I was WONDERING IF ANYBODY HAS ADDED A PAYPAL lINK TO there Hub? Or if it could be done.
Well, not to get donations. But I bake cookies and sell them,since I have written 2 articles on the hubs. I was thinking maybe someone acctually would want to buy some cookies. It would be convenient for them. Just a thought!
I'm with Darkside - why? PayPal is an online bank not a source of revenue.
you can put a web link to paypal with a description on your profile page also,
if anyone read your hub & he/she want to donate you something via paypal,
he/she will come on your profile page to read more about you & will donate from there.
ROFL! Well, I don't see why someone would want to donate money to you for no good reason, but if anyone would like to, just contact me for my PayPal email
Sorry, but adding a PayPal link to a hub so that readers can donate money to you seems a little tacky.
I guess if there were a decent reason, as in the case the bard mentioned, helping fund an independent album or something like that, but hard to say if every hubber that did that would be truthful. Asking for money just to get money seems shady and well...tacky.
I hear you, and I agree with everything you've said.
I was thinking about doing this, many bloggers do something similar by adding PayPal content right into their blog posts, but the HubPages rules make it pretty clear that your content shouldn't be commercial or promotional. As for donations, using the PayPal e-mail code link on your Profile would make sense, it's something Hub Pages may even offer as a standard feature, but there is no telling for sure.
All it needs is for some scammer to rip people off here at Hubpages and it would put the whole site under a cloud...

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

It is important to actually read the hub you are commenting on. It seems that every time I publish a hub I get at least one comment saying something that proves they didn't read the hub. In the future I will be deleting these comments even though they are well intentioned. It will better for your...

My new experiment:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/8289is looking better every day, and in fact I am trying to figure out ways to help as many Huber’s as possible in this path so I decided I'm going to develop my site in a way that gives authors some link juice (and this site will get massive...

I have to issue a grovelling apology here, I stuffed up mightily. I posted an explanation of how to claim authorship with Google, and made one small but extremely important mistake. For those who followed the original advice, my sincere apologies. You need to edit your profile and...

As many of you know, Google recently introduced a feature to identify authors around the web. To be recognized as an author, you need to create a Google profile and add links to your profiles on the websites and blogs where you write (which includes your HubPages sub-domain).However there is...
