Introduction to Hubpages Alternatives

Hubpages is without a doubt one of the greatest article directories on the Internet. It provides great Google rankings, free backlinks, easy monetization and a fantastic community atmosphere. But sometimes you still need some Hubpages alternatives. Afterall, you need external backlinks as well as just being able to link to yourself in Hubpages. The best way to get these backlinks is to sign up to some free Hubpages alternatives.

What you really need for a Hubpages alternative is something that is free to join, has some Monetisation method to allow you to earn, and has dofollow backlinks, allowing you to pass on that link juice (PR) to your Hubpages.

Fortunately there are some great Hubpages alternatives out there which can help increase your SEO and get your articles to the top of Google!

Why Use a Site Other Than Hubpages?

As I mentioned in my introduction, it is important to have Hubpages alternatives in your article portfolio. To get to the top of Google you need to interlink your websites so that you get a wide variety of high value backlinks.

While you can just link from one Hub to another, these internal links are of a lower value. For this reason it helps immensely if you can generate some external backlinks to your content with Hubpages alternatives.

So What Are the Best Hubpages Alternatives?

There are a wide variety of Hubpages alternatives out there which provide free do follow backlinks and monetization, along with some Hubpages alternatives which just provide the backlinks. You might also want to check out my list of the best article directories!

I will list here some of my facorite websites which provide a great Hubpages Alternative!

      Hi Shaz,

      Yes, can be a good source of backlinks, however the actual Wordpress software is a very powerful tool if you feel like buying your own domain and hosting!

      DevHub is a great mix of Hubpages, blogger and Squidoo in my opinion. It provides some amazing features and can create a wide variety of different homepage styles.

      You are right, even the hubs on hubpages needs some good backlinks to rank higher in search engines. I will need to take a look at DevHub, it is new to me, or I cant remember using it.

      Thanks for the shared info.

      I have to check some of these out. Thank you. When I first read the title, I thought it was going to be an article based on dissatisfaction with H.P, but other than that great work. I wonder, would it be possible to add your insight on some of these as well? personal experiences, maybe?
