Other Sites Like Hubpages?

    Hi. I just starting using hubpages last night and I LOVE it. I've got so much unpublished, socio-political commentary that I wrote while getting my doctorate and I've finally found something I can do with it.

    I'm wondering if there might be some other sites like Hubages that would allow me to submit content as well. I'm familiar with article directories, but I'd prefer something with higher quality and  a better community...Like HubPages smile

    Thanks ahead of time!

    Why? hmm
    You have plenty of time to set backlinks in place.

    Shouldn't you clean up your Bio and Avatar BEFORE you spread your Blank First impression all over the net?

    Build your reputation first and don't consider diluting it at first!

    Sorry If What I'm Saying Offends you - But It's Honest and if I landed on your page I would certainly not bother seeking inspiration there? Would You?

    Take Pride in what you do.... it could be me you loose your readers to big_smile

    Oh Yeah.... Welcome to HP btw. smile

    I agree with Pearldiver. Also, your hubs are lacking in content and I immediately click out before reading. You need to break your content into blocks. Add images, videos and other resources to back up your content.

    It also looks as if your hubs are rather short. In most cases, hubs should be between 800-1200 words. Yours seem under the minimum, which explains your poor hubscore.

    Don't just post old work and call it done. Work on it. T me it looks as if you just threw your work up on hubpages and expect to gain results. It doesn't work this way. Be a part of the community, add more to your hubs, make them fun and entertaining.

      I disagree that all hubs should be that long.  Not every topic warrants that many words!  Saying that however, my articles tend to come out on the 800 word end and I have many over 1000 words. 

      Mainly my writing is on InfoBarrel and I'm slowly building a library here and trying to use all different sorts of page layouts to find what looks and works the best.

    While it is important to get your bio set up ow you want, it is far from mandatory.

    I operate the this is freelance article directory, you have to show that you are a decent writer on that site before you are accepted, that way the overall quality remains high.

      Is your site only for backlinks or do you encourage original stand-alone articles? For example at She Told Me, you have to link to something. But at Snipsly you can write for adsense without linking to anything else.

    Be careful with the sites that share adsense impressions or any types of affiliate impressions with you. So far very few sites like hubpages are genuine. In my personal tests few sites found to be running suspicious algorithm. Don't waste time with sites like best-reviwer, shetoldme, seekyt,yousaytoo because they have some suspicious ways to get more impression for their adsense ID's. For more information check this thread.

    In short, you'll not get 50%/65% or 80% revenue sharing as promised from these sites.

      I agree, I took my AdSense off of She Told Me when I was getting huge CTRs on 1 or 2 hits. I even earned money one day with no clicks or hits.

      Bukisa is now going to AdSense earnings.

        What exactly did that mean that you earned money with no clicks or hits?  Do you mean by that that it was an indication to you that the site was not on the up-and-up?

          Uninvited Writerposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          I don't know but I was not willing to take chances. I haven't visited the site for months and was earning money. It was only cents but I found it strange.

          1. jpwriter profile image77
            jpwriterposted 7 years agoin reply to this

            Sometimes you can earn without an actual click.  I have that happen often, usually pennies or A penny.  It has something to do with the CPM. 

            Not every business that uses Adsense opts to do strictly Pay Per Click (PPC).  Some of them will pay once the ad has been shown a certain number of times and it's this that ends up shooting us some pennies. 

            What you said "I took my AdSense off of She Told Me when I was getting huge CTRs on 1 or 2 hits." doesn't make sense though.  The CTR is the click through rate, a number that shows how the ads are doing.  Example if you had 10 total views and 1 ad click then your CTR is 10%.  That's great!  I've hit 10% before on some sites on super lucky days.  Getting a high CTR just means your ads got lucky that day.

            Did you mean to say huge CPC?  Cost per click?  That would be okay too because it might be a high paying topic.  I had a $4 click from a bookmark site the other day. 

            Oh, perhaps it was a referral who earned?  I don't know how those show up but if you referred anyone then your Adsense ID rotates through their ads.

            Completely unrelated I also removed my Adsense ID from STM.  I was not earning ever.  I figured why have my ID somewhere that I'm not earning and put myself in jeopardy in case anything were to happen.

            Does that help at all?  There are people who DO earn there.  You might be cutting yourself off from earnings that you deserve.

        I joined Bukisa last year, but didn't do anything beyond signing up at the time. I forgot all about it until they sent me an email the other day saying they switched over to adsense. Now I'm wondering if it's worth another look?

          akeetlebeetleposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          I just left Bukisa. Their claim to fame was paying for impressions (you didn't even have to have an Adsense account, they paid through Paypal). Now, they're just like all the rest.

          As far as I'm concerned, Hub Pages is by far the best place for Adsense, so why stick with Bukisa. They hurt a lot of people by the switch and they never even gave us warning.

          I'll probably leave a couple of things up there that have links to them. At this point I don't care about the monetary value of those articles, but the rest (over 100) I'm bringing here.

      Your comment above that I quoted is incorrect, at least in part.  I commented on the other post, too.  I agree that BestReviewer and STM are hard to earn.   I don't like the pyramid thing.  But, they aren't revenue sites for writing articles.  They're backlink sites.  I don't use my adsense on STM.

      As for Seekyt if you have info on that one please post it because I've done my research w/the admin there and it is the same Adsense ID on each block of ads.  Sometimes you have to log out from sites to see what it is to readers.  That site doesn't use the pyramid ads.  Is there a reason you mention that site specifically? 

      I can't speak from experience on YST.

    There are many more, but these are the four (in addition to HP) that I personally earn money from.
