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.

      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?
