HubPages Market Place

  1. SunSeven profile image60
    SunSevenposted 7 years ago

    Just a thought only.

    Perhaps this is the right time to introduce the HP Market Place?

    With so many hubbers leaving, and so many disgruntled hubbers venting it in the forums, HP with so many new guidelines, this may be the time to introduce the trade feature here.

    Most non-tech savvy hubbers will not / or may not want to start their own sites and do not want to continue here, can trade their hubs for money with interested buyers.

    I, for one, am willing to buy out some hubs / hubbers acccounts.

    I am also, open to trade my hubs / sell my account to interested buyers too.

    What do you think, fellow hubbers? smile Considering the fact that revenue sharing sites for unhappy hubbers are sprouting like mushrooms everywhere! smile

    Best Regards

    edit: PS: Why dont I try too!

      The problem is that people would only ever be willing to sell hubs that had no value.

        Not necessarily. We will know only when such opportunity is in place.

        Anyway, it is desirable to be laissez-faire and caveat emptor. smile

          The idea sounds logical, but since HP is slowly transforming itself to a place of professional writers, probably it won't go well with HP's longterm business plan.

        As the saying goes, one man's trash is another's treasure. Then there's also the idea of value-add. I can see the appeal in buying well-written but low-performing articles and doing a number of things with them: applying a solid backlink strategy; optimizing for SEO; combining like topics into a new niche site. A kind of upcycling approach for someone who has the online marketing skills the original author didn't.

      Why aren't many people here interested in selling their dead articles? My instincts tell me this is a very good idea.

          You can bend my arm, but I'm not selling less that $0!

            Fantastic. If I let you keep the digits, will you transfer the cipher to me?

          that's my actual face....

          i would give it to you, but then I would be really cold up here in Canada in the winter time

    Great.

    Thanks a lot.

    Why dont we put it up for votes?

    Anyways, HP never really cared about user feedbacks. I have seen even the giant G trying to gauge users' feelings by way of odd feedbacks. Remember periodical Adsense surveys?

    Any way to add to a person's income online is always a good idea in my book.

  6. ngureco profile image83
    ngurecoposted 7 years ago

    Times are hard in this business after the panda update and I would suggest you reconsider lowering your priceā€¦

    I am thinking of buying (at next to nothing) only those articles that their owners feel have no value.
