Our Wikipedia entry:
is a bit overdue for an update.
Due to Wikipedia's rules, we are not allowed as HubPages employees to make any changes to the site. However, HubPages community members are free to do so.
Are there any volunteers that would like to help update it? Any established editors/contributors on Wikipedia would be best, since their changes would likely be trusted. Otherwise, the page is free to be changed by anyone, provided that it avoids promotional language (strongly discouraged, and could jeopardize the page) and conforms with the rules of the site in terms of attributing sources with retrieval dates, etc.
If so, here are some data points that you can use to update it:
- According to Quantcast, HubPages gets about 22.8 million monthly visits and 88.1 million page views
- over 600,000 Hubs are currently published on the site
- there are 9 staff members (not 7)
- Paul Deeds is the Founder and General Manager of HubPages
- Users can also monetize their content using Kontera, in addition to AdSense, Amazon and eBay
- There are additional features we've added, like Polls, Quizzes, and Questions and Answers
- We have two programs that help and encourage writers identify and build on topics in the form of Hubs: HubMob and the 30 Day Challenge
Thank you, Cosette!
If you have any questions about making edits in a Wiki, please let us know here. They have their own markup language, as well as requirements when it comes to sourcing data, that must be complied with.
I have a login for Wikipedia but haven't done any editing for ages - so long that I've forgotten my password! Assuming I'm still a member, I'd be happy to do the editing for you.
-same here, if i can figure out my log in info,but thats a big IF, ill make updates based on your data points.
Im not an established wikieditor, but my additions seem to have stuck over the years

Marisa & Sunforged:
Thank you. If you already have an active account and you're familiar enough with Wiki's formatting and rules, then we would very much appreciate your efforts.
Ryan could technically do it, but it's his first week at his new job, so we figure he probably has his hands full.
Success! Found my password, all fine, done some editing already but I'm woefully out of practice - forgotten how to add a new heading!
A belated thank you!
Your efforts are very much appreciated.
