Hub authors are putting all this original and in some cases unique content onto the site. Do we have any info on the longterm prospects for the content?
It's the old posterity question that concerns lots of us vain writers! If I kick the bucket, my personal websites will cease to be within a year or so when the hosting expires. But what is the hubpages' plan for permanence? Until now, I've never really questioned how the big content sites like Hub and Wiki plan for the future. Just interested, that's all.
It doesn't bother me yet, but someday I'll stop buying green bananas . . .
What's with the Green Bananas ?
Interesting point you raise - could we pass on our adsense earnings via a will?
Maybe in 200 years time your Adsense earnings might be sustaining a small island somewhere?
In my case, giving my distant descendants a coffee every 10 years!
My interest is just theoretical too, as my trafic & earnings here are pretty low, but it would be interesting to know what happens to a successful hubber's "hub-estate" post mortem.
Green bananas? not worth buying when you have a week to live
I've actually thought about the opposite - if the HubPages team decides to fold its tent and set off into the sunset, what will happen to all our work? Of course, I should have saved a backup copy of everything but...
So true. I try to save most of my work, but not all. Plus, it is a lot of work to simply format articles/hubs, even if the content is already there.
Green bananas...my husband likes them (weird- I think), so I probably would still buy them even if I only had a week to live.
However you look at it, it's an interesting topic. A site with as many inbound links as HP has would create internet chaos if it disappeared overnight.

Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my sources is: http://hubpages.com/hub/Hubbers-Reveal- … s-EarningsDoes this...

On browsing the forum, I have become aware that we can't earn on HubPages without AdSense. This is a grim realization for me.I have 29 featured hubs that are generally considered to be of reasonable quality. I applied for an AdSense account over a year ago, and since then I've had nothing. When I...

I am okay at writing and can go way more in depth then I have, however I am not sure it is necessary to have a good profitable hub. I only do things that are fun to me, but I was just wondering about a couple things.1.) I am suggesting links using the suggested links in hubpages, now I knows its...

I need advice. I have both the HP Ad Program and my own Google Adsense ads on my one Hub. I haven't earned a thing from the HP Ad Program, but I'm earning on Adsense daily. I'm wondering if I should get rid of the HP Ad Program ads completely so more Adsense ads will show. Is this a good plan? If...

I have one hub that gets great traffic, my best one by far, but doesn't make me much money really and would like advice on how to improve it. Its getting 15k views per month.There is really nothing that could be done to improve its search engine rankings as its at the top. At least for its...
