Sorry for a perhaps naive question but I wonder what are main differences between articles on Shine and Hubpages.
Well for one thing I found it almost impossible to find Shine Articles in the search engines - it has a PR1 which is lower than my average worst personal site. Hubpages has a PR6 which means your work will have a much higher visibility in the search engines.
On Hubpages you can earn money.
I noticed that there were some ads on Shine but had no idea whether they pay the author or not. Thanks for clarifying this.
To my understanding, Shine is an internal Yahoo escape blog, so getting visibility outside their engine would be challenging. In addition, if not mistaken, the topics are designed to pull mainstream (big media) interest for news, fashion and more. So the likes of Cosmo and McD's relevant posts is what would fit into their search criteria. I actually had a user come to Foodicle from Shine, but apparently they were not happy that AdSense denied them.
HP is an all around, and well rounded, topical platform.
And as WryLit pointed out, you can earn real money publishing on HP.

I am experiencing that there is a very small traffic to my Hubs from Hubapages. It shows just 2 to 4 pages per day. On the other hand, the traffic sent from search engines is very high. Have you experiencing same thing? Can anybody tell me how to get traffic from Hubpages to my Hubs?
