    Do you think it looks bad on Hubpages that they do like Examiner and place ads on job boards?...

    They up and tell you on here this is not meant as a primary source of income and that most people do not make that much so why are they clogging up boards where people are seriously looking for work?

    Well as long as it does not interfere with me been able to write my content freely, and enjoy all the benefits that I currently do, I guess it is not a bad thing. It they start doing things that  they notice will bring a difference towards their image, they will surely change.  They are really good people, the ones running HubPages.

    I haven't used examiner so I can't speak for that site, but I do think hubpages is something people should know about. While it is rarely a primary source of income, I feel like it could help out a lot of lower income families with some extra cash each month. Having said that, I don't think it should be posted on job boards, at least, not separately. I remember seeing examiner post on a board and they had like 12 different jobs listed, but it was all the exact same thing. Just list it once.

    I think the issue is that nobody is going to jump into article marketing and just start making a living wage any time soon. I think it's very possible to make good money with this gig, but  it's going to take a long while to learn the game, and produce enough good articles to generate that income.

    So in other words. . . .it's something that can do well for anyone; but it would have to be like a side project, and a long range project.  This isn't something that is going to feed you today like day labour.
