This hilarious article said Medium was a better site to write for because you have to write hundreds of articles to reach payout. This is hilarious, because I've seen people with less than 50 articles with millions of views. It all depends on what you're writing about.
Subscription services are also not as reliable as everyone thinks, look what's happening with Netflix with all the big companies taking back their stuff, people will unsub Netflix and sub somewhere else.
You don't necessarily have to write hundreds of articles, it all depends on traffic, this person wants to do next to no work and rake in the money, this article is a joke:

Making money without having to work, the holy grail.
Interesting rant. I'm not familiar with Medium but this person certainly sounds happier there. They make a few legit points about HP but I rolled my eyes at a few bits, too.
What "exploitation?" Nobody's holding a gun to anyone's head, making them write "hundreds" of articles. There are peeps here (sadly, I'm not one of them) who are making regular bank with only a few dozen pieces.
It would be swell if all you had to do to succeed here was post your stuff and then wait for the internet to beat a path to your door. Unfortunately not all of us have ninja level SEO skills to make that happen.
In all my time as an "online writer" I've always kept my monetary expectations low. Therefore I'm rarely disappointed. It took a while and a lot of silly/stupid mistakes but I've finally reached a point here where writing heavy metal gibberish gets me some beer and pizza money every other month or so. I'm personally fine with that, but I know there are a lot of other folks who wouldn't be.
I can sympathize with this bit cuz I'm in the same boat -- I mainly review music and/or movies. However, in recent months I have all but given up posting movie reviews on HP, because after they get moved to ReelRundown get no traffic juice whatsoever. My music stuff performs better, so that's where I've been concentrating my energies.
Can't argue with this. That new scrolling strip of "related hubs" in particular is irritating as hell.
I have never encountered this phenomenon in the 8 years I've been posting here. Anyone else?
Did this person miss the memo that said you can turn the Q&A feature off entirely? I got rid of that s**t within the first week.
I could go on but the dog is whining at the door for his morning constitutional. Duty calls....

Has anyone tried 30 days 30 articles kind of a challenge? And what effects has it shown to your analytics in terms of your traffics, ads and revenue.

Just curious about Medium. Anyone writing there and what's your experience versus here at Hubpages as far as traffic, editing staff, professionalism, average payouts, collective atmosphere. Do you feel valued as a contributor? Are you satisfied one way or another?? ... your...

There's a significant percentage of Hubbers for whom HubPages is a writers' community first and foremost, and the loss of comments has shattered that community. While Samantha has said comments are "on the list" to be reinstated, realistically it's likely to be months (due to the upcoming...

In my first month on Medium, I have earned more than I have earned at Hubpages in the same period. Of course, my earnings at hubpages are now less than 10% of what they were a year or more ago. I'm not sure what is happening at hubpages, but its ranking on the web has fallen drastically. Put that...
