I am an inexperienced fresh graduate with great passion towards web technology. Im intrested to know how to build a website like hubpages? I would like to know the technology backend, frontend. Personally, im an admirer of Paul Edmondson the CEO of Hubpages.He has a great visoion to maintain a site like Hubpages and keep it different from other ordinary websites.Its one of my greatest dreams to work in hubpages or build a site like hubpages.
HP definitely has some educated engineers and business savvy people running the site. Have you read Paul's Edmondson's interview with Techcrunch in the Nov. blog entries?
If you read the About Us section, it gives a glimpse of the brains behind the site. http://hubpages.com/about/team
Drupal and Wordpress can both be hacked to create decent article directories. It would take a lot of work to make something as nice as HubPages though.
Wordpress can easily converted in to an article directory, polishing off either wordpress or drupal takes a whole lot of work though. I built the article directory This is Freelance and I ca safely say to get everything perfect is a neverending task.
HubPages is a custom software platform. You can create any website you want if you have one or more programmers who can handle the technology. You will also need servers and you will need to learn how to create large scale websites. A small website is easy but a website with a lot of content and traffic is a whole different story. Approaches that work for a small site don't work so well on a big site technically speaking.
Yeah.. I have read aboth the team.. they are only a few yet highly qualified most having Phds from world class institute. Well if its possible to tune wordpress and drupal. How do we incorporate the trackers and adsense affiliation program into them?
And thanks a lot for the techcrunh link rebekah!!!
Affiliate trackers and Adsense sharing are both pretty easy to implement to be honest, where it gets tricky is when you try to combine the two, I still haven't managed to get that working 100%
Let me guess how it might operate, new oracle and such database support scripts in C,C++ etc (we can manipulate the database using scripts). There must be a user object for which Adsense id is an attribute. This adsense id is dynamic when a tracker is spotted it or when the hubpage needs their share they change the adsense pub-id as necessary for specifict time period and change it back to the users defauld when its his turn.

Do you use article directories to get backlinks to your hubs? If so, which article directories do you use?

Just curious if anyone is using article directories like ezine, xomba and buzzle to drive traffic to your hubs. From what I understand about pageranks, if I write an article for ezine, even though ezine has a high pagerank, my article on ezine will have it's own pagerank...which will be low...

Well I guess there is a first time for everything. Someone copied my hub on Is California Going Bankrupt? They copied the whole thing, word for word without credit or where it came from. So I'm going to have to file a complaint I guess. I've had other hubs copied in forums but they were being...

How do you submit your hubs to article directories?if you submit your hub on other article directories, wouldn't it be considered as duplicate content by hubpages, how exactly do you submit articles on directories?

I read the success stories, but are there any hubbers that make 1000s on here? Curious on ones potential.\I know "some" successful full-time affiliates make 1000s from adsense, but any exclusive to hubpages?
