I have only been on hubpages 3 weeks but why aren't more poets featured on the Hub nuggets?
It seems like poets are discriminated against, Who makes these decisons on the hubpages?I haven't seen any yet on the newsletters.
I certainly couldn't say for sure, but I think that Hubpages is largely based on informational pieces. Though poetry is encouraged (and well loved!), it is hugely personal. I'm not certain if this really has any bearing on it, but it is a thought.
Hello cleaner3! One of the reasons that HubPages doesn't favor poetry is because of the main objective of HubPages as a whole. Don't get me wrong, many people are successful poets on HubPages (check out Vincent Moore: http://vincentmoore.hubpages.com/) but they also write other content besides poetry.
HubPages is not a blog or a poetry site. It is a content-based article writing site and strives to uphold their reputation of publishing quality informative articles that can compete for traffic on the web. As a private business, their interest is in making money and sharing some of the money with the authors on the site, and it is in their best interest to reward quality content.
In HubPages' own words: "Hubs are the topical articles that act as the building blocks of our community. Each Hub is a one-page topical resource created by a Hubber. Hubs are easy to make and can include anything from videos and maps to polls and quizzes." (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/what-is-hubpages-2)
If you would like to know more about the future of online publishing related to content you can follow this link: http://hubpages.com/t/2d4f47 HubPages is looking towards being the #1 site for quality content and a reputation for publishing in-depth evergreen articles that generate traffic and income. Poetry is a small part of the equation. I know because I have published some poetry myself and the last contest on HubPages was a poetry contest.
I hope this helps bring things into perspective!
