Hubpages is still a relatively untapped resource online, many people have never even seen it let alone used it. So after being asked about it several times I thought I’d write an article about it.
So what exactly is Hubpages?
Hubpages is a website that allows you to publish your content on their site free of charge. You simply sign up for an account, write your thoughts and publish them! You even get your own URL which is based at hubpages.com. This means that you do not even have to own your own website in order to publish your thoughts and ideas.
It is an excellent platform to use to publish your content because Hubpages is favoured by Google at the moment which means that your pages have a good chance of being ranked well in the search engine results pages, so you can get plenty of traffic. On average a Hub will be indexed by Google within 36 hours which is pretty fast!
The editor that Hubpages provide to you is also very well made and easy to use, it is split into ‘capsules’ which you can move around the page. For example you have a text capsule, a photo capsule, RSS feed capsules and more.
There are also some other capsules available which allow you to earn money from your Hubpages, you can earn money using Google Adsense, eBay and Amazon. In particular the eBay and Amazon capsules work very well because you can link to specific types of items which relate to you Hubpage. Therefore there is more chance of the visitor looking at and potentially buying the product that you are advertising. If they do then you get paid a percentage of the sale.
If you wish to take this a step further you can find hot selling products on Amazon, then write an article about them at your Hubpage. Then you simply type in the ASIN or ISBN number of that product and you will link directly to it! So the result will be an article about a product and then links to that product next to it. Even something simple like writing about the books that you have recently read, DVDs you’ve watched or music CDs you’ve listened to, can be effective ways of earning money. Think about it – Amazon sell just about anything! I’m sure there are plenty of items that you can write an article about.
It is also possible to establish yourself as a reputable author on Hubpages because you are assigned an overall Hubscore as an author which others can see. You can also gain fans who are kept updated of when you publish new Hubs, so it is possible to build up a good fan base using Hubpages.
