    Sure. It depends on what you want. Wordpress has a blogging system you can use free or monetize. There's also There are others as well. Some good searches will find all manner of site.

    So my question is, what are you looking for?

    Many. Off the top of my head, Squidoo, Infobarrel and Wizzley are some of the well known ones.

    There's also Triond, the only one apart from hubpages I've given a try. I wrote a hub  about the pros and cons of Triond, which you can read at … ith-Triond

    Weebly allows adsense posting and you get 50% of the impressions.  Squidoo is very similar to hubpages.

    If you're looking for something very similar to HubPages then I'd suggest Your share of the income will increase as you write more articles. is probably HubPages biggest competition and I know people do really well on there. You can write there too and can use more affiliate links and outbound links than you can on HubPages. However, it does take a while to be paid, since they work on a tier system (kinda the equivalent of the HP Adprogram). The tier one payout for October (which will be paid out in December) was around $70 per tier 1 article.You can circumvent some of their affiliate codes and use your own to get more money though, which will be paid directly to you and not through squidoo.

    If is too overcrowded for your tastes or you really struggle with HTML or CSS then try the new kid on the block at You're first three articles will be in the Petting Zoo until you are assessed as following the rules. Then your articles will be added to the main stream of articles. Their payout model is similar to squidoo as they also have a tier system. However, instead of only a few people being able to get a tier payment, everyone gets a payment. The tiers are set in percentage increments, which mean as the number of articles on the site grows so will the number of people receiving a higher payout. Unlike squidoo where the tiers are fixed and less than 0.50% of lensmasters  get into tier 1 on squidoo. Just now the payments are pretty low, but the site is quickly growing. This could be what squidoo was like in the beginning. is another site you can use. I've never used this one so can't give you guidance for that one.

    If by an alternative to Hubpages you meant other writing sites where you could write and have the ability to make money, then my top four options (in no particular order) would be,, and Try them out and see which format or options you prefer.

      Great recommendation here. Squidoo is one of the sites that you can easily earn money. Get about 500 to 600 words article out and add your amazon and ebay modules plus few external links and you are in.

      This is a really interesting answer as I haven't tried any of these sites but they seem to be worth a look!

      what about the revenue or impressions share on each of these?

    ExpertsColumn is one that pays well. It is a sharing revenue site too. If your choice is to own your own blog site you can try Weebly or Blogger.

    There are many... Triond, Bukisa, Expertscolumn, Yahoo Voices, Redgage etc.etc

    However, in terms of how well they pay, I would certainly recommend that you either stick with HubPages, or try all of these sites to make a decent accumulative income.

    It would help to know what you're looking for - an alternative to what, exactly? Other sites that allow absolute self-publishing (in other words, no application or acceptance process required)? Other sites that pay ad revenue? Or allow ebay or amazon? That have an active writer community? Easier to use tools, or more flexibility in format?

    It's hard to make good recommendations without knowing what you want an alternative for - after all, the whole internet is an alternative. LOL

    If you mean revenue sharing sites there are lots. Despite the recent falls in traffic Hub Pages seems to be one of the best paying, though there may be other sites where the audience for your writing and the earnings are higher.

    Otherwise you just have to go the long way round, run your own blog or website, get an audience and attract advertisers or subscribers.

    Or go tp places like textbroker and write on commission.

    If you really want a good blog to use that allows you a lot of freedom, space, and all of the monetizing you can handle, sign up for blogger. It comes with gmail too. Google is amazing for all of that. You can tie EVERYTHING together. I suggest trying that. You can view one of mine at:

    Happy Hubbing!

    good question because I wanted to try another site to see if I make more money.Thanks for the question

    If you enjoy writing, are good at it, and don't mind not getting explicit credit, then you might try content writing sites, such as Textbroker. No ego strokes, but it pays upfront, and if you're at least Level 4 you'll make some nice additional income.

    As an alternative to Hub Pages, I have been using Triond. Triond gives you a payout from the site as well as from Google Adsense. However, the payout tends to be much lower than Hub Pages. 

    The benefit of using Triond as opposed to Hub Pages is you can write about a topic of your choosing and get it published quickly without a lot of scrutiny.  When I write for Hub Pages, I feel as if I must have all my "i's" dotted and my "t's crossed. To date,  I have about three times the number of articles on Triond -- than I have on Hub Pages -- simply due to the ease of getting my articles published quickly.

    Similar to Hub Pages, your articles earn money for you as long as they are published on Triond and get views. Even though I do not currently write for Hub Pages as often as I used to -- I continue to receive residual money from the articles I've already published -- which is a plus.

    If you choose to write for Triond, I recommend you also sign up for Redgage.  I republish all of my Triond and Hub Page articles on Redgage.  As a side note -- If you want to take a break from writing, photos tend to do well on Redgage.


    Another alternative to Hub Pages is Webanswers.  When you write for this site, you respond to questions -- similar to the answer section on Hub Pages.  The difference is if your answer is chosen or awarded, you receive money from  that particular question. 

    You can also ask questions on Webanswers.  Here's a question that I asked similar to yours about where to write online. ( Sorry -- Hub Pages did not allow link -- see what I mean about the ease in publishing what you write at other sites?).

    Write for Multiple Writing Sites

    If your goal is to make money writing online, your best bet is to write for many different writing websites (including Hub Pages) -- since the payout for writing sites tends to be very low. For example, I currently write for Hub Pages (Not as frequently as Triond), Triond, Webanswers,, InfoBarrel  and recently signed up for  Sponsored Reviews where you receive pay for reviewing or giving your opinions on products. Of these, Webanswers has the highest payout for me, with Hub Pages coming in second followed by Triond.

    As you can see, there are alternatives to Hub Pages, however, if you choose to select any, I recommend you keep your articles on Hub Pages so you can receive residual income even as you write for other sites.

    As for my eperince on hubpages ........ it has quite an excellent social community and most of the writers are quite good, forums are also very cooperative but the thing which peeves me is that you only get 60% of your impressions meaning for every $100 u earn hubpages earns $40 I could have purchased a top level domain in it
    suggest sites simmilar to HP but those who give better impression sharing
