I don't blame her she has 53 followers and she put out her personal writings and pulled? what sense does that make, it is not like they are paying thousands of dollars from what I reviewed their pay is pennies
That depends on the writing, and many other factors. It again depends on the topics. Hubpages only pays people via the Hubpages Ads Program and Ebay Program. It's just starting to incorporate Amazon and Adsense.
However, using Google Adsense, which is a revenue-sharing program in and of itself, is part and parcel the problem and solution. Good content on specific topics with good keyword research backing it, can possibly make good money.
Otherwise, it makes pennies or a dime a day. Again, this depends on the topics.
The two pages below should be adequate enough to give anyone, everything they need to know to get started. It isn't that difficult to write here and the pay can be good for those who are really good writers.
You are being a bit naive here. Hubpages do insist on certain things, including no duplicate content (even if it is your own work and you have it published elsewhere), they also have rules about adult content, overly promotional content etc. Now even I have had Hubs unpublished for minor misdemeanors, and have for the most part been able to make adjustments that allowed them to be republished. Additionally I make an income that is worth having (as of recently) on Hubpages, but I am not 'paid', I write and people find and view my hubs. This is not the same as being 'paid well', you will only earn according to the quality of your writing, end of, this is not the same as getting wages.
I'm not saying anything about her writing, simply because there's presently too much that remains unknown about her writing. I'm not one of her followers and haven't read anything she had written.
So, what's your point in all this? I'm simply trying to make sense out her problem and with the lack of interaction on her part(not on yours), I'm only pointing out that there are rules and guidelines to follow with regards to writing on HP.
It appears since you weren't one of her followers you really are not a person I should be asking the question to then, maybe I should ask one of her 54 followers. I have been talking with the wrong person if I want to get the truth behind how this website operates, it appears I am just spending my wheels corresponding with you, can one of lyns followers respond.
drlyn is also under the assumption that followers actually read everyone's hubs, when the reality is that frequently a new hubber goes on a 'following spree' and follows loads of hubbers on the assumption they will automatically follow them back. Unfortunately some will, but usually out of courtesy rather than being genuine fans. Real fans follow without prompting in my experience.
Now starting to seriously wonder if drlyn is also lyns (original poster). You might notice (Cagsil) that the names are very similar
edit, plus times joined HP very close together lol.
yes, i have been here a little over 1 week and no hubs i guess because i do have a life outside of the internet but looking at most of the comments, on here you all have made this your life 477 hubs in 2 years 300 hubs in 4 years, i was not aware that this site was a job i thought it was another website on the internet
It is exactly what you make of it. If you embrace the TOS and write quality content, you'll find all of the people commenting here are very very helpful and will give you decent feedback and help you earn some residual income. That's the whole point - this site is aimed at making money (even though some write for the fun of it) and because of that, Hubpages has to set rules so that Google do not punish the site....that's the simple fact of life
Well 'toddle' along then and enjoy your 'non earning' life that exists away from the Internet and stop complaining about your alter ego/sock puppet, (you can look up that term) having their hubs unpublished. Apparently earning from hubs was never important to you anyway. Leave the rest of the 'real' writers to actually earn from quality hubs that fulfill the requirements of HP's rules.
But how wonderful for those who get to work from home and not get up when their 'job' dictates, and be self employed in their own right! Guess you might be more suited to the 9 - 5 though, doing whatever that might be!!!
I have to say I first read this comment as 'a wounded moose' and it did produce an amazingly funny mental vision. It is only upon a second reading I realised it said 'mouse', (I still prefer the moose vision though) lol.
Maybe you should all stop arguing about the reasons for the hubs being unpublished and instead FIND THEM OUT.
I think this example from a cached copy of Lyns hubs sums up the reason her hubs were unpublished:
"In case you were still waiting for Facebook charges as you see they are not going to happen. Face book to charge different packages for users coming in the future?, if you heard this rumor it is just that Face book has said they do not plan on ever charging members and that this information is false for those of you that is panicking or spreading the rumor, because this rumor was like wild fire and spread so fast Facebook finally address this rumor."
I haven't read all the hubs, but if they share similar grammar, punctuation and style then I'm unsurprised they were unpublished - probably as low quality.
And Lyns, for your information, there are people on the site who earn hundreds of dollars each month. But, like starting out in a minimum wage job, it takes TIME to learn the skills required to pull in lots of traffic and earnings from a hub. Just writing on willy-nilly, saturated and unoriginal topics won't get you there.
Wow. I just dropped in tonight to check out some forums. You all have made this pretty entertaining. I have a 9 to 5 and don't make much from this site, but I do like to write and think I can, at least, make a full sentence. If anyone wants to follow me just out of politeness, please feel free.
Sept. 25, 8:08 p.m.In the last few days, I have published these two new hubs:"15 Things That Will Rogers Did Not Say""Joan Jett Coaching in The NHL?"And through above date, I have received NOT one comment. I asked Christy at Team HubPages what was wrong or was it me who did...
You know, I see forum posts complaining about how the forums are boring or dying. I see people complaining about how there's all "Indian Aunties" hubs or picture hubs, how people don't edit, it's all marketing crap and nothing good to read... and then I find these amazing...
Have you noticed that the high earners on HubPages appear to follow very few writers themselves?Could it be said then, that it is more important to have a following than it is to follow back other writers and Are we spending too much time commenting at the cost of writing new content?
I was thinking that the hub hopping tool is great and all, but it doesn't really address hubs that are older and have slipped through the cracks for months and even years.I was thinking that we could have an adopt a topic program.For example, I've been writing a lot of hubs on Nepal and have looked...
What 3 things do you think someone w/o a lot of time can do to increase their earnings on Hub pages?What tips do you have for someone to increase their earnings on HP even if they don't have a lot of time to dedicate to writing several new hubs every week or even month?
