen though for security reasons) sigh

    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.
