How does HubPages work anyway?
I just signed up for HubPages and am trying to figure out how it works. What's the best way to make money here? Can someone please explain it to me in a few short sentences without me having to wade through pages and pages of vague FAQ's?
Explore some of the other writers content to see what others are publishing. Write your own hubs, which should consist of quality content like interesting and informative text and pictures. Once you have several quality hubs, you can sign up for the advertising programs. Once approved for the advertising programs, ads will be placed in your articles and you will share the profits with Hubpages. Keep in mind you will need to generate a LOT of traffic to your articles to make any real money.
I try to follow the points set out here. http://longtimemother.hubpages.com/hub/ … d-approval
I have 65 hubs and I get a few hundred dollars each month. The key is learning about basic SEO (search engine optimisation) and SMO (social media optimisation) to bring your content traffic without work.
I have a few hubs on this topic you may want to read.

I know that many people don't like HP cracking down, but I personally am hoping that HubPages will continue to find new ways in 2012 to encourage the good writers on here and discourage the spammers and spinners - I really do think that it helps the site's reputation overall with Google and the...

I say thank you Panda for helping to restore quality content to search engine results. Hubpages definitely has gotten better-- the spam is gone and the cream is rising to the top. Also, I'm making more money than I ever have in the four years I've been on Hubpages so I'm a very happy...
