How does Shine differ from Hubpages.

    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.

    Edit: And the site doesn't have a working help section OR terms of use. And I can't see anything about getting paid...

    On Hubpages you can earn money.

      I agree with you, If we are writing we should post it in high quality well ranked authority websites, in this way we can receive strong backlinks which BIG G. always love

    Thanks WryLit,
    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.
