    What are the benefits of contributing time and energy to writing articles here over other similar sites, if any?

      I've only used one other site similar to HubPages- Squidoo- and I prefer HP over Squidoo. Both sites have their benefits, but I just prefer HP and their simplicity of design and higher traffic. I have some similar hubs and lenses, but I seem to get more traffic to HP hubs rather than Squidoo lenses.

        I have one Squidoo Lens which I put a lot of work into but only am getting about 20 hits a week, but here at HP I was surprised to find that you can easily get that much in a day.

          One of my Hubs got a rush of search engine traffic yesterday - over 200 hits. And it's an obscure topic, too - the Alice Project.

          http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Alice-Proje … h-The-Sims

          Mind you, that video of Randy Pauch's last lecture has had millions of views on YouTube, but the keywords that brought people to the page weren't people looking for the video. They were looking for the Alice Project.

          So, yes, large chunks of traffic which can be directly attributed to being on the HubPages domain rather than some obscure blog somewhere.

    I'll tell you what my limited experience over here at the Hub has been like and why I enjoy being here versus somewhere else:
    I have also written over at Helium, but I like the format over here at the Hub better, I will probably go over there to maybe write for the marketplace occasionally, but I enjoy writing here because of the freedom, the support, the genuinely nice hubbers, the forums, and I love the way the capsules are set up. It's easy for me to work on my articles, play with them, change them and add my affiliate capsules.
    The Hub has really got my creative juices going again, and that's exactly what I needed. So far I'm making a little bit of money but I know in time as I learn about how to market my work, link, backlink, etc,- I know that more money will come in time. It's just a matter of learning, earning and building as I go.

    Thank you for your comment. I have been getting the same feeling about HP.  The nice hubbers, the forums, and the way the capsules are set up. I have been learning that the right attitude, patience in growing and perseverance are some of the important keys to financial success.

    HP is far better than other such sites . You can not deny the fact that your published hubs get more exposure through HP and your hubs get indexed by search engines very quickly . So this is an added advantage wink

      I read your response and decided to check Google and my latest hub which I only published yesterday, is already the third entry on the first page of Google. That is amazing.

    Hubpages allows us to be more creative in putting together a whole magazine-like article.  You can't put pictures on Helium articles.  Or at least you couldn't when I was there.

    In my opinion, there is a stronger sense of community here, too.

      Yes that's one of the biggest things I enjoy here is having control of my page to add elements to add to the Hub- being able to customize it is huge for me, because I love graphics and I love marketing so it's a no brainer to love making a hub. You can't do that at Helium. Boring!

      Yes, being able to write magazine-like articles is great. I also like being able to write longer articles knowing that people will still read them. Unlike Ezine Articles where you begin to lose the  reader's attention if the article is over 750 words.
