This was discussed a while back but you can get free premium access to Encyclopedia Britannica online if you regularly write on the Internet. You can apply here. I've been using it for 2 years now. I applied just using my HubPages profile URL.
I tried to register but it didn't recognize my url.
You ROCK! Thx for making this resource known. Excellent... I must be a really, really big GEEK 'cos this is a bonus in my day...
oooooooo boooooooks lol
Thank you, UW! I've applied now as well. I hope they will approve me.
I had no trouble, but this year I did put my Suite101 profile url.
Maybe just try registering with the hubpages.com URL and putting a link to your profile in the comments?
What is the benefit of having a subscription to the site? Is it just a research resource, or does it somehow provide an SEO benefit?
Many people may not realize that if they have a library card for their local library, you can almost always access your district's library online -- and thereby have access to nearly the entire digital library from home.
I have just registered though would like to know how much time does it take for them to reply. They say 4 business day??
I registered using my hp profile immediately after I saw this thread. It took them about 9 hours to get back to me with the coupon code to complete my registration.
If you get an email with a link that doesn't work, instead of clicking the link try typing the url manually.
Thank you, UW.
Thanks for sharing this, UW. I signed up! I plan on doing a lot of informational hubs this summer, so this service would be really useful.
HOW COOL IS THAT!
have a date with Encyclo and Brit-ya I know, gotta catch up so 2 tonight.
Thanks for the info
Thanks for sharing that , UW - That is great.
I have signed up and hope that they accept - it is a very useful resource for general, background research
Thank you UninvitedWriter! So very sweet of you to share this resource. I have signed up, and they reply within 4 working days so I await the email.
I used to have a set, but they got old and we disposed of them through a charity.
I am excited at the very thought of having access to them now.
The reality is -- it is the very old encyclopedias that have comprehensive history and information unedited by current politics. Anyone truly interested in real history and knowledge should have several sets from different eras. I do. They are quite bulky and quite enlightening. Never let a really good set of 'elderly' encyclopedias leave you, you'll never find the same depth of information again.
I used to have a set of the old Encyclopedia Britannica, but I threw them away because my wife already knew everything anyway!
This is a great resource opportunity!
Thanks UW, you are always a great wealth of information! I love the encyclopedia - yeah, people think I'm weird.
Thank you so much UW. I got accepted and it is wonderful!!
Thanks! I submitted my application, with my HP profile address, without a hitch.
I got my approval email w/ my code and instructions 3 hrs ago.
Thank you UW. I had to submit a single hub for the URL, then added I published on hubpages and linked to my profile page, in the comments section. Not sure that last link was necessary, but just received me e-mail approval.
UW - neat (and thanks). I know I'm a fan of "Britannica - the books".
About 10 hours later and I'm approved. I did use my profile URL with no problems
UW, I just got the e.mail that my account was approved. The links didn't work in the e.mail, so I copied and pasted the URL - and that worked (as others apparently did).
Neat! Thanks again. (I just filled out the application last night, so it was quick hearing back.)

Hi, I have been posting a series of hubs on Dog Care and Adoption topics. All my hubs are original and I type each character in it. I also got a decent number of Hubs(21) to begin with all with good content. But google has twice turned down my request for adsense Account. It says-" Thank you...

When I signed up for HubPages I was asked for my website. Not knowing anything about websites, I ended up writing in the URL for my first hub. Recently I read something that seemed to suggest that that was a mistake, and I should have used the URL for my Profile page. Am I making any sense? If so,...

Do you know who you signed up under, if anyone, when you first joined Hubpages?Since people can earn money by referrals, as a point of interest, is there a way to find out who we signed up under? If you know the person, have they assisted you in any way?
