is this a good blog site? How do people know about our blog? how do we get paid?
I think this is a good blog site! People know about your blog by adding many tags when you publish a Hub and by answering people's questions here! Also, the forum is a good place to get started. I know this site pays people but I do not know how it is done, sorry. Hope I helped.
This is not a blog site at all, this is a site where you write individual articles. This guide will give you all the background you need.
I know this is a bit late, but I will answer your question for others who might have the same question
HubPages is pretty much just like Jersey Jess said—this is a good blog site, but also like Uninvited Writer said, this site technically isn't for blogs. You write individual posts, which in a way makes it better than a blog site because a blog site usually has to do with one topic. In this site, you can write on almost any topic (with in rules of the site that is). People find your hubs when you post them. If you post a hub that is quite relevant to the times and people are searching the terms that you tagged in your post, you can get a lot of traffic from search engines. You can also get traffic from people just browsing around on HubPages. When people find your hubs and they like them, they will sometimes choose to follow you. When they follow you, they will receive an email every time you post a hub (the follower must have that option checked though). I will be your first follower. This is also a good site to start with if you want to get your own blog going, because this site has been around for a while and can easily be found in internet searches just because it is a site that has a good reputation, as to where a newly started blog may not rise to the top results of a search engine for months.
You can get paid by using this site through affiliate programs. You can choose to use as many of the following as you would like:
HubPages Ad Program
I currently only use AdSense, so I don't know what the others are like, but I assume they are very similar to AdSense. When you activate your Google AdSense account on your HubPages account (click my account, then earnings), ads will appear on your hubs. When people click those ads, you get money—usually it will only be a couple cents per click, but if you get enough, the money starts to build. The only bummer thing about it is that you have to get at least $100 worth of finalized earnings on AdSense before Google sends you a check.

Can your own blog get you more profit than Hubpages?With all the ups and downs, more downs than ups in my HubberScore, I am seriously considering working more with my personal blog, which is a subdomain but works with Google Adsense.

I'm getting tired of seeing that I've earned a little money (okay, very little money) every month, being told that I do have an Adsense account AND my Hubpages posts are linked to Paypal, yet I don't get any deposits.I thought for sure I'd find an answer to this issue in the forums, but I haven't...

Hello,I just started here at HP recently, and so far I'm less than impressed with it overall. I have two other blogs, (one url I own, the other is a wordpress blog) and I wanted to use HP for content that doesn't really fit in at my other blogs. I'm about to delete my HP account and just start...

The ad said: "Reason # 2 to Hub: Get paid to blog." I'm not sure what that means, but it seems as if it might mislead people about the difference between a hub and a blog.

I don't know how to change the URL on Google AdSense. When I go to google.com/adsense, it tells me to login, which I do successfully, and then it takes me straight to the resubmit screen for the HubPages account, which has been denied so frequently, because I do not have enough content. I...
