Is HubPages Interested in Promoting Personal Interest Info or Just Something That Sells?
It seems to me that HP just wants to put out anything that hits current selling trends. I understand that they want to hit current trends in order to up the HP traffic but they encourage us to write about whatever we want. This should be a amended to 'write about what you like if it sells', no? What is your take on HP practices
I think HP does not manipulate any thing and whatever traffic comes it is organic traffic. No doubt latest trends are trendy but old also remains gold with the only exception that whatever glitters may not be gold. By and large HP practices are based on personal interest of the hubbers.
Ive been contributing to Hubages for four years now and have well over 300 Hubs posted. I've also asked many questions and answered even more. At no time has Hub Pages not posted what I have written. From this I deduce that Hubpages are not simply 'putting out' Hubs that are likely to sell and not placing topics unlikely to gather a large following. They're after quality content and volumes of it. I certainly see nothing underhanded in the way they run this site.
One way to view HP while not necessarily being the proper way or the only way is it is a business enterprise providing a 'mixed market' economy and it, too, exists within a 'mixed market' economy within 'Google,' which exists in a 'mixed market' economy upon the internet for the purpose of conducting commerce.
Personally, I do think they play favoritism with their resources any more than each individual author/writer does with their resources. What is read (sells) and is not determined by HP. It is determined by readership, popularity, and social trends upon the internet ( the whole) composed of countless web browsers. As mentioned HP lends being a member primarily of Google with associations with other browsers (the parts). That is possibly its economic structure.
We borrow (knowledge & experience) from HP and it is free of interest (the only cost is effort by doing, learning, and seeking help with those varying unregulated costs). We have the opportunity to invest, seek a gain (articles read), maintain capital (present articles and their positioning) in the varying market structures - community (followers, following, others), regions - specific category and sub-categories, state - HP, nation - Google, and the world - other browsers upon the internet.
HP provides a platform for launching a vehicle. It does inspect each vehicle. It provides a map and offers methods of guiding the vehicle. Vehicles are recognized based on criteria while being random. The builder and driver of each vehicle is independent, autonomous, and has liberty.

So I've worked on my novel for the past 3 years, finally buckled down and finished it this year. Just recently published it on Amazon Kindle, and I'm so very excited about it. The thing is, I don't know how to promote myself in the best way. And I don't have a ton of $$$ to spend on website design...

Are HP merely just creating new niche sites and hoping Google will pick them up? or are they actively promoting the sites in the wider world of the niche the site is based on?

I've been on HubPages now for about 10 months and it took that long to generate 100.00, but since I hit my 100th hub or so my monthly revenue has gone up about 30.00 a month and I'm starting to see some decent change rolling in now.. seems a snowball effect happens when you get enough chump change...
