It looks like our Wikipedia page has not been updated since October of this year- would any of you be interested in spiffing it up? HubPages employees can't update the page themselves, but community members can!
If you are an established Wikipedia editor or contributor, we would especially like your help, though anyone can contribute- just be sure to leave out any promotional language and to follow the rules of the site when it comes to proper citation.
If you are willing to update some things for us on Wikipedia, here are some things that you might consider these points:
*In addition to embedding videos, external links, and reader surveys, authors can also embed photos and maps.
*To help people improve their online writing skills, we offer a Learning Center, contests, HubChallenges, and the Weekly Topic Inspiration program.
*We no longer include Kontera contextual ads as an option on Hubs
*Through the HubPages Ad program, HubPages serves ads from premium ad partners on Hubs in addition to AdSense Ads
*The way payment works on HubPages is now fairly different because of the HubPages Earnings Program (Hubbers still get paid by Google and Amazon directly, but through the HubPages Earnings Program, for example)
*We now have 24 people on our team (not 20)
Big thanks to anyone who takes a second to keep our Wikipedia page up to date!
I have never written any information on Wikipedia, but this is a good reason to start. Any pointers for an easy approach?
I'd be happy to help, but my fees are a bit steep. Kidding (about the latter part). Let me know what I can do.
Can do! I wasn't aware that employees weren't allowed to make updates to their company's wiki page but the rule does make perfect sense. I'll keep an eye on this for any further updates you guys would like added, ESP citations. Unfortunately my current Wikipedia account doesn't have many updates. (I abandoned my other wiki account because I didn't care much for the sn.)
Need anything else, just shoot me a note and I'll be glad to help.
I thought I will update and saw that it is already updated. I did small edits. I updated the employee number underneath the Key people. Whoever edited it had put 'To help people improve their online writing skills, Hubpages offer a Learning Center, contests, HubChallenges, and the Weekly Topic Inspiration program. Hubpages no longer include Kontera contextual ads as an option on Hubs. The way payment works on HubPages is now fairly different because of the HubPages Earnings Program (Hubbers still get paid by Google and Amazon directly, but through the HubPages Earnings Program, for example)
Hubpages now has 24 people on our team.' in reference section which I shifted to 'Structure'. Also it should not be 'our team' but their team as the edit is made as an outsider. Anything else needs to be done?
I'm curious why you'd feel it necessary to say HubPages no longer offer Kontera?
Surely the section called "Structure" should reflect the way the site is structured today.
If you feel it's important to have a historical record of how HubPages used to be run (e.g. change in payment method, Kontera, individual webpages instead of sub-domains etc etc) then that should be in the History section, but I'd have thought it wasn't really important enough to be worth mentioning?
OK, Simone, I added some information or rather clarified it a bit. Hope it helps.......
No problems... they use me a lot and were really interested to hear that HP also provides the Best Internet Christmas Party of all the sites courted by Google, HP Sauce Inc. and Fox (or was it ABC?)
Happy to help... When's the party????
How may Hubbers currently use Hubpages? How has that grown compared to 5 years ago.
"HubPages is where writers can park diagonally in a parallel universe."
Attribution: <snipped self-promotional link>
"HubPages is where the quickest bunnies in the forest hangout."
Attribution: same as previous post.
Hubpages has a forum where Hubbers come together to voice their opinions on God and other fascinating topics
And just why in the hell have I not been following you? I thought I was. I fixed that. Don't follow me back though. If you do, then current consensus says we are both weenies.
They not publish me text coz stoop I am.
Can I at least participate in a debate and talk withopinions. I've never made an habit with blogging but I'm trying to get involve.
Where are you?
Thanks for your help everyone! I appreciate the little changes.

Currently PayPal is the only payment method available for the HubPages Ad Program. In most countries, PayPal can only be used to send money. Funds in the PayPal account cannot be withdrawn by the PayPal account holders in those countries. In certain countries, PayPal cannot be used at all....

Currently I'm signed up with Google Adsense and I've been debating whether I should sign up for the Hubpages Earning Program because I'm hesitant to give out my tax information. Or should I worry about this only after I have a decent amount of traffic coming to my hubs?

I will try in short because I explored whole day about HubPages and I still need some confirmation how to proceed on best way if possible?Before 2 years I lost AdSense because of stupid reasons like wrong keywords (I know, I was rookie) and since it was impossible for me to check all blogs + posts...
