    Squidoo, Bubblews, or Hubpages?

  2. Bob Bamberg profile image96
    Bob Bambergposted 4 years ago

    I've been on HubPages for over 17 months and just got my first payout (well, it will be in my bank account in 3-4 business days) of $51.26.  I've been on Bubblews for almost 4 months and have been paid over $78.00.

    I'm not tech savvy enough to drive people to my hubs, so, although I like the format very much, I see very little activity here.  On Bubblews, there's a "social networking" component that drives your income.  You interact with other bubblers, and that helps produce income.

    Bubblews allows, in fact encourages, shorter articles.  They can be meaty or superficial and you'll still get some activity.  I like the creative component of HubPages that allows for pictures, sidebars, polls, etc., and which is lacking on Bubblews, but I get a lot more activity and income there. 

    Plus, I've had fun writing some goofy stuff.  My hubs are all fairly meaty, but my bubbles are a combination of meat and appetizers.  I haven't written a new hub since I joined Bubblews, but that's not to say I won't in the future.

      Did some work on Bubblews tonight. I think I like it for writing short things. I feel like it is to be somewhat  like Facebook as a social site
      but members get to share the revenue.

    I can't really answer this question. I did join Bubblews but the site kept freezing on me so I haven't gone back although I may give it another try. I like Hubpages and my hubs are starting to grow traffic slowly and I can see the potential for making money on Hubpages. I also like the ease that I can add photos, videos and other things to make my hub look professional.

    I am wondering if you have any experience with Squidoo is why I answered the question.

      I'm on squidoo for a while, they take a lot of time to payout. I only did two articles at first, made $4.91 off of them.  Here is an example of one of my first articles:
