What are the advantages to using Hubpages over a personal blog for which you own the domain?
I've been thinking about it and I'd just like to hear some pros and cons either way. It's tempting to start my own site and keep 100% of the ad impressions. However, I know that Hubpages gets your pages ranked in search engines much faster. Thoughts?
Getting traffic to your blog is the hardest part. HubPages already gets a lot of traffic. Also, like you said HubPages already gets fast and good page rank.
You can always do both. Use HubPages to get links to your Blog until you gain enough traffic on your own.
I also found that a lot of my online content had been plagarized, but there is not much I can do about it. I now stick with sites like Hub Pages, who take care of the legal aspects and protecting my work for me (and for them).
You have new community and friend. HUbpages also optimize your ads revenue with Yield Building. Some new blogger like us are difficult to do that. Off course, you can build a blog beside hubpages.
Hubpages are already seo optimized and also have a good pagerank hence it becomes easier for one to write articles and get them on 1st page of google search while it takes lots of time in self owned blogs.

People usually have a zero-sum mentality about this especially since there's a 60/40 cute between you and Hubpages. Personally I found that Hubpages is so powerful when it comes to page ranking. Plus you don't have to worry about developing the site or paying for a host. At the same time, the SEO specialists over at Hubpages really make sure that your articles are optimized and get a lot of traffi (just take 'title tuner' for instance).
I see a lot of advantages. I personally wrote about it in my 'beating the search engine' series. Check it out here if you want hehe:

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

I have a personal blog, and I was wondering if it's a good idea to write a post where I add reference links to my hubpages articles? Is it a good SEO practice or a bad idea? thanks

I am still pretty new to online writing so can someone explain why it is better to post articles on hubpages rather than your own blog? it cost nothing to make a blog, you can lay it out like a webpage, and keep all the ad revenue.
